tao can also be spelled dao but most

people prefer the letter t over the letter
d because t looks more alive like a person
jumping with arms stretched out saying
lets all group hug whereas d looks more
like a potato sprouting an ugly root + tao
is not a potato but then it could be a potato
because a potato is beyond language + tao
is beyond language as well much like x which
is not only a letter but also a mathematical
variable indicating two separate things should be
combined into one which is very like tao + yet
we cant use x + call it xao because xao sounds
nothing like tao + so the t will simply have to do

 

 


yin is the feminine founding element
which isnt to say that yin promotes
the buying of daughters or the
hollywood dragon lady archetype
in which an asian woman is defined
by her aggressive and domineering
behaviour [see: lucy lius character
in kill bill] + in fact a truer example of yin
is to be found in the deepest parts
of pornhub.com where under a video
titled busty bigdick asian gives self
pleasure the top comment reads
i wish i had that all the way inside me
right the way into my stomach

yang is the masculine founding element
which isnt to say that yang promotes
patriarchs selling daughters or the
hollywood yellowface archetype
in which a white male actor plays
a stereotypical asian man [see: mickey
rooneys character in breakfast at tiffanys]
+ in fact a truer example of yang
is to be found in the deepest parts
of pornhub.com where under a video
titled busty bigdick asian gives self
pleasure the top comment reads
i wish i had that all the way inside me
right the way into my stomach
