What’s a Super-Suit’s gal to do …

You  can see before and after photos of  greasy and not-so-greasy gams  when  Gwyneth Paltrow appeared on the Tonight Show (gams rhymes with hams, and we all know where hams come from):

Gwyneth’s Greasy Gams – Goddess: celebrity moms – omg! on Yahoo

It’s not sick (as in culturally creepy) enough that any culturally notable “she” like Paltrow is expected to appear in American public culture with more touchable body on view than men typically need to show.  The 180 degrees from sick that’s still sick (i.e.,  culturally creepy) in patriarchal Islamic culture would literally cover up her thinking-instrument head and shroud her body as if dead from any contact with the natural world.

But I’m American and posting this post as a post-Christian not a Muslim (thank Goddess to disdain the multi-culti nonsense that refuses to call misogyny the woman-hating it is), so check out today’s online hysterics about  Gwyneth Paltrow’s legs.  The “greasy gams,” not the prodigious talent.  In context of  last season’s blockbuster movies, Oscar-winner Paltrow  played an iconic feminine subordinate gal putting her own life at risk to support a Super-Suit Iron Man’s exploits.  (She wore perfectly a slinky backless dress bought by her boss the Super-Suit.  She deadpanned the weak lines of script for her underwritten character with outrageous humor.  She acted heroically in high heels.)

Today’s online Gwyneth buzz irreverently links the hubbub about Paltrow’s gams  to  Goddess  in the same week  man-made religion’s big-three God (Islam, Judaism, Christianity) was front and center the Obama news as if that God has ever been about peace instead of piece.

Today’s trivialization of Goddess and woman occurs in context of the  beautiful Gwyneth (whose extraordinary good looks few could ever hope to achieve), who is also an actor of genius,  a mother and otherwise gifted.  If Paltrow is not a woman to be respected instead of trivialized —  then any normal woman might wonder, beneath being the “good sport” she’s constantly being asked to be despite man’s trivialization of her own life and womankind in general — who is?
