I do not like being called “Miss”!
I tell myself that this is petty!
And it is.
But as I haven’t an hope in hell of stopping humans from making all life on planet Earth extinct,
I figure that I may as well be petty.
I am often addressed as “Miss”
To my age group this is an insult.
You are labelling me an “old maid”.
I was involved in women’s lib in the 70’s because women had no rights and no status.
A women’s status came from her husband.
A woman couldn’t buy an house and landlords would not rent to separated women.
A woman couldn’t keep a child unless she were married.
Men who stayed single were admired.
The term bachelor was a complement.
Men were expected to be promiscuous:
and women were expected to be virgins:
I never understood how this worked.
If a woman complained of rape she was labelled a whore and told she must have deserved it.
A “joke” at the time = “There is no such thing as rape. A woman can run faster with her dress up than a man with his pants down.”
Even though I realize where the “miss” stigma came from and should not react. I do.
An analogy that comes to mind is micro mini’s which were in fashion in the 60’s
and are no longer in fashion.
I certainly wouldn’t wear a micro mini now and not just because I am fat with various veins but
because it is no longer the fashion.
( Not sure this is an appropriate analogy? Guess a better one would be that it is cultural programming)
Having “bought out” two husbands I have no intention of ever marrying again.
The last time some one proposed to me was 2007
I said “I cannot think of anything worse.”
Obviously my brain and mouth weren’t connected : Or I would not have refused so tactlessly.
Surprise! Surprise! He has never spoken to me since.
And be kind to non human life forms
the continued existence of life on this planet depends on it

It is only a short story:
I know that I no longer look like this photo: I had someone who hadn’t seen me for more than a decade say “You used to be beautiful” Couldn’t decide if it was an insult or a compliment 😛
Since first offering email readings I have had excellent feedback.
They are $60 Australian. (concessions available)
They are inexpensive because I do not believe in the Protestant Ethic of turning everything into a money-making venture:
We don’t share with one another and don’t even consider we should share with other lifeforms: this attitude has contributed to the extinction of many species: trees, plants, insects, reptiles, sea life, animals etc
My motivation is to help people.
I still do” freebies” but sadly in my old age I sometimes haven’t enough money for food or to pay bills.
I am still able to see and communicate with people that have passed over on an email reading.
Please send a recent photo of yourself
I am able to accept overseas clients.
You may use debit cards, credit cards or PayPal

To purchase one just email me asking for same.
I saw an ad for John Edward coming here in November which said “Is someone waiting to talk to you?”
Thought I may plagiarise that line except I “see” more than hear.
For those of you that care about other lifeforms you may like this sci fi short story
