Governator not a good enough actor to conceal his sick glee … The Goddess Nemesis says, “I’ll be back”

May 29, 2009

Check out his facial expression for yourself.  You can see the Governator’s  barely concealed sick glee at doing something that makes no financial sense whatsoever.  His plan, however,  does support man’s longest war against womankind by putting at risk  women’s autonomous “public” park connections (free of dependence on the wealth of a husband or male “benefactor”) to  Mother Nature.  When economies falter and folks lose homes and yards of their own, free public parks would be one necessary last bastion of  hope for nature-and-nurture connection.  If you cared about people, then upholding the affordable domain of “public” parks would be antidote to the man-made socially sadistic urban blight and traffic gridlock that has become most of today’s California  —

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s budget cuts could mean the closing of up to 220 state parks, among them the home of the world’s tallest tree and other attractions that draw millions of visitors. …

“This is a worst-case scenario,” said Roy Sterns, a spokesman at the state parks department. “If we can do less than this, we will try. But under the present proposal, this is it.” …

The proposal has angered conservationists and some Democrats in the Legislature, who say California’s parks are treasured spots that help the state and local economy.

“State parks draw tourism to California,” State Parks Foundation president Elizabeth Goldstein said. “This proposal makes the budget situation worse.”

The foundation estimates the state gets a $2.35 return for every dollar it spends on parks….”

More on the longest war’s man-made hell for women

May 28, 2009

The new movie,  Drag Me to Hell, all over MovieFone’s home page in oversized advertisement for the weekend — it’s big enough culturally to warrant extra treatment as part of the resistance to misogyny (see also posts below).  Here’s another online image from the film:

This film betokens the dilemma for women in this tokenized, pornified, can’t-you-take-a-joke time of man-made hypocrisy keeping men installed as the normative type of human, the male human, designed for Man-God worship by females everywhere.

This from the Pasadena Star-News, so near Hollywood, in an article identifying Spiderman-famed Sam Raimi’s discussion of the young woman vs. the old woman of his new movie [my notes in brackets]:   “She [the young woman] commits the sin [after all, doesn’t the Man-God mythos of Judeo-Christianity charge another young woman with the sin of being the downfall of man] – the sin of greed [being that she is a modern young woman needing a job in order to eat —  given the reign of man-made agribusinesses like Monsanto and the few remaining personal garden plots — and as a citizen in the man-made money economy, thus she has a job in the housing finance industry run by top men for a male-designed international banking institution now in partnership with the top-male US government and top-men governmental lenders in places like China].  And [continues Sam Raimi] I wanted the audience to sin with her and make that choice to throw the old woman out of her house [followed by an old woman in violent images to movie audiences as a hellish she-demon].”

Staff writer Rob Lowman in Pasadena provides no feminist analysis, without saying why, but it’s a post-modernist, post-feminist, post-structuralist time, haven’t you heard?

Know how to tell a man is lying?  His lips are moving.   It’s an old AA joke (change alcoholic for man), but consider the source, a “spiritual” group where origination-of-the-12-steps credit goes to married men who didn’t give credit to the long-suffering wives without whom they would have died under bridges in drunk funks and never started their “God as you understand Him” program of sobriety which only works to keep a small percentage of folks sober in any event.   Today with what’s also at the movies, I’m not seeing spiritual programs based on Him as God  being part of anybody’s solution for authentic freedom.

Might as well offend as many as possible while I’m on a rant, and religion is always a way to do that.    The level of offense taken about religion usually signifies the depth of the mental programming.  God, Schmod, whatever may Infinitely Exist to help us is not made in man’s image, nor man in “His.”  And certainly not Sam Raimi.

The Counter-Feminist Fidel-what’s-his-name and Kyle Payne: Could they both be on the same side?

May 28, 2009

http://www.freewebs.com/birmingham-schools-kick-racism-out/influentialpeople.htm

An unsmiling Harriet Tubman said she would have freed more slaves (she freed a thousand as leader of the  Underground Railroad) if they had known they were slaves.  Harriet Tubman:  female genius.  She also seemingly channeled infinite Spirit through a woman-of-color’s spin on a Jesus who would set Her free — as in seeking Guidance about which way to escape when out in the woods with slaves she guided to freedom on nights of the dark moon (my interpretation from biographies).

Freedom for womankind has become muddled today as most women remain media-mentally if not physically enslaved by pro-male global culture, although good things have been written by many and good works also done by those  who identify as feminists.   Some of us care about our daughters more than we care about  male privilege.  Some of us don’t want our daughters to be mind-warped and body-twisted by patriarchy’s cultural enslavement of the female caste/class/race/genderization  (aka enslavement to subservience by any name), it seems to come down to a division based on wombs and phalluses even when men of color have achieved some social parity.  At best it breaks down into smiling visages (gals) and smokin’ dominance (guys),  in the longest war played out in the theater of the mind.  (Not to minimize war’s terrors of the body against women and children, or male violence including the trauma of rape.)

