There’s this book, A Billion Wicked Thoughts, and it’s about search data and it argues that men prefer visuals and women prefer stories. I do think that men tend to be more visual but visuals work on women. Visuals work on me, I just didn’t want them to. I experienced getting turned on by something like that with panic and anxiety. When I let myself recognize that it was happening, that it was me by myself, it didn’t mean anything about the world, it didn’t mean that I was objectifying myself. There was no false consciousness, the will of the sovereign subject wasn’t being imposed on me.
It was me and my feeling and a computer, it made me feel more confident.
