On this last day of 2008.

It's a time of reflectance.

I would say the largest event in my existence is the election of Barack Obama. All things put aside, it's a huge symbolic leap in this country's perception of who's a leader to have a black "face" at the lead of the country. Imagine this picture:

Now with Barack's picture tagged at the end. Seriously, wow.

Now we need 43 more, then maybe we can talk about some degree of equality.

People say I talk about race too much, yet it's the single most salient feature that determines who and what we are in a larger societal sense. If people don't realize that, they have their head in the sand.

Barack's election is a huge step in altering that, no doubt.

2008. A year of changes.

While we're not at the new year yet, this was a year of changes.

Female hypocrisy reared its ugly head in its largest way to me this year. Yet, America showed that it had moved somewhat forward through the election of Barack Obama.

I invite you all to speak of your changes.

One of the best scenes in cinema

And one of the best lines in the best scenes:

"Like all yankee women, all you can do is order in restaurants and spend a man's money"

One of the best comments I've read until date:

"When women stated they were equals of men and wanted to be treated in such a way, you killed chivalry. Chivalry is a code of conduct that explains how men and women used to act toward one another. It involves women doing certain things for men that they have historically done, but would now be considered oppressive if a man asked a woman for them. Would you do those sorts of things for us? Part of chivalry is the part of the helpless maiden. Is that you? Because in every other area of your life it certainly isnt. Its just another area where you want the best of both worlds, the advantages of equality, but without any of the extra work or responsibilities."

Answer this... dear reader(s)

Woman says.... "Being a man is so easy, if I could come back, I'd come back as a man" ... and society's knees buckle and we all reflect on how true it is.

Man says.... "Being a woman is so easy" and it's sexist, misogynistic, bitter, angry, etc...

Given this framework, who really has it easier, if the whole world thinks they have it unequivocally harder?

Now. don't read this the wrong way

Ok, I want to talk a little bit about balance.


Let's look at this story.

Now, of course, this is absolutely abhorrent, and HORRIBLE. that a defenseless woman was treated this way.

But I do want to look at this from another angle. look at her face, and looks. at least the people who knew her can say she was able to live a good life based on her looks, and was able to enjoy many things.

How many women have sufferd her fate without having her looks to gain things from?

I dont condone the actions against her, whoever did it should be caught, and strung up from a cactus. But as always. I offer something else to think about.
