English, Motha Fucka, Do you speak it!?!
Opens June 13:
Christopher Payen and Alpha Mason
Jack Hanley Gallery, 327 Broome St., NYC
Since the late eighties, Christopher Payen and Alpha Mason have worked under various names in parts of the United Kingdom before breaking from British Suburbia in 2001 for the French countryside. Now under the pseudonym “Chris Hipkiss”, the result of their 20+-year collaboration is a singular and multifarious visual language. Populating these vast, subsuming metropolises and more intimate scenes of a city’s interior, their vocabulary reflects long-developed interests in politics, travel, ornithology, as well as feminism and femininity.
the principal at my school made an announcement yesterday that the girls need to start covering up and then i found this in the hallway
Really? This person is really going to pretend that men think ENTIRELY different from women. Shows their age/ignorance. Why do women(and girls) ignore men over and over again when they explain to them that they are VISUAL creatures. It takes effort to control sexual desires as a man. Most women don’t think of most of the men they meet everyday in a sexual way. Unlike men who do. They say they do. So having rules regarding attire that isn’t overly revealing isn’t illogical or overbearing. It makes sense. But so many young people are so idealistic and lack any nuance into their philosophy of life(the same philosophy on life that will inevitably change with time and experience).
Wait, you mean to tell me that you think men should practice self-restraint and discipline? Omg you lack nuance in your philosophy of life.
When men find women attractive, we can’t do our work. We just have to stare! We can’t focus on anything else. We’re visual creatures. Not staring takes an effort. You want to know what doesn’t take effort though?
Repeatedly removing girls from their classrooms and having personal conversations with them. Calling their parents to tell them what a slut their daughter looks like today. Writing them up for wearing revealing clothes and sitting with them through hour-long detentions. That doesn’t take effort at all. Let’s do that instead.
Because God forbid I just do my fucking schoolwork instead of staring at a girl with spaghetti straps on.
