When I was early on in high school we had two female gym teachers for the girls. (The football/basketball coaches were the boys’ gym teachers). While the younger, more “sexy” gym teacher allowed us to play more sports during gym class (and the REALLY haggy older gym teacher had us doing fucking jumping-jacks to no end) the younger gym teacher had this paperback book on her desk … “Fear Of Flying”. The only thing she would say to us when we inquired about the book was that it had changed her life (and that she was on like the fourth read of it …)
Two things I would later find out in my senior year of high school.
1. The book was a basically scandalous book of sex (from a ‘feminist’ point of view) for its time
2. The younger female gym teacher was fucking the younger football/basketball coach/gym teacher in the locker room between classes.
Having said that, I want to remind you that I also believe Naomi Wolfe to be one of the most fucking wigged-out women who, for some ungodly reason, keeps getting dragged out into the public media for her ratty-haired scatter-brained views and opinions …
And, if you are not a B-Movie sci-fi freak, as I was, you have no idea what the above picture is about.
She is the “Queen Of Blood” from the movie of the same name. John Saxon and company take aboard their space ship this green alien woman who goes about the sleeping ship sucking the crew’s blood and laying eggs …
Yeah, twisted, huh? … I turned out okay. Heh …
Anyhow, the lefty fems sure are sounding a bit scared about their guy who is assumed to be the next president, eh?
Heavy meds, girls. Get some …
Erica Jong Tells Italians Obama Loss ‘Will Spark the Second American Civil War. Blood Will Run in the Streets’
by Jason Horowitz - The New York Observer
It seems that the final days of the presidential campaign have made Erica Jong and her friends more than a little anxious.
A few days ago, Jong, the author and self-described feminist, gave an interview to the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, the choicest bits of which were brought to my attention by the reliably sharp-eyed Christian Rocca, the U.S. correspondent of Il Foglio, who published excerpts on his Camillo blog. Basically, Jong says her fear that Obama might lose the election has developed into an “obsession. A paralyzing terror. An anxious fever that keeps you awake at night.” She also says that her friends Jane Fonda and Naomi Wolf are extremely worried that Obama will be sabotaged by Republican dirty tricks, and that if an Obama loss indeed comes to pass, the result will be a second American Civil War.
Here’s a translation of Jong’s more spirited quotes to the Milan-based Corriere, as selected by Rocca.
“The record shows that voting machines in America are rigged.”
“My friends Ken Follett and Susan Cheever are extremely worried. Naomi Wolf calls me every day. Yesterday, Jane Fonda sent me an email to tell me that she cried all night and can’t cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduces her to a bundle of nerves.”
“My back is also suffering from spasms, so much so that I had to see an acupuncturist and get prescriptions for Valium.”
“After having stolen the last two elections, the Republican Mafia…”
“If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it’s not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets.”
“Bush has transformed America into a police state, from torture to the imprisonment of reporters, to the Patriot Act.”
She also laments that not all of America’s men of letters share her devotion to Obama.
“Tom Wolfe and John Updike are men of the right and Philip Roth is at this point a hermit who leads a monastic life in Connecticut, far from everything and everybody.”
Luckily, she said there is her and Michael Chabon, who, she says, have “taken the place of Susan Sontag and Norman Mailer respectively.”
They have the same political sensibilities, she said, but a better “sense of humor.”
