Males flock to the standards of these monsters of history, so males cannot be trusted with any influence in politics. The only usefulness of males to their government is their willingness to die for them.

"Hermaphrodite" am I? Hiding behind my skirts I admit I gave the Ecphorizer
readers plenty of rope to hang themselves with, but wasn't there too
No, I've never fought and died for my country, but (by definition) neither have my readers. (My only uncle on my mother's side (an M.D. like his father and both his father's brothers) did
die for his country, on Thanksgiving Day, 1944. His father was too mean to be a civilian doctor, so he spent all his career being nasty to patients (and his superiors) in the army and in the Veterans Administration. At age 70 he mellowed enough to become nice to men, but all
his life he was nice to women).
I am a trained killer, however; I put in my two years during Viet Nam. No, I didn't go to Nam, I didn't want to, and would have hated it. But that's because there is no better way to turn a hot-blooded, idealistic man like me from a hawk to a dove than to put him in the army. Except for the fun of shooting guns and taking them apart, army life is for wimps and idiots. (Even so, my first and last names are identical with my master sergeant uncle who was even skinnier (alcoholism, smoking) and meaner than I am. But he was in ordnance, working always with weapons and ammunition. His avocation was as a pornography writer).
The only two years I was a liberal were the one before I got out of the army and the one afterward. Then I reverted to my temperamental contrariness too tough to need reinforcement by taking cheap shots at people I wanted to believe were weaker and wimpier than I was.
If any of you nincompoops out there knew better than to take MoM literally, but didn't know what I did mean, all you had to do was ask. Not one person wrote. I think that establishes pretty well that Lottie was no lady; all of you were too intimidated to cozy up to this
