Mrs Frances Ellen Watkins Harper you are an amazing Poet and I am so grateful to find your poetry on audio, so far my favourite is Double Standard and oh so true it is.
I am glad to read you were born free and you had a very successful career in poetry.

This!! 👏 #truth #doublestandard 😡

JanuarieTimewalker13 True. I just wish everyone (male and female) would cry their anger away.... then pick themselves up and do something g about it. Not take it out on other people, you know? 3y
Hooked_on_books Loved this book! I want to stand on street corners and hand out copies. 3y

🤔👏🏻😆

Laura317 Obviously, Vonnegut wasn't a fan of religion. I find it scary that people think it is perfectly ok to put people who believe a certain way on a reservation. 😱😱😱 If he had said some other group, folks would be all up in arms. 3y
britt_brooke @Laura317 Oh, I agree. I really don't think he was being serious. 3y
OrangeMooseReads 👏 oh Kurt he knew how to get the people talking. 3y

Laura317 The thing that concerns me is that folks will say "oh, so and so is just kidding," when it come to Christians, but if the same is said about other groups, it's taken seriously. In today's world, we really can't jokingly say things like this. #doublestandard 3y
britt_brooke @Laura317 I'm not easily offended by religious criticism. He does not specifically mention Christians in this passage. ? He says "religious fundamentalists." That could be extremists from any religion. 3y
Laura317 @britt_brooke Point taken. 😉I am not offended by religious criticism. Goodness knows I see it all the time in this world. Wonder what group of fundamentalists Vonnegut was referring to, then? 3y
britt_brooke @Laura317 I think he was generalizing. 3y
britt_brooke @Laura317 I appreciate your point and our discussion. 👍🏻 3y

Thekelburrows @Desha I love them all. @quirkyreader Agreed it is a hilariously strange cover. 3y
Verity That cover is nuts. Kinda brilliant in its total not rightness though. I'm listening to Strong Poison on audio for the umpteenth time again at the moment. 3y
Pete I like how she's suspect but this dude is Cosby-ing her drink #doublestandard 3y
Thekelburrows @Pete you are a treasure, sir. 3y
