Alas, laid on the grass how small, how insignificant this thought of mine looked; the sort of fish that a good fisherman puts back into the water so that it may grow fatter and be one day worth cooking and eating.

For later:
The “Other” is easy to love (or hate) because they are reduced to 2D cardboard figures. Relating to a human is hard. Creating a fantasy in your mind is easy, and has the added advantage of being entirely in your control. That’s probably why we insist on Othering everyone we can: the more Others, the more control, and the less humans we have to contend with to gain that control.

Also, easier to “love”: see Daisy Buchanan, the original MPDG. Gatsby “loves” his flat, 2D, Othered, fantasy image of Daisy.
It’s not Love, it’s selfishness/self interest/(also thoughts abt fetishism go here).

So I’m actually really bitter.

“Yet, I didn’t understand that she was intentionally disguising her feelings with sarcasm; that was usually the last resort of people who are timid and chaste of heart, whose souls have been coarsely and impudently invaded; and who, until the last moment, refuse to yield out of pride and are afraid to express their own feelings to you.”― Fyodor Dostoevsky, Notes from Underground

"Millenials have steered the country to a place where diplomats tweet, gay marriage is turning mainstream, and running a blog can be more financially secure than a company gig. If we’ve done all that before 35, get ready."
