    It's horribly interesting-but there is something fundamentally worrying happening in terms of how people think they are being righteous and heroic by shutting down debate, it serves absolutely no-one. I also have to be completely honest-through teaching students over the last thirteen years, I...

    So sad, a constant throughout our lives.

    The 'Bands I don't Get' thread

    I have realised that this could also mean I could be put in the "celebrity creep" thread, although I am not a "celebrity", of course. And I'm also not a "creep", honestly :).

    I also think he should have just released an album of him reciting any old words, or an album of him laughing. Ooh I would have loved that.

    I love DB so much. His elegant voice just floors me. I miss him from the world. I have just realised this is in the "Bands I don't Get" thread, but hey, at least he is not a "band", so everything is FINE.

    This has been a nourishing exchange. Don't be terrified (do) :)

    I cancelled myself a while back, a pre-emptive move, and now I feel great! I just roam around the place feeling and thinking as I please :)

    I agree with much of this, and perhaps, unsurprisingly, disagree with some aspects! It *could* be argued that women are also a marginalised community. We certainly don't have the issues licked that women face every day. This particular issue that JK Rowling is in the storm of at the moment is...

    I agree with elements of this, and disagree with elements of this. And we should set up a band on that basis :)

    this really made me laugh, and nearly spill my coffee.

    I was being playful about the "arse" thing :) But in all honesty, almost everyone in these "debates" often weigh and wade in feet first. I have no objection to someone like JK-a public figure with a huge platform saying what she wants to say. People have every right to respond to what she is...

    I know exactly what you mean. Also, that MA at St. Pat's has a great reputation. I find myself not fitting neatly into the academic world, and that kind of writing, so I really relate, but I don't fit neatly into any field in a way! I love ideas, and disseminating ideas, and learning more about...

    Really? How did you find it? I love teaching it. I am at UCD. You are so right-it really is a great way of studying adults.

    But then those telling people that they are "an arse" might also have to listen to the reply being "and you are an arse." And then it's just "arses" being handed back to people, left, right, and centre. Maybe in the next few days Twitter will eat itself and we can all go on with our lives. Stop...

    I love The Once and Future King also! As for Dumas, yes, I fold in The Three Musketeers, as a high adventure story, and mingle it with Little Women by Alcott-and try to explore a male-centred text and a female centred-one, and show their common ground, and the way they handle the age-old "coming...
