The human is the most interesting species on this planet and that's where my interest lay. My passion is understanding people.
Other than that I love hip hop, videogames, anime, academia, art, all types of shit and most of all, black people.
Under slavery, production and reproduction were inextricably linked. Reproduction served not only to increase the labor force of slave owners but also by, “domesticating” the enslaved, facilitated the process of social control. Simultaneously, the enslaved responded to dehumanizing conditions by focusing on those aspects of life in which they could express their own desires. Sex was an area in which to articulate one’s humanity but, because it was tied to attempts to “define oneself as human,” gender roles, as well as the act of sex, became badges of status. To be male was to be the stud, the procreator; to be female was to be fecund, and one’s femininity was measured by the ability to attract and hold a man to bear children.
