To First Define - Majority

  • the state or time of being of full legal age. i.e.. A minor child graduates childhood and reaches majority

However we have never to the best of our vast repository of knowledge, both earned and imagined, heard the utterances of one on the cusp of 18 or 21, who claims they can't wait to become a legal "Majority."

The least spoken phrase of all time might be: "Hey bartender, I'm of the Majority"

Signs of propaganda (also known as advertising), purport to sell exclusively to Majors, as minors are not qualified participants.

Majority Good, Minority Bad

In grammarian circles the root of majority, Major, sets the high bar. Majorities are what's happening, where it's at , what ever "it" happens to be.

  • the greater part or number; the number larger than half the total: the majority of the population
  • a number of voters or votes, jurors, or others in agreement, constituting more than half of the total number
  • the amount by which the greater number, as of votes, surpasses the remainder (plurality doesn't count)
  • the party or faction with the majority vote: The Democratic Party is the majority. An Inconvenient falsehood

  • the military rank or office of a major (in charge of the minority)

My Shadow decries comparisons between major and minor as nothing but handy, dandy interchangeable words which act in politics much the same as magnets in science with rotating polls of positive and negative fields that flip when stimulated by outside forces.

Antonym's Matter

When the Majority Is the Minority

The 51.74% majority of the American population although female may not enjoy the consideration of "major" or the majority.

Women, as proclaimed by the "Majority" fit the classification of minority.

The word minority as a variation of "minor tells the rest of the tale.

Minorities Do Not Equality Make

Minors may not be held totally responsible for their own actions. Minorities may never escape the moniker of "minor" regardless of effort, skill, intelligence, aspirations or success.

Ultimately, regardless of heights or depths achieved, the minority will be viewed as:

  • Weak
  • Victim
  • Helpless

My Shadow belongs to the female class. My Shadow neglects to adopt the "minority" label. We are not a child.

 

Until strong women stand up and declare our majority we will continue to be treated as children, legally, morally, spiritually...and the same goes for all those other "minorities" out there who seem to think the assignment of social and legal standing upon the citizenry (for our own good) will help them gain access to the "major" league.

Minority implies we do not possess the capacity to recognize our dire circumstance.

The assumption of abuse upon the minority, for instance, whether is, has or will happen, the minority is expected to need assistance from the majority in making this determination.

Minorities are not expected to apply reasoning capabilities. The intrusive data gathering questions come up in the least expected venues.

My Shadow recently experienced the intrusive query on domestic abuse while scheduling a routine medical exam, sponsored by the new and improved government medical care and tracking program.

Such harbingers gather statistics of abuse, drug use, gun ownership, depression and mental deficiencies to justify new and improved government medical care and tracking programs...

  1. is there domestic abuse in your house

My Shadow Declines the Offer

The inquiry itself demeans. Were My Shadow be of the male persuasion, we ponder, would the questioner be so emboldened to also ask of abuse in the home? My Shadow is fully capable of recognizing the ever changing world of checks and balances, and promises to let you know when and if we need assistance. We'll call you is our new motto, otherwise we request not to be tread upon by the Other.

 

My Shadow encourages minors to realize the classification reinforces victim hood and negates independent autonomy. "Equality" means accepting responsibility for one's own situations not relying upon outside entities to ride in like princes on a white horses to the rescue.

We reject the minority - We are not a child.
