So why did I just take up 3,000 words?

It seemed to me Xanith should be discussed in context. It's easy to
look at someone at a distance and see an exotic, incomprehensible
monster, rather than another human being, as complex and interwoven
with society and family as any one of us.

That wasn't a full out academic paper, by any means, but I tried to do
something that be comprehendible and not be too superficial. I
thought I'd spare everyone the endless scientific notations and
referencing, as well as tediously correct anthrojargon.

Apologies for the ? thing going between word doc and the forum. I
don't know how to get around that. I wanted to use word doc because
that was too much material to organize and slap down in one post.
