What I do for fun

A few weeks ago I was browsing in Left Bank Books and could not help but notice that the store's labeling for its "LGBT" section was out of date. Left Bank had the "G" first and then the "L". So, I explained to one of the clerks that it had been decided since the "L" belongs to two persecuted classes, women and homosexuals, they bear the brunt of societal oppression and, therefore, should lead the acronym. Besides, leading an alliance of the oppressed with a men's group smacks a bit much of patriarchy, the granddaddy of ALL oppression, and just might ipso facto cause cognitive dissonance.

I just LOVE doing this shit.
