Scorpio for this week:
I foresee a time when women’s earnings will match men’s and when women will compose half of every governmental body instead of a measly ten percent. I predict an awakening that will help men understand that the global conspiracy to cripple and demean female power damages them as much as it does women. Until the coming of that happy day, I recommend that you celebrate International Women’s Day every day–and especially during the next three weeks. Your health, wealth, sex appeal, and wisdom will flourish in direct proportion to your efforts to give female intelligence more room to be expressed.
Ummmmmm. OK. Now, I just don’t get this one. I’m not a feminist in the sense that I have to celebrate the fact that I’m an innie and not an outie. I’m human, just happen to be of the female persuasion. In fact, I never understood these whole celebration things. Where’s the International Men’s Day? I don’t really think there’s any conspiracy (outside of a few religions and societies) to quash the female intelligence or whatnot. In fact, I’d like to see some group manage it, as the only way to actually do that would be to kill off all the women in said group. I think the problem in regards to women being in governmental bodies, is the fact that they spend too much time on the “mothering” side, and not so much time as the “lioness protecting her cubs” side. There seems to be an absolute vacuum in that regards, in relation to women in politics. The only one I see actually standing up to the process is Hilary, but she’s got too many rotten apples in the orchard to do anything with her fruit. Up there, they want to help and coddle, they aren’t willing to stand up and be the Bitch and get the things done that need to be done. And I don’t think there are enough of those who will, to go around. Hell, want to see a microcosm of it? Show up to my fight training on any given day, the instructors will go after the women to see if the lion will come out. If she doesn’t, she goes back to the fitness classes, if she does, she gets put on the team track. As my Professore likes to say, “In training, I want to see bunnies running around. But the minute you step out to represent your team in competition, that bunny better be a lion.”
