Certo che quel furbastro del Vasari la sapeva lungae ci vedeva lungo!!! Possedeva il talento dell’indagine attenta e scrupolosa, la dell’affondo deciso: mirava e faceva centro sul bersaglio!! Con questo non oso assolutamente asserire che le altre creazioni del genio di Borgo Sansepolcro facciano piet! Per carit di Dio, vi prego di non fare equazioni! Ma vero (o almeno per il sottoscritto appare) che l’affresco in questione “lungamente” osannato dalla storiografia dell’ultimo mezzo millennio fra le opere pi riuscite dedicate al tema pasquale cristiano. E poich oggi, secondo il vigente calendario gregoriano, che crediate o no, si festeggia la vigilia di quell’evento “prodigioso”, ho creduto (bene o male poca importa) di stendere due righe su un capolavoro di Piero che non ha certo alcun bisogno della mia presentazione, ma che, al contrario, si presenta magnificamente, gi, da solo.

One girl said to me, “Usually the opposite of a negative is a positive, but when you’re talking about girls and sex, the opposite of slut is prude, both of which are negative. So what are you supposed to do?” So they’re always trying to walk this line where they’re not considered slutty, but they’re not considered too [much of a] prude. It’s an ever shifting kind of dynamic, so part of that was getting rid of virginity, which often was something they did drunk, not necessarily with someone they cared that much about, and you really have to ask, is that really experience? Is the person who rushes toward intercourse wasted getting more experience than the person who spends three hours making out with a partner sober and exploring ideas about sexual tension and pleasure and what feels good? We have this weird idea, and I think that our emphasis on virginity right now is not doing girls any favors, and of course it also completely disregards gay girls..
