USC Frat Boy Launches 'Gullet Report' For Expert Cocksman Getting Quality Pie

Updated on Thu, March 10, 2011 by Registered CommenterAnne

Updated on Fri, April 1, 2011 by Registered CommenterAnne

Street in Panama via shesezz.comThere 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.

My relations with men generally have been superb in my career and to a more limited extent in my personal life. I know a lot of good guys.  Being on the other end of the gender relations perspective with life experience, watching the Republicans declare war on women in Washington, working for women internationally — I do believe that misygyny runs really deep in cultures everywhere in the world.

The New Testament doesn’t speak of women all that much differently than this email.  That’s just the way it is for women in this world, and I’m exhausted with fighting the battle for recognition of women’s worth in a religious, political and social culture — including fashion — that is more misogynist than I ever wanted to believe as a starry-eyed young woman.

The USC’s Daily Trojan reinforces the fact that authorities haven’t established that the sender is actually a member of Kappa Sigma. It could be a prank from a competing fraternity, trying to discredit Kappa Sigma.

Pat Lauer, president of USC’s Interfraternity Council, condemned the email, saying:

“The e-mail is repulsive, it’s ridiculous, it’s insulting … It’s just really sad that this e-mail doesn’t reflect the standard of any fraternity or chapter in our community. What’s more shocking is that such a respected fraternity’s name is on that e-mail.”

Jezebel has printed the entire email and we will, too. In bold, I will highlight my favorite parts of this depiction of women at USC.

To the Distinguished Gentlemen of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity:

As I have mentioned I will be starting a weekly Gullet Report. In response to the Soft Report, I felt it necessary to offer a contrasting and more uplifting telegram. My theories and practices are elaborated in more detail in the body of this email.

Please send me all of your hook-ups in Tucker Max format (for those unfamiliar with this legend, google will suffice). These renditions should be elaborate and interesting. I want raw data on who fucks and who doesn’t. In conclusion the gullet report will strengthen brotherhood and help pin-point sorostitiutes more inclined to put-out. From my experience when a female goes Ksig shes typically repeats.

For your entertainment read on and pause for note taking. My hope is that ALL of our brothers will follow this creed with pride and distinction.

I have come to write this memo to you today to educate on the only life worth living, that of a Cocksman. A Cocksman is taught to live by the two most applicable principles I know: The Pie and the Gullet. You may already be lost in trying to comprehend this logic. Do not worry this is completely understandable. By the end of this memo, you will not only gain a greater understanding of what it means to live, but you will have embraced a lifestyle. However, in order for this to happen you first must know a couple key terms.

Note: I will refer to females as “targets”. They aren’t actual people like us men. Consequently, giving them a certain name or distinction is pointless.

Quotes About Feminists and Women's Rights | Liberation

Images: Hana Ben Abdesslem by Karim Sadli via TFS

In honor of International Women’s Day, we thought it might be great to share some quotes on feminism. For the record, feminism is defined as:

1. the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes

2. organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests

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

Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed.  If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.”  They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.”  ~Clare Boothe Luce

Men weren’t really the enemy - they were fellow victims suffering from an outmoded masculine mystique that made them feel unnecessarily inadequate when there were no bears to kill.  ~Betty Friedan

It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union…. Men, their rights and nothing more; women, their rights and nothing less.  ~Susan B. Anthony

 The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, “It’s a girl.”  ~Shirley Chisholm

Women's Bodies Suffer Under Immoral Gazes of Righteous Men

Lisa Catherine Brown

Transparency About My Bias

I completed the Pew Research Survey Anne has posted on AOC and my results confirmed what I already know about myself:  I am more accepting of changes in family structure than 97% of the public.

Yes, this progressive married mom with four kids and a happy husband living in Michigan is an open-minded woman willing to explore new ideas and ways of thinking. In fact, I am more progressive than Anne, making us a good balance for each other.


Less intimidating, put this way – my response indicates that I am an ACCEPTER along with 31% of the American public. From this perspective, I am far from alone in accepting change in societal norms, values and judgments.

The Modesty Survey

Yesterday I came across a survey disturbing to me in many ways – The Modesty Survey, a project of Rebelution, Timothy 4:12, a teenage revolution against low standards.

In case you don’t want to dust of your bible here is the Timothy 4:12 passage that Rebelution includes in it’s title graphic:

BBC's 'The Bible's Buried Secrets' Says God Had a Wife

Dr Stavrakopoulou is a senior lecturer in the Hebrew Bible at the University of Exeter, and gained a doctorate in theology from OxfordRedTracker| Dr Francesca Stavrakopoulou is causing mighty controversy in Britain over her upcoming BBC series ‘The Bible’s Buried Secrets’.  I confess that one of my earliest projects decades ago was a small women’s journal ‘The Gospel According to Lilith’, and so this topic fascinates me. 

Like growing numbers of academic scholars, Dr Stavrakopoulo argues that Eve was not responsible for the Fall of Man and not even the first woman. The story of the Garden of Eden wasn’t even included in the first book of the Old Testament.

“Eve, particularly in the Christian tradition, has been very unfairly maligned as the troublesome wife who brought about the Fall,” Dr Stavrakopoulou said. “Don’t forget that the biblical writers are male and it’s a very male-dominated world. Women were second-class citizens, seen as property.”

