Women, Stop your Whining.

Whilst a mature student at art college I was once accused of objectifying the female body by the vanguard of the feminist elite. If they had bothered to learn their art history it would have saved them the time and effort involved in defacing, stealing, and putting a great deal of industry in trying to get my work censored.

I have two observations on the objectification of the human form.

 If you have not at some point during the act objectified your partners body you are probably doing it incorrectly, or at the very least without the appropriate level of physical passion. Between you and me, when I’m banging away on the vinegar stroke I’m not going through your resume or considering your fine personality.

Men at times for purely prurient reasons objectify the female body, and yes the results can be tragic, however when the male body is objectified the result is often a young man coming home to his family in a body bag from a foreign land.


About bigsyrb

I am creative and artistic but live in the real world. I possess compassion, charity, and nobility when required. My education is as eclectic as my prose. I have travelled the world and remember Mount Kilimanjaro when it had snow on its peak. I can gently remove the stitches from a sleeping child’s forehead to save him the trauma of a return visit to the ER, and I can outrun a hippo when the occasion calls for it. I love and respect my parents; I love and respect my children, I love and respect myself. I believe in true women’s emancipation, and Germaine Greer is a fraud. Ethics, honesty, and integrity are at their best when no one is looking. I have good teeth; and in my view attractive feet. A bowl of thin cold gruel takes on prodigious gastronomic proportions when you haven’t eaten in ten years, and takeout somehow leaves you hungry. I am looking to fulfill a need and will search to the end of my days if need be. Last book read, Conrad Black, A Matter of Principle. My favorite authors; D.H.Lawrence, Susan Sontag, Darwin, W.Somerset Maugham, Stephen Pinker. The next book I read will be The Corrections, by Jonathan Franzen. My last three sculptures, Ayatollah Khomeini, Dead Horse, an English Coalman, working on many more. A neophile by nature who believes unconditional love is a hostage situation. My sense of humor never lets me down in this sometimes painful world and I don't blow away in a light storm.
