Priceless!!!! J.


holy shit why are we like this. Jory, have you read Phyllis Chesler's book, Woman's Inhumanity to Woman? A bit of a rant but in her first chapter she offers some great advice - women need to learn how to disagree, to fight even, AND THEN MOVE ON.
I like your line that women cannot cope if you stand up for yourself, that they are like vampires in the sun - I wish I could believe it though, I've been standing up for myself for 44 years and there still be vampires about in these parts...
Chesler has some good points to make about the tendency women have to overidealise relationships, so that it is "dreadful, nearly the end of the world when things are not the way I want them to be" ( apologies to the fathers of rational therapy).
Looking forward to the next instalment.


Hi Jory:

Great blog, exceptional writing. Too bad I didn't receive your email sooner - I just returned from San Francisco. Would have enjoyed meeting you in person. Should add that I too am working on my first book -- working title: "Unintentionally Wicked Women. Why Women Don't Help Women Win." Wouldn't it be a hoot if we could write together? Adding you to our blogroll....but in a unique place - under women helping women organizations!
