Women the Real Victims in Multicultural Fascism UK… and Wild Birds…

Maybe this article was inspired by my posts over the weekend. Don’t know, but hope so!

Sharp Rise in UK Femicide

As well as hundreds or thousands more groomed and raped, the article says:

‘More than 130 women were killed by men in 2017, with two in five cases involving excessive violence, a “harrowing” report has found.

Campaigning MP Jess Phillips has called the murder of women “an epidemic” in the wake of the latest Femicide Census and urged Prime Minister Theresa May to address the issue in “long overdue” legislation to tackle domestic abuse.

The report, drawn up by Women’s Aid, shows a rise in the number of killings from 2016, when there were 113, and 2015, when there were 119.’

Wild Birds Deliberately Killed

In more bad news, it’s emerged in this MSN article the UK authorities are also deliberately killing off wild bird populations; I’d thought declining numbers are an indirect result of humanity, but it appears the problem also has an intentional factor!

On a brighter note, I’ve updated the mistYmuse news in this Midwinter  Solstice week with some new acronym gifts on this site’s sister site, travel25years.wordpress.com.

 

Mirror Poem Celebrates Wonderful Women and Wacky Wolves

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem started its incubation on January 28th, when Chris Packham’s Inside The Animal Mind highlighted a wolf’s sense of smell by showing that it loves strong scents such as Chanel. Then this week Grado visited Nicky Clarke’s salon in a documentary about Glasgow’s Insane Fight Club wrestling shows, and had his hair coloured by the lovely Rebecca Rock. The two halves of the Folding Mirror were put in place. Here’s the poem:

Women and Wolves, Different ways Delectable

perfume in air
way you wear
feminine essence
flowing sun hair
smiling eyes
a graceful touch
oozing strength
to be yourself

good humoured woman, wolves love scent

swimming in chanel
rolling euphoria
one shaggy sight
laughing mouth
full coated fur
natural exuberance
lights up life
paws upside down

Women and Feminism: Hair Nice n’ Natural not Sexy

Hi, it’s Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno, fashion expert at the Greenygrey. Women and feminism week is drawing to a close here, so I think it’s about time we had a little fashion discussion about what looks good, nice and sexy.

Hair looks Nice and Natural

This week we’ve featured a lot of blonde women, and that’s because blonde hair can brighten a greenygrey day.

However, at the Greenygrey we believe hair looks nice and natural, not sexy, so there’s no need to cover it unless there’s a weather-related reason or bad hair day.

I don’t think this looks sexy or nice:

This doesn’t look sexy, but looks nice:

Natural Hair and Designer Vanity: a Socialist Perspective

At the Greenygrey we believe there is nothing vain about showing your natural self; and that it is much less vain than buying expensive designer scarves to hide it.

When women are forced to hide their hair and other natural qualities, and it is supported by the matriarchs of those societies, it seems to me like the rich and powerful hiding the qualities of the poor and beautiful; making the quality and prestige of headgear more important in terms of attractiveness than natural hair.

As my hair is now grey and past its best, I could call for all werewolves to cover their hair, because with my fantastic fashion sense I’d then be able to look better than all the other werewolves. But I wouldn’t put such a cunning plan into practise.

Blondie’s Debbie Harry: Adopted Child Cultural Legend

Hi, it’s Wachel Wiley-Coyote, numbers expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full MoonIt’s women and feminism week at the Greenygrey, and I think there’s few better examples of female role models who’ve struggled through juvenile adversity to legendary status than Debbie Harry of Blondie.

I think I can relate a little to DebThe show in which two contestants engage in a battle of wits, competing against the clock in games of lexical dexterity and numerical agilitybie Harry after my human parallel Rachel Riley was criticised for her short skirts early in her Countdown career.

Tough Childhood to Blondie Success

Debbie Harry was adopted. After graduating college with an Arts degree she struggled through her early singing career with jobs ranging from a BBC Radio secretary to a Playboy Bunny.

After singing in a few bands she found success with Blondie, fronting a band completed with four male musicians. Debbie was of course considered the leader and main focal point of the band.

Harry mixed a cool singing persona with punk fashion and dancing to capture the attention and admiration of both men and women.

Debbie Harry and Chris Stein

Although Harry’s onstage behaviour and dress might have brought disapproval by some people, she had an exemplary long-term relationship with bandmate Chris Stein. 

This included Blondie taking a break for an extended period of time at the height of their success as Harry cared for Stein when he began suffering from the blistering autoimmune disease pemphigus.

Blondie Continue to Rock n’ Roll

Blondie never regained their late 1970s heyday, but have continued to record and tour, and have had several successful records in recent years.

Debbie Harry continues to be an icon for the late 1970s generation, symbolising that time of exciting punk and new wave musical acts. And now she is an example of leading a good and successful life after overcoming early adversity.

I wonder if the late-1970s men generation would like and love women as much today without Debbie Harry?
