Leave now if you don't like people tearing off on occasionally
self-righteous #%*#&%* sessions.
Right. Thanks for stopping by.
This rant is for Sept 5th, 2001 and was on a mailing list but
It doesn't matter to me how inner or other the worlds of other
It matters to me if I can find a way to get *everyone's* worlds
accepted by society as valid.
I consider them *all* to exist and put them together in a large
box that is marked, 'Make These Accepted As Real -- NOW' with red
marker. Sorry if I tred on toes on the way through. Or if we do.
Etc. Esp since we don't have an Other world and barely pay attention
to an Inner at most, we don't have a rat's right (or less than one)
to do anything other than to try and stand up for everyone in general.
I'm determined to find a way that everyone on this list and off
it can feel safe and proud for their worlds and be able to talk
about them and have them recieved by society. And I'm pissy at myself
for not being able to find it yet. And I want to apologize for not
being able to think of something yet that might work.
When I get rabid on the lists, it's because I see so many people
who I want to see have the freedom to be wherever they want Inside
and Outside and Otherwhere without having to be ashamed or to hide
it. I see mockery in the media and want to wipe the snide smiles
of those who'd like to use *any* excuse to call plurals insane and
will use other worlds as more fodder for their 'proofs'. And I want
to find some way to phrase it that will be pleasant enough to society
that they'll swallow it and only afterwards realize that they've
allowed something through that otherwise they'd shove off as delusional,
while meanwhile we're all out dancing on the docks.
When we Courts get silly on the lists, that's to try and remind
ourselves to keep from taking things too seriously, to think and
explore, to do things to see if they're possible. It's to remind
ourselves that there are other ways that we might not have seen,
to help us see where others might be walking about from. We're deliberately
silly with our own internal/etc space because otherwise I think
we'd go batty. Or battier. And because there *can* be nontraditional
other/etc worlds, which include pirate raids and musicals, can't
There will be a way. Dammit, there will be a way. Dammit, someone
will find it.
Unless everyone would rather not be explained or defended at all,
in which case I can put down the crusading spear and go out for
a stiff drink.
