Not much time to write in the past week .....

I haven't had much writing time this week, so I have fallen behind here, but I've been doing some thinking about the argument between the "a scarf is always a symbol of hate and terrorism" folks and the "wearing a scarf as anything other than a pro-Palestinian symbol is cultural appropriation" folks, and I'm not sure which ones annoy me more. They both come from the same kind of simplistic, us-versus-them, either-with-us-or-against-us mindset, so I suppose that it is no surprise that I want to defy both. So I ordered two different so-called "Israeli keffiyehs." I'll be sure to let my audience of no one know when they arrive.
