Sunday Soul – Post Paglian Feminist Love Object – October 7th 2012

” Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims. But stereotypes are the west’s stunning sexual personae, the vehicles of art’s assault against nature. The moment there is imagination, there is myth. “

  1. Sunshine:

    Just a heads up:

    I will be starting off this transmission at 7:30pm pacific time this sunday.
    I plan to play a recording of Camille Paglia’s 92 minute lecture from earlier this year in its entirety before we begin the musical mosaic of the evening.

    This is not a warning not to listen, but an opportunity for you to grow and learn more about where this theme is coming from, and why I would choose such a curious theme for a sunday night dance program.

    The music should begin as planned right about 9pm pacific | 12 midnight eastern time | 5am Greenwich

    Contrarian academic, Camille Paglia, once wrote in the New York Times Opinion column in 1990

    “Madonna is the true feminist. She exposes the puritanism and suffocating ideology of American feminism, which is stuck in an adolescent whining mode. Madonna has taught young women to be fully female and sexual while still exercising total control over their lives. She shows girls how to be attractive, sensual, energetic, ambitious, aggressive and funny — all at the same time.

    American feminism has a man problem. The beaming Betty Crockers, hangdog dowdies and parochial prudes who call themselves feminists want men to be like women. They fear and despise the masculine. The academic feminists think their nerdy bookworm husbands are the ideal model of human manhood.

    But Madonna loves real men. She sees the beauty of masculinity, in all its rough vigor and sweaty athletic perfection. She also admires the men who are actually like women: transsexuals and flamboyant drag queens, the heroes of the 1969 Stonewall rebellion, which started the gay liberation movement.”

    In 1990 that was a mighty mouthful wasn’t it? You’ll notice however I didn’t drop a single Madonna track in my transmission this evening. Actually, despite my deep admiration for Camille Paglia I still don’t agree with her.

    Paglia is an American author, teacher, and social critic. Paglia, a self-described dissident feminist, has been a professor at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania since 1984. She wrote Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson (1990), a best-selling work of literary criticism, among other books and essays. She wrote her seminal work ‘Sexual Parsonae’ in the early 80’s but it took nearly a decade for her to get it published. Once she did a wave of change had already begun to sweep across the world.

    I’m in agreement that we need to be sexual, and use sex as a topic of conversation, a healthy form of communication, expression, stress relief, and loving activity. I am pro sex. I also absolutely believe that the inventor of the mini skirt was a man. I also believe that a person’s sexuality, who they are, how they choose to love themselves, present themselves, an express themselves is one of the finest aspects of the human experience. As for the nay sayers, well… it’s pretty obvious that the back water preachers who are always talking about “homosexuals” and “sodomy” only have one thing on their minds (and it isn’t God.) There’s no point in arguing with the solipsistic and the closeted, they aren’t being honest and so there’s nowhere to go from nowhere. These people need our love and patience (and at times a restraining order.) But then you’ll notice that I didn’t bring my audacious track “around and around” to this transmission either. I didn’t lick you once, nor express my sexual frustration, nor eek a word of my desire for you. Rather I played an extended set of contradictions while still juxtaposing the ideas that classic house, modern electronic music, electro, pop and music which only fits into the “other” category can thrive together at any tempo in a mosaic we call “house music” — yes, nearly 30 years later I am still holding up my torch to the warehouse and the garage where all music was welcome in our house, as long as it moved us (be that in the head, the ass, or the heart.)

    So the fall out from Paglian thinking is that the audience is entirely overestimated. Now a woman is walking down the street with a little vomit in the corner of her mouth, wearing almost nothing, angry and harsh, cock sure that all you want is some pussy. If this were an anarchist from 1925 or 1977 it would make a lot more sense than it does today. The post Paglian Feminist anti-feminist has set all of back at least 50 years in terms of our autonomy and our equality. The woman as object is a fraud perpetrated by genderless corporations run by genderless boards where the equality game is a man’s game. Stripped of gender, neutrality means the formal He in a pant suit and precious little makeup. This board sells makeup, dildos, tits and ass to the masses. We buy their products, wrap ourselves up in them and declare our freedom. It’s a sad activity without the conscious thinking behind it. The modern street feminist makes Amy Winehouse’s chosen self destruction look more revolutionary to me.

    I wanted, as gently as I could, to point this out with music, and with thoughtfully spare words, and whisper into your beautiful ear that the Goddess is here, and so are the Gods. You are the world’s most precious creation. I love you (it seems most of the time a good deal more than you do.) As patronizing and lame as that sounds, I wanted you to know that we are all here together in this world, struggling and striving for meaning, purpose, love and security. Fear makes a terrible deity, and maybe only money makes a worse one. So if you can, grab yourself a copy of Sexual Pesonae and give it a long hard read. Come to terms with your beauty, and your magnificent power. Boys and girls are so beautiful. I want you to understand how to use these potent love weapons. I want you to know who you are. And in spite of all that many of us are still standing on any street corner wondering what love even is, let alone how to give it, and where to put it when we are overcome by it.

    And so my sweet post paglian feminist love objects, the most powerful thing that Camille Paglia has said or written which truly reached me here at Treehouse HQ is that while we are a generation who is savy, smart and sharp, we know nothing. We have no myth, no allegory, no religion, no history. And as an atheist in defense of religion, as well as a female in critique of feminism Camille Paglia at her most candid is a voice which bares consideration and attention.
