50 SHADES EPIDEMIC THROWS UP AGAIN THE QUESTION : 

HAVE WOMEN RETREATED ON RESPECT ISSUE ???

Have women retreated in their desire for R.E.S.P.E.C.T

MALE IMAGINARY SEX TOY?

S’FUNNY BUT AS A GUY GROWIN UP IN THE 60’s/70’s –  ONE THING WE WERE WELL AWARE OF WAZ THAT WOMEN WERE STILL WELL INVOLVED IN THE FIGHT, IF NOT FOR EQUALITY THEN CERTAINLY  FOR  ‘RESPECT’.

THE CULTURE, THE BUZZ WAS CURRENT AT THE TIME ~ WOMEN DID NOT WANT TO BE THOUGHT OF AS MALE SEX TOYS!  NOR THE 2ND CLASS OF SOCIETY – WHETHER ACADEMICALLY, VOCATIONALLY OR PERSONALLY SPEAKING. – SURE THEY HAD THE VOTE – EQUALITY WAZ  EVOLVING NICELY BUT THERE WAZ STILL WORK TO BE DONE AND THE PUSH WAZ – ‘WE WANT MORE’

WHAT THEY WANTED MORE OF WAZ  R.E.S.P.E.C.T AND WHILE THERE WERE ACTUALLY NO SUFFRAGETTES STILL AROUND CHAINING THEMSELVES TO RAILINGS  – THE PROTEST WAS EVERYWHERE ON THE STREETS, IN THE SCHOOLS AND EDUCATIONAL EPI-CENTRES  AND IN THE WORK PLACE .

HIPPY CULTURE THREW AWAY THE BRA AS GERMAINE GREER’S ‘THE FEMALE EUNUCH’ WAS PUBLISHED, MOST OF THE HIPPY GIRLS I KNEW DIDNT BOTHER WITH THEM – DROOP OR NO DROOP.

ALL WOMAN ENJOYED THE SPECIAL ATTENTION ‘THEIR GENDER, THEIR CAUSE’ WAS GETTING! – EVEN IF MANY CLAIMED – ‘I DON’T WANT TO BE EQUAL  – LET MEN BE MEN AND WOMEN BE WOMEN’.

CONTRACEPTION GAVE WOMEN THE FREEDOM FROM THAT ‘GREATER RESPONSIBILITY’ THAT THE MALE HAD SO OFTEN USED TO HIS OWN ADVANTAGE. WE UNDERSTAND THAT NOW,  IT HAS BEEN WELL DOCUMENTED.

THE FEAR OF BEING LEFT ALONE TO GIVE BIRTH, SUPPORT AND RAISE A CHILD WAS STILL STRONG ENOUGH IN THOSE DAYS  TO HELP WOMEN RETAIN A DISCRETION, TO BE MORE  COY, CHASTE AND LESS KEEN TO THE FINAL SURRENDER THAN THEIR EAGER MALE PARTNERS WHO PRESSED THEM AS MALES ALWAYS HAVE AND ALWAYS WILL.

BUT WHY THEN TODAY, DO WE STILL HAVE LARGE NUMBERS OF SINGLE PARENT FAMILIES, MOST OF WHOM CONTINUE TO BE YOUNG WOMEN. HAVE WE REALLY PROGRESSED IN CERTAIN AREAS AT ALL?

THE ‘EMPOROR’S NEW CLOTHES’ COMES TO MIND WHEN CONSIDERING THE MODERN VIEW OF INCORRECT ATTITUDES AND WHILE ADDRESSING THE PROBLEMS OF THE PAST INTELLECTUALLY  IS BY NO MEANS PROOF THAT ANY REAL CHANGE HAS TAKEN PLACE AT ALL OR EVIDENCE THAT WOMEN HAVE EARNED A GREATER RESPECT WITHIN OUR CULTURE ~ ALTHOUGH PERSONALLY I FEEL THEY CERTAINLY HAVE..

I CAN REMEMBER A TIME WHEN ‘PLAYBOY’ MAGAZINE WAS FROWNED UPON AS A CHAUVINISTIC AND MISOGYNISTIC SYMBOL OF ALL THAT WAS BAD ABOUT THE MALE VIEW OF WOMEN. THE IDEA OF TRUSSING UP THE FEMALE FIGURE IN AN OUTFIT WITH EARS AND A TAIL WAS CONSIDERED QUITE UNIVERSALLY AS DEGRADING TO WOMEN. NOW WOMEN HAPPILY HAVE ‘ANN SUMMERS’ PARTIES IN THEIR HOMES WHERE THEY ARE ENCOURAGED TO LET GO THEIR SENSUAL SIDE  AND ENTERTAIN EACH OTHER BY DRESSING IN OUTFITS I AM SURE THEIR SIXTIES COUNTERPARTS WOULD HAVE FOUND FAR MORE HUMILIATING THAN HEFFNERS ‘CUTE’ BUNNY OUTFITS.

WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT 40 YEARS LATER, THE PLAYBOY LOGO, WORN SOLELY AT THAT TIME BY HEFFNER’S CREATION OF  THE SEXY ‘SLAVE-LIKE’ BUNNY GIRLS’,  WOULD TODAY ADORN WOMEN’S TEES AND EVEN CHILDRENS CLOTHES, DOWN TO TODDLERS SOCKS AND SHOES.

WOMENS AND GAYS MAGAZINES PORTRAY MEN IN A SIMILAR WAY TO HOW WOMEN HAD BEEN PORTRAYED. ALMOST AN ‘IF YOU CANT BEAT THEM THEN JOIN THEM’ ATTITUDE PREVAILED. IS THIS VIEW OF SEXUALITY ACTUALLY OKAY AND TO BE ENCOURAGED? IF SO THIS WOULD SUGGEST  THOSE SIXTIES LIBERTINES FROM THE AGE OF ‘FLOWER POWER’ WERE ACTUALLY REPRESSED AND PERPETUATING THEIR NEGATIVE MORAL BACKGROUNDS AND VICTORIAN-STANDARD UPBRINGINGS?  WHAT HAS CREATED THIS CHANGE AND IN MANY WAYS A REVERSAL OF EMPHASIS WITHIN THE MANIFESTO OF THE EMANCIPATION OF THE FEMALE RACE?  HAS THAT MANIFESTO BECOME FLAWED OR MAYBE ENLIGHTENED?

NOT MANY BRA-LESS WOMEN AROUND TODAY AS THE WONDER BRA LED A REVOLUTION OF SEXY, SUPPORT UNDERWEAR THE PLAYBOY GIRLS WOULD HAVE DIED FOR. WOMEN IF ANYTHING, MAY HAVE BECOME MORE INHIBITED,  MORE SLAVES TO THE COMMON SOCIAL VIEW OF FEMININITY AND IMAGE THAN POSSIBLY THEY EVER WERE. WOMEN  ARE HAPPY TO WEAR EVEN MORE PROVOCATIVE CLOTHING AND CONSEQUENTLY MAY BE POSSIBLY LESS LIBERATED OR MAYBE WISH TO BE LESS LIBERATED THAN THEIR 60’s/70’s PREDECESSORS.

THE TROUBLE IS THAT WHEN CONSIDERING SO MANY PAST ISSUES  IS THAT IN RECENT TIMES THERE HAVE BEEN TOO FEW ISSUES AT ALL, AT LEAST OVER THE PAST 20 YEAR OR SO.  WE SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN HOW TO COMPLAIN, DISAGREE OR PROTEST ABOUT ANYTHING. NOWADAYS SOCIETY BLITHELY ACCEPTS NEW SOCIAL PATTERNS EVEN WHEN THOSE ‘TRENDS’ HAVE BEEN SO CLEARLY DEVISED BY SOME FASHION OR MARKETING DESIGN-HOUSE OR EITHER A POLITICAL OR MEDIA SPIN DOCTOR.

AND SO TO THE NOW ~  AS 50 SHADES ; 5O SHADES DARKER ; 50 SHADES FREED SUGGEST THAT THE ANTI-SEXUAL REVOLUTION IS ACTUALLY GATHERING MOMENTUM AT STREET LEVEL AS WOMEN APPARANTLY ARE AWAKENING TO A GROWING REALISATION  THAT ‘SEXUAL EQUALITY’ MAYBE DID NOT ACTUALLY LIBERATE THEM IN QUITE THE WAY THAT MANY THOUGHT IT WOULD …

I DON’T PLAN TO ASSESS THE POPULARITY OF THESE ‘SEXUAL FANTASY BOOKS’ HERE – MANY MORE QUALIFIED THAN I WILL BE TIP TAPPING THEIR KEYBOARDS RIGHT NOW TO TRY AND EXPLAIN THE CURRENT PHENOMENON  THAT HAS EMERGED FROM ONE  MODERN WOMENS MIND. (THERES A PRETTY GOOD ATTEMPT AT THE BASE OF THIS ARTICLE ACTUALLY) – A MODERN WOMAN WHO HAS SUBSEQUENTLY AND APPARANTLY LIT THE FUSE OF MILLIONS OF WOMEN CURRENTLY IMMERSING THEMSELVES TODAY IN NOVELS DEVOTED TO THEMES INVOLVING ‘SUBMISSION’ ‘BONDAGE’  ‘SADISM’ AND ‘MASOCHISM’ – WHERE DID ALL THAT COME FROM EMILY PANKHURST?

