Quote:Yes its a nice play on words but we know exactly why Aaron chose them so don't try to hide behind Hildegarde being 'boisterous' and 'outspoken'.
Again, what politics does 'anti-Patriarchy' represent? That you have a problem with this sentiment coming from a fictional character is really bizarre.
Quote:Thus its sexual politics.
Quote:I'll admit I'm blowing off some steam but that issue was ridiculous even for Aaron.
Fine. You're blowing off steam. I'll leave it at that.
Quote:That's how she is behaving:
It's a pretty ugly term, easily on par with certain racial slurs I'm not going to reference.
Quote:I can see why none of this would even register with you; but do you likewise see the flip-side and why this run has so many detractors?
I can see why a Roy Moore supporter would have a problem with this run for political reasons. But he lost in Alabama. It's not a mainstream opinion that resistance to a patriarchal society is somehow evil or wrong. Women should be in positions of power and leadership. Not surprising that this sentiment would come from a warrior-goddess. We're not dealing with damsels.
If that's not what you mean, then I'm misunderstanding.
From the greatest fantasy writer of all IMHO!
“I cordially dislike allegory in all its manifestations, and always have done so since I grew old and wary enough to detect its presence. I much prefer history – true or feigned– with its varied applicability to the thought and experience of readers. I think that many confuse applicability with allegory, but the one resides in the freedom of the reader, and the other in the purposed domination of the author.” - JRRT
