<p><strong>Dont you just hate losing things?</strong> Whether its your car keys, that 25% off coupon for Urban Outfitters, or your applications data, theres nothing worse than not being able to <strong>keep up with what</strong> <strong>you need</strong>... when you need it.

CHAPTER EIGHT: Two people in a room: ethnographers, unruly subjects, and the pleasures of addiction

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p> <i>Alexine Fleck</i> </p><p>In the provocatively titled anthology, <i>Crack Pipe as Pimp</i>, various ethnographers describe the sex-for-crack phenomenon surfacing in the more general crack-using population. James Inciardi (1993) opens his taxonomy of crack-using locales and risk behaviours, entitled “Kingrats, Chicken Heads, Slow Necks, Freaks, and Blood Suckers”, with a particularly disturbing scene. I impose it on you to illustrate an argument I hope to make in this article:</p><p>Upon entering a room in the rear of the crack house (what I later learned was called a freak room), I observed what appeared to be the gang rape of an unconscious child. Emaciated, seemingly comatose, and likely no older than 14 years of age, she was lying spread-eagled on a filthy mattress while four men in succession had vaginal intercourse with her. After they had finished and left the room, however, it became readily clear that it had not been forcible rape at all. She opened her eyes and looked about to see if anyone was waiting. When she realized that our purpose there was not for sex, she wiped her groin with a ragged beach towel, covered herself with half of a tattered sheet affecting a somewhat peculiar sense of modesty, and rolled over in an attempt to sleep.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/243347-lacan-and-addiction-an-anthology">See more</a>

Chapter Seven: Psychopathology, personality disorders, and schizophrenia

Slice ePub May 23, 2014
<p>“‘Ere, Gov. Come and have a look at this.” The garage manager, absentmindedly, looks up through the office window, still preoccupied with the invoices he is reading.</p><p>“‘Ere!” Gordon insists.</p><p>With a sigh, the manager heaves himself out of his chair to look at yet another engine that Gordon has finished servicing. He gets frustrated with Gordon’s constant need for approval of his work, and has told him so a couple of times. But Gordon reacted so angrily that he threatened to leave there and then and go to work for his competitor around the corner. Gordon may be obnoxious at times, but he is a damned good worker, and does a brilliant job on the engines. The customers often ask for him, too, because, even though he is brusque and sometimes rude to them, he gets to the heart of the problem quickly, and no one has ever brought a car back that Gordon had serviced saying the problem had not been fixed. And that is more than can be said for his fellow mechanics.</p><p>The garage owner peered at the engine of a classic car, which purred contentedly as Gordon meticulously cleaned his spanners.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/220143-infant-losses-adult-searches-a-neural-and-developmental-perspective-on-psychopathology-and-sexual-offending">See more</a>
