OK: back to werk!
Where was I, oh yeah:

Camille Paglia: Sexual Personae

It is essentially a rollicking feast of Western art and literary criticism taken in through Paglia's erudite and highly detailed gender lens. Remember that movie about Henry Miller and Anaïs Nin, where they're all sitting at a table in France preparing to eat a soufflé and he just reaches over to the steaming dish with his fork, peremptorily stabbing the rich mushroom shaped lid and slapping the entire thing on his plate? That's what it's like to read her; extremely rich and probably a little overwrought for most palates, but what the hell.

Here's one of the more tame excerpts from the intro Birth of the Western Eye, a treatment which is completely on-topic, which helps to shine a little light on how she deconstructs feminist thought (if I read any of the primary text, it would probably sink or bewilder for want of context):

Though woman was at the center of early symbolism, real women were powerless. A fantasy dogging feminist writing is that there was once a peaceable matriarchy overthrown by warmongering men, founders of patriarchal society. The idea began with Bachofen in the 19th century and was adopted by Jane Harrison, that great scholar's one error. Not a shred of evidence supports the existence of matriarchy anywhere in the world at any time. Political rule by women, must not be confused with matrilineage, passive transmission of property or authority through the female side. The matriarchy hypothesis, revived by American feminism, continues to flourish outside the University.

There's plenty in there which would be much more germane to the struggle represented in this thread. It's 700 pages long and I got a bunch of stuff tabbed, but it's been 20 years since I read it, so it might be hard to pull out anything cogent. Her arguments comprise very long strings.

"Locker, if you are going to post your ex's, it's only fair that you also post pics of how they look now"...

The picture of my SECOND X is current...

As to how I looked when I was YOUNGER???...

BETTER, of course!!!...

;-)


As to my first wife and her current looks???...

Not so GUD...

Third wife currently???...

Can you say, "GOODYEAR BLIMP"???...




But I posted the photo's to make an OBVIOUS point...

which is, Terrie is NOT my "TYPE"...

So NEVER would I have hit on her and that is a simple FACT...

What she wrote is either some weird fuked up memory...

or a flat out LIE as it NEVER happened for reasons already pointed out...

Mind you ALL...

I am NOT saying ANYTHING about Terries looks as "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"...

For clairification, ALL I am saying is she IS NOT, my "TYPE", thus I WOULD NOT, "Hit" on her...

To whomever you are:

"Cosmic, Locker, Philo, don't feel bad. You are not alone.

The sad truth about Terrie is that she has had a number of pissing contests with various people on climbing forums, and in real life, for years. They almost always revolve around her being set off by a perceived offense. She seems to be offended easily and often, particularly by men.

Although she carefully cultivates an online persona, a facade, of civility and equanimity, what lies just a layer or two beneath is a very different story, as revealed by these recurring meltdowns.

Terrie, I don't say these things to bring any pain to you. Clearly events in your life have caused you a great deal of pain already, and I wish you no more. I am saying this publicly here to encourage you to become more circumspect. To think and reflect before you speak ill of people both on and offline.

As you will no doubt point out in an attempt to discredit my remarks, I am entirely anonymous under this moniker, veritas.curat. This is by design so you don't haunt me and trash me both online and off over the coming years, as I have seen you do to others over the last decade."

THANK YOU!!!...
