The Endless Summer of Endless Teaching…

…ends very soon. In mere days, in fact. Thanks for your patience, and don’t delete that RSS feed just yet.

In the meantime, enjoy [FOOTNOTE] the biblical exegesis of Wanda Jackson (“Hard Headed Woman”).

BACK TO POST“enjoy” here ≈ being acutely reminded of how frequently the only “empowerment” available has amounted to “internalizing as self-loathing the sweeping prejudices of the patriarchy, but being really saucy and spunky about it.” h/t to Judy in comments.

  2. So in what sense do you mean “enjoy”, Brooke?

  3. @Dean: 1958, according to the YouTube poster. ikr?

    @Judy: Yes, no matter how long I write on the internet, I’ll always fall again into the trap of thinking that ironic or sarcastic inflection carries, such that in this case the reader hears, “Enjoy (in the sense of being acutely reminded of how frequently the only “empowerment” available has amounted to “internalizing as self-loathing the sweeping prejudices of the patriarchy, but being really saucy and spunky about it.)…” Edit. :^)