‘RESPECT’ AND ‘DOMINATION’ ARE TWO CONCEPTS DIFFICULT TO HOLD ONTO OR JUGGLE WITH EQUALITY – YOU NEED TWO GOOD HANDS THATS FOR SURE – OBVIOUSLY MR GREY HAS TWO GOOD HANDS BUT THEY ARE NOT SHOWING TOO MUCH RESPECT – AND SO THE DEBATE CONTINUES – MODERN MAN AND MODERN WOMAN ARE ALL AT SEA LIKE JACK AND ROSE AND FIGHTING TO KEEP THEIR RELATIONSHIP ALIVE AND THE SHIP STILL SEEMS TO BE GOING DOWN … DOWN … DOWN !!!  OOO CAN I SAY THAT?

Are these sex toys?

ARE WOMEN STILL THOUGHT OF AS MALE SEX TOYS?

‘…men’s double standard of sex morals, whereby the victims of their lust are counted as outcasts, while the men themselves escape all social censure, really applies to morals in all departments of life. Men make the moral code and they expect women to accept it. They have decided that it is entirely right and proper for men to fight for their liberties and their rights, but that it is not right and proper for women to fight for theirs….’ EMELINE PANKHURST

Bob Dylan

“The ONLY TRUE POET OF THE 21ST CENTURY” – Alan Ginsberg

“Where Are You Tonight (Journey Through Dark Heat)”

written by Bob Dylan

There’s a long distance train rolling through the rain, tears on the letter I write
There’s a woman I long to touch and I miss her so much but she’s drifting
like a satelite
There’s a neon light ablaze in the green smoky haze, and laughter down on
Elizabeth Street
And a lonesome bell tone in that valley of stone where she bathed
in a stream of pure heat
Her father would emphasize you got to be more than street-wise but he practiced
what he preached from the heart
A full-blooded Cherokee, he predicted it to me the time and the place it
would start.

There’s a babe in the arms of a woman in a rage
And a longtime golden-haired stripper onstage
And she winds back the clock and she turns back the page
Of a book that nobody write
Oh, where are you tonight ?

The truth was obscure, too profound and too pure, to live it you have to explode
In the last hour of need, we entirely agreed, sacrifice was the code of the road
I left town at dawn, with Marcel and St. John, strong men betitled by doubt
I couldn’t tell her what my private thoughts were but she had some way of finding
them out
He took dead-center aim but he missed just the same, she was waiting putting
flowers on the shelf
She could feel my despair as I climbed up her hair and discovered her invisible self.

There’s a lion in the road, there’s a demon escaped
There’s a million dreams gone, there’s a landscape being raped
As her beauty fades and I watch her undrape
I won’t but then again, maybe I might
Oh, if I could just find you tonight.
I fought with ny twin, that enemy within, ’til both of us fell by the way
Horseplay and disease is killing me by degrees while the law looks the other way
Your partners in crime hit me up for nickels and dimes, the man you were loving
couldn’t never get clean
It felt outa place, my foot in his face, but he should-a stayed where his money
was green
I bit into the root of forbidden fruit with the juice running down my leg
Then I dealt with your boss, who’d never known about loss and who always was too
proud to beg
There’s a white diamond gloom on the dark side of this room and a pathway that
leads up to the stars
If you don’t believe there’s a price for this sweet paradise, just remind me to show
you the scars.

There’s a new day at dawn and I’ve finally arrived
If I’m there in the morning, baby, you’ll know I’ve survived
I can’t believe it, I can’t believe I’m alive
But without you it just doesn’t seem right
Oh, where are you tonight ?

IF I’M TO BE YOUR CAMERA

Posted: March 20, 2011 in KUDO'S

LYRICS FROM REM’S

‘CAMERA’

❖   ❖   ❖

From the inside room when the front room greeting

Becomes your special book, it was simple then.

When the party lulls, if we fall by the side.

Will you be remembered?

Will she be remembered?

Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed.

If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face?

I fell by you bed once, I didn’t want to tell you.

I should keep myself in between the pages

Of the green light room if we fall by the side.

Will you be remembered?

Will she be remembered?

Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed.

If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face?

From the inside room when the front room greeting

Becomes your special book, it was simple then.

When the party lulls, if we fall by the side.

I still like you, can you remember?

Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed.

If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face?

Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed.

If I’m to be your camera, then who will be your face?

STIPE LOVES THE CAMERA
