I ate at the Original Joe’s in
. I ordered the steak stir fry lunch special and while headed to my seat I looked for something to read while waiting for my meal and it was either the Vancouver Vector or the Portland Mercury. Both were free. Jantzen Beach
The Mercury cover presented a drawing of a young woman shown from behind wearing extremely low-cut jeans and thong underwear—though it was not really “under” much of anything. Her right hand was behind her back and, except for her defiant delicate middle finger, formed a fist. The drawing referenced an article within having to do with, I think, lesbian feminists. Angry ones.
It was going to be brickbats aimed at myself and all other men in the world, so I picked up the Vector and turned to page six to read about political, religious and scientific myths by Pat Miller. You can read the whole thing here: http://www.vancouvervector.com/life/myths-politics-religion-science/
I’ll concentrate on the second myth that there is only one true religion, but first I’d like to correct a term that Miller uses. The article is subtitled “3 TABOOS THAT NEED TO BE CHALLENGED” The author is misusing “taboo” here. Taboo means: prohibited, forbidden, sacred, accursed, unmentionable, unthinkable, banned.
