“They Haven’t Given Women the Best Opportunity to Succeed” is currently scheduled to be a one-shot short story. But it could evolve into a series. One of the unique things about it is that while it is a story first, it also serves as a vehicle for something else I’ve long had in mind: fiction as a means of intelligence forecasting.

Nothing in the story is meant to forecast exactly how things will turn out in real life. However, elements in the plot are meant to show potential things that could happen. One might even say it is a worst-case scenario. Or maybe it isn’t a worst-case scenario—just a really bad one.

Women in combat. Women are “badass.” Tiny women can beat up large men in movies. Even young girls can now beat up large men in movies. Society has spoken. It wants women to be just like men and it wants to sweep away all the old rules regarding the male-female relationship. Very well. “They Haven’t Given Women the Best Opportunity to Succeed” agrees with society that there is no turning back, and it shows the possible consequences of this decision to destroy the differences between the sexes.

No solid start date yet for this story. But as is with most of the stories I’m currently writing, I plan to publish it serially here at Liberate Liberty and simultaneously at Liberty Island Magazine.

And as always, if you’d like to see original, commissioned artwork for it (instead of my creations), you can help towards that end by purchasing my published books and by contributing to me for my published work at Liberty Island Magazine through the PayPal link that is posted there.

No guarantees of original artwork with any purchases of my books or contributions to me, but that is the only way of there being any possibility of original artwork. Furthermore, it supports my writing, including all the free stories I have already published and that I am about to publish.
