the only discernible goal for anyone on this site is the development of a cult of personality for no particular end other than feeding the ego
i feel like there are cultural narratives about friendship that are totally apolitical
and that prioritize the romantic couple above all other kinds of micro-level social couplings—as the only kind of relationship that merits deprioritizing individual choice or whatever and other kinds of friendships, even lifelong ones, as jokes, essentially, and certainly as secondary to kinship relationships and sexual relationships
i mean foucault writes about this in friendship as a way of life, other people have too
and whatever obviously friendship falls inside the bounds of capital/obviously friendships are political
and im just interested in being oppositional with my friendships i guess, part of that is an ethic of care
none of this is anything new but i never stop being surprised when people are deeply shitty to one another in intimate friendships and how sort of baldly that opens people up to capitalistic logics (especially people who espouse any kind of oppositional politic)
“im alone in this world so i gotta look out for me”
i am jaded about a great many things i have no right to be jaded about, but friendship for whatever reason is not one of them
probably because of how much i love my friends and how random they are??? you do the math
So much Liam/Harry violence!
