What is PBH? Part 1

This is part one of a two part series identifying what PBH is (read Kit’s piece for the second part in the series), in reference to the name, the logo, the politics, and the ideas behind our dynamic site. This particular piece is an email that asked about the background to the site and addresses the hesitance people may have towards our site name:

Alec,
I want to feature your blog, but its title and, especially, its logo of a woman being spanked make me hesitant. I’m sure I simply don’t understand their meaning. When you have time and nothing better to do, could you tell me your thinking about them?

Response: No problem. This is a question that I get randomly and probably need to address in the future for people confused when they come to the site, see progressive thoughts, and see our logo/page title (I think this reply may even became it’s own blog entry, if you don’t mind).

Prose Before Hos is derived from a rather banal gender anthem popular among younger people — bros before hos (others include chicks over dicks). This serves as social commentary on our peers (all writers on our page are early 20 something’s) who have an engagement to what we refer to as the yuppie death march: the procession of wasting one’s younger years in dimly lit bars, taking shots with oversexed likeminded individuals, and enraptured in being another body void of personality or independent thought as one slowly capitulates to a future of loveless marriage, minivan driving, and conspicuous consumption. Our engagement on this level is to turn something vapid — a colloquial expression of immaturity — and turn it into a positive, intellectually driven arrangement, hence intelligence, curiosity, and thoughtfulness before simplicity and superficiality, or ‘prose before hos’.

The image is of a woman being hit in the rear with a newspaper by a superhero is a little different. On one level, it’s an exposition of the American 1950’s, a supposed time of economic and social bliss, as the comic is actually a 50’s comic book hero named Flash. On another level, it’s an embodiment of our sophomoric sense of humor and the ultimate juxtaposition of enlightenment (a newspaper) being used to hit a woman on the ass (antiquated).

In a concise, shorter explanation, we also make light of every and anything. This means that everything is fair game; hence nothing is sacred, even if it is sacred to others.
