Psych-drugging as longest war tactic: the girls’ gulag

June 13, 2009

Demonic Males” ( see post below) … Demonic Males: Apes and the Origins of Human Violence by Richard Wrangham

… invented psychiatry as used to marginalize women’s inherent dissonance with being the gender underclass and, more famously, to diagnose and drug Soviet dissidents from the USSR’s politics in gulags during that regime.  What I just wrote is a statement, a rhetorical summary of something that seems true to me.  Believing in a dissident’s or a woman’s “disability” as psychiatrically defined and then psych-drugged (when politically and sexually motivated) is therefore not for me.  Having said that, it’s because I trust female genius (and dislike what the man-made dominator system has done to the world) far too much to buy in to the predominant male theories of female mental dyfunction.  But then, I’m no M.D.; and I’ll blog more about psych-drugging another night.

Meanwhile, I’ve had what may be some better thoughts about my Sheila Jeffreys coverage and modified the She’s-my-Hero post which was prompted by a self-described feminist’s blog  which has a category for “Sheila Fu#$ing Jeffreys,” minus my redaction by symbols.   There’s no point in going back and forth on this in the divide-and-conquer game established by patriarchy.

Until I return to the topic of psych-drugging, here’s a book cover from a M.D. (Dr. Peter Breggin), another man who’s no fan of the gulag. Toxic Psychiatry Toxic Psychiatry

“Demonic Males”: Science text by a Harvard man about males and male-dominator violence

June 12, 2009

Demonic Males:  Does the title say it all?  (Not demonic as in woo-woo religion but demonically bad behavior from an anthropological and zoological standpoint of research by top-level scientific male minds.)  In a male-violent world like ours  …

… could the answer to surviving and thriving  be as simple as to put women in charge?    More from Harvard  on the subject:  http://www.harvardmag.com/jf97/right.chimp.html.  But seriously, in a world like ours, how is putting women in charge going  to happen when the big-3 man-God religions which subordinate womankind have now been invoked by President Obama as a field of unification among men worldwide from Christian, Jewish and Islamic cultures? For days I made cell-phone calls for the guy using my laptop in his e-campaign to win swing states, and my daughter still holds on to the hope —  but I’m starting to wonder if the girls are once again going to be sold out by the big boys’ club.  Click to the prior post about the problem in the category, “President Obama.”

As to Demonic Males in general as a global gender group, it is my job on this blog to say more, so after reading the book it’s my commentary that:  (1)  the s/he hyena analysis of Demonic Males seemed far-fetched toward a male author’s need to implicate the females of some species in evolutionary violence, and (2) the analysis of buddy-bonded bands of bisexual female bonobos seemed skewed to say less about primate sisterhood than an anthropomorphized sort of soft-core primate-porn.

Longest-war propaganda power of every movie (and TV show)

May 24, 2009

Males dominant before the woman placement — or absence of women doing anything brave, intelligent or innovative in the typical blockbuster story media — conveys the message:

(1)  Which people (men) are  important for Angels & Demons (category, religion),

(2) Which people (men) are important for  Star Trek  (category science, Ohura being mainly an object of kissing at the transporter),

(3)  Which people (women) TV prefers to feature for almost naked characters who are not friends, and

(4) Which people (men) are pitched as being most lovable in general by everybody.

The impressions of today’s programming (a picture says  1,000 words) —

In man’s war against womankind, this day, every day, movies, TV and their characters are triple-whammy mental programming (as if the images aren’t enough):

(1) Images — full color, high definition pictures with motion’s impact;

(2) Language — vocalization to capture thought; and

(3) Music and sound-images (crashing, bashing, cooing, etc.) for heightened mental impression and creation of story’s stored memory.

Added to the above programming are the daily media headline lies of omission about who in general is doing the most violence to whom:
