My name is Little Victor and I have become quite a
fan of Cover-to-Cover and a keen student of Jennifer's perspective.
Although not as well-read/educated as some of your other listeners,
I somehow completely understand your very accurate historical and
contemporary analysis of our male-governed civilization and all the
In your programs you often have delicate moments of exhausted
confusion when reaching to find the logic of the male ego/superego.
Being one myself (who is also in tune with the greater feminine)
I would like to perhaps offer a bit of personal insight on my gender
which might be helpful in your brilliant analysis.
First of all, we're not all the same. There are...Superheros amongst
us; men who embrace an archaic power source that drives them to war/to compete.
It engages a status/ranking ideology. This supernatural power provides
a full-circle awareness, a comfortable perfection and a waring/sexist/racist, almost
scripted perspective onto the world. They tend to be leaders and champions
whose work is the Paternal eternal. I can only hope that women know the
difference to better understand our gender's divide.
On an even more surreal final note, please reference R.E.M's "I am superman"
lyrics (that Michael Stipe...enlightened). And the good news: after
all this time, the power still doesn't work on Mondays. "Blue Monday", "I don't like Mondays",
"Stormy Monday"... Ie, Monday night football (a day to challenge fairly).
Hope this isn't too deep and abstract. Hope you can use it. And thanks for your time.
