Girls Have the Power to Change the World

In the world there are many sexes.  Here we will deal with just one.  Perhaps later we will address the others.

For a very long time girls have been the ones who raised US.  My mother was a very nice girl.  Like many girls she had her problems; as do boys.  But BOYS have had advantages.  They are bigger, stronger, notice I did not say smarter.

Girls are what makes the world go round, and thank goodness.  For all their good qualities boys like to settle things with their fists or guns.  Some have called this “testosterone poisoning” because it makes boys like to fight.  They triumph in the infirm glory of the positive hour.

Most wars have been fought by boys.  Girls prefer more subtle methods, like poison from a ring or the Lysistrata cure.  Girls are more graceful when dropping poison into your wine or persuading one to fix the sink.  Girls are less into fighting minor battles.  They have a longer view – tied into the strategic survival of their children.  Sometimes they get it wrong, but they are not into cleaving your skull in two except on rare occasions.

My mother, as I have said was a girl.  When she became my mother, and with all the acumen of an eight-year old, I had her fight battles with oppressive teachers from whom I had no other defense.  She was as aggressive as a she wolf even if she may have guessed that I was wrong.

Girls are loyal, girls can make stone soup, girls have power.  And wisdom.  Girls rock.  Now watch the video.

About carlos

I'm a curious person, of reasonable intellect, "on the beach" (retired) and enjoying my interest in anthropology, language, civil rights, and a few other areas. I've been a hippie/student/aerospace tech writer in the '60s, a witness to the Portuguese revolution in the ‘70s, a defense test engineer and witness to the Guatemalan genocide in the '80s, and a network engineer for an ISP in the '90s. Now I’m a student and commentator until my time is up. I've spent time under the spell of the Mesoamerican pyramids and the sweet sound of the Portuguese language. I've lived in Europe, traveled in Brazil, Central America, Iceland, New Zealand, and other places. My preferred mode of travel is with a backpack and I eat (almost) anything local. Somehow, many of the countries I have been to have had civil unrest (for which I was not responsible). I'm open to correspond with anyone who might share my liberal, humanist interests. I live in San Buenaventura, California.
