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.

What’s a Super-Suit’s gal to do …

June 6, 2009

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?

If you doubt there’s a longest war …

June 6, 2009

Collectively the images here show the longest war, so if you have any doubt, go to prior month’s archives including a click to “older entries.”  Also check out the iconic super-male Hugh Jackman.  He’s super-hawt in his all-inclusive sexuality for normalizing focus on the physical body yet, being male, he usually wears a tux or power suit to cover all but his head and hands (thinking and take-action instruments) when seen in public.  The super-suit preserves the power image of the  overlord icon.

Not that Hugh Jackman is necessarily conscious of the social impact while he’s in the limelight raking in money.  But the rest of us need to ask how our minds are being manipulated in the name of others making a buck.

Ask not how hawt the he-man (any him, Him, He or hymn), but ask how to protect yourself because forewarned is forearmed.    What you don’t know can hurt you in the longest war.  Today’s “Scoop” for a male-dominant icon in summer 2009 theaters as  Wolverine —   Hugh Jackman  wielding the tarot card of “Death” while speaking down to a rapt, silent  young woman:

Kate Millett, Sheila Jeffreys: Key Thinkers

June 6, 2009

Roots of all war as positioned to divide and conquer womankind can be seen on the pages with photos of Iranian feminist-women and pro-feminist-men  in a 1982 book about experiences in Iran by Kate Millett (photos by Sophie Keir).  University of Melbourne professor Sheila Jeffreys champions Kate Millett  in 2009  as a key thinker on this planet, here, a lecture .

Professor Jeffreys also is a key thinker and hero to pro-feminist men, sister to feminist women (another post on the point in May 2009 if you’re looking in archives).

Not that you’re likely to know the names of Millett, Keir and Jeffreys in 2009.  The longest war tries to make sure that you don’t. As if the personal creative genius  — and the suppression of the genius of womankind —  is not political.  The politics of the longest war, man’s war against womankind.

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  —

Facing a growing state budget deficit, that could reach nearly $24 billion, AP – Facing a growing state budget deficit, that could reach nearly $24 billion, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger … [Socially critiqued excerpts from mainstream, man-stream, male-stream, malevolent, male-violent  media, as typical on this blog]

By SAMANTHA YOUNG, Associated Press Writer Samantha Young, Associated Press Writer 1 hr 30 mins ago

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 …”

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.
