Men are Stupid
Excerpt from the book “On the Meaning of Adam Lambert”
27 January 2010
I was talking with my male friend who has read some of what I have written here and he liked it, so while I haven’t given him the URL – I keep him posted on our topics and activities.
Tonight I told him about the discussions we have about spirituality, religion, philosophy, expressions of feelings and other broader and higher level topics, not to mention the fantasies and vivid descriptions – fact or fiction. We call on any exotic resource we need to express ourselves.
He said “men are so stupid”. “Why?” I asked – “because you don’t have such interesting discussions?”
“Right – it’s business, sports and maybe politics.” I think he’s right and that’s why we spend our hours here, with such thoughtful and smart women who have original thoughts, who have lived long enough to have figured out, experienced and seen – a lot, but with room to grow and boy have we grown since June!
Inspired by the strangest catalyst who quite literally “blew our minds”, we have set about to to fill those reservoirs with music, imagery and thought – new, different, challenging ideas which brought us together and further fill-out our already plump lives with beautiful, creative, honest and very smart women friends, with whom we share some of our most profound feelings or radical ideas.
We laugh, we cry, we hug, we kiss and we dance with joy. I don’t see men having this type of deep and fulfilling discussion to arouse such passions with each other. If they do, it’s when we aren’t around.
The discussion is so gracious – our collective words have become a work of art, to commemorate this time when we have come together in spirit to explore a mutual conundrum – “what is it about Adam Lambert?”
More like a pleasure cruise than a dangerous expedition – we keep coming back to the buffet for more and more Adam and more of each other, with chocolate sauce, whipped cream and a cherry on top – oh, and champagne. And beautiful scenery all along.
Wonder what they think all we women, spending all this time on line are chit-chatting about – recipes, children, cleaning ladies, paper or plastic, the price of milk (?), the economy – them??? We can’t possibly still be swooning like pre-teens over some singer who caught our fancy, could we?
