Going to keep this short. What they ware are not "costumes". He was a married man. I stopped reading on page 53 and skimmed the rest of the book. I could care less about what else the woman has to say.

Cheryl  (cherylllr) Wow, thanks for the heads up.
Although, to be fair, in some academic circles we *all* wear 'costumes' ... not in the dressing up or play-acting sense, but in the sense that a three-piece suit is a costume, and so is the all-black outfit of a beatnik or a Goth.
But I totally believe you that this is a bad book, and that my defense of the use of that word is irrelevant. I'll skip it!

Very, good point about the costumes of life.
Costumes to me if dressing up to become something you are not but again you do have a good point.

Here is a review someone else wrote. I agree with it too.
"Aluvrianne rated it did not like it · review of another edition
Author mistakes assimilation for equality."

Yes skip it, she is trying but knows enough but not enough to fully get it. I myself will never fully understand or get it but I am did not write a book or nor am I going to write a book what I do know.

I love your small tangent only to dismiss it at the end. You have no idea how many of those I type and never submit. Haha.

Cheryl  (cherylllr) Well, I'm insatiably curious and like to collect data, Jason. Giving consideration to all available points of view, all known factors, is important to me.

I don't believe that something worth the effort of typing up ought to be dismissed (so long as it's not hurtful or whatever, of course).

Cheryl  (cherylllr) Thank you for your response, SouthWestZippy.
