My stars, there's a radical feminist among us. Quick, debunk her! Call her "stupid," "inane," "ignorant" - anything to shut her up, discredit her, and smooth the ruffled, peacock feathers of mankind, his thoroughbred terror of freedom, liberation, women's superior intelligence, his ultimate inadequacy in the face of 5,000 years of foolish leadership, wastefulness, violence and war. Oh yes, and his oppression of women based on gender, no less. Ah you men, you make me laugh as much as your logic wearies me.
For the record, I did not grow up in this country. I have lived most of my life outside of it, and it is most refreshing that "the majority of the world isn't like the USA." Otherwise, we might find 280 million other world citizens following in the ridiculous footsteps of a minimind.
Mr. House, I will gladly pick up my ticket to Kabul (though your sincerity I doubt), only I think the USA has done the enormous service of bombing all the airports in the country in the name of capitalism, er democracy. And of course the unnamed destruction of hospitals, boys schools and neighborhoods. So, could you make the ticket for Nicaragua instead? I understand Bush intends to (re)newly target the Sandinistas in his asinine counter-terrorism movement. I could leave just after the New Year from Seattle, say Jan. 4? Do put your money where your mouth is, Mr. House! My bags are packed! And Juneau will be safe once again from the "mindless pap" and "idiotic tripe" of radical feminism.
Only, you fool yourself, brother. Radical feminism is a most marvelous and surely eventual reality for this country. It is only a matter of time before women and First Nation's peoples exercise their divine potential to redirect our world from ruin, and from the idiotic course you set and support. It is only a matter of time before patriarchal fraudulence is exposed for what it is. It will begin with a strike: The withdrawal of womenpower and indianpower from your pathetic system of disparity, misinformation, racism, poverty, rampant illness and violence. Radical feminism will institute for every citizen the right to property, happiness, freedom, longevity and personal fulfillment, such as patriarchy has been unable to fulfill for 5,000 years. Ha! Nurse your egos in the meantime! Educate yourselves, Mr. House and Mr. Gillespie and all you other gravekeepers of tradition. I'm done with the lot of you.
