Hate, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal is thinking about the notion of enlarging his solid Fiction Corpus with more literature books; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I trust in the prospect of enacting English as the world's second language. I do question the formalistic plan by which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Reenforcing one's handiness with a language isn't like promoting a hotter kiln. A language - a living tongue - is not just an instrument that you can learn to use with greater amounts of precision. A living language can not be ripped from the prevailing culture of a circle of people of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

To make people recite English is to strip them of its cultural context. A good teacher has to create a strategy for introducing it; the prudent pupil ventures out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. A decent dictionary will define words based on a particular corpus, a body of written works of various scope and consistency. This corpus could contain everything from a book about literature to a lot of elaborate fictions. I lost many a night creating my "solid" Fiction Corpus to form a unique sort of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have pieced together a million words and I have scrutinized them, reshaping them - not merely to teach the English tongue but to promote the human soul, and to pressure that spirit or soul not just to recite but to happen.

Help Prevent Self-destructive behaviour With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

On Monday, I arrived in Europe. By Wednesday I had bought a car. By Friday I had met the woman who a few months later would end up having travelling 6,000 miles across Europe with me.

I had come to Europe to experience European naturism, a movement whose philosophy matched my aesthetic of body acceptance and whose organizational structure and leadership I had thought almost exclusively restricted to the western half of the continent. I was shocked to learn that naturism had an official home in Poland, a country not especially known for its liberal culture. I was less shocked to discover that the home was owned by a Dutchman, but even more shocked to learn that it had been largely built by Margo.

From America I brought with me the American can-do spirit. She saw the car that I had bought, the terrible camp stove I had borrowed, and my sundry canned goods and challenged me to make-do. In my optimism I assured her that if we lacked for anything I would make up the difference. She assured me that if she lacked for anything she would find her way to the nearest airport and fly home. Luckily that never happened.

6,000 miles. One car. One tent. We started learning how to listen. We started learning how to open up. We started cooperating. Even when we were angry, even when it was so difficult that it didn't seem like it would turn out well, we stuck it out. We completed the trip and we came back happy. We had beaten the devil on the road. Back home more devils were waiting to abuse us. More anger. More fear. More sadness. This time we were prepared. This time we had each other and we could harken back to the joy and the trust and the suprise that 6,000 miles had created. We could remember what it was like to live in one tent.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Hate

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word hate in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word hate, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word hate is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Hate in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

"My bladder is so terrible," she said, going into the forest. "I hate it so much."

"What's she saying?"

Verses 720-721 from the chapter called Security

"You think I like being so absurd? I hate it! I hate being ridiculous, but I can't help myself."

Verse 485 from the chapter called Security

Zoe laughed and fell back. They were having fun. "Whatever," she said.

Verse 712 from the chapter called Security

Cities were the easiest to control; that's where it was hardest to burn coal. Towns (depending on the number of large buildings equipped with central heating) were, on the whole, less easy. The countryside was uncontrollable (at night, who could see the smoke?) but this fact was tempered somewhat by the presence of Reserve Army troops and Polish troops who were still looking for terrorists. In fact, in the southwestern part of Poland, terrorist attacks in the countryside were becoming more and more frequent. Dispersed from Wroclaw, the terrorists, who, theoretically, had been headed northeast to the area south of Warsaw (that is, the spaceport), having lost whatever element of central command they might have once possessed, or else, not having anything better to do with their time except terrorizing the countryside, had, in general, devolved into a type of terrorist activity that is more accurately described as banditry and brigandage. Their participation in coal traffic was suspected if not assumed.

Verse 25 from the chapter called Security

"They've got a bouncer," he said, "who stands in front of the door to the stairs non-stop. He's a big one. He doesn't even need to check a list. He knows everybody who's allowed up inside the lounge or whatever. New people have to be introduced always - no matter what - even if you're part of a group and you're having all kinds of fun, he's not gonna let you just sneak on by. I've seen it. The deejay booth's all the way on the other side of the dance floor, but I've seen it. All I have to do is flash the LED lights. Then that whole place back there lights up like a goddamn carnival. Otherwise, it's too dark to see anything.

