Through a virtual wormhole

      No Comments on Through a virtual wormhole

Today I had a shocking surprise.


I fell through a virtual wormhole and found myself in the World That Time (and Commonsense) Forgot.


Yep. It was crazy. There I was on the Internet, searching for an event in the past that could, if changed, result in a drastic alteration to the present.


It was research for a book, so don’t get all worried. I don’t have a time machine that will let me swoop through history, making changes to the timeline that will either make the world wonderful, or destroy it.
Not yet, anyway.

Anyway, one thing led to another, and before I knew it I’d been sucked into that wormhole I mentioned earlier, and discovered that the residents of the WTT(C)F  had absolutely no respect for women. Worse than that, they seemed to think women should be treated more as property than people.


According to them all women are weak, inferior creatures with fluff instead of brains.
Which I find odd, since I know just as many strong, intelligent women as men. 


Now, don’t get me wrong. This is not the first time I’ve run into someone with a bad case of sexism. But the misogyny I witnessed in the WTT(C)F was horrifying and rampant!


I scrambled out of that wormhole as quick as I could. Of course now I’ll have to clear my cache and my history to make sure no remnant of the WTT(C)F survives anywhere on my computer. 


It makes me shiver in disgust, just to think about it.


Luckily, I’ll get over it pretty quickly. I’m tough.


I have a long history of doing well academically, so I’ve never believed that bull that men are intellectually superior to women. 


I wonder when the human race will stop stereotyping, and just judge each individual …well, individually?


A hundred years?
Two?

What do you think?
