How Gileadian

June 16, 2021

Girl Scout Cookies
.
Really?
.
Still?
.
2021?
.
Evolution?
.
I’m sure everyone has fond memories of
Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Pattis, or
Shortbread Trefoils……etcetera.
.
However in my perception
Names and words
Send messages
.
Subtle or direct
.
(Yes, this post started after seeing
A billboard advertising Girl Scout Cookies)
.
Even though the “Girl” “Scouts”
Are not home baking cookies
To raise funds for their “troops”
.
Rather corporate bakeries are
(Where the real profit goes)
Playing on childhood memories and
Perceived notions of “charity”
.
The underlying societal
Deeply indoctrinated message
Is that girls, females (of-males)
Best learn how to cook
.
So at least, if they are not fertile
When they get older
.
They can become “Martha’s”
To cook and clean
For their commanders
.
Instead of being “Handmaid’s”
(Broodmares for the State)
(- George Carlin)
.
I’m not looking to “cancel” “culture”
.
You can not cancel something
Society ……does not have
.
Culture: 2 A:
.
(enlightenment and excellence of taste acquired by intellectual and aesthetic training)
.
– M-W.com
.
However, I know my observation
Will nary a change make
Tucked away in this obscure blog
.
But it afforded me another opportunity
To think of the ramifications of
How words work even if
Observed at 65 miles per hour
.
A precursor to a dystopian
Nightmare like Gilead
.
“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”
.
– Angelo Devlin
