Re: Most astonishing thing I've ever read in a magic magazine

Hi, everyone. I feel like this thread is winding down and since I started it I want to thank the participants. I especially want to thank Mr. Karr for his thoughtful response of last evening. You know, the "vagician" line is something I would have expected to overhear in the dealer room of...

Re: Most astonishing thing I've ever read in a magic magazine

Oh please; its a dick joke for goodness sake, which is every bit equal to a vagina joke, and to pretend otherwise is nonsense. If a vagina joke is a cultural bias than so must be a dick joke. Well, is a dick joke equivalent to a vagina joke? What if you're talking about a culture which is dominated...

Re: Most astonishing thing I've ever read in a magic magazine

Mr. Goat, if you really want to be a pedant you need to look further into the question of misogyny than a couple of dictionary definitions. The topic is a large one, and if you're going to discuss whether or not an act or person or community is misogynist, it pays to consider the cultural environmen...

Dustin, without more information I can't tell whether or not a reference to a magic wand is an example of a cultural bias against men. And the Ricky Jay insult, while ugly a...

Re: Most astonishing thing I've ever read in a magic magazine

Well, I started this thread, so I guess I should reply to some of what has been said here. I want readers to understand that I did not bring up this issue because I was shocked or upset by what was said in the article. Actually, it made me feel optimistic. I think it is good that we can talk about t...

Most astonishing thing I've ever read in a magic magazine

The most astonishing thing I've ever read in a magic magazine appears on page 67 of the July issue as part of a "Celebracadabra" conversation between David Regal and Todd Karr: Regal: During all this, you have been creative. You came up with interesting terminology. What's your new word? K...
