I had a dream last night that humans had figured out a way to open up a slice of an alternate dimension on Neptune, but that it was only one hundred feet wide, and was essentially a HUGE highway. So this slice of a dimension was just basically surrounded by nothingness and fog, but what you had were goods and materials being harvested from Neptune being transported down this enormous highway to what I presumed was some kind of shipping center. But for some reason there was also a beach at the very, very end of the highway that had a wooden roller coaster right next to the ocean. In an alternate reality space, controlled by humans, on Neptune.
The best part was the space craft/suit I dreamed up.
“[I]magine what would happen if, instead of centering our beliefs about heterosexual sex around the idea that the man “penetrates” the woman, we were to say that the woman’s vagina “consumes” the man’s penis. This would create a very different set of connotations, as the woman would become the active initiator and the man would be the passive and receptive party. One can easily see how this could lead to men and masculinity being seen as dependent on, and existing for the benefit of, femaleness and femininity. Similarly, if we thought about the feminine traits of being verbally effusive and emotive not as signs of insecurity or dependence, but as bold acts of self-expression, then the masculine ideal of the “strong and silent” type might suddenly seem timid and insecure by comparison.”—
