colonize, as in take something over and put your own meaning onto it.
i.e seeing somebody's death as having a meaning for your life despite
not knowing them.
using it to say you hate things and so on.
i didn't tell anybody how to feel, i merely questioned reading bigger
meanings into those feelings, or projecting personal feelings about
something else into those feelings, hence my use of the word colonize.
your fundamental inability to understand the difference between
colonize and canonise is typical of the blather you post.
my reference to diana was simply because i saw then people projecting
their own feelings and anxieties and so on into somebody else in much
the same way as i believed freya was doing.
i changed the list of the strand out of respect for HH's friends.
That isn't academic, just polite.
i actually did acknowledge in a post here that my first email was
perhaps too harsh in terminology to freya, beyond that i don't think
i have anything to apologise for.
other references in my post were linked to previous comments in the
i find your use of "patriarchal" to be pointless - along with other
'insults' you have thrown around here such as "white", "bloodless"
and "police man" - i am not sure why i am such, presumably for
complaining on another strand here about the uncritical use of
psychoanalysis in some 70s feminist film theory? or because i voice
opinions contrary to your own?
too bad you don't actually read or think about what people post, it
would save everybody a lot of time.
