After too many hours working on “AlmaMia Cienfuegos,” my eyes were beginning to play tricks on me. You know, that moment during the rereading process when words start to merge and the reader begins to wonder if Rorschach is running secret tests. Yep, I was seeing nothing but inkblots, so I had to walk away from AlmaMia for a while.
To refresh my brain housing group, I turned into a post I’ve been working on for Timeless Ritual’s 13 Goddesses in 13 Weeks project, which will be over in three weeks or so. I fell behind on my goddesses’ postings, and decided that instead of catching up I would just bring my creatresses together and discuss the current state of the uterus on the last day of the project.
This is not the actual post, but I can tell you that my mind is having a blast…
I was wondering what one of my favorite goddesses would say, if she received a prayer from a woman complaining about not having much political power over her uterus. I won’t tell you which goddess I think might say this, but the reaction my mind attributed to the deity made me roar.
You see, instead of answering the prayer right away, the goddess in question contacted one of her godly friends and said this: “I thought it prudent to ask if you, or perhaps another goddess with a taste for the dark arts, have given certain males of the human species a uterus. Did you? Let me know soon, for if this is someone’s idea of a sick joke, I promise my crows will be consuming that someone’s most cherished bits.”
I’m sure you can tell which goddess I think might say those words. But this is not the purpose of this post. I just wanted to ask, what do you think your favorite goddess or god would say about the current state of health insurance, religion and female contraception?
I borrowed this pissed off crow from Life is a Prayer . com
Don’t touch him; I’m pretty sure it would chomp your finger off.
