“Sources have reported that the entities formerly known as women are not actually members of the human species, but profound metaphysical metaphors who have transcended corporeal form, defying mortal understanding.
Many others are reported to be tornadoes, storms, hurricanes, galaxies, the blood flowing through your veins, and even nature itself, all of these, womanologist Richards reminds us, are symbolic metaphors, and that these “women” do not have personalities, lives, thoughts, or experiences, except for standing in for larger concepts.
These discoveries are in line with predictions made by many white male poets, who did not see women as people, but as glorified objects to be held on pedestals and idolized.
“Women are metaphors, not human beings,” said one such white male poet. “And they should be treated as such. Not as equals, not as fellow humans to interact with and know, but as unknowable abstracts to be worshiped and revered.”
