"Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That's their natural and first weapon." ~ Gloria Steinem

Melodrama, here I come

I have something brewing in my head, but I'm afraid to post it until it's properly fleshed out.

See, this is the kind of thing that could potentially piss EVERYONE off. Yeah, I know, nobody actually reads this blog; what kind of impact could I possibly have? Trust me -- you never know what's going to happen on the internets.

Anyway, it's the kind of thing that could make almost everyone, literally, angry with me. I could offend not only the people who are used to being offended by progressives, but also the progressives themselves. It could be seen as a mockery of everything the people on both sides of every issue have been working towards for years upon years.


This thing I want to post challenges our very identity as a species, that's why. It challenges core assumptions about life, assumptions that everyone on both sides of every issue has in common -- despite all evidence of a complete lack of agreement.

I suppose, however, that if you have read Ishmael, you may not be as averse to the coming suggestions as I assume most people would be.


  1. Ooh, now I am intrigued. I read and enjoyed (and still own) Ishmael. I don't think I'll be offended. It's pretty hard to seriously offend me though. Especially where origins of our species are concerned.
