Over this little hiatus

It feels like forever since I've held a barbell. Soon the weight ( ;) ) shall be over. In the mean time, later today or tomorrow I will post a twitter conversation between myself and one Australian man about feminism.
Have a great day, all!

Who we oppose

“The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness … can be trained to do most things” – Jilly Cooper, SCUM (Society For Cutting Up Men)
“I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig” – Andrea Dworkin
“Kill your fathers” – Robin Morgan
“Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation, and destroy the male sex” – Valerie Solanas, SCUM Manifesto
“It is no accident that in the ancient matriarchies men were castrated, sacrificially slaughtered, and excluded from public forms of power; nor is it an accident that some female supremacists now believe men to be a distinct and inferior species or race. Wherever power is accessible or bodily integrity honored on the basis of biological attribute, systematized cruelty permeates the society and murder and mutilation contaminate it. We will not be different” – Andrea Dworkin
“Why have any men at all? … The proportion of men must be reduced to and maintained at approximately ten percent of the human race” – Sally Miller Gearhart
“If life is to survive on this planet, there must be a decontamination of the Earth.  I think this will be accompanied by an evolutionary process that will result in a drastic reduction of the population of males” – Mary Daly

Training Notes
Wonderful day. I got an issue sorted out today, got my wrist wraps and singlet in the mail (thanks again to J Byrd) and the gym got a platform. I was the first to do a clean and jerk on it, and now I get to train in my singlet on saturday. The gym is closed on friday and sunday (average people holidays) and HERC410 will be at home so I will be doing a non-programmed session of form work, deadlift volume, overhead work, and assistance. Oh, yes, and shrugs. Many many shrugs.
