Anna

I'm just glad she's smashing all those stereotypes about feminist poetry. :-)

I’m just glad she's smashing all those stereotypes about feminist poetry. :-)

It is, I think, quite revealing, though perhaps not in the ways intended. Ms Binkovitz says that after telling “a room of strangers” about her liberated womanliness and love of giving blowjobs, she was complimented on her attitude to fellatio. Said remark was (of course) a cause of outrage because it wasn’t sufficiently about her, her personal history and self-elaborated dramas. And how dare a man listen to her poetry and not respond with deep and limitless interest in Ms Binkovitz and her fascinating self? Apparently, we must only respond to feminist poetry in ways approved by feminists.

By the way, if rambling and shouty self-absorption is your thing, there’s more to be had.

Said remark was (of course) a cause of outrage because it wasn’t sufficiently about her, her personal history and self-elaborated dramas.

A point admirably proved by imagining what her reaction would have been if the man had expressed a quite different reaction such as:

- vocal disapproval (outrage at his attempts to silence a feminist voice);

- silent but weary resignation (outrage at his overt display of male entitlement);

- polite applause (outrage at triggering trauma by not using feminist jazz hands);

- silent, smiling encouragement (outrage at his creepy and perverse sexual objectification);

- or indeed no discernible reaction whatsoever (outrage at his indifference).

Looks like she's put on a bit of weight since Babe 2: Pig In The City came out.

Makes me (almost) long for an endless Rod McKuen reading.

I'm not surprised that there is no one else there to hear it

“When the tree of me falls in orgasm, it does not matter if there is no one else there to hear it, I make a goddamn sound.”

Oh for f*ck's sake...

Oh for f*ck’s sake...

You mean it isn’t making you proud to be a woman and, like Ms Binkovitz, a roaring lioness?

"...her liberated womanliness and love of giving blowjobs..."

Must. Not. Comment...

Sort-of-Mad Max

Can she at least make a decent sandwich?

How This Woman Found Self-Love by Masturbating with the Lights On

If I didn't already know better I'd be convinced Everyday Feminism is a parody site.

Ms Binkovitz studied at Macalester College, where tuition costs a mere $60,000 a year, and now boasts a B.A. in... creative writing. So I’m sure that effort and massive debt is bound to pay off handsomely in no time at all. In addition to thrilling crowds and raking in those megabucks with her feminist poetry, Ms Binkovitz is working on a manuscript “focussed on the relationship between hip-hop and Judaism.”

I'll go out on a limb here and go with "bugger all".

Ah, but the ladies at Everyday Feminism take the subject of self-love very seriously.

To the extent that there are “scholarships available.”

Q: Would any male reaction Anna's verses about performing fellatio be acceptable?
A: Yes, but only a trans male. And only then if said transperson were transitioning from female to male, and it made him/her think of auto-fellatio.

Farnsworth M Muldoon

Ah, but the ladies at Everyday Feminism take the subject of self-love very seriously.

Given this lass, and the one from yesterday, and that even Ron Jeremy has standards, I'll go out on another limb and say that this is probably due to necessity.

As a famous man once said, and I paraphrase a bit for the children, of course, "Never stick your johnson in crazy".

Nikw211

Crying with laughter here ...

And yes, the visual evidence would indeed seem to indicate that a positive-inclining response would unlikely to be in error.

Jonathan

...focussed on the relationship between hip-hop and Judaism.

Pretty much listening to the Beastie Boys then.

Ms. Boinkowitz? Did I misread that? I assume it's a nom de plume?

GAAAAH I HATE YOU FOR THIS

David

No refunds. Credit note only.

I bet her dad is proud.

Gregoryno6

Kind of you to offer, but not before breakfast. And not after breakfast either.

Phil B

Well, if I WAS mad enough to want to have sex with her, I'd insist on a blowjob. It would be the only 5 minutes peace and quiet I'd enjoy around her.

Greg Allan

“When the tree of me falls in orgasm, it does not matter if there is no one else there to hear it, I make a goddamn sound.”

I suspect there never is anyone else there. Quite sad really. The only way to shut her up, I believe, is for some poor bloke, or lass, to volunteer to take one for the side.

It's just staggering to me that the market has developed that way, to the point where a roomful of creative writing students will contribute say 2-3 million dollars to a college for their BA.

Randy

Didn't she misspell "focused?"

mojo

I've never cared for people self-centered enough to commit poesey in public.

PS: What's with the do-rag? She just get off shift at the Spitfire factory?

Hal

What's with the do-rag? She just get off shift at the Spitfire factory?

That appears to be one of those hipster occurrences . . . .

SgtHulkasToe

I got stuck at the blowjob reference.

RickWright67

"it does not matter if there is no one else there to hear it, I make a goddamn sound.”

So... that's poetry? Beautiful poetry no less? By someone who wins poetry slams?

Ray

On a positive note, it could have been longer.

Tim Newman

I've heard a theory that these dimwits subsidies the STEM courses by paying for facilities and equipment. It's plausible.

Burnsie

Wait. Broadcasting one's fondness for performing fellatio will attract male attention?

No way, really?

Well, I'll be damned. These college kids, they know everything!
