how to be sexy wearing a full body condom
Swimsuits for strict Muslim women.

The thing I find funny about those pictures is that the poses are mostly the same ones you'd find in a Victoria's Secret catalouge. They're covered head to toe, but they're pretty women striking poses that, if not explicitly sexual, are certainly intended to make the wearer attractive.

Dosen't that defeat the purpose? We aren't suppossed to see these people as attractive; from my understanding, we aren't suppossed to see them at all. The swimsuits should be displayed on a hanger, or a mannekin, or maybe a beefy woman standing straight up, like for a mug shot.

Every once in a while, we'd drive past an exercise field in Iraq. Women in a fundamentalist Muslim society are, of course, suppossed to stay covered head to toe when in public no matter what they're doing. Some, when they aren't busy mowing the lawn or being beaten by their husbands, like to get some exercise. So they'd go down to the local running track and do a few laps. With every square inch of their body draped in several layers of black fabric. In case you don't know, it is very hot in Iraq. I think maybe it was an attempt at suicide.

But you have to admire that dedication. I can't get my lazy ass off the couch long enough to go to the air-conditioned weight room in my apartment complex.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