It occurs to me (having been pointed in another blog’s comments to Kyle Payne, and reading his pre-sex-offender papers — good stuff, and true, actually, about porn as woman-hating imagery and self-policing social compliance for women built into the patriarchal compact) — that Kyle Payne might not be what he appears to be.  Just a thought in the nature of social criticism.  Might Kyle Payne have been a cover for a woman-hater strategically placed ultimately to divide and conquer the freedom-fighting energies of women seeking liberation?  Is there an off-shore account in his name for his divisive work on behalf of the patriarchy?  Maybe I’ve seen too many movies?

Now that Kyle Payne’s been  resoundingly discredited in the criminal (not really justice) system, his prior pro-woman words, even the true ones, are being discredited.  A double whammy scored, perhaps, by the longest war.

Think spy networks, double and triple agents, and maybe that’s how the disinformation tactics of misogyny work (or maybe I should be writing James Bond screenplays).  Then again, in vast respect for my daughter’s intellect, maybe the collective mind power of womankind — if women were mentally freed — is so prodigious in its unmanipulated state that men of the war have to resort to extreme, underhanded measures to keep winning.  Men win when women do not see that lying man keeps waging underlying war against the freedom of womankind.

Imagine if any feminist dared to say, without substantiation, anything so direct against male domination as Fidel-what’s-his-name says against woman in his self-proclamation as a  “counter-feminist.”   His blog banner typifies the male woman-hating reversal of truth.  Fidel-what’s-his-name of course does not provide any images of cultural synthesis sufficient to back up his claims, because they are lies.   Shaming, sadistic lies. 

When comics re-write SpiderWoman of antiquity, not that she’ll become a blockbuster movie, there’s woman-hating by one Spidey woman against another

May 28, 2009

No sisterhood pictured  in the isolation of each woman from meaningful women-centered bonds with other women — and in the catfight among the SpiderWomen, the winner is — the one most like the SpiderMan

SpiderMan, not SpiderWoman, serves as movie-icon heroic role model to little boys everywhere wearing a SpiderMan T-shirt, carrying a Spider-man lunchbox, dressing up like SpiderMan for Halloween (or harvest festival at the local church or community center).  His sister in princess garb is still being taught to wait for the illusory prince to come.

Man’s longest war:  It’s everywhere.   It changes form to combat every vestige of meaningful feminism among women and pro-feminsim among men tired of the war.

It grabs for the children’s minds first.  It’s big business.  Moms and other well-intentioned women who cannot face that this is a war keep playing along [online sample below].

Spiderman 2

Just a modern way woman-hating and woman-fearing — and the corollary of man-revering — perpetuates itself from generation to generation.

Here is the Sam Raimi-false image of the old woman who drags the young woman to the  hell only men could make:

And the intended audience?  As reported by Mark Brown in Cannes for the guardian.co.uk, “Drag Me to Hell … has plenty of gore and shocks but not so much that teenagers can’t watch it …”

Reversals upon lies in the longest war’s battle for the mind of womankind

May 28, 2009

Once upon a time womankind had her own Spiderwoman (mythic spinner of life, originator of world fire); then 7,000 years of the longest war netted us reversal-mythic movies about Spiderman (man’s reversal of original women’s story in order to favor male heroes).  Now coming to the multi-plex this weekend,   Sam Raimi, the director of moviedom’s Spiderman, is the auteur linked to the horror movie in which a woman is (in an updating of the mythic Judeo-Christian reversal to favor male heroes) sent to hell (imagery of flames scorching like the actual Catholic-sponsored burnings of old by men torturing and murdering women called witches, many of them old women who in fact had wit and were wise) at the hands of — could it be the movie shows men as agents of the horror and torture?

Noooooo, in this movie we won’t see  men depicted as evil agents as actually true for the  historical witch burnings by men against women but we will see a movie’s powerful  fabrication of an old woman as the agent of burning another woman.

This is not just  another (ho hum)  male movie reversal of what really happens during the longest war.  This is being touted as the “greatest” horror movie ever, under the hand of the “great” Sam Raimi.  Imagine the lasting impression of those pictures that say thousands upon thousands of words in the minds of every girl and woman who sees the movie, unaware of its power for mental manipulation in generating woman-fearing and woman-hating by women of women, especially older women.

