Scono Sciuto: The short answer is no. I can see how others may view it that way. I am Catholic and I have been my entire life. However, I have not been to Church in many years, a large part of the reason I no longer attend is the covering up of the molestation of young boys, the most innocent of all. Not only the priest committing these horrible crimes, but the fact that it has been alleged that those in the upper echelons of the church knowing about it and may have been involved in the trying to keep it quiet.
So if people would like to view that part of the story as Catholic bashing, they can, but I don’t.
Crystal: Do you believe that Satin the character is mentally disturbed, or mental ill?
Scono Sciuto: That is something that the reader will have to determine. I don’t want to give much away here, but remember what she went through, and all that follows is a reaction. Is it over the top? Again, that is for the reader to decide.
Simone: Back to the topic of feminism. You have eluded to that feminist have it wrong, and that in the novel you expand upon that topic. Can you give more examples?
Scono Sciuto: As was stated in the novel, feminist have always played, and continue to play for parity. And that goal has led to repeated setbacks. Barbara Walters is an example, she was an anchor of the evening news, but once she got
there everyone thought she won, just by getting there, not by being better than everyone else. Therefore, another setback; then it happened again, Katie Couric earned her way into the anchor chair of the CBS evening news —- and again, everyone was simply happy because she was there, but she didn’t excel. Yes she is financially succeeding, but she lost the opportunity to win the battle. Thankfully, Diane Sawyer knows how to win, and she is out there doing a superb job, making feminist proud by her success.
Crystal: Why are the women all athletic, muscular and fit?
Scono Sciuto: Because the women in the novel are the pinnacle of not only feminism, but of femininity. Women are always taught that they should be soft and curvy, to be sexy. Think of those words, they convey weakness. The women of Satin The New Savior are strong, independent, able to take care of themselves, but never lose the essence of what makes them women. There fitness and muscularity do not take away, it enhances their femininity by the outward appearance of strength and dominance.
Simone: Satin marries another woman, is Satin pro-gay marriage?
Scono Sciuto: Satin does not require government approval to do what she desires. Many should really take that way to heart. Everyone is so focused on a stamp of approval from some petty bureaucrat or elected official they miss the point that love doesn’t require legality, it only requires acknowledgement by those involved.
Crystal: Is Scono Sciuto, your real name?
Scono Sciuto: That’s unknown.
See what drove Satin to embrace her destiny. Her methods are out there, but many joined her mission. Find out why.
Is Satin a hero?
Is Satin an anti-hero?
Or, is Satin an outright villain?
