Ani DiFranco.  She certainly is one of my favorite artists.  I was fortunate enough to go see her in concert last year.  She is really awesome live.

I must confess, that I think she is really attractive.  One of my friends told me, however, that she is a lesbian.  Either that or she is bi-sexual.  I guess that limits my chances of dating her.  It's just as well, I guess.  I don't think she would last with someone who lives "the lifestyle of a West Side Player."  West Side of Manhattan that is.

The reason I started listening to Ani DiFranco was because this girl I use to have a crush on in New Paltz loved her.  In fact, she was infatuated with her.  So I thought that if I started listening to Ani DiFranco, she would think I am really cool.  Unforntuately the feelings were never reciprocated. 

One night, while we were alone in her dorm room, I was going to express the feelings that I have been harboring for her all those months.  That is when she informed me that she thought all heterosexual sex is sexist by nature.  You see (Sorry if I am too graphic), the male always inserts his member into the female and the female is always the receptor.  That inherently makes heterosexual sex sexist.  So she said she planned to never have heterosexual sex.  I realized that limited my chances with her greatly.  I never expressed my feelings to her, and she wound up dating someone named Mary Jo.

My last girlfriend once told me that one of my big problems is that I can't admit when I am wrong and that nothing can change my mind.  I have to disagree, however.  It is really easy to change my mind, if you have a good argument, and this girl from New Paltz had a brilliant argument.  She made me believe that all heterosexual sex is sexist.

I shared this information with a few friends of mine the other day over dinner.  One of them knew that Dr.Dre was one of my favorite artists to quote on Nicky C's Hip Hop Quote of the Day. So he asked, "What do you think Dr. Dre would say to all heterosexual sex being sexist?"  At the time I was speechless.  I didn't know what he would say.  I was pretty sure Dr.Dre wouldn't care, but I wasn't sure what he would say about heterosexual sex being sexist.  Now, after a little research, I would probably have to refer my friend to a song on the album The Chronic, entitled "Bit%hes Ain't Sh*t but Hoes and Tricks."

I have to maintain the position, however, that all heterosexual sex is sexist by nature.  I still like to think of myself, however, as a strong feminist who would never act in a sexist way.  Does that mean I should let my romantic lif lie dormant?  I don't think so.  Maybe I am not being consistent with what I believe and with what my actions (or future actions) are, but Emerson once wrote "Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds."
