Katie Rees, the now former Miss Nevada USA,said yesterday
that her breast-licking, thong-flashing pictures online were just a youthful mistake - but a pal who was a witness to the display said it wasn't the first time.
Though these pictures are nothing you haven't seen in Playboy, Penthous, etc. for years, and years, and.....Miss Nevada: Completely Uncensored and Filled with Scandal
This is the vigin whore dichotomy of patriarchy.
I am the honored one and the scorned one
I am the whore and the holy one
I am the wife and the virgin
I am the barren one and many are my daughters
I am the silence that is incomprehensible
I am the utterance of my name.
Thunder Perfect Mind.
They want women to be both, but only accept the virgin. Its the classic case of don't ask, don't tell. Thus subjecting women to being sexually objectivfied but not accepting them as sexually active, thus individuals taking responsibilty for their lives, because of the social construct of chastity, virginity, purity etc.etc.denies individual responsibility. It is a social role, versus subjective reality. It reduces women to dolls, pre-pubescence run amok.
Donald Trump judging Miss America on the question of moral values, well kettle pot black. "Left the first wife, had an affair, left the second wife, had an affair. Had kids both times, but he's the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America," O'Donnell said to roars of audience laughter.
His moral compass points to bottomline, is she good for business or not, and that's what saved her ass.
She may have been the Whore of Babylon but thanks to modern psychological therapy she can be restored to her Sacred Virgin Self.
Beauty pagents sell sexuality, but as pure clean and untouchable, unreal views of women, that same objectifcation which we experience in the museum. Look don't touch.
Real women of course are their own person, subject to their own decisions, they are not objects. Thus they are a threat to the social construct of sacred purity.
If they have a sexuality it is as 'youthfulness' not inccocence, which is the image created by the patriarchical Model and Beauty Pagent industry. It creates reproducible models that have no identity from the mass of other statues in their musuem of pop culture.
It is a pecularity of the patriarchical fashion industry that because it is dominated by gay men the models tend to take on an androgynous waif look of late.
But giving credit where credit is due, Marc Jacobs’ highly acclaimed tour de force on the first formal day of New York Fashion Week would indeed set the stage for much of what would follow internationally and, in many ways, set the standard for the layered, sophisticated, urban ‘waif’ look,
Whether gay or straight the patriarchical construct of women remains the same, hypocritical.
And by having written this, like my piece on Britney Spears, this is bound to get my blog lots of hits because everyone loves sleaze and gossip. The world really is a village.
