The News in Haiku Needs a Vacation

The news in Haiku is a few days early because I’m going on vacation to a place without phone or Internet. Coco will have her updates to the news on Friday.

I think we should just give up on money altogether. No one has any, anyway.

My food groups are cheese, bacon, and hot tea. I like studying cities and playing with my cat, Buffy.

    1. It makes me wonder if part of that has to do with the politics of gender and who, according to kyriarchy, has more to lose by being inclusive. Of course there is backlash to inclusiveness, which Girl Scouts has seen on more than one occasion. But it strikes me that images of masculinity as superior to images of femininity only have power as long as femininity is kept at arms length. Since men sleeping with men shakes up the power structure, and gay men are often described in feminine ways, perhaps it is perceived as more threatening to the order of things, at least in comparison to homosexuality and Girl Scouts.

      This is entirely speculation, though, so I could be completely wrong.
