I'm Mordecai P. Martin, but you can call me Mo. I write about Judaism, my life as a New Yorker who no longer lives in New York, cities, solidarity, my wife Atenea, my cat Pharaoh-Let-My-People-Go the Cat, and sometimes I get silly.
AMA Sex Ed edition! 🍒
Hi y’all! Happy Thursday! 🌟
I really miss doing anonymous questions with my students so here’s a chance to ask any/all questions about sex, health, or relationships you may have had on your mind!
Unlike my students, you can also ask me personal questions and I’ll answer within reason!
If y’all really enjoy this, I’m also happy to make this a regular thing! 🍒
Letting go of heroes, which I think Ursula le Guin is right as identifying a perniciously patriarchal story form, will by necessity also mean letting go of deciding whether we like a character based on their morality or the viewpoint they represent. Similarly, letting go of carceral justice will mean reading about characters who make mistakes and cause suffering and are not punished for it and are not judged for it.
If your concern is the morality of your piece, well, first of all, is that a productive concern? Art needs a moral position, a moral dimension, but must it depict a moral universe when no such universe is known to humanity? And secondly, the only way to judge the morality on display in the piece is to first write it.
