Fight Fire With Sapphire!
~ Friday, April 04, 2003
Oh joy, fellow travellers, joy! The appalling phallocentric speciesism that pervades Western "democracy" is finally being subverted -- subverted with extreme prejudice (and I mean that in a very tolerant way).
This daring act is no ordinary act of e(wo)mancipation. The circus is a paradigm in which white males call all the shots, crack all the whips, ride all the elephants. So by escaping from it with an entourage of big cats (and a reconstructed testosteroid) our fearless female lion "tamer" is symbolically liberating both women and nature from the suffocating grip of the pallid patriarchal peenie-wavers. This is a wonderful affirmation of the eco-feminist argument that women are actually a lot like animals (and I don't mean that in a sexist way) and can only achieve liberation when they join forces with them.
On hearing this news, my feisty feminist feline Jocelyn (seen here incandescent with rage over the ousting of fellow "power pussy" Natasha Stott Despoja) was simply overjoyed!
So she and I danced, fellow travellers. We danced a dance of empowerment, because we knew that other feminist felines all over the world would now finally be able to meow: "Free at last. Free at last! Thank God Almighty we are free at last!" (And when I say "God Almighty" I don't mean that in a Christian way.)
