about 2faced1.com

"2FACED1 is a visionary digital network,  a loose collective with members in Europe, Africa and North America, bound together by what we call ‘stereotypophobia’."


 

Stereotypophobia

“It is all about critical questioning of what identity really is. Would you be the same person in another context? Does society have certain expectations on you based on traditional parameters like class, gender, color, sexual orientation, religious beliefs and so on? And how much do these expectations affect your so-called self? Every forward thinking person are aware of those things, its a gift which  also make you relate to other peoples struggles.”

Analbleaching and ID - or What’s Natural?

Post date Thu 20 Aug 2009 3:34 AM

SUMMER, SUN AND SWEATY ASSES. THE BEACHES LOOK LIKE 

THEY'RE FILLED WITH GIANT PIECES OF MOZARELLA, BUT IT'S JUST
THE WHITE MIDDLE CLASS PEOPLE FLASHING
THEIR BODIES. I
CAN'T STOP STARING. IT'S BEEN 10 MONTHS OF DARKNESS. THE
ONLY UNDRESSED BODIES I'VE SEEN HAVE BEEN EDITED HOTTIES
IN COMMERCIALS, SKINNY FASHION MODELS OR BOOB JOB PORN
STARS. AND NOW; SWEET REALITY. 
BEER KEGS, ASS GRASS AND
SAGGY (read:“real”) TITS. I NEED MY NIP/TUCK SURGEONS TO RE-
STORE MY MTV WORLD.

Illustration: Karin RobertsIllustration: Karin RobertsIt’s been a while since I understood BARBIE’s just a plastic surgery, ideal woman who doesn’t even have a cunt. From then, I’ve really tried hard to make up my mind about the matter. Theoretic MASTURBATION and social analysis. But even though I’m improving, I’m still a brainwashed, fascist product of society. And there, somewhere in between, we are.

Trying to be political correct, but still (the norm of) beauty is killing us. The naked body is as culturally rooted as the dressed one. A living MICHAEL JACKSON is a FREAK, but a dead one a HERO. This is a world were you can’t bleach more than your anus if you don’t wanna be harassed for life. It’s 2009, and white, male, heterosexuals are still the template. If you can’t fit into the category, you’re sorted into the rest of the constructed categories based on if you’re having a cock or a cunt, what color of SKIN you have and who you’re changing body fluids with. Each category with its own rules to follow if you wanna appear NORMAL. It’s still a Barbie world, nothing is real. We just rather not talk about it. 

Michael couldn’t pass as a (HU)MAN. Whatever he wanted or not wanted, he fucked with the given identities, from black man to white woman? While I was born straight into the privileges of a caucasian, he was busy fixing his nose to look a little bit less like a black man. Call it unnatural or insane. The mainstream judgement is uncompromising and hard core – some alterations just can’t pass. And that’s why you’ll be reduced from a (hu)man to a freak. Still, Michael was subversive. He transcended the norms we’ve made into natural truths. But what’s TRUE? Often the truth is the least threatening alternative. What doesn’t move the balance of power. The “natural” is SAFE.

Some kind of hypocrite bullshit we refer to so we can remain as the post-colonial bleached ASSHOLES we are forever.

Hello God!

Hello God! I don’t belive in you. I think you’re an asshole and I know you hate me for that. However, you should be a little bit more kind. I mean, you´re the fucking God. It’s ridiculous you even give a shit about me.

I’m fine with your punishments after everytime I tried to have some fun. I can handle hang overs, anxiety and aids. It’s okey. But this building renovation you’ve started on my block some weeks ago is too much. I wake up every morning to a noise sounding like it ’s the third world war going on. I’m almost about to kill myself. But of what I’ve heard, suicide is a not the solution to end my suffering either. Not believing in you apperently means a trip straight to hell. The place were everyone has to wear ugly clothes and eat shit in all eternity. I rather stay alive.

I understand it must suck to be you, God. You couldn’t even fuck Virgin Mary properly in fear of how the world would turn out with an uncontrolled female sexuality. Or maybe this obsession of virginity was all about your own non existing genitals? Is that your biggest shame, God? Is that why you are so scared of people who doesn’t fit your constructed categories of human beings?

I’ve already figured it out. This world is just the result of your own hatred to yourself. Your plan was to make Virgin Mary pregnant. To get a human son of a bitch to spread your conservative shit propaganda all over the world. But you couldn’t make her pregnant. You couldn’t and you still can’t fuck. And then she fucked some random bastard. You got jealous, made up a heterosexual fascist norm and turned all women into sluts if they didn’t come to behave like your false illusion of Virgin Mary.

You really are an asshole God. Now it´s nothing else but fair that I blame you for shutting down my closest subway station too. And don’t think this is the last you´ll hear from me. This is only my personal displeasure with you. I’ll be back with a proper telling-off about your oppressive structure of society.
