Thank The Lorde

 

In a world of Kendall and Kylie Jenner it’s so freaking refreshing that Lorde exists. Lorde sings that song ‘Royals’ and she is the same age as Kylie Jenner. Kylie Jenner…um…posts a lot of pictures of her boobs on her instagram, her sister is a porn star, and her family has a reality show…not sure what she does. OH WAIT! She models. That’s right…she models with her sister…for a clothing line.

Lorde has a hit song/album and has this to say:

On her love of mainstream pop music:

“It’s magical. Why is it shameful to like this music, or write this music?”

But does she want to work with David Guetta?

“No. F— no. He’s so gross.”

On the accusations that her song “Royals” is racist:

“I mean, I was 15 when I wrote that song. I wasn’t thinking about anyone’s cultural aspirations. I was being a bit silly. I don’t know. I can understand [the response] now, and it’s probably not my place to even comment on it. It’s just one of those kind of uncomfortable grey areas.”

Is she a feminist?

“Absolutely. Wholeheartedly. I think women who say, ‘No, I’m not a feminist — I love men,’ I think that is just… You don’t know what it means. You think it means that, ‘I don’t shave under my arms, I burn my bras. F— men!’ How could you be so uneducated, and so unwilling to learn about something which is so important to you?”

On being outspoken:

“You’re never going to appeal to everyone. You might as well have some sort of belief system.”

I love her. She’s calling people gross, she’s standing up for her creativity and she’s admitting she’s a feminist and she understands that doesn’t mean you hate men. Thank you Universe for Lorde!

Life Isn’t Like Mad Men

I love ‘Mad Men’. Not as of late. I feel that Don Draper is really predictable and not the complicated existential dilemma he should be. But Joan, Peggy, even Betty…I’m a big fan of the 1950’s style. In fact my style icons are Hepburn (Audrey not Katherine), Monroe, Bardot. Women of the 50’s just knew how to look.

Having said that I would never say “I love the 1950’s” or “I wish I had been born in the 1950’s” My heart isn’t even there. Great style and movies sure, but what a horrible time! I didn’t realize this until today…but it really bothers me when women say things like that. “Oh, I wish it were back in the 50’s” NO YOU DO NOT! It ain’t all Mad Men. You would not be “the Joan”. You would be “the Megan”.

I don’t know why we forget how horrible it was for women. If you were beaten, you dealt with it. It was probably your fault. You want to work? How are you going to get dinner on the table by 5 and mind the children you have to have? You have an opinion? No you don’t. Why? WHY would women ever think they would enjoy that?

Women have it pretty rough in 2013, imagine what it was like in 1953. These recent protests of women taking to the street telling the government to get out of their vagina? Well, only sluts would need abortions and only indecent women would talk about or support it. It’s best you die in a back alley from a botched hanger job. Really, women…get it the F together. A pretty dress and nice handbag does not mean a good life.

Yes, I’m Still Pissed At Robin Thicke

In case you’ve forgotten…the rapey-ist song ever is still at the top of the charts. Oh, and the douche that sings it was recently pictured putting his hand so far up a girl’s dress, while being photographed with her, that it looked like a proctology exam–I don’t think he asked before he did that.

But Mr. Thicke can get away with anything. He can get away with demeaning women and tweeting about it. He can say this song is a “feminist movement in itself” (yeah he said that), he can man handle women, he can blow smoke in their faces, he can parade them around naked and no one says “boo” because women are objects. Women are to be treated as toys. Women are to be demeaned. Women are to be tortured. Women are made to be taken advantage of. Right? Because that is what we are saying when we turn up “Blurred Lines” and allow Robin Thicke to make millions by turning what rapist tell their victims into “catchy lyrics”.

On the left side of this photo are the lyrics to “Blurred Lines” on the right are photos of rape victims holding up the words their rapists said to them as they violated them. Nice work Mr. Thicke…great job people of America for putting this at #1 with a bullet.

False Prophets

Julie Bindel speaks at numerous conferences about female victims rights. I’m not a big fan of Bindel after she said, ““I don’t have a problem with men disposing of their genitals, but it does not make them women, in the same way that shoving a bit of vacuum hose down your 501s does not make you a man” in 2004.

Right there I’ve stopped caring about your stance because you’re a fraud in my opinion. You cannot argue victims rights and deny a medical condition. Clearly, you’re not really interested in ‘abuse victim’s rights” you are interested in the right victim’s rights.

Having said that…I was interested in her once again when I read an article that stated she pulled out of a speaking engagement due to ‘rape and murder threats’.

It is scary to receive these kinds of things. I’m aware of that. I get that. I find it cowardly to pull out of an event because of it. I can’t imagine how many threats the President gets, or the Queen, or any other person in a position that has an undesirable opinion. They still showed up.

She pulled out of an event because she’s a coward. She picked on the transgender
community because they’re an easy target. She is not a role model. She is not someone I want discussing victims rights. She just made herself a victim. “Oh I can’t speak on this because I’m afraid the thing I stand against will happen to me.”

Give me a break.

I can’t decide if I’m more disgusted by her reaction to the threats or that human beings still use this as a threat. “Show up here and I’m gonna rape you” who the F writes that? Who can sleep after they say that? What kind of deplorable human does that?

What is wrong with people? I’m getting really jaded and disillusioned with the human race. Why do we still think that because you can overpower someone physically you have the right to torture them mentally? Bindel should’ve seen those threats for what they really were–a cowardly cry. Instead of pulling back the curtain and showing the little man working the levers she gave power to the threats. Shame…shame all around.
