    I knew you would miss-understand me, yes Goodkind does go a bit overboard. But my point was, It's not his adult content I dislike (like most Goodkind haters), I dislike his writing style. I like the Mord-Siths because, I like strong, hardcore women (even if they do have their weakness's)

    They're brainwashed torture victims! But they do rock. They have cool personalities, especially Cara.

    I treat his 'adult content' pretty much like I treat Dawkins' religious ranting -- it's something you've got to put up with in an otherwise good read.

    I think that Goodkind's strong female characters stand out so much, though, because in his little world he's set the strength of average females pretty low. All his male characters, especially the bad guys, have a rather low opinion of women, and characters like Zedd and Richard are subtly glorified for their respect for women as if it's special and not just assumed. That does grate on my nerves a bit, but again it's worth putting up with for a good story.

    Of course we are.

    (It's hard to do tone over the internet, so just imagine that mine is smug and superior.)

    Oh, you wait... you sit, contented, in your furrows, and you wait... we will be ready. We will STRIKE! Pink was long ago decreed heresy by the God of Gods!

    You can't disprove this, therefore it's true.
