Being a degenerate is okay these days

"Fuck adults." There was a thought Jae had had numerous times throughout his life, especially since he'd started working. Some variation of it went through his head almost every day that he had to deal with white moms with A-line haircuts looking overly concerned and asking if he was sure that it was sanitary for him to have "those things in your face" while he handled the snacks.

Sadly, "Bitch, do you think I scoop the popcorn with my mouth?" was not an acceptable way to respond to a customer, so he just had to plaster on his fake smile and say "Yes ma'am, I'm sure". "Why would I put something unsanitary in my face?" was often his next thought, but by that time the moms had usually moved on.

Jae was not looking forward to when their theater got its hands on the Minions movie, was what he was saying.

"Even if you could stop it, or like, go back, what would you even do?" He thought about that sometimes, and usually found himself at a loss for an answer. A better question was, what could you even do? Study harder? Try more clubs, go to more parties, kiss more girls? In the end, you still ended up where you were now, and where he and Jane were was Kingman, Arizona, working in a dinky movie theater and biding their time until they had to go out into the "real world".

"I just want a break. I guess... I guess that's why I want to go somewhere else. So I can slow down after all this." It was a lot to get out, all of a sudden, but he actually did feel a little better saying it out loud.
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
