Curse of the Denizen: 11

“Now I understand, when I died I was on Tao’s balcony, but when I was sent back to earth and came back to life I was on Feng’s. That accounts for my sense of confusion and loss of memory. But now my act of communist witchcraft must be completed, so that the ghosts of Cripplegate’s dead possess the bodies of The Denizen’s ghost home investors, and this cursed building and it occupants are finally destroyed!”

Stephanie decided she would share her secret with the nation, but how far and how much? Would she utter the dreaded words, ‘I am the Bomber.’ Her parents --- her ‘fake’ parents --- didn’t watch the show of course and Stephanie rather relished the prospect of them being informed second hand by social media. They would say she had cracked up, pressure of work. But Stephanie had never felt more sane . . . seven more days until the next live show. Her heart contracted into a tiny ball when she saw where it was to be recorded --- The Denizen.

The first shamans, or healer priests, in nature societies were women. The first male shamans imitated women by taking on their roles and wearing female clothing. Wherever patriarchy has overthrown matriarchy, even in nature societies, the previous religious power of women is feared as something diabolical; and it was only ever overthrown through the cross-dressing of those who pretended they were man enough to be a woman but weren’t! Once these new emperors were sufficiently emboldened to throw away their lipstick and skirts, the priestess was transformed into the figure of the witch. There is, of course, a link between the original she-male cross-dressing shamans and homosexuality. The gay male shaman and chicks with dicks who didn't want to get down with male power were turned into heretics.
