Cinderella and the Chickenhawk

Cinderella and the Chickenhawk

Dear Sir,

Janet Holmes (Salient, August 2) finds that fillies, kittens, birds, sluts and ladies feel very unequal in the company of studs, tigers, hawks, gigilos and gentlemen. I guess she's right. Woman puts her man on a pedestal, expects him to be strong, virile, witty and wise, the provider, initiator and leader. The poor guy trembles inwardly, knows that he's not the last of the great lovers, and doesn't want to go the way of Macbeth. What can he do in a bind like this? Kick her in the head. An act of kindness, otherwise known as the Cinderella syndrome.

Yours sincerely

Thorold May.
