News: Will Golf Courses Save America? | Feminism @ Forbes | Is Jezebel Top Attack Dog on Smart Sensuality Women?

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

The New York Times Sunday magazine tees off in Benton Harbor, Michigan, a closed-factories, blue-collar cown that’s suffered tremendously over the last few decades of declining manufacturing and industrial jobs. Today, Benton Harbor is home to an luxe green resort called Harbor Shores with a jewel of a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course that meanders into Lake Michigan.

Written by Jonathan Mahler, author of “Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bronx Is Burning”, with a title Now That the Factories Are Closed, It’s Tee Time in Benton Harbor, Mich you get the drift that this in-depth look at America is a deeply disturbing look at American decay of factories, jobs and civil rights. Can the haves save Benton Harbor, where the democratically-elected government has been replaced by an emergency-manager? And how many other towns and cities across America are in the same condition? Will the Supreme Court rule that state governments don’t have the power to throw out municipally-elected governments, school boards, mayors, taking over America’s towns in the process.

It may be tee time for luxury lovers in Benton Harbor, but the town itself is in deep trouble.

Feminism at Forbes

Forbes Woman asks what feminism means today and is it still relevant? Jenna Goudreau polls women’s rights changemakers from Gloria Steinem and Jane Gonda to Latoya Peterson, 28, editor of the blog Racialicious about what feminism means to them.

Recently USA Today published multiple articles, “Is feminism over the hill?” and “Feminism is evolving for a new generation,” about the complicated relationship young people have with it today.

Adriana Lima | Russell James | Donna Karan Spring 2012

Anne was simply livid this weekend, reading Jezebel’s attack dog story about Donna Karan’s Spring 2012 ad campaign, one that we love. Shot by Russell James, the images reflect the heart and soul of the Smart Sensuality woman for whom fashion, style, philanthropy, brains and right intentions must be as integrated a concept as possible. Smart Sensuality = smart, sexy with heart, a triad that has defined Donna Karan’s life and career.

Read the details on Fashonista, where Anne left this comment:

There are “the critics”. And there are people who take action on key global issues and who have dedicated decades of their lives trying to do the right thing with good intentions. I would like to see the Jezebel crew move from being the eternal critics to getting their beautiful female butts on airplanes — as Donna Karan does — and do something for people by actions, good intentions and NOT SEPARATING these issues from the public consciousness, which is the intent of Donna’s ad.

Jezebel performs a service, but they also lay in wait to drive page views by stirring the politically-correct, finding-fault pot week by week. America is pc gone madly insane. Donna Karan can hold her head high — not only on Haiti and this ad campaign— but on a lifetime of dedicated efforts on behalf of people in need. She has one of the most humanitarian hearts and consciousness in the fashion industry.

To see Donna Karan trashed on this topic is nauseating, and I’d like to know what the Jezebel crew actually DOES to help those suffering terribly in the world of the haves and the have nots. Talk is cheap. Let’s see some action from Jezebel beyond dividing us. And the photos are not creepy. They were shot by Russell James who also has a track record of outstanding service advocating for the indigenous people of Australia. Russell James doesn’t do ‘creepy’ photography. His show is back in NYC I believe. Again, we have the critics and those who take action, like Russell James.

USC Men Wanting Quality Pie

USC Frat Boy Launches ‘Gullet Report’ for Expert Cocksmen Getting Quality Pie AOC Sensual Rebel 3/9/2011

There are days when smart women just shouldn’t get up in the morning. I’m waiting for Phyllis Schlafly’s new diatribe against American feminists to hit Amazon on March 15. Schlafly’s view of women like me is:

I submit to you that the feminist movement is the most dangerous, destructive force in our society today. […] My analysis is that the gays are about 5% of the attack on marriage in this country, and the feminists are about 95%. […] I’m talking about drugs, sex, illegitimacy, drop outs, poor grades, run away, suicide, you name it, every social ill comes out of the fatherless home. ~Phyllis Schlafly

After all, we ladies should just suck it in and understand that boys will be boys. Schlafly refuses to hold men responsible for any ills in American society. In fact, smart women have totally emasculated men in her playbook.

A degrading email — allegedly from a Kappa Sigma frat boy at USC — supports my argument that American men aren’t dead doormats yet.  What’s tough for a woman like myself is that as an ardent feminist, I never fought against men, even though I am blamed for it. Anne

The December 2011 issue of Fast Company has a lot to say about girls. We share Louis C.K. writing: The Next Steve Jobs Will Be A Chick.

Overall, I think it’s a good time to have a girl in the 21st century because things are changing, with more opportunities for women. But girls are still the underdog, which means they’ll work harder, and everybody loves an underdog. The next Steve Jobs will totally be a chick, because girls are No. 2—and No. 2 always wins in America. Apple was a No. 2 company for years, and Apple embodies a lot of what have been defined as feminine traits: an emphasis on intuitive design, intellect, a strong sense of creativity, and that striving to always make the greatest version of something. Traditionally, men are more like Microsoft, where they’ll just make a fake version of what that chick made, then beat the shit out of her and try to intimidate everybody into using their product.

