And before anyone asks, I sure did make that shiro.
"Why do men feel threatened by women?" I asked a male friend of mine. […] "I mean," I said, "men are bigger, most of the time, they can run faster, strangle better, and they have on the average a lot more money and power."
"They’re afraid women will laugh at them," he said. "Undercut their world view."
Then I asked some women students in a quickie poetry seminar I was giving, “Why do women feel threatened by men?”
"They’re afraid of being killed," they said.

Anonymous asked: Are you Muslim?
I was raised in a Greek Orthodox Church. Based on my experience in the church, Christianity didn’t vibe with me. But I respect that the religion allows people a values system and a moral code to guide their lives.
I pretty undecided on religion currently. Maybe someday I’ll have a clue. For me, the three Abrahamic religions share a lot of similarities in their values. It is about finding a community to express those values in. I have yet to find that community.
