Harōkiti Futatabi

Posted in Society on February 6th, 2015

I wasn’t entirely jesting when I stated that I was concerned that Courtney Stodden’s 2012 “Hello Courtney” video, which was themed as cross between Hello Kitty and Nekomimi, was going to sour America on Nekomimi – as well as emotionally scar many women who grew up with Hello Kitty.

Harōkiti Futatabi

Fortunately, there’s a plethora of evidence to support the theory that these memes are more than robust enough to survive Stodden’s unusual sense of sexy and appropriate. 😉 So Harōkiti Futatabi (Hello Kitty Again).

Break The Franchise

That's not an ass. It's a space station
Kim Kardashian – Break The Franchise

It may be redundant, as Lucas managed to fairly authoritatively break Star Wars with his prequels, episodes I – III, let’s give Kim Kardashian and her ass a shot at it.

That’s no moon. It’s a space station.

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

Just because the celebutante couldn’t seem to manage to break the internet doesn’t mean she can’t break an already fractured franchise. 😉

Why Relationships Work

Posted in Society on April 16th, 2014

 

Kirsten Dunst

Actress Kirsten Dunst spoke her mind about femininity, masculinity, and relations earlier this week in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK.

I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…

Of course, various and sundry Feminists instantly jumped up to savage her for such an “anti-Feminist” opinion.

The most telling rejoinder to Dunst’s statement of opinion came from Jezebel. Their response was entitled “Kirsten Dunst Thinks Ladies In Relationships Should Wife the Fuck Out.” It’s particularly telling because the title uses “wife” as a tacit pejorative and this aptly and poetically sums up Feminism’s position on relationships.

Feminism’s Gag Orders

Jezebel’s response was just the most overtly telling though. All the various screeds against Kirsten Dunst’s opinions have two things in common: the underlying postulate of relationships being predicated upon a power dynamic that is strictly hierarchical; and the strong desire to gag any woman who doesn’t accept that Feminist postulate.
