I've been visiting some of the older threads and found this one particularly interesting. I can see that is over a year old and may not interest anyone else. But, that's the good thing about the internet; you can ignore me and all my posts!
I've done some multi-quotes in one post. Please tell me if this is not done here. Some people may find too it cumbersome.

I agree that the "bull dyke" might not have counted as a female to Michael and therefore his actions would have been, in his eyes, no different than if his victim had been a man.

Is there fanfic on this board?

I agree, But, do you think he could do it premeditatedly (that word passed the spellcheck, so I'm sticking with it.)
I could see him attacking a woman in a rage, if his family were in danger or something like that, but a planned "hit"? (Not that that is what you were suggesting, Marie. I'm just using your post as a starting point for this aspect.

And she scares the bejeebers out of me. If looks could kill, (and I think she might have that superpower).....
I think I'll wear reflective glasses next time I watch her.
(Sorry, threadnap here. I keep saying "she"; how do you pronounce "Fionnula"? Where is the stress?