Mario Philippona’s Female Form Furniture AOC Sensual Rebel 3/20/2010

Seeing is believing. Men are not “cads” in the fact that they are more interested in and responsive to visual sexually arousing stimuli than are women. They can’t help themselves. Men are captive to visual imagery … not merely below the waist … but in  the core of their brain being.

Jennifer Lewis on Gender Power | Taryn Andreatta on Natural Submission of Women | Anne on '60s Feminist History

Goth Goes Solar

Akiss Paraskevopoulos’ ‘Petites Gouettes De Soleil’ AOC Private Studio

Fashion with no meaning is just another form of political correctness. Our clothes, our images, our books all make significant statement about who we are as people — unless one is a totally mindless fashionista.

The fact that the Akiss Paraskevopoulos images are light and not dark, holds meaning of Phoenix Rising for me. I see the Smart Sensuality woman — and the men who embrace her — in these images. She is the 21st century heroine who MUST come out of the shadows and take a position on the issues of our times, before it is too late.

Not just Pope Benedict says you have no right to birth control; the voters of Mississippi are about to give the state full control of women’s bodies, including laws that will outlaw birth control.

The politically-correct expression of the Gothic spirit that says ‘whatever’ must draw some lines in the sand. Pick up your damn swords and fight before you have no rights left. I made this choice a few years ago, writing ‘Controlling Women’s Bodies Is a Fght to the Finish’ and ‘Drawing a Line in Lubna’s Sand, Saying ‘No More’ to the Growing, Global Erosion of Women’s Rights in the Name of Any Man’s Religion’.  

I did not become an ardent feminist (that bad girl so many women love to hate) to see Mississippi’s social conservatives led by Mike Huckabee rule America.

‘They’ are trying to take away your right to birth control, my dears. Now it’s your turn to take a stand. This is the Alamo for American women, for our daughters and granddaughters. Support Mississippians for Healthy Families. I am.   Anne

Jennifer Lewis On Gender

OSU’s Jennifer Lewis On Gender Balance, Submission & Women’s Power AOC Sensual Rebel

Jennifer Lewis of Columbus, Ohio is an Anne of Carversville guest contributor, one of several women who will share her thoughts on Taryn Andreatta’s editorial ‘The Offering’. Jennifer is pursuing a combined masters/doctorate degree in social work at Ohio State University.

I am so completely into the notion that men are naturally attracted to certain aspects of a woman. And it is true, our voices, scent and curvature draw most men in. It’s as natural as the sun rising and falling. They need stimulation to their senses. They want to see, hear, smell (and yes taste) a feminine woman. Now let me be clear, I am not a Barbie…

Taryn Andreatta’s ‘The Offering’

Taryn Andreatta On Artistic Nudity, the Female Body, Feminism & Divinity AOC Sensual Rebel

Anne: How do you think a feminist would respond to these images? What is our perspective when looking at these images?

Taryn: Feminists operate on a level that condemns the objectification of the female body. “The Offering” is an attempt to address that issue and prove that women have intellect, sentiment, depth, fragility, and femininity beyond this contemporary notion of women being perceived as objects or robots for display. It is placing emphasis on the reality that women are a large part of mother nature forming a complex web of generational longevity spanning the continuum of life and humanity.

Anne on Feminist Truths

America’s Feminists Are Misquoted & Discredited By Our Daughters AOC Sensual Rebel

I can fight Pope Benedict and Michele Bachmann, but fighting Taryn tears me to pieces. Her version of second wave feminism causes me much pain at a time when we are trying to mobilize women and men of every age against the personhood amendment which will not only end all abortion rights in America, but also birth control, stem cell research and the success of in vitro fertilization. The first vote in this dramatic turn of events for American women comes in Mississippi in about 10 days.

The ism that the truth will set us free has never applied to American feminism, due to the deeply religious nature of our culture, the primacy of testosterone-ridden traditionalism in our heritage, and the centuries-old psychological beast of generations on every continent feeling the need to discredit each other as part of their own liberation.

Molly Jong-Fast’s summer pronouncement that women worldwide have all the rights they need, and her humiliation of her mother writer Erica Jong’s feminist values as being the provenance of luxury-living, educated (white) women are the best current example of younger women needing to establish their own self identity by metaphorically slaying their mothers.

In the case of American feminism, daughters are slaying the ideals of the women who bore them at the expense — not only of themselves — but their own daughters and future generations of American women. It is our daughters who are handing the social conservatives all women on a silver platter, and I fail to see the power of those actions.

Feminism and the Question of Objectification

A bit overwhelmed by Taryn’s philosophy of the natural order between the sexes, I’ve returned to my own feminist texts and discussions about second wave feminist perspectives. A good place for young  women to learn what we really said is the Stanford (University) Encyclopedia of Philosophy. The section Feminist Perspectives on Objectification addresses Taryn’s assertions about feminism directly, providing an excellent review of the totality of feminist thought and not the much-quoted words and now sacrosanct truths about feminism uttered by Andrea Dworkin and Catharine MacKinnon.
