Weighty matters 
19th-May-2008 12:45 pm
My youngest brother says that Nintendo games are heavier than non-Nintendo ones. I think I may have bought one of the heaviest ones ever.

Working second shift today. I really appreciate that I can run errands on days like this, the Nintendo World release of Wii Fit. Erin is really excited about playing it, and as she's graduating tomorrow, she'll have tons of time for it. (While she's not looking for a job, or learning stuff on her own, or doing housework, &c.)

I've been reading 'Sissy Nation' lately, and while it is a fun read, the author has yet to present a solution out of our American Sissyhood. On the other hand, I'm less than 25 pages into a 165 page book, so that may be a little premature. :-)

To that end, back to the book.

Does the author give a definition of "sissy"?

Indeed. It has to do with a lot of the echo-chamber style of debate and media consumption, calling something "offensive" when you mean to say "I disagree", an unwillingness to entertain opposing points of view, a demand that everything is safe, and fails to live a life of their own out of a combination of their own worry and their obsession with others lives.

Sounds like a good read!
