I would have voted for McCarthy in a heartbeat if I had been a few years older.
Babylon would have held their grand and great festival for their Goddess Ishtar today. While biblical writers claim their God destroyed this great city because of it’s sin, I find them truly remarkable, colorful, interesting, and no less wonderful than every other Ancient civilization.
Ishtar seems to be a Goddess many a woman can relate to especially since her life was never dull. However, Ishtar represents a freedom of sexuality that many of our sisters should take notice too. She seemed to be one who knew exactly what she wanted, perusing lovers, catching them, and then tossing them away without a blink of an eye. (Go Ishtar!) Now i am not saying women should chew men up and spit them out, but they should be able to go where their hearts lead them….
Our society today would have had a heart attack I’m sure if any of its woman were to go through men the way Ishtar did. For those women who do…we salute you! Fly through those Lovers (safely) until you find the one you want! No shame in that!
