Sisters, brothers, and nontraditionally-gendered siblings:
I was just meditating and it occured to me that I've unintentionally contributed to the patriarchal structures of oppression by referring to the Ground of Being as "Mother" all of these years. To be a Mother one has to have children, and by using a child-bearing metaphor for the Ultimate I've privileged heterosexual constructions of the family and implied that womyn exist primarily to be BABY-MAKING MACHINES. ...
You understand my quandary. It's way too much "on target."
But note the context. They juxtaposed the link to a site working to legalize the smoking of one plant (pot) with a link to a site working to ban the smoking of another plant (tobacco) thus showing the hypocracy of the 'movement'.
I vote for it being very well done satire.
Oh, I missed that. Thanks. Good call, but on the other hand it WAS obvious enough I shouldn't have needed it pointed out.
Oh Man! Did I miss it... I just realized they also juxtaposed PETA and Pro-Choice America! (You have no right to kill animals for food; how dare you question my right to kill babies!)
And the final clincher that it's very high-minded satire: the signature, "fellow womyn." It's not like some gynonazis I've aren't that stupid, but simply that no-one called her on it.
I figured you had just looked at the links and hadn't forced yourself to read all of the text. Of course, I didn't pick up on the PETA and Pro Choice pairing.
This is almost as good as the Birdman guns deal (guaranteed for at least one shot) from a couple of years ago.
You're right!! Very good...
It comes from having a strong Presbyterian teaching on Total Depravity.
