a real truce

I'm calling an immediate truce with anyone and any life form I may have offended, fought with or pissed upon during my blogging career.

Unlike some terrorist organizations operating in the Middle East, I know how to keep a truce. I won't go and say nasty things about you two minutes after you've shaken my hand.

I'm just in one of those moods today where I'm realizing that I am mortal, time is fleeting, etc., etc., etc. Get it while it's good.

Karen L Kleinfelder, in The Artist, His Model, Her Image, His Gaze: Picasso's Pursuit of the Model, remarks that Picasso kept at it, over and over, until one day it stopped, as if he had found an answer; an answer that Picasso does not reveal. Kleinfelder felt he had accepted his mortality. What had happened though is that one of his synapses had stopped firing. That is the point at which it is a good idea to stop nagging. Up until then it's okay. Thurber actually liked his difficult, bitchy women.

Crack. It's what's for dinner.

Could you be just a tad more subtle, Ron?

I'm thinking that misogynist asswipes (see Ron's comments on the neighbor post today) don't have truces applied to them.

no! no! no! not fair! i still like you. you haven't offended me yet. you can't just make nice with everyone else today. what if we get into a fight tomorrow? can i get a rain check?

Because basically feminism is the formalization of bitching: something's wrong with the world and man has to change to fix it. How like the home! In particular, feminism is not a transcendent discovery about the relation between the sexes. It is a move within the war between the sexes. I don't know if you'd want a truce in that. No babies.

There is a surrender in Thurber's cartoon series ``The War between Men and Women'' but it just gets another a foot in the door for the women, it seems to me. Handing over of baseball bat and all that.

Thurber's finest cartoon is in ``The Conscious vs. The Unconscious,'' a seated man thoughtfully reaching for the base of a phone on the desk, ``Psychiatrist about to phone his wife.'' Thurber is claimed to be a misogynist too. Vicki Hearne called him a real feminist. Carnage in the fish tank.

Where in the world did you ever get the idea that I'm a feminist? Because I was complaining about someone working on their house at 7am?

Way to draw conlcusions out of nowhere, buddy.

Bitching depends for its effectiveness on the male having some interest in fixing what's wrong; say he wants to get laid again eventually. When the man's supposed to fix things without that interest, you have feminism in its political form. ``You have to stop working because I'm a woman and my mood is important.'' Go to bed earlier, lady.

Methinks Ron has never gotten laid, and most certainly has no hope for the future in that department.

Ooh! Ron be big Mister Man! Ooh, yeth, mathter, whatever you thay, mathter. Buurp.

Dude, where did this guy come from?

Mr. Hardin-

What twisted trailor park are you living in? Where are you getting these sweeping generalizations from? Your view of the sexes seems to have been formed somewhere around the premier of "The Honeymooners".

Was it your dominating mother or a henpecking wife who filled you with this much unreasoning misogyny?

I don't know what men and women are like where you live, but here in the twenty-first century, it's just not like that, anymore. It never was.

You came to the wrong blog.

Go away.

She may have called a truce, but the war rages on...

Ron sure knows his bitching, because that's all he's "added" in his comments. I suppose if I only selectively read a blog for "danger words" that get me out of joint, I'd be as pissy. Fortunately, I don't.
