At the Black Gate

One thing I’ve never understood about those who stand by the Woman Warrior trope is their insistence that the complete absence of the type throughout the course of human history is the result of the same cultural prejudice happening to appear in every historical culture, however disparate. I’ll consider taking the matter seriously when the related cultural distinction between male and female sports is finally eliminated.

Anyhow, one thing I rather like about Black Gate is that it’s one of the few places where more or less controversial subjects can be discussed in a perfectly civilized manner.