Usage of Hate in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

Macy had adopted a very serious demeanor; leaning back on the couch across from me, the distance between us now unfathomable, I knew, even from the corner of my failing eye, that the tension on his face was betraying the turmoil of his body. My head turned itself back to his, and with my twitching eye under his control, a feeling of dread began to well in my stomach; I wondered what I had done. As he said my name, twice, softly and slowly, he lifted himself and said, "I have always loved you, always - from the very beginning. I stressed and sweated my love, hoping that our friendship would somehow in someway, in whatever context, allow me to say that I loved you. But you were always too careful, and I was too afraid to risk our relationship. You were too precious." These were not his exact words mind you. I paraphrase for the sake of poetic brevity, but I do assure you that my reconstruction captures the essence of his speech.

– Title 1, Regarding Peaches and Bananas, Part 2, Section 7, Trying to Kiss, Paragraph 8

I sat down right next to Indiana; we looked at the clock. She said she would go home now. I told her I would take her. She said that she would drive herself. I told her not to argue. She started crying. I looked at the clock. She tried to control herself, and, partly succeeding, I asked her if she were ready. She started to nod; but I wasn't convinced, and I was right. She started crying once again. So I turned to her and tried to calm her down. "I am so stupid," she said. "I'm only crying now because I ruined your party; I'm still doing it." I told her not to worry, that whatever was happening the party was unimportant. "Oh A. Jo Ann," she said, "It is important. It is very important. If you can't have a good party then what can you have?" I told her how silly that was, and besides, we had a great party. "But it's not even midnight," she said. I smiled at her, and wiped away her last tears. "Come on," I said, "I'll take you home."

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 30, Presenting Oneself to a Potential Husband, Paragraph 10

My heart is ready to shatter: it has never been one for acrobatics and all this constant tumbling is making me sick. Can you not write something for me? something that will quiet my rumbling heart? It yearns to hear your true voice, and it cannot sustain itself on a few telephone calls. My heart will not respond to the tones of a magnetic diaphragm, even though my ear be fooled, and my mind be well aware that you, however indirectly, are in complete control of its vibrations. I hate telephones: they are diabolical; they steal one's voice and I will give them no more credit than they deserve. They are good for sharing nothing but the most basic information. So unless you have to tell me when to pick you up from the airport, you should think twice before bothering to call me.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 8, Loneliness, Paragraph 4

ANDY: Good. It's just like the seasons. It's like winter turning into summer. Because sometimes the Lord will be very close to us: and we shall have to rejoice. But then sometimes the Lord will be a bit farther away, and we'll just go about our business, whatever business we have - until he comes to visit us again.

OLYMP: I would like that.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 6, The Sixth Day, Part 1, Children & Education Reform, Section 2, Discussing Heaven with a Child, Paragraphs 88-89

MÉL: They like to keep it a secret. They keep changing the password, anyway.

NIKE: Madame Bocelli?

MÉL: How did you know?

NIKE: What do I look like? I'm a socialist.

"The Chinese say the Emperor went to great lengths to please her. He had her entire village re-created with a functioning mosque and a bazaar. Jujube trees were imported. They bore golden fruit.

Usage of Hate in Sorry Ms. Jackson

Chiseled letters from an ancient stone tablet hanging on a wall

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

GREY GOOSE: Open your eyes. Do you know what I was trying to do here? Look at this place. It's a god-damn mess.

FLETCHER: You were only trying to help.

GREY GOOSE: I wasn't. I was trying to please Kokomo. That dishwasher wasn't a gift for your mother. It was a gift for her.

FLETCHER: Don't expect me to believe Mother's story that all this time you've been chasing after the cook.

GREY GOOSE: Things changed the moment your mother convinced herself that she's falling in love with that Kiwi.

FLETCHER: Lesbian is not going to stay here. I doubt Mother would just pack up and leave. All we have to do is be patient. We have to ride this thing out without losing our heads and without letting anybody catch the two of them going at it - whatever the hell it is they do together, which can't be much. They probably just kiss and talk about running off to get married in Spain. Regardless, we can't afford to take any chances - not with our reputation as low as it is.

GREY GOOSE: I argued with her today - not because it was necessary - because I desired it. I shouted what I should never murmur without her permission.

FLETCHER: What are you talking about?

GREY GOOSE: I called her a whore - not because I was roping Luke -because she turned me on. It made me angry to feel so helpless. I argued with Kokomo so that I could be close to her: so that I could breathe in her scent. That's all this stupid dishwasher business was about. Did I say it was a gift? It wasn't a gift. It was a ploy.

