I thought Kajsa could help me with this, as an expert in ‘Gender Studies’, but apparently postmodernists don’t bother with these biological things. My question is this. Bearing in mind that gender differences – and ambiguities – aren’t implanted immediately after conception, but only a few months in, which is why men have nipples (in case things go the other way in utero): do we men have scrunched up uteruses (uteri?) inside us, and women minuscule scrotums (scrota?) inside them?
Not an entirely serious question, though I’d welcome any suggestions. But it illustrates how my mind has been liberated since arriving in Sweden a week ago, so that it’s no longer obsessed with Brexit and Boris and all the rest of the awful stuff that has been buzzing around in it while I’ve been imprisoned (‘shielded’) in the UK, but can now focus on trivialities. Freedom is the ability think about silly things.
More serious observations later, I hope. I still of course get news from ‘Home’. It seems just as crazy, but no longer quite so personal. My eternal thanks to Sweden for granting me another and – at present – more congenial ‘Home’.
