Kanye West | John Currin's Boldly Moral Sensuality

It’s politically incorrect for me to say that I’m speechless over the quality of Kanye West’s blog. Writing a couple weeks ago that I was eager to see ‘next’, I had no idea that West would deliver John Currin’s lusty, leering paintings that are authentic parodies of American’s sex-obsessed culture, especially when it comes to females.

For every woman who screams ‘objectified’, I say we are. Get over it and convert the reality to personal power. Put John Currin together with his wife Rachel Feinstein, creator of “Crucifixion” 2003, and we have an Anne of Carversville match made in heaven.

Rachel Feinstein, “Crucifixion” 2003I’m not conversant on John Currin’s techniques, which some criticize as popular due to to the lowered standards of today’s art world. Perhaps. But I love the confidence and bold ability with with he satirizes society and its relationship with eroticism and sexuality, without reducing his subjects.

Fundamentalists Fight Women's Rights Far Beyond Israel

It’s not the case that is our go-to website for news on Israel. They just come up in our Google News searches. Good SEO and writing in English, I assume.

Researching the status of women in Israel yesterday, trying to understand the composition of the Israeli Knesset, the article Bill would reward parties that boast more women appeared.

The read brings to mind the Fundamentalist Conservatives in Egypt denying the rights of women to become judges, now thrown out by Egypt’s supreme court, but with another attempt at reconciliation scheduled for next week.

via Flickr’s Belgian_Sun_FlowerWomen’s Reservation Bill in India

I’m thinking also about last week’s vote in India on the Women’s Reservation Bill, delayed with fighting and a floor sit-in by seven Conservative members of India’s Rajya Sabha (Upper House of Parliament), now expelled by their Janata Dal-United party.

Note the decisive action taken against the seven members in India. For once bad boys paid the price: expulsion from the group.

Yes, I know their argument was framed around a desire for quotas for members of different castes, and also religious quotas for Muslims, Hindus and presumably other religous affiliations. 

Women’s rights will always be last in the minds of many men who believe we deserve none. At least in India, the men tried to disguise their determination to keep women out of politics by arguing for a broad blanket of quotas.

India’s Women’s Reservation Bill has moved to the Lok Sabha, the India’s Lower House of Parliament, where the same foes will fight its passage. Attempts to reduce the quota from 33% to 20% female representation have failed. The bill remains undiluted and is expected to pass.

In America where you would never know that abortion is legal, listening to the patriarchy on television saying that they answer to God and the Vatican — not the US Supreme Court — there’s a reasonable chance that a health care bill will pass.

The Vatican Strong-arms America

Perhaps the Vatican will not prevail in dictating America’s health care for women from Nancy Pelosi’s office, surely one of the most scandalous moments in American history. Given the Vatican’s pitiful record on women’s rights worldwide, I was chilled to the bone by their aggressive move against American women.

The Vatican’s concerns are on breeding new Catholics, not women’s health and wellness. The rights of a fully-grown woman with an IQ of 180 — the next Albert Einstein — are of lesser value to the Catholic patriarchy, than an unfertilized egg and wandering sperm.

Having their own hands full with errant bad boys doing far more harm to God’s creatures than I ever will, I’m in no mood for Catholic lectures on female morality.

Hopefully, I’ve made it clear that I have no ax to grind with Israel, more than any other patriarchy in the world. As US Commender of our forces in the Middle East Gen. Petraeus testified yesterday, the dispute between Israel and its neighbors does have an “enormous effect” on other regional issues.

Egypt's Supreme Court Backs Women Judges Against Conservatives

Beyond the Veil| Egypt’s women judges applauded a Constitutional Court ruling on Sunday, saying that women can be appointed to the country’s top advisory court.

The body’s general assembly voted overwhelmingly against female judges, reigniting a debate within the country over women holding senior government posts, particularly in the judiciary.

