Check the billboard in the “normal” landscape, and ask yourself:  Whose  faces, whose bodies are normalized as the subordinated class to be what “gentlemen”  want?  Do you ever see billboard images of male faces in make-up, men in come-hither  poses for sex clubs, even so much as silhouettes of a nude male body in broadcast on the public-street space where you run errands?  Talk about the insanity of normality.

Today’s social commentary against People magazine’s backdrop:  “When they were together, [Anne] Heche and [Ellen] DeGeneres were considered the country’s most prominent lesbian couple.  [Jude’s commentary:  The Heche-DeGeneres relationship ended, triggered in part by Heche’s life to that point dealing with what male-dominant society labeled as mental illness following Heche’s reports of sexual abuse and deception at the hands of her father. Anne’s father, Donald Heche, was a choir director in a Baptist church who frequented gay bars at night. Heche found out about her father’s double life when he was dying of AIDS and she was only 12 years old.]

Heche described herself as “insane,” according to ABCNEWS.com. [Jude’s commentary:  Thus the socially high-profile Heche, by personal life history programmed with the man-God religion of Baptist He, Him and hymn which predisposes women to accept “the word” of all male authority figures, accepted the male label “insane” as directed at herself personally, instead of at society in general.  She bought into the book of male-dominant psychiatry and male-dominant insanity legalism as if only an individual matter.  Heche described her efforts to structure an alternative reality in a publicized interview, efforts that to a caring person would seem creative under her cultural and social circumstances.]

“[Heche] believed she was two people. One was Anne Heche, The other was Celestia, who was from another planet and spoke in a different language directly with God.” [Jude dude commentary: Cultural He, Him and hymn conditioning made it mentally inconceivable for Heche to rely upon Goddess (as a mental construct of iconic female-form liberator from the man-God made in man’s image as her higher power).  She could not conceive of a Goddess/female liberator for herself even in her rather creative “insane” fantasy life which temporarily allowed her to escape the dissonance of hateful hypocrisy from a father who outwardly normalized “our Father” as a Baptist choir director while secretly having one-night stands with gay men, his double life divulged to Heche only when he died of AIDS before his daughter was a teen-ager.]  [Original source, Stephen Silverman, People magazine, 2001; social commentary by Jude]

Small wonder I propose celibacy for all men, everywhere, until dominance, war and duplicity cease and desist.

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….”
