Pardon me, the Irish Republican Socialist Party.

[Heart in eyes]

Maybe I'll write later about the sexy minx I met yesterday at UMass Lowell who told me she was a member of the Irish Revolutionary Socialist Party and then pulled Pelling's The Origins of the Labour Party out of her backpack as, I don't know, some kind of substantiation.

More Blondie

Vive le Katniss!

Also, there were a couple of recent threads that I only paid passing attention to.

Didn't mean I wasn't furiously googling Christina Hoff Sommers and other prominent contemporary feminists, though.

Ran across this old article that I thought I'd share.

JSoc: Obama's secret assassins--The president has a clandestine network targeting a 'kill list' justified by secret laws. How is that different than a death squad? by Naomi Wolf

More on topic, with a fantasy novel, the big one that's always thrown around in fantasy rpg circles: LotR. Aragorn is the only character that could remotely be said to be defined by the women in his life. The ostensible main character, Frodo, has very little involvement with women whatsoever. Even Sam, the primary supporting hero, only interacts with a woman (as a victory prize) at the end.


All I want is a female character who can handle things herself...

Read Beren & Luthien from the Silmarillion.

You might need some caffeine, but it will dispel the notion that Tolkien doesn't pass this test.

But none of them make out with goblins.

A bit old, but I don't closely follow news from our fair neighbor to the North:

And, yes, she gave me all kindsa shocks.

I'd favorite the Psiglo because the first five minutes were pretty cool, but now the internet's acting up and I can't hear anymore.

Senior semi-formal, Jessica Mocle, parking lot, foggy windows, Neil Diamond. Need I say more?

Not a labor story, per se, but, good god, does Naomi Klein get me hot and bothered.

This one played a memorable role in my Senior year of high school

I would like to see more princesses making out with goblins in fantasy novels.

I am wrapping up Moby Dick. I didn't just read it straight through, but have set it aside occasionally to read some other things as well. I was not expecting so much overt homoeroticism. I think Ishmael is the most foppish seaman in the whale fleet.

No fears; I'm not picky.

Now started 'Zofroya, or the Moor', by Charlotte Dacre. Byron liked it, probably because of the interracial Lesbian/semi-Sadean elements that the blurb on the back alludes to, though seeing how those two themes blend will be interesting.

I read Marriage and Love by Emma Goldman this week,

Goin' all stream-of-consciousness, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, who probably rubbed shoulders with Emma back in the day, but I can't be sure, was once asked by a bourgeois journalist whether she believed in "Free Love" to which she replied, "As opposed to what? Slave love?"

Goblins do it in the streets!

I missed the exciting news about the arrival of wee little ones before.

I'm reading The Swords of Lankhmar in the second-volume of a two-volume semi-omnibus (no Knights and Knaves, so there will be no 55th sentence from page 55, I'm afraid.

In lieu of which:

"With a happy roaring shout that only he could hear, blood rushed through the Mouser's arteries toward his center, reviving his limp manhood in a mere moment, as a magically summoned genie offhandedly builds a tower."

The Free NH Goblin Resistance Compound is not terribly far from the Goffstown Women's Prison. I had been in the habit of saying "Hi, Pam!" when driving by. What a disappointment.

Ah, memories...

I was living in East Boston with two guys I knew from UMass Boston, Nazi Doodlebug* and Omar the Former Arab Terrorist. Nazi Doodlebug told me about how his friend, Lord Blackmoore, had been reduced to homelessness and needed somewhere to stay. I had already been burned by Lord Blackmoore, but I have a weakness for strays.

I got a call from Omar the FAT the other day. "I've got good news!" he exclaimed. "What, are you going to marry that girl from ol' Blighty that you met on the Council of Ex-Muslims website?" "No, no, it's better than that, you'll never guess."

So, a couple of days later, Omar and I finally get together. "Blackmoore's dead!" he says, with a big smile on his face--Omar always hated Lord Blackmoore--"And I've got a bottle of champagne!" "Man, that's harsh," I chided, but then Omar convinced me that Lord Blackmoore would have wanted us to drink to his death, although, probably, not in celebration. Turns out Nazi Doodlebug had been idly googling the internet and discovered an obit for him from last year.

Anyway, we spent the night reminiscing about all the crazy shiznit we used to do when we lived with Lord Blackmoore.

The story that Omar liked the most, which he hadn't heard before, was when Lord Blackmoore started dating a woman who taught hip-hop dance at the East Boston YWCA. They were both into kinky shiznit, and, one night, Lord Blackmoore entreated me to film them having sex.

I refused. Not because of any prudery on my part, but because I had absolutely no interest in seeing him and his woman rut. He got angry and tried three or four different arguments to get me to comply. I told Omar one of the lines and he immediately posted it on Facebook as his virtual tribute to Lord Blackmoore. I'll get back to that in a second, but, later that week, after I had refused, I woke up one morning and found the refrigerator covered in Polaroids of his girlfriend performing fellatio on him.

Anyway, the line that Omar loved so much was, I think, the second or third line of argument that Lord Blackmoore employed to try and persuade me to play Director of Photography:

"What?!? You think you're a Bohemian and you won't even film me having sex with my girlfriend?!?"