Dr Stavrakopoulou — who admits she is an atheist and is causing a brouhaha because of her admission — argues that God had a wife, based on Biblical texts that refer to ‘asherah’. Religious scholars consider Asherah as a fertility goddess in lands now covered by modern-day Syria, and she was half of a ‘divine pair’ with God.

Dr Stavrakopoulou with a reconstruction of a biblical inscription mentioning Asherah and YahwehTracing the Bible back to Syria 10,000 BC is the theme of ‘Mysteries of the Garden of Eden’, a series running on the History Channel in America. The series is potentially more controversial than the BBC’s because the religious scholars are all men associated with religious universities like Notre Dame and Pepperdine University.

Picasso Believed Women Were Goddesses Or Doormats | Sounds Familiar

Updated on Wed, March 9, 2011 by Registered CommenterAnne

‘Les Demoiselles d’Avignon’ by Pablo PicassoI’ve never been a fan of Picasso, except for the fact that his paintings and demonized relationships with women are made visual and the subject of numerous biographies. In his genius Picasso opens up the male psyche and lays bare his obsession with femaleness.

Reading this morning Picasso’s words: “You cannot go against nature. She is stronger than the strongest of men. We can permit ourselves some liberties, but in details only” made me think of International Women’s Day and the women of Egypt marching today on behalf of themselves.

Across Egypt nine in 10 women have their clitoris cut out, the past and present remnants of a culture that believes female sensuality is more powerful than “the strongest of men. We can permit ourselves some liberties, but in details only”.

‘Les Demoiselles d’Avignon’ by Pablo Picasso was originally titled ‘the Brothel of Avignon’ and it’s said that Picasso had all five women for his pleasure.

Each figure is depicted in a disconcerting confrontational manner and none are conventionally feminine. The women appear as slightly menacing and rendered with angular and disjointed body shapes. Two are shown with African mask-like faces and three more with faces in the Iberian style of Picasso’s native Spain, giving them a savage aura. In this adaptation of Primitivism and abandonment of perspective in favor of a flat, two-dimensional picture plane, Picasso makes a radical departure from traditional European painting. The work is widely considered to be seminal in the early development of both Cubism and modern art. Demoiselles was revolutionary and controversial, and led to wide anger and disagreement, even amongst his closest associates and friends. via Wiki

If we acted on the universal truths about women revealed in Picasso’s art, his life would have more relevance to me.

I like how the Telegraph described a story about Picasso, related to his 2009 show ‘Picasso: Challenging the Past’ at London’s National Gallery:

Mark Hudson looks at how the artist saw the women in his life — as either goddesses or doormats.

‘Women are machines for suffering,’ Picasso told Françoise Gilot in 1943. As the 61-year-old artists embarked on a nine-year-affair with the 21 year-old student said: ‘For me there are only two kinds of women: goddesses and doormats.’

Egyptian Women Plan "Million Women March' Tuesday March 8th

Andrea Bruce for The New York Times Women led chants on Friday in Tahrir Square in Cairo, where the new prime minister spoke.Beyond the Veil|  The NYTimes updated post-Egyptian revolution women’s rights issues, writing that women stood again yesterday with the men in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. While addressing the Lara Logan incident, in which the CBS correspondent was sexually attacked by a mob of men in the hours after Hosni Mubarak’s resignation, the newspaper doesn’t mention that a Lara Logan rally was held yesterday in Tahrir Square.

The National reports that Karim Mohy, organiser of the Lara Logan rally, was accused by Egyptian men of “bringing shame on Egypt.” 

He (Mohy) created an event page on Facebook called “Protest to demand justice for Lara Logan” and a group page called “Brave Hero of Egypt’s Revolution: Lara Logan.” According to a detailed description of the group in both Arabic and English, the protest aims to “create awareness,” demand that “the government and military bring her attackers to justice,” and shed light on the issue of “sexual assault and sexual harassment,” which it calls “a plague on [Egyptian] society.” via Al-Masry Al-Youm

“There is no problem with harassment here,” said one man, qutoed by The National. “This just makes Egyptians look bad.”

Women’s Rights in Egypt

To many Westerners the reality that 90 percent of Egyptian women still experience FGC (female genital cutting) is evidence of the challenges that exist for Egyptian women. The World Economic Forum ranked Egypt 125th out of 134 countries when judging gender equality.

Woman | Alana Zimmer | Miles Aldridge | Numéro No. 83 May 2007

These images of Alana Zimmer, lensed by Miles Aldridge for  Numéro No. 83 May 2007 are perfect for sharing a very important study about ballet dancers versus practitioners of Vipassana or mindfulness meditation.

Participants were wired up with electrodes to monitor their physiological responses to emotionally charged scenes in movies and then used a rating dial to report their state of mind.

Both groups reported the same responses on the reponses dial — horror, anguish, sorrow, saddness, fear.

Just as women lie like crazy in their responses to sexual visual cues — versus what the sensors say is really happening in their bodies — the ballet dancers exhibited a complete disconnect from physiological emotional responses, as measured by the sensors.

Coupled with a January study ‘Rich Lack Empathy & Face Reading Skills’, I am now officially using the term Fashion Monasticism. It is the opposite of New Eroticism.

Fashion Monasticism has a pope, just like Religious Monasticism. He lives in Paris.
