    Hello, long-time reader, first time commenter. Thank you for your work. I especially like your poems and musings on aesthetics and beauty.

    “A global movement to eradicate women’s rights” It’s called Islam, Shirley. This reminds me of a thought I had recently about the book “the Handmaid’s Tale” a touchstone for feminists promoting fear of a right wing, Christian extremist bogeyman. The book would have made more sense if the religion in question was Islam. A curous blind spot for women’s rights crusaders in this so-called “conservative , post 9-11 world”

    How do women like this turn feminist? Is it guilt of their success or is it that they have too much time on their hands since they reached the top? Is it that they have been pumped and dumped in relationships? The same goes for Emma Watson…et al…

    @ jg1; women like that are more often than not regularly passed around on the casting couch and do as they are told by their handlers.
