I've been surfing on Blogexplosion this morning. Its not something I do much these days, but thats precisely why it was overdue.
It does me good, once in a while, to broaden my horizons, to risk being offended or bored for the chance of finding a fresh new opinion out there, a challenging difference of opinion, even another blog of the sort that I already value over and above the ones to be found by trawling the links on my established friends' sites. A change of routine.
I found this site - eBBC, run by Jeremy Young a.k.a. eeore and the current top post, Dealing with the Stoopid, fascinated me.
I don't mean the information that he is a scriptwriter, nor that he is working on a particular project or anything like that - no, it was the subject and the plot twist he had chosen for his latest work.
Jeremy is writing a script/story (is it a comedy? He doesnt say) about a guilt-ridden transvestite who is caught out by his partner and to cover his shame convinces her that he is a rapist.
Ladies - wouldn't the idea that a man could lie to his partner and hide a huge side of his personality be a big enough betrayal to completely kill the relationship, no matter what the secret was? If you were to find out your husband/partner had a dark secret, what would be worse? The idea that he liked dressing in frocks and silk panties, or the idea that he could drag women off and abuse them (and presumably then steal their clothes)?
This guy may have a handle on mens minds, even the workings of the transvestite dilemma, but really, I hope I get a few comments on this one, because I suspect Jeremy is writing himself into a corner, unless that's the last we see of the girlfriend for the rest of his play.
