Life The Demystification of What?

Jen’s post reminded me of the brilliant Fleetwood Mac-meets-Joy Division g.f. I had in college.
At this ancient time in the history of the world, a very trendy word on college campuses was “demystification.”
All the punk rock feminist grrls talked about demystifying this and that. Of course, this and that invariably meant the patriarchy. You know, we had to expose the lie of the power structure.
However, my Fleetwood Mac-meets-Joy Division girlfriend thought this tactic ceded too much power to the power structure.
We all had radio shows. Hers was called: The Demystification of What?
I’ve always liked that.