FLETCHER: Stay away from her.

– ACT I, lines 1237-1246

FLETCHER: I'm telling you.

ALICE: It's not bad.

FLETCHER: To covet your neighbor's wife?

ALICE: It's not against the law in Australia.

FLETCHER: What if I were to tell you I did something bad: something that is against the law: would it change your mind?

ALICE: It depends on what it is you did.

FLETCHER: Or what I didn't do.

ALICE: Whatever it is, you can tell me.

FLETCHER: I've never told anybody.

ALICE: It's okay. You can tell me.

– ACT II, lines 173-182

FLETCHER: Kokomo is a confirmed Catholic. She was filled with the strength of the Holy Ghost.

ALICE: I didn't know axe-wielding was one of His gifts.

FLETCHER: I'll have to ask my catechist the next time we meet.

ALICE: Are you a catechumen?

FLETCHER: I'm an inquirer. Kokomo is my ever patient sponsor.

ALICE: Was that before she caught you?

FLETCHER: I suppose I wanted her to find it. She has a point, as far as art is concerned. Whatever one thinks of its medicinal uses, it can't cure a lack of imagination.

ALICE: The sensory awareness it provides or the perception of time one experiences under its influence can benefit pursuits like contemplation or flower arrangement.

FLETCHER: What's made you such a passionate partisan? Have you partaken of the peace pipe?

ALICE: Occasionally. It's been more often than that. I used to work for a florist. There was never any reason not to smoke. To be completely honest, I accidentally brought some with me.

– ACT II, lines 121-130

FLETCHER: You were trying to sneak away.

MS. JACKSON: Listen.

Usage of Hate in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

I almost called the police. On my own mother. The look in her eyes as I restrained her. Sight unseen. So full of spite and hate. Towards her own son. If her husband hadn't come to take her upstairs I would've done it. She wasn't backing down.

– from “The Backed-Up Toilet,” a literature story based on what really happened, namely to the author

I hate the English language. It's too curt. Rape. Suck. Lick. Bitch. Fuck. You. If the words had more syllables they wouldn't be so forceful. Deflowerment. Inhalation. Female Dog. Copulating. Those words don't inflame people's passions.

– from “The Backed-Up Toilet,” a literature story based on something that actually happened, namely to the author

I'm not ashamed of what I am. Jesus ate with the prostitutes, you know. He drank with them. Why shouldn't I take care of them. I'm just a manager. Call me whatever words you want but I'm just management. Maybe management is a dirty word to some people but it doesn't make it a bad job.

– from “The Testament of Publio Orazio,” a horror story without a lot of knives coming straight out of Roman mythology

Those other guys weren't cowards. People think I hated them. I didn't hate them. They were doing their thing. Their father was a judge. Our father was a capo. You know. Why wouldn't they go into the family business. They were part of the system. The government. If I was one of them I would've done the same thing. Their way of life was to come to our homes and ruin our way of life. It was a war.

– from “The Testament of Publio Orazio,” a horror story based on good intentions coming straight out of Roman mythology

My success is built not just on courage and understanding but the worst and most disgusting kind of fear and anger. I cannot separate the two. I keep reaching the same conclusion. That there must be some kind of good in evil. A conclusion which I immediately reject. And come back to. Again and again.

The Body Acceptance Calendar

A really good idea for a monthly calendar

If a 45-year-old businesswoman and hard working mother of three kids is going to pose nude for a calendar, it's gonna have to be a good one. Margo didn't start a coffee shop called the Vagina Cafe to win her favors from the establishment. Even as she dishes out prizes to the 20 women who placed last in the twentienth anniversary run of her town's biggest road race, her business, unlike everyone else, doesn't get mentioned. She was an official sponsor for Christ's sake! But the announcer just couldn't swallow his patriarchy and get the words "Vagina Cafe" out of his mouth. That's not something a proper gentleman would say in front of a crowd of humble God-fearing "ladies" who cherish their modesty! And a Body Acceptance Calendar is certainly not what a humble God-fearing book-seller like a Barnes and Noble would put on their shelves! So how do I expect to sell this in the mainstream? Maybe if you download the free versions a thousand billion times it might help. Start downloading.
