Love your posts, Becky. You bring some fantastic scenarios. Some of them are so clever that I can't help smirking. Like your pen picture of the potential rapist and the potential victim with the gun. Nine minutes, nine months or your life?
Hi Again Becky, Am I one of those you are pissed at? :) I really don't want to be, I believe the same things as you, I get angry at the same things as you, I've certainly seen more than my share of the effects of stereotyping.
I do believe though that it is important to be able to laugh at ones own deepest convictions - it's part of always questioning and evaluating things. I feel it is important never to allow oneself to slip into dogma, an unquestioning view that one has the absolute truth. Dogma is the preserve of our opponents after all *grin*
Anyway, I'd much rather be friends than opponents - we have far more in common than not :)
Hi Becky, I just posted a comment on "convert the women" thread under your "here we go again.." topic. If you would please read it and let me know what you think. I actually agree with you wholeheartedly in principal. but also choose to see humour in things when I can .... I know it's a dark world we live in, which is all the more reason to laugh at times :)