Apparently, there is a theory, true or not I couldn't say, that the ritual of the honeymoon comes bride kidnapping.

You pinkskins really are disgusting.

What I have heard is that the honeymoon is from the new couple being given a barrel of mead and sent away so that any child born was guaranteed to be the husband's.

The story that I heard, from a guy who was looking it up on the internet, so you know it must be true, was that the honeymoon was a vestige of kidnapping your wife and bringing her back after she was pregnant and there was nothing her family could do.

Like I said, though, I couldn't say.

The good news is that there is a Vice News article about D&D in my Facebook feed.

The bad news is, well,

#NotAllRolePlayers: A History of Rapey Dungeon Masters

You know, I don't know what's wrong with me. I don't know why I can never accentuate the positive, why I am always drawn to the worst, ugliest aspects of you disgusting pinkskins.

But in my spare time from acting as a propagandist for Hamas, Putin, and international proletarian socialist revolution, I've been doing some disturbing reading on wikipedia.

Bride kidnapping

Apparently, there is a theory, true or not I couldn't say, that the ritual of the honeymoon comes bride kidnapping.

You pinkskins really are disgusting.

Woops. Jacobin was sued by Catherine Brennan, not Julian Vigo.

I can't say that I am extremely well-versed in trans issues, but there has been a spat between some radical feminists and trans activists for a while now.

And now, for your delectation: radical feminists vs. trans activists.

Transcending the Norms of Gender: The Left Hand of Darkness by JULIAN VIGO

A Trans Response to Julian Vigo: These Are Not the Radicals You’re Looking For by DORIAN ADAMS

I didn't even bother to read them because I'm not a feminist, but I also remember there also being a flap with Julian Vigo suing Jacobin. I'll go look for that in a second.

That being said, based on sci-fi references in the titles, I have to say, Vigo's Le Guinism totally smacks the shiznit out of Adam's tired Star Wars crap.

I really need to stop watching things on Vice News.

Bride Kidnapping in Kyrgyzstan

Although, "Indonesia's Transsexual Muslims" does look intriguing...

Yeah, I've read those two, also the one he did with Chris Hedges that got the latter accused of plagiarism.

The Lahiri stories are nowhere near like what we're talking about. Mostly gentle, domestic stories about dreams and love and family and so on.

They made a movie of one of her books that I saw but didn't read. It's got pretty much the same feel.

Anita just got kicked aside, my new pin-up is here
While looking up something entirely different (Trotsky's archive of book reviews, if you must know) I stumbled upon this extremely interesting website: Anti-Caste: On Caste, Women's Oppression, Communalism, and Class Struggle in South Asia from a Marxist Perspective

I think this (post 2489, page 42) is the start of my attempt at Dalit Liberation threadjacking. There might be a few entries from before.

I've never heard of that Sacco book, Usagi-san, I'll certainly keep an eye out for it.

So, a bit of a confession. I was working at the airport, taking some courses at UMass Boston, six or seven years into my apolitical commie activist hibnernation, and I was assigned Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri. It actually got removed from the syllabus, but since I had already bought it, I read it anyway.

It's just short stories, I liked them, but things would pop out like caste and arranged marriages, and I'd go hmmmm, oh well, cultural relativism, right? And then I got back into leftist politics and that spate of headline-grabbing Indian gang-rapes came along, I started reading some, and I was disgusted with myself for ever having entertained such bullshiznit liberal PC notions.

I'll read the Blatant Commie Propaganda shortly, but in the meantime, have you read Joe Sacco's story about the Dalits of Kushinagar? Caste and poverty. They appear to have left feudalism behind maybe ten minutes ago. The theoretical free market there doesn't seem to be working for them, I'd be interested in what Trots would say.

What? You actually want to hear what the Trots have to say?

Are you trying to seduce me, Usagi-san?

NYT: Arundhati Roy, the Not-So-Reluctant Renegade

I am only half way through, but I think I am in love.

Spurred by your questions, Usagi-san, I cursorily googled some more. I didn't find any complete transcriptions of what she said but I did find this, which, I admit, doesn't make it look good for Ms. Roy.

Why does Arundhati Roy think Gandhi was casteist?

Synergistic weirdiosily enough, we have a third generation Chinese-American comrade with pronounced Maoist tendencies coming up to give a talk on the Naxalites next weekend.

Anyway, I am now going to link every other article that I find interesting in my search engine results. You're welcome.

Congress Leader Ghulam Nabi Azad Seeks Action Against Arundhati Roy for Anti-Gandhi Comment

NYT: Arundhati Roy, the Not-So-Reluctant Renegade

DN!: Is India on a Totalitarian Path? Arundhati Roy on Corporatism, Nationalism and World’s Largest Vote

Some weird site that wouldn't load while I was waiting, but the article has a pretty interesting title: Why Dalit Radicals Don't Want Arundhati Roy to Write About Ambedkar

Oh, a necromantized gender politics thread? What could it be about? Hobby Lobby? The Massachusetts buffer zone law?

Nope, another article on dalits that caught my eye.

Arundhati Roy accuses Mahatma Gandhi of discrimination
