THE PROVOCATEUR

DEAR PERSON I HAVE NEVER MET,

DO ENJOY YOUR BODY, ENJOY SEX, MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR FEELING/BEING SEXUAL, SEEK SEXUAL FULFILLMENT (THE INSISTENCE ON AN ORGASM IS NOT WRONG), SEEK QUALITY. THE SEXUAL ACT BELONGS TO YOU AS MUCH AS ANYONE ELSE. YOU ARE NOT JUST A WITNESS TO THE FULFILLMENT OF OTHERS.

DON’T SAVE YOURSELF FOR MARRIAGE UNLESS YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT IT IS WHAT YOU WANT TO DO. SEE WHAT’S OUT THERE, EXPERIMENT, TRY DIFFERENT PEOPLE ON FOR SIZE, EXPLORE GENDERS, AND ORIENTATIONS.

EXPECT EQUALITY, DEMAND IT. MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR WANTING IT.

DON’T DIM YOUR LIGHT, YOUR POWER, YOUR TALENTS, YOUR INTELLIGENCE, YOUR PERSONALITY, YOUR IDEAS, YOUR PERSPECTIVE, YOUR VISION, YOUR DREAMS, YOUR DESIRES FOR ANYONE. THEY WON’T THANK YOU FOR IT OR NOTICE YOUR EFFORTS, AND THEY MIGHT EVEN HATE YOU FOR IT. YOU CAN’T MAKE ANOTHER PERSON BRIGHTER OR HAPPIER BY MAKING YOURSELF SMALLER. TAKE UP SPACE, BE YOURSELF, ENGINEER YOUR OWN HAPPINESS, DESIGN YOUR OWN LIFE.

SEEK OUT THOSE WHO MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD WHEN YOU ARE WITH THEM. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR WELL BEING. AVOID THOSE WHO STRESS YOU OUT, HURT YOU, WANT TO DIMINISH YOU.

SEEK PEACE, CONTENTMENT, HAPPINESS. THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO BE A SOURCE OF ALL THESE THINGS FOR OTHERS AROUND YOU.

“THAT WILL DO PIG. THAT WILL DO.”

LOVE ALL, HATE NO ONE.

PEACE OUT MOTHERFUCKERS,
SHIRLEY MANSON
