I just realized that the lack of acceptance for asexuals is literally the dumbest thing.
Like, you can’t handle the thought of two dudes kissing? Okay you’re dumb and terrible whatever.
But you can’t handle the idea… Of someone… Not kissing anyone? What are you worried about? They’re gonna eat too much mac n cheese?? Draw too many dinosaurs??? Tell me
So you can’t just hint at a historical gangster orgy in tags and not elaborate. This sounds like vital information that the world must know.
"According to a report hidden away in the files of the US Narcotics Bureau, at some point during Sinatra’s stay in Havana, he and Luciano took part in an orgy together. The details were corroborated by Robert Ruark, a syndicated newspaper columnist who was the first to report on Sinatra’s arrival in Cluba. In an in-house memorandum that Ruark wrote to his executive editor at the New York World-Telegram, Ruark noted, “I was told my Mr. Larry Larrea [Hotel Nacional general manager] that Frank Sinatra was vacationing in Havana and – to Mr. Larrea’s evident horror – was spending most of his waking hours with Lucky Luciano, Mr. Luciano’s bodyguar, and an assorted group of gangsters and hoodlums.” In a face-to-face meeting with the general manager, Ruark was informed that Sinatra, at that very moment, was upstairs with Luciano.
“I wouldn’t advise going up there,” Mr. Larrea warned the columnist. “The best you can expect is to get thrown out. They are pretty tough fellows. They’ve got a lot of women with them, and I don’t know how much they’ve been drinking.” …
The orgy at the Hotel Nacional caused quite a stir. An informant later told the FBI that “a planeload of girls” had been sent to Havana courtesy of the Fischetti brothers. They were supplied for “a party at the Hotel Nacional attended by Sinatra.” Along with Luciano, another guest at the party was Al Capone’s younger brother, Ralph.
In the midst of a ribald bacchanalia, somehow a contingent of Catholic Girl Scouts escorted by a Catholic nun were allowed to visit Sinatra’s suite. According to an account preserved in the files of the Narcotics Bureau, the Girl Scouts were there to present Sinatra with an award of some sort and had been allowed past security “through a series of disastrous mistakes by various personnel.” The call girls were quickly hidden away in a back bedroom. When the Girl Scouts entered the suite, there were bottles on the floor, lingerie was hanging from lampshades, and the air was filled with the stench of stale perfume. Sinatra entered the front room in a robe and silk scarf as if nothing were wrong. The ruse was exposed when four naked bodies fell giggling into the front room. The nun and her charges quickly left the suite in a state of shock.” (Havana Nocturne, pp 41-43)
AND IF THIS IS NOT HILARIOUS ENOUGH ON ITS OWN, MIND YOU, THE NACIONAL WAS THE HOTEL MEYER HAD A STAKE IN. IMAGINE, IF YOU WILL, HIS FUCKING FACE.
We should teach young boys to respect women, but we should also teach young girls to respect women. Women should not see each other as enemies, but as allies. Stop telling young girls that the best they can be is “not like other girls”.
- me: i am actually so happy with my life right now for once
