Women and Fear

Mon, 23 Jul 2007 00:21:46 +0000

I did a lot of media for Women in the Line of Fire and I was struck by the number of women who thought they had a vested interest in being weak and fearful. (One woman told me that I should know there are differences between men and women, especially menstruation, and that to want women to be strong and have stamina was to want them to be men. I finally lost it and told her that since the historic human norm was for women to do hard work on less food than men doing similar, work, often while pregnant or nursing, maybe it was time we women gave the masculine-strength-and-stamina thing a try.)

Then I started pondering why women think that being weak and fearful is in their best interests, since it is objectively true that anyone who wants you weak and fearful is your enemy.

This is the resulting essay.

****
Before you are 40, death comes from outside: wars and accidents.

After you are 40, death comes from inside: cancer and heart attacks and other disease.

If you’re a man, it’s been this way for all of time.

If you’re a woman, it has been this way only in the developed world since about 1940, when in the United States, maternal mortality—a woman’s chance of dying in childbirth—first dropped below one in a hundred. In modern Afghanistan, one in six women dies in childbirth, a figure that does not include deaths due to delayed complications: this is probably close to the historic human norm.

Since time out of mind, for women death has come to us first from inside: the onset of puberty, especially menarche, marked us for death. To be explicit, by men, whether we loved them or not, but most especially if we did and they returned that love. All other causes of death, including war and the aftermath of war, were secondary.

To understand this is to understand the weird dichotomy men have traditionally felt towards women: a mix of genuine protectiveness towards the fragile and precious, and genuine contempt for the less-than-human.

How else, as a group, could men maintain their sanity, when the natural drive towards sex for procreation often resulted in their partners’ deaths?

But these tragic facts did not only corrupt relations between men and women, they also corrupted the relationship of women to our own bodies and to the world we live in.

When the man you love is the man most likely to kill you—not because he is abusive, but because he has given you the child you wanted from him—men sui generis become fearsome and dangerous.

When you bear the physical demands of pregnancy, as well as the pain and danger of childbirth, you perceive your body as weaker than and inferior to the male body. Far weaker than it in fact actually is, because the female body has had to cope with all the hardships of evolution and the environment that men also bear, as well as the demands of reproduction that men do not share.

And when you think of yourself as weak by nature, you are far too likely to think of yourself as passive, if not helpless: to shape your world, to control outcomes, even to defend yourself.

So you fear.

Abortion

Sun, 22 Jul 2007 02:40:06 +0000

'Jane Roe' now regrets her role in the case Roe v. Wade. She has asked that the Supreme Court overturn it's landmark decision that legalized abortion 32 years ago, Roe V Wade.

My questions are:

1) Do you regret your decision to have had an abortion?

2) If abortion were illegal, would you have tried to find some to conduct the abortion, licensed or not?




Sounds Like Trouble?

Sat, 21 Jul 2007 03:36:08 +0000

Argh, are you hearing those noises coming out from under your hood again? If it's not one thing, it's another right? Just because it sounds like the only explanation for the crazy noises must be a raccoon, consider these suggestions and listen just a little bit harder next time. Of course, we still recommend you take your vehicle in to a certified technician. Squeaks, squeals, rattles, rumbles, and other sounds provide valuable clues about problems and maintenance needs. Here are some common noises and what they mean: Squeal - A shrill, sharp noise: • Loose or worn power steering, fan or air conditioning belt. If this happens every morning it isn’t the neighbor’s cat, but is usually a loose or worn accessory drive belt will cause this kind of noise. With regular maintenance and vehicle inspections this noise can usually be avoided. Click - A slight sharp noise, related to either engine speed or vehicle speed: • Loose wheel cover. • Loose or bent fan blade. • Stuck valve lifter or low engine oil. With regular maintenance and vehicle inspections this noise can usually be avoided. Screech - A high-pitched, piercing metallic sound; usually occurs while the vehicle is in motion: • Caused by brake wear indicators to let you know it's time for maintenance. There are sensors on most all vehicles front and rear disc brake pads and when the brake pad wears down to a certain point this sensor makes contact with the brake rotor and creates a squeal when the vehicle is moving. This squeal will usually get either louder or go away when the brake pedal is pressed, if left unattended this could cause damage to other brake system components. If you are hearing a grinding noise and the squealing noise is gone, further damage to your brake drums may be starting. Take your vehicle in for a brake inspection. Whomping or thumping - Noise coming from the rear of the car: Unless you have one of those huge custom sound systems installed in your trunk... • Tire, suspension or alignment When at highway speeds (45 to 70 mph) there is a fast paced whopping or thumping noise from the rear of the car. This could be caused by the rear tires cupping or chopping due to a lack of proper tire rotation or weak shock and or struts. If you run your hand across the tread area of the tires and find them bumpy like a wash board or cheese grater they will require replacement and your vehicles suspension and alignment should be checked. Ping - A high-pitched metallic tapping sound, related to engine speed: • Usually caused by using gas with a lower octane rating than recommended. Check your owner's manual for the proper octane rating. If the problem persists, engine ignition timing could be at fault. This is commonly called spark knock and is caused by high temperatures in the combustion chambers of your engine and the fuel igniting before the spark plug fires. If a higher grade of gasoline does not correct this it might be time for a fuel injection service or tune up on your engine. Finding a good auto repair facility is always a concern, especially when the unexpected happens. One important thing to remember is to look for ASE Certification. ASE-certified automotive technicians and other service professionals can be identified in several ways. The most obvious is to look for the ASE sign on the facility. Once inside, most establishments proudly display the ASE certificates earned by their technicians in their office or waiting room. Finally, the technicians may be wearing an ASE patch on the shoulder of their uniform. All ASE-cer[...]
