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

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).
