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).

Greenygrey Saves England Win and Nervy Finish

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams again. Phew, I’m glad there’s a break in the Euro 2012 action for a couple of days, because I feel as tired as the players look! You may be wondering how the greenygrey saved England last night after Joe Hart was forced to wear red in line with the second kit; and not the greenygreyesque first choice goalie’s kit, which we’re sure he prefers.

Greenygrey Metaphysical Karma Saves England

No, while most greenygrey interest during Euro 2012 has been in the goalie kits, last night it was the greenygrey dualism Yin and Yang karma style ‘what goes around comes around’ that helped England win.

That is because Frank Lampard had a perfectly good goal not given against Germany in the last World Cup, which would have given England a chance, and could have changed the game, before German eventually won easily.

So, it could be said that last night’s Ukraine goal that wasn’t given was a kind of greenygrey karma, and that’s how the Greenygrey helped England to a crucial win.

P.S. Not forgetting the greenygrey Roy Hodgson statue as well of course.

Madonna of Werewolves: Four Years as a Famous Werewolf

Hi, it’s Andy Wolfhol. You know, I was famous a long time ago, and still am, so I like to think the Greenygrey learnt something from me. But I was watching a recent Madonna interview, and I think there are similarities with her too; in the way the Greenygrey has been able to reinvent itself when needed. I suppose their chameleonising talent comes in handy there.

Being Human for our Birthday

That Being Human werewolf got quite famous, but it was only two-dimensional, and couldn’t escape being typecast after a couple of series. It was a good actor, but not as good looking in its wolf form as the Greenygrey.

Why, it’s been four years now since the Greenygrey website launched GG into the human world. Since before the Beijing Olympics and Euro 2008 in Austria and Switzerland. This year it’ll be the London Olympics and Euro 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.

Yes, time flies when you’re a bird, as the Greenygrey often was thanks to its shapeshifting skill. It’s been quite a journey, and thanks to all those  who’ve made it worthwhile.
