“Chinaski having sex with women without their consent” as in raping them. Rape. Yeah. That is only one reason I feel no need to read Bukowski and also that I believe Bukowski not only feeds into the disfuctionality in men this author claims attracted her, but serves to perpetuate and excuse it. It reiforces disfunction that I have never found attractive. It allows men who do such things to enter the club.

There are many realities I can find on the page. I do not have to consume them all. Baim doesn’t want to read more. I also have no plan to read any more at all beyond what I have already read. I am not missing a thing.
