As the World Turns

Now that Mocktober (the month when we are cruel to those less fortunate than ourselves) is coming to an end, we look forward to Brovember.

Brovember is when we remember - if we have them - our male relatives of roughly similar ages. Ideally brothers, but cousins, uncles, nephews - all are available to be celebrated.

My brother, of course, lives in the tunnels under the Great House, kept well under control by his nurse, Mrs Rochester. I'm not saying I like to see him - or why would I imprison him down there, let's face it - but it's nice to remember him. That is what Brovember is all about, after all.


  1. What if you don't have a brover of other male relative alive to celebrate?

    When is the Sister or female relation (even spouses count as female (if they are female))?

    This celebration of male domination smacks of sexism and the suppression of women, which coming from a woman, seems extraordinary to me. Haven't you seen the Suffragettes film yet?

    Many of your fellow women suffered at the hands of male dominated societies for thousands of years, and they still do in some sectors. Today the news is dominated by the lack of women in top jobs in business. Women are still disadvantaged in many sectors of life, even in the home, being expected to bring home the bacon and cook it as well.

    So, lets have a celebration of female relations if you don't mind (or even if you do).

  2. @UKViewer: you must have missed Sistember.

  3. I missed it because it never happened.

    Mind you I did watch a re-run of Sister Act. Whoopee in Nun's habit - looked lovely.
