I looked up feminism in the Dictionary (Merriam-Webster app). It gave two examples: 1) “the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities”, and 2) “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes”. While at first glance, this seems like a good definition, they class it as a theory or belief, which degrades it to second class status. If the dictionary can’t get it right, how are we to make progress?? (italics are mine) This is, in my opinion, just a hint of how deep the problem is.
I would say, for the most part my life has been low key, but I do have some experiences not everybody has. I graduated from the University of Washington with a Business degree majoring in accounting. I have worked for two of the components of the Dow Industrial Average index. I was briefly a member of the 1% club and misplaced my membership card. I have ridden motorcycles, wrecked a 40’ boat, had a 36’ boat destroyed in a marina fire and spent two weeks in court being sued for $500k (I won). As a self-employed builder, I built over 300 homes and had 20 people working for me. I still have a couple of dragons to slay, this blog being one of them.
