Are we Being bombarded by feminism ?
Am I allowed to say this ? Is it ok that I use a phallic Icon to do so ?
This Appropriated image i did whilst thinking about our culture and oppression in all forms , could and will , “ probably “ , make people think I am misogynistic. But nothing could be further from the truth .
I have chosen the dildo as a symbolic reference to a womans power and a satirical view to how they don’t really need us or should not even be made to feel like they need us in the first place . A powerful tool * 3 but now reversed and in the hands of the opposite gender. An icon in the fight against all forms of oppression .
My purpose was to show how I feel about this “bombardment” and express the power that women already have and should feel and where it could lead . I agree that all forms of oppression are wrong and that by displaying and making certain points people shouldn’t be pressurized into feeling like they are doing something amiss , or cant make a point due to worrying about condemnation of their views . Any form of silencing
opinions or habits , in any way shape or form , of an individual , is oppressive in itself , and shouldn’t be allowed as part of an evolved intelligent society . The fact that people should be afraid of having their opinions heard is just as bad as what women felt about their servility before artists like Freda kahlo or Breton started making their points known . It doesn’t mean I am not agreeing to feminism but only making a statement about my beliefs which I regard as true . This is what I intend to make the viewer think .
I don’t use this image in a negative way but as a powerful representation of what women and society strives for , but at the same time how it shouldn’t be an issue but has been made to be by the very * 4 culture that ignorantly developed it through lack of understanding or maybe instinctual habits . Opposites attract , without a submissive and dominant structure will society be better or worse ?
I feel that everything we know is created by our own minds as acceptable or not , according to rules set by who is in power ( government ) . Obviously there is a line , which I think is clearly-set , and we shouldn’t cross it . But we create good and evil , angelic or devilish approaches to what we deem right or wrong in the first place . Some of which were once thought of ( or not so much ) to be right are now proved to wrong through our understanding over time . But others yet to be brought to the surface such as being ashamed of certain thoughts on how we view what is only a natural part of our bodies is downright stupid . A penis or vagina should not be thought of as a dirty word or rude object , it should be embraced and shown in a new light . But we are still a long way from achieving these goals that our recently derived methods and understanding of cultural mistakes , seek to rectify, because really we are only just starting to awaken to them on a global scale
We should avoid the very causal root that created these concepts in the first place by having masterful forethought to seek notions that will affect our future so we don’t have these dilemmas in the first place . If culture says its wrong people will feel that it is so .
I feel that a man wouldn’t be bothered if a female ejaculated on their face because its what they would want….? * 2 but a pro-feminist woman would probably think its wrong to have a male ejaculate on theirs because they would look at him from a submissive angle , as if he thinks he is superior and is looking at them as a sexual gratification tool . Its how you feel and see yourself that matters , *how society has told you to feel or how your genetics , biology , nurture and hormone levels makes you react to circumstance .
Its all about how powerful you feel .
Make love not war .We are going through an era of feminism with a fight against all forms of oppression through a need for equality and a conatus for universal power .
* 1 But really it’s a “ state of mind “ forced upon us by powerful selfishly hellbent alphas and then copied by sheepish admirers whom I prefer to call “ Parasitic bootlickers “ . You can be whatever you want and believe . Or can you if all around you role-models , people , history and literature is telling you different !
I understand that women feel like they have been subjugated unfairly from a males perspective and feel inferior because as in Martha roslers semi-otics of the kitchen she thought about the role of women in a domestic space and used Parody and humour to express the anger and frustration at how she was put in the kitchen to be making food and cooking for her husband .
This is quite clear , but Its not a feminist problem . It lies in the pyramid like power structure that is apparent in all forms of society and I don’t believe we are able to rectify it fully as we will always need leaders and there will always be people who regard themselves better than the next man . Ego and pride are powerful emotions . which become more self- delusional the better you think you are .
I know we need leaders and strong people …. but would it be better to have a million strong leaders instead of just one ? If everyone is deemed equal who will lead us ? Is it safe to have an idea of true equality ?
Art can correct this and make our views known to a wider audience and promote change .
Do not be scared of voicing your opinions .
This is a second but more comedic take on what the future may be if feminism is taken to its extreme and made oppressive itself .
Hell has no fury than a women scorned
This is a supply drop for survival in a post feminist era where there are no births but only genetically cloned babies to further the human race . Man is all but extinct ( Only Robbie williams or brad pitt look-alikes are kept imprisoned and isolated for their Sperm ) due to being devolved and homosexualised by a nazi-like pure feminist race who was only intent on his destruction . Estosterone (A similar Testosterone derivative ( some would argue its exactly the same )) is sold as espresso in coffee shops and The world is now governed by butch feminists who are realising it was all about wanting a penis they can’t live without us and want us back to correct all the discord ,( they have artificially grown phallus’s ?? ) but it is too late , thus there are dildo supply drops in the worst affected areas to stop riots and mass chaos .
I think what has to be watched out for is that the people fighting for every ist and ism at the extreme ends of their spectrum don’t take it too far and get silly as a type of leverage tool and a form of revenge

“TESTOSTERONE POISONING: … ‘Until now it has been that the level of testosterone in men is normal simply because they have it. But if you consider how abnormal their behavior is, then you are led to the hypothesis that almost all men are suffering from ‘testosterone poisoning.'”
from A Feminist Dictionary”, ed. Kramarae and Treichler, Pandora Press, 1985
