march is here

This means it's the end of summer in Australia. There will be fewer varieties of fruit in the shops. :-(

I had a dream last night. I was on the bus on the way to university, but it was an Iranian bus (in Australia haha!), so all the girls had to wear headscarves while they were ON the bus. But for some reason, boys and girls were sitting together, and exchanging adult films on CDs and USB drives. The school bus these days must a very different experience to when I was at school. In my day the rebels would sit at the back of the bus perusing Penthouse Black Label (does that even exist anymore?). Of course, I was a good Christian boy so I never bought anything like that. In the early 1980s, there were some feminists like Catharine MacKinnon and Andrea Dworkin who used to argue that porn was about the subordination of women and should be banned. I don't agree - who gets to decide what "porn" is? Some scientific research has found porn is good for you and lately people make their own adult videos, so how can that be exploitative. Surely a case can be made that they are educational.

I was going to write about my loss last night at the chess club :-( but still too embarrassed.
