In a world where we can still be ‘farts’ to our friends, we are told that we need to stop and ‘breathe’ when we fart, a trend which is not confined to the UK.
However, a recent article in the US news magazine Rolling Stone suggests that we may be going further than simply avoiding farts entirely, as we may have evolved into a society that ‘fattens up’ when our friends fart.
A new article in Rolling Stone, by the New Yorker’s writer-in-residence, Ta-Nehisi Coates, claims that the concept of farting has changed from the simple act of fart to becoming an integral part of a society.
The article, titled ‘Farting and Hip Hop’ by Ta-NEHISI COATES, features an interview with rapper Snoop Dogg, who also happens to be the author of this article, as well as a feature article on the hip hop community’s obsession with farts.
It’s a fascinating article, one that I can’t recommend highly enough.
The author, Ta Nehisi Moore, is one of the best writers in the business, and his writing style is well-suited to telling a story about what the people in the world think about farting, as he takes on a number of topics, including the rise of ‘fag culture’ and its prevalence in popular culture.
The article, which is an introduction to a new book, ‘Farts and Hip-Hop’, opens by asking what makes a fart, what makes the people who fart most proud, and the way that hip hop culture is influenced by the word.
“It’s a word we use to describe the act of having an orgasm,” Snoop says.
“A lot of times, people think of it as something they just do.
But the truth is, we fart.”
In this way, Snoop continues, the word has come to be used to describe people who are proud of what they fart, or the fact that they are proud to fart.
In an article in The Huffington Post, co-author of ‘Fools Paradise’, Toni Morrison, said that it was the way in which people use the word that makes the word so important.
“It’s not a joke,” Morrison said.
“We’re talking about a way of being.
And in the case of fart culture, we’re talking a lot about farts that are sexual, which we’re not allowed to say, but it’s also a way that people think about what it means to be a gay person in a culture that is overwhelmingly homophobic.”
Morrison went on to say that the way we talk about farting is actually important to the way our culture and society thinks about fart culture.
“People talk about fart cultures in a way which is almost always patronising,” Morrison told HuffPost.
“But what it actually means is that the act itself is the problem, not the person.”
“A lot [of] people in fag culture think that fart culture is a problem for women,” she continued.
“And they’re right.
But it’s not.
It is a cultural problem for men.”
