“Yeah–Right!”

October 19, 2012 § 2 Comments

Is my gaze on a woman tyrannical? Knowing what I mean by it, I shouldn’t have to ask the question, but I ask because I am not, apparently, allowed to judge. Am I looking upon her with appreciation or aggression? Perception trumps intent. What she sees is what I intend. I’d better not look. I’d better not even want to look. Who knows into what depths my lascivious intentions can be followed. Perception is the tyranny here in the Blame Age. My gaze injects her with fear. My gait, my stance–my very being!–how menacing they must be! How dare I! What am I? Some kind of monster? I’m sorry for both of us. I’ll retire to my manacles in the garret and allow you the run of the castle. Which one of us will be lonelier?

  • Crazy times. We’re driving ourselves – and others – round the twist. People being offended are dictating social mores and public policy. We all bend, terrified, before the God of Offence.
    In Britain there are 50 million paedophiles. We’ve all been pre-judged and found possibly guilty. In the US and the UK, men are beasts and women are victims. It’s all going to hell in a handcart. Sad.
