This story

The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson was written and told as a gentle reminder of true love, sacrifice and hope. The imagery captivated my mind and touched my emotions. A romance “novel” of time past yet exists somewhere today.

I love this narration!

I like the little mermaid, and I am like the little mermaid. The patriarchy is the system that dictates that women's only path to socioeconomic status and security is through the gauntlet of blows delivered by men's secret societies.

In nature, human females have intrinsic socioeconomic status while the status of individual human males rises and falls according primarily to women's public opinions. The feminine form follows the function of a politician, while the masculine form follows the function of an executive officer. The feminine are gifted strategic planners, while the masculine are gifted tactical planners. The feminine are territorial, which is good for geographically bounded political problem solving. The masculine are gregarious and team oriented, which is good for goal oriented project planning and execution.

Wonderful

It's lovely. The narrator is good, easy to understand and soothing voice that matches the passion and sadness of the story
