Love laws

Monday, January 17, 2005

I was reflecting on the arbitrary nature of the status quo when I recalled Indian author Arundhati Roy's "Love Laws": The laws that lay down who should be loved, and how. And How much.

Even though she was referring to the caste system in India, I feel the oppression of the "Love Laws" every day. I feel that a long time ago somebody, somewhere arbitrarily defined how people should act. And it sucks. Fuck you, "Love Laws".

P.S. Roy's Booker-Prize winning novel, "The God of small things", is indeed one of the most beautiful things I've ever read. Highly recommended.
