What the f*** is really wrong with these people's minds?

What the hell is this and how the hell can this reach publication. Freedom of speech?? No, outright racial stereotyping, hatred and it is NOT okay. What the f***?? It's not even funny that's the thing. It is so not funny. The president as a "chimpanzee", furthermore an allusion to the unwarranted police violence against African-American males in the U.S. This is so f***ing lame, it's incredible. Anyhow. Further proof that much work still requires to be done eradicate the racism. A post-racial America is still lightyears away.

A Real Shocker: Anti-Feminists in the Christian Body

I've been getting quite a few of those lately but this oh this is something else. A group of avid Christian film-makers who have compiled a documentary exposing the many ills and misguided mindsets that the feminist movement has supposedly spilled over the fabric of modern-day society. The shocker itself

Now I have a problem with Christians using the Bible to propagate anti-feminist messages. A big problem. This is no different to using the Bible to justify the racial superiority of the white race. What kind of insanity is this?
I have not seen the documentary in full but from the preview available on the website as well as images of women that have dominated politics and transcended to positions of power chiefly held by men posted against the torrid title of the project: The Monstrous Regime (obviously alluding to the Feminist Movement/Women's Lib).

I of course completely dismiss traditional gender roles as much as a refrain (for obvious reasons) from accepting the notion that members of each ethnic group must be limited to play their historically-defined role in a society. Racial parity is as of much significance as gender parity. The idea of "extolling feminity; blasting feminism" is nothing more than preposterous. What makes me even more suspicious is that the film-makers who aptly identify themselves as the Gunn Brothers are men. How surprising! That a group of men (the knowledge that they are Christians should be seen as completely independent of their motivation to issue such a ludicrous piece of work) have gone all out to create a documentary-film that uses the Bible to bash feminists and portray them as being malicious and vile in their intentions.

Gloria Steinem would roll her eyes at this dismissively. It is plain to see how a couple of men, frustrated at the turn of events that have unfolded over the last half-century which has seen women liberated from silence and subservience, with the Bible at the ready scouring its holy pages for evidence to proclaim that women should have never been liberated in the first place. Using the Good Word to find further evidence of why women are apparently inferior knowing full well that even though they may not be able to reach those feminists who have abandoned organized religion for its emphasis on female subservience, weakness and inferiorty, they will certainly have the ears of all those women who remain loyal to God out of reverence for the Creator. How heinous, how sly, how repulsive. Can I wonder now why Christians are having a hard time winning souls when they stand strong for these kind of mindsets. Misconstrued scripture used to justify the violation of Human Rights.

I love God don't get me wrong. But there is something I love just as much: an inalienable right to be identified as an equal on the basis of just being human, damn it! C'mon!

A blog entry on defending privileg which is entirely pertinent to the above. The Gunn Brothers are simply defending their white male privilege and using the Bible in that. True sleaze.

Displays of "Normal Adolescent Behaviour" Quite Disturbing

So I had a watch of a movie called "Havoc 2: Normal Adolescent Behaviour" which chronicles the lives of six American Teens who have known each other since kindergarten entangled in a polyfildelitous relationship. Let's just say the fact that the world "normal" was utilized in the title is scary. Is this what teens are getting up to these days. I was shocked, sickened and completely intrigued all at once. These kids'll make you feel like a saint.
What saddened me most of all was the slackness and lack of reverence the pop culture these days attaches to sex. Obama made mention of this several times in The Audacity of Hope idenifying it as a major concern in the morality of the nation. That monogamous relationships are shunned for such arrangements. Although some would argue that if anything polyfidelity is a better option because it limits the probablity that one party will cheat. Sorry, that just sounds weak to me. What happened to self-discipline, respect. Maybe if these attributes as oppose to just intercourse itself were the focus, infidelity wouldn't be an issue in any monogamous relationship any case. Who then would have to find alternatives (and bizarre, terribly disturbing ones at that) such as this.
Oh! the world we live in.

M.I.A. an M.O.M.

At the Grammy's last week, M.I.A. made a sure impression with her eccentric looks. First with a royal blue frill of a dress which only exacerbated her preg. I gotta say though, the sneaks are intensely original. Nobody does it like Maya.

But it looks like she was out and about long before the Grammy's doing performances, showing up at events with her babydaddy uuuuuh...what's his name: Benjamin Brewer.

Performing at the xXx "Rock 'n Roll Diesel Circus" and alleging that she only put on a couple of pounds and wasn't really preg at the time. C'mon, who would be buying that story looking at this pic.

Yes I bit that from E! Entertainment's Daily 10 Report on Maya's birth story. She (as posted on her blog) gave birth to a baby boy on the night of the Grammy's how wonderful. There was nothing I enjoyed more about that show than seeing her on stage with T.I., Lil' Wayne, Jay and Kanye filling in the hook for Swagga Like Us A pregnant tum in tights and a polka-dot black top, donning white sneakers. See why I love her so much...who else would be gutsy and spunky enought to pull that off. She just fit right in with her swagga. Loved it!

Look at Lil' Wayne feeling up on that swollen belly...dope!

This is Maya World Domination I'm telling ya.

N.E.R.D. on the Recession

It occured to me a couple of days ago that since the news of the Wall Street Crash has been gaining much newsworthy attention, some musician was either going to mention it in one line of their songs or just write a whole damn song about it. Hey presto! On the morning of the day I have this thought I flick to MTV several hours later to see Pharrell, Chad and Shae singing a song called 'Sooner or Later' with a very aesthetic and clever-looking video set at the stock market in Wall Street. The song is impressive I must say. I like it. The Neptunes never go wrong.
