Projection -- (noun) the tendency to ascribe to another person feelings, thoughts, or attitudes present in oneself, or to regard external reality as embodying such feelings, thoughts, etc., in some way. Tell the truth and shame the devil. It's a fact that all women are human. It's a fact that all women are women. Beyond that, there are very few universals when it comes to women. For instance, I cannot say that it's a fact that all women have 2 legs because there are some women who have undergone amputations, who were born without one or both legs, or who were born with extra leg(s). Further, I cannot say that it's a fact that all women were born women because there are transgendered women. Neither can I say that all women will have children because of infertility, sterilization, and life-long virginity. I acknowledge and accept that there are women out in the universe who do not share my physical attributes, personality traits, education, etc., etc., etc. I know this. You know this. But we cant expect everyone to know this. Why do I say all this? Well, it's because it kind of saddens me when adults use the excuse that "everyone does it" to make an argument. I know that the person making the statement is projecting personal flaws and personal habits onto others. I know that projection is a defense mechanism employed to make it seem as though a personal quirk is universal. It's just kind of depressing. I stand before the world and accept that my viewpoints are my own. I accept that my blogs are my own and that all statements are products of my own twisted brainwaves. I also admit to the fact that I have flaws. But, what I won't accept is that my flaws are also yours, readers, nor that yours are mine. Why? Because I'm not a projector. I am not a mirror. I am just another imperfect, unique human being...just like everyone else.
