Baby Blue, Powder Blue, What’s a Woman to Wear …

Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor meets with Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., in AP – Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor meets with Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., in his hideaway office  …
Without womankind as a one-down global gender caste to the male Suits (see the wall pictures and Sen. Specter), men cannot perpetuate the hypocrisy of one-up leadership and control of womankind.  Despite intensely personal criticism of Supreme Court Nominee Sotomayor,   nobody seems to know where she really stands on a woman’s right to abortion.  (As graffiti used to show, before Roe v. Wade:   “If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.”) In this skirmish of the longest war, at  least there is a woman friend who tells the truth about female genius:   Rep. Nydia M. Velazquez, D-N.Y., a friend of Sotomayor: “She has the responsibility as a judge to question and to challenge. If it’s a man, that is `tough’ — it’s OK — if it’s a woman then somehow she is a bully or has a bad tamper,” Velazquez said.

Silent girl of the Hollyhood hill — Deadpool at least gets his mouth back in the May 2009 Wolverine movie.

Silent girl (circa 2006) of the Hollyhood hill --- Deadpool at least gets his mouth back in the May 2009 Wolverine movie.

Silent girl (circa 2006) and this week, in the sounds of silence, polls showed that for the first time in decades of American history, anti-abortionists were winning the popular tide of opinion that a non-breathing, unnamed male embryo matters more than a fully breathing woman who does not have the right to choose for her own body what men do not want.

The “Silent Hill” girl, literally denied her voice, is the poster child for global media’s dividing and conquering of girls (hot and not) in the longest war. When men fall victim to the longest war, we’re collateral damage. Controlling female booty has always been the prize in the war between categories number one and number two. Number one, those who get to speak (men mainly) and in so doing, with violence as the enforcer, inhabit the category of human beings self-defined as those who matter most, men.   These are the one-down wicked terms of engagement in man’s war against womankind, the real war undergirding every other war.
