Colin bh on the hot seat

Dear Editor,

I have been forwarded two correspondences (one from a male and one from a female) which declare that they found one of my articles last week, “Bake It Again” (to be specific), to be distasteful. I am of course concerned. I do not write with intent to offend anyone and I am especially unhappy when I hear of any female aggrieved by my opinions, or anything I did, for that matter.

In respect of the article, Bake It Again, I would love to respond, but I really don’t know – to what? Was my entire article distasteful? Was half of it distasteful? Was it a line or two?

Until such time that I am apprised of exactly what the problem is, allow me to say this: I have my failures in this world, but I like to think that the women who know or have met me consider me to be extremely respectful, and very caring.

Sincerely,
Colin B. Hyde (Colin bh)

(Ed. NOTE: Just for the record, Colin bh’s article was edited by both a male and a female, of many years standing at Amandala. Those offended by his article will, of course, be allowed a forum to respond.

It must also be noted that Colin’s writings have been known to be provocative, and are often satirical. Needless to say, his columns express his opinions, and not necessarily those of Amandala.)
