The Power of Sexuality

I recall, when I was about eight, that there was something about my family member, a few years older than me and the library.  She was intellectually precocious and was borrowing books from the Library that shocked the librarian, perhaps it was the works of D.H. Lawrence.  She would have been about twelve. My parents were amused and proud of their oh -so- intelligent daughter.   I was never considered to be the the smart daughter.  I did read D.H. Lawrence, when I was about seventeen.  I read Thomas Hardy.  I don't know if I got more than the fact that a woman could be ruined because of her sexuality.  My intellect was not specifically verbal or mathematic, but a well rounded ability in both.  I got a 90 % on my English Regents, a 96% on my Biology Regents and a 100 % on my Algebra Regents Exam.

Miss smarty pants older sibling was well versed in the power of sexuality.....No indoctrination into religion except of course, pet names.  Jonah the Siamese cat, Barabbas  the captive crow.  Jenny/donkey the dog. Lentil soup for dinner on Sundays, in honor of Esau who bargained away his inheritance and blessing.  She got what she needed to be the little Nazi to oppress her captive sister the Jew.  The Power of Sexuality, or so she thought.  She, or they, the Federal government with the help of the Fourth Reich.
