Good day, womyn and gentlemyn of the Cafe. It is good to see dialogue on the topic as to why very few womyn are posting at the Café. The answer lies somewhere between how it is that womyn's voices get co-opted, and the myopia caused by a vague reference point, from which one begins, i.e. primogeniture. Men need to endeavor to understand how womyn operate. The Cafe needs to learn to understand the participation of women, as though there had never been primogeniture. Patriarchs need to abandon patriarchy if they expect women to participate.

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
