Women and Feminism Week: Femen to Playboy

Hi, it’s Grey Greyvara, social conscience at the Greenygrey, listening to Nirvana’s Nevermind on a Seattlish weather Monday morning in Blighty after an L.A.ish weather weekend. As regular readers will know, the Greenygrey was formed with a www ethos: wolves, women and working-class; inspired by a mixture of animal welfare, humanitarianism, environmentalism and socialism.

Feminism with a Sense of Humour

And because it’s done seriously elsewhere in the media, we try to add a little comedy to it. In this respect, the y of comedy is the y linking opposing arguments in the Greenygrey; or the different kinds of feminist movements.

I think that while the Victorian-style feminists could be classed as the grey, the nude n’ proud feminists would be the green.

Ethical-Hefnerist Feminism for Men

Most men like women; unless or until they have a very bad experience with them, and vice-versa; but wouldn’t think of themselves as feminists because it conjures up images of men-hating radicals.

Perhaps the best example of a woman-loving man is Hugh Hefner, who lives with dozens of beautiful women in the Playboy Mansion. Which we’ve just noticed in the accompanying photo can look greenygrey great!

While nobody forces the women to live there, and it’s a dream for many women who apply to live and work there, the mansion does seem a little like a workplace.

We might be ending our hopes of an invite to the Playboy Mansion, but we believe in wilderness freedom, so as the social conscience of the Greenygrey I believe the chicks should be more free-range.

We also don’t believe in unnecessary cosmetic surgery, so believe the Playboy Mansion should be more organic.

Lads Mags Sexy Humour and Feminist Talibannies 

FEMEN demonstration in Kiev.

As we campaigned against the grooming, raping and prostituting of poor and vulnerable girls for ten years while ‘militant feminists’ in the U.K. kept quiet about it (apart from Ann Cryer if she counts as a militant feminist?), or even tried to keep it quiet and censored as part of the fascist ‘Unite Against Fascism’ we think a little politically incorrect humour should be okay.

But the militant feminist movement seems to have woken up now, with lads mags and glamour models the easy traditional target. While some feminist movements, like Ukraine’s Femen, believe women should have the right to show their bodies any way they want, the British feminist movement seems allied with the Taliban in wanting women covered up.

More women talk this week, and plenty of Hefnerist feminism in Marc Latham’s books on Smashwords and Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/author/marclatham).

Celebrity Big Brother (Alpha Werewolf) Looks Good This Year

Hi it’s Green.  Although Grey and I had a great time in Celebrity Big Brother Alpha Werewolf, and won thanks to your kind votes, I kind of wished we’d done it this year.

That’s because there’s a really nice pair of twins in, and you know, me and Grey are like twins (although not identical like them), so I think we’d have really got on well.

And we’ve got even more in common, because like our initials are GG, theirs are KK: Kristina and Karissa Shannon.

And our ol’ pal Marc Latham was just saying in a recent poem on fmpoetry that the Playboy Mansion would be somewhere he’d like to live, and they used to live there.

Having so much in common, we’d have so much to talk about…

Jim Morrison Documentary Opens Doors of Poetry Perception into 2012

English: Crossroads

Marc Latham’s latest fm poem was written on New Year’s Day while listening to the BBC Radio programme: Suzi Quatro in Search of Jim Morrison, (http://www.bbc.co.uk/i/b018b6gj/) which is available in the UK until 10:02PM Wed, 4 Jan 2012.  Don’t know if it’s available anywhere else.
The poem is about two very different kinds of lifestyle either side of a warm, dry and comfortable contented reality.  One of the alternative bipolar lives would be of pampered luxury in a pleasure palace and the other a rough living hitch-hiking hobo.
Contented Living, Contents of Dreaming
playboy mansion
is where I’d like to be
surrounded by women
all sweet as honey
roof under rain, wall in want
the long winding air
flying catapult kingdom
calls my mind on the wind
sunshine freedom
