I called my husband on the cell phone yesterday while out during the day and asked what he wanted to do during the evening, as we had no plans. He said that he already took care of that, that he had went to the video store and took out the new Pride and Prejudice that had just come out on video that I had been longing to see. Well, it was very sweet of my husband, but it was an extremely poor, pathetic adaptation, and I can't believe that it had been nominated for Academy Awards. The one before this one, I really loved, the one before that was great also, and the book best of all, but this film was simply awful. And, this is truth, and not politics. My husband asked me today what I wanted to see the next time he was at the video store, and I couldn't make up my mind between Good Night and Good Luck and that mountain film, Broback Mountain, I think it's called. Anyone have any great suggestion, keeping in mind that I like thoughtful(but not violent) and that I like romantic(when well done), and comedy only when extremely well done.Regards,KateIn a message dated 4/9/2006 5:55:13 P.M.

How wonderfully 17th C politically correct you are. How comfortable to choose what is nice and ignore all the reasons others are offended. How soothingly normal to remain the norm and to be in the category of the those whose politics are truth and not politics.
How politic to be so political in so ancient a way.
As for das Ewigweibliche, for god's sake, read deBeauvoir (no need to read anything too new) and notice some changes in that politically correct definition of all non-male humanity. Nothing has been more politically correct in all of history as the political definition of women as not the "inclusive" and men as the norm of humanity.
I am astonished that you care so much about all other groups who have been historically excluded, and now you champion militant masculinism and resort to such absurd ostensible reasons, or rather personal assertions.
