OFB- Out for business- This term refers to the practive of homos being on the active hunt for sex. This is no time to be chatting with friends or faghags, “it’s time to work, boys”.Often one can observe the OFB homo’s look of focus and quiet determination, of having settled oneself into the cockpit, the pilot, wolfish in his stare, trains the aircraft to the take-off position and hurtling toward the point of no return. OFB is often marked by certain time of evening, in many places this is between 2100 and 2400 hours, a vitual moon rises over homoland and it’s time to put childish things aside (including your own children, “off to bed, brats!”) and start the more serious business of looking for cock. This is an ancient tradition in our tribe. Socrates did it in the Agora and it’s never stopped. With it are associated codes, gestures and looks. The so called “hanky code” is one of them. (Only in airheaded California would queens need to invent something so unsubtle, but there you have it.) A better example of the OFB game’s regulations is “The Ten Second Rule” of New York. You pass by a Godling on the sidewalk, as you proceed on your way you count to ten (second and paces). If he is an enculturated homo and feels the same way about you he is doing the same. At the count of ten the queens turn and smile. If there is a mutual urge, they move in for the kill and to a happy end-ing. It can be observed by the raptorour look in a homo’s eye when a Hot Reason walks into the room. It is wrong, silly and even dangerous to interrupt a fag when he is “OFB”. This state can also be observed on hook-up sites and apps, bath houses, cruising areas, back rooms, tea rooms and sex clubs. Hen parties (bridal showers for sluts) are not welcome in OFB spaces. Womyn, we love you, but there is a time and a place. Turn, turn, turning! It is the height of rudeness to butt into this hunt. The term our tribe ascibes to this excrable behavior is “cock blocking”. This crime can mean sending an offending queen or fag hag to Coventry permenently. Some people are habitual cock blockers. These are the worst people imaginable. They would not say hello to you if you were in an elevator, but if you happen to be chatting up a Stimulating Number they are suddenly your best friend. You know the type, “Oh hay, gurl! How you been?” All the time staring at your hottie Apollo whilst slowly edging between you and your mark.Why have you never heard of OFB? Well, you are going to the wrong places with the wrong people. That’s not nice, you say? Well, we say, if you have nothing nice to say, come over and sit next to me! At the same time, while the worship of cock is one of our main pursuits, we cannot forget that we are Epicureans, seeking pleasures not just of the sensual sort, but also intellectual and emotional rewards. OFB must be balanced with the demands of friendship, work and love. Now, go get ‘em, lads! HOMO
A Woman’s Work is Never Done
A series of photographic works titled ‘A Woman’s Work is Never Done’ Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, which is traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of its opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ‘ancillary’ jobs, such as cleaning, caring and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’.
The technique, I recall first applying to my hand under a table during a home economics class in school. I was totally amazed to find that I could pass a needle under the top layers of skin without any pain, only a mild discomfort. As with many childhood whims it passed and I hadn’t thought any more about it until quite recently when I decided to apply the process to my hand to make it appear calloused and work worn like that of a manual labourer. Some viewers consider the piece to be a feminist protest, for me it’s about human value. After all, there are many men employed in caring, catering, cleaning etc… all jobs traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’. Such work is invisible in the larger society, with ‘A woman’s work’ I aim to represent it. (artist statement)

In 1967, Kathrine Switzerwas the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.

Quitting is a sign of a flexible job market. 2.4 million people quit last November—here’s how it breaks down by industry.
I’m so happy that I quit in November and could be included in this data set.
"People who actually work in the city, and I’m talking about normal people, like teachers and policeman and firemen and city workers and shop-owners—they can’t live here.
They can’t live here because this place has been overrun by crazy money that’s being tossed around like sacks of bananas to people who are ‘solving’ shit that doesn’t solve any real problem for any real human being except coming up with shit like $150 smoke detectors for rich people. And it’s turned what used to be a fucking magnificent city into a bedroom community for the Peninsula.”