In the longest war, man does not want young women to have any reason to be comfortable seeking the wisdom and comfort of old women who have seen and know the evil of man for what it is.  It’s not just entertainment, folks.  It’s mental entrainment to woman-hating with a complementary man-adoration no man deserves.

You can vote your money by refusing to buy tickets to movies of misogyny.  In this way you call out woman-hating for what it is.  You’ll feel better, and then nobody gets burned who doesn’t deserve to.

You are the resistance

May 26, 2009

Today’s “Hawt” top post on the wordpress.com blog follows these words with an image and chatty commentary.  Need I say more about the longest war?  The girls selling out the other girls, what Mary Daly called token torturers.  Women in service to men’s lives as if it’s a good (because “Hawt”) thing.

From Monsanto’s attempts to patent and genetically modify the global food supply — to globally distributed movies which never show meaningful bonding among women (but only women’s roles in service to men’s lives, even Amelia Earhart’s character  being co-opted this weekend at the multi-plex by Mormon mindscrubbed Amy Adams playing adoration to Ben Stiller in the Museum blockbuster series) —the longest  war continues its high-tech way.

Nobody needs John Connor, Terminator Salvation or the Governator.  If you’re viewing this and want victory for womankind in the longest war, you are the resistance.

Sheila Jeffreys is My Hero …

May 24, 2009

Found this online today in the category of what has been called sex-positive feminist women (aka sex workers and others who embrace the agency of being “hot” sexually) mistaking Professor Sheila Jeffreys as their target in fighting against others (described as “anti-sex” by sex-pozzie women) who as feminists oppose  men sexually exploiting women → 

Just like peace at any price, sex (and men having a piece) at any price cannot be good.  In the longest war, pitting one group of women against another has been an effective divide-and-conquer strategy, aided by much media manipulation.  The anti-Sheila blogger indicates that she keeps adjusting her medication (which would necessarily affect her consciousness).  Psych-drugs and shrinks as a weapon of mass deception against women in man’s longest war, yes, oh, yes, but that would be another post about misogyny in the philosophy of psychiatry.

The contrasting image which also relates to the  divide-and-conquer strategies of men against feminism is this one posted by Allecto at Gorgon Poisons→

sheila is my sister

Sex on men’s terms, devastating to women because there’s a real (if undeclared) war with very real violence going on.  To end man’s war against womankind may take men not just doing laundry and ending non-sexual violence, but practicing celibacy as a commitment to not exploiting women.  Real celibacy, not what Catholic priests pretend to do.  Unless men wise up and take better action, Mother Nature might just wipe men out and leave women with procreative parthenogenesis.  Life will go on, with or without men.

I’m proposing celibacy for bi and het-sex men (any men born as men interested in sexual relations with women) as the ground of being to expand male consciousness as a pathway toward real peace.  Celibacy for this group of people would mean that no woman would be sexually exploited by any xy-chromosome humanoid while a lasting peace is sought through heightened awareness  for all.   Peace at any price?  No.  But peace may come if we can see the chronic global misogyny without denial, and break  free from male-dominant global culture.    

None of us have to agree on all points about how to end male violence.  But some of our best and most thought-provoking thinkers, some of them lesbians like Professor Sheila Jeffreys (who abhors violence and domination in any form),  regularly receive mean-spirited public attacks about their views.  Yet they keep on provoking our thoughts outside the sound-bite box of what’s “hot” right now.

Sheila Jeffreys is my hero.

Images, Parody, Social Criticism

May 24, 2009

My images on this blog will generally come from CA and TX, with an emphasis on Los Angeles (belly of the beast, beautiful beach, LA the extraordinary).  Check “About” for an example of my images on this blog for parody of war and social criticism of man’s longest war, the war against womankind.

If not an image from the internet being critiqued, parodied,  socially criticized or otherwise publicly commented upon, all  images including the blog banner are my own raw-image, digital-camera work (never Photoshopped).  If you want to link to this blog for free viewing by others, you’re most welcome.

Where’s the Goddess Kali or the Mythic Spiderwoman when we need Her?  We instead see little boys wearing Spiderman suits.  What’s left of Infinite Womankind in popular consciousness resides mainly behind metaphoric bars, devoid of righteous fury about man’s unacknowledged war against womankind.

In 2008 Iron Man bought the Girl Friday a slinky dress, Jack Nicholson asked Morgan Freeman (stroking a slinky car in the Bucket List) if he was going to “drive it or buy it a dress,” and Charlize Theron surrendered her super-hero cape to lick an ice cream cone and adore husband and son while Hancock stayed a super-hero.

But —  crumbs to feminism —  at least in 2008 a woman  played a super-hero with a brain for a few minutes in a big-budget movie.
