The Rectal Visionary
The rectal visionary is the title of someone who voices unsubstantiated opinions based on a view from their own metaphorical ass. We know where this rhetorician’s head is located even though the speaker does not. Some listeners and/or readers may detect the odor of male bovine feces when exposed to these myopic and colon-like observations but this is psychosomatic. The brain is thinking, “This is bullshit,” causing olfactory memory cell activation. Images of standing ankle deep in bullshit is often associated with such recollections and depending on the strength of the speaker’s convictions, the listener may picture themselves eyebrow deep.
Rectal visionaries are often assholes. In his book, Assholes, Aaron James theorizes the definition of an asshole as this:
A person counts as an asshole when, and only when, he systematically allows himself to enjoy special advantages in interpersonal relations out of an entrenched sense of entitlement that immunizes him against the complaints of other people. (Kindle Locations 80-82)
The sense of entitlement is the defining trait of an asshole but whether or not this person is a rectal visionary cannot be ascertained until the asshole opens his or her mouth.
It seems that analogous comparisons of human behavior to anatomical parts can branch out into a variety of classes and categories. A person can be an asshole, have their head up their own ass, and still see the world through the narrow view of their own ass. This is the epitome of a rectal visionary.