The Cairo-based New Women’s Foundation voiced their frustration in a press conference:

Chinese Mummies Blanketed in Sexual Symbolism

The title ‘Secrets of the Silk Road’, opening March 27-July 25, 2010 at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, sounds innocent enough.

I’ve spent enough years studying sexuality and fertility symbols to stop dead in my tracks, seeing this photo on the NYTimes website.

In the second paragraph of In a Desert in China, a Trove of 4,000-Year-Old-Mummies, we’re in agreement that you’re look at a 4,000 years-old phallic forest, whose inhabitants’bodies have been well preserved by the dry air.

In a sad and alarming story of the ‘usual’ ethnic tensions, Turkish-speaking Uighurs, joined in the last 50 years by Han settlers from China, men are fighting over the mummies, making historical identity claims and incumbent rights that somehow accompany historical origins.

Despite the political tensions over the mummies’ origin, the Chinese said in a report published last month in the journal BMC Biology that the people were of mixed ancestry, having both European and some Siberian genetic markers, and probably came from outside China.

Let’s get out of political tensions for the moment.

Legionaries of Christ Investigation | Another New Sex Abuse Scandal

Pope John Paul II gives his blessing to Rev. Marcial Maciel Degollado, founder of the Legion of Christ, at the Vatican in a November 2004 file photo. The late pope once called Maciel “an efficacious guide to youth.”Beyond the Veil|  The Vatican has completed its first phase investigation into the Legionaries of Christ, a conservative order once lauded by the Church in Rome but then disgraced when it became known that its founder had fathered a child and molested seminarians.

The Vatican said Tuesday its five investigators have completed their initial examination into the Legionaries 120 seminaries, schools and communities around the globe, and that a final report would still take several months for Rome to complete.

Rielle Hunter Owes Mark Seliger A BIG Apology

Could we please stop blaming men for everything in life and just focus on the big issues? Let’s stick with war, peace, and violence towards women.

Perhaps a century from now we will have time to listen to poor, sensually-confused Rielle Hunter’s revelation that she “cried for two hours” after seeing the photos in which she looks “repulsive”, accompanying her 10,000 word interview with GQ Hello, America, My Name Is Rielle Hunter.

Hunter told Barbara Walters that she trusted the photographer Mark Seliger and just “went with the flow”. via CBS News

Continuing, Hunter expected Seliger to take “classy” photos.

For Peace in the Middle East, It's Time for Women's Voices to Be Heard

Israel’s ambassador to Washington calls relations between the US and Israel as in a ‘crisis of historic proportions’, a 35-year low.

Netanyahu’s  coalition government relies on the settlers for its existence.

“I think that Netanyahu is at a moment of truth,” says Gideon Doron, a political science professor at Tel Aviv University. “He has to choose whether or not he wants to ignite the forces for peace, or whether he’ll go against the US and play for time. He can’t do that. It’s suicide.” via Christian Science Monitor

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni of the Kadima party, says that Netanyahu ‘is leading us to a diplomatic collapse.’ Livni was quoted in the LA Times on San. 25, 2010 as saying ‘reports of her political demise are premature.

Today it’s seems she was prescient.

Unable to put a government together last fall, Livni has sat on the sidelines, also refusing to join Netanyahu’s government.  We support Livni and her vision of a two-state solution for Israel. Like women investors who wait for dividends, rather than trading their stock, Livni has watched her political capital incubate.

We agree with this dynamic, visionary pragmatist when she says: “Gentlemen, the time has come for women.”  Livni’s words inspire us to unveil the life of women in Israel, much as we have with women in Sudan with Lubna Ahmed Hussein and Chansa Kabwela in Zambia.

How liberated are the women of Israel, compared to other women in the Middle East? Consider the question front and center in our minds. The digging has begun.

Forgetting Golda Meir for a moment, what is life like for most women in Israel? In supporting Netanyahu and the settlers —  rather than supporting enlightened women like Tzipi Livni — what policies are people supporting for women?
