"Jersus Chronst thank you so much everyone I feel so many emotions right now that I think I am becoming ALMOST a female," she tweeted. [Sic, sic.] You can read about the surgery here, but you can't help anymore—she shut down the PayPal link as soon as her cult following ponied up the money.
@TriciaLockwood, aka New Yorker-published poet Patricia Lockwood, is known best for her "sexts," which aren't what you think. Here's a good one: "Sext: I give u the Heimlich maneuver when u don't even need the Heimlich maneuver. A grape pops out of u that u never even ate." [Sic, sic, sic, sic.]
That cult following I mentioned? I'm not kidding. @linernotesdanny asked, "if he Sees but fails to Observe can I have my dollar back," and @medium_pulp said, "if @tricialockwood RTs this i will donate $20 so her husband's eyes can keep witnessing man's inhumanity to man & gay-ass colors."There's lots, lots more like that from her followers, who all come from the part of the Internet that finds it to be a literary experiment in fighting off the darkness—which might explain the money they threw at one lucky man's eyes.
