He is also smashing his penis into Pebble's "cereal bowl" (and we know from Patriarchal porn that the vagina is often named the "cereal bowl").

A clearer image of the rape culture cannot be found. Bam Bam is raping Pebbles.


Yes, and both Bam Bam and Pebbles were indoctrinated into this patriarchal rape culture by their fathers Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble.  Other Cocoa Pebbles cereal boxes feature both Fred and Barney on the front, and Wilma and Betty are nowhere to be seen, obviously at home in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant.

Interestingly, Barney is often shown trying to steal Fred's Pebbles.  This is obviously a metaphor for Barney's inappropriate sexual interest in Fred's daughter, Pebbles, who is portrayed as the property of her father, Fred. 


I just realized that Barney is drilling into Pebbles' "cereal bowl" in this image.  This is even worse and a clear violation of poor Pebbles.  Barney is figuratively raping Pebbles.

What do you think would be an appropriate politically correct version of this cereal box.  Pebbles kicking Bam Bam in the groin and pumping her fist in the air?

Also, there's a variation on this cereal called Fruity Pebbles.  This name is clearly homophobic and disrespectful of Pebbles' future sexual orientation - it is a rather crass attempt to make fun of what is a difficult personal decision for a girl, that is, the decision to come out as a lesbian.

I could probably modify this posting a bit and post it as a joke over at a feminist site under a different screen name.  I wonder if some would think it was serious.

Today I doing some shopping at the local Safeway, when I happened to stroll down the cereal aisle.  I couldn't help but notice that most of the characters, human or animal, on the cereal boxes, were male.  Well, one in particular - Cocoa Pebbles - gave me concern.  Just look at the box cover:

http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5347/8847923775_86a7504fe3_z.jpg

In this image, Bam Bam is striking a bowl of Cocoa Pebbles with a small club, creating quite a mess, while Pebbles looks on and smiles approvingly.  This is clearly a case of Bam Bam asserting his hegemonic masculinity over Pebbles, while she is apparently complicit in her subjugation, both present and future, to Bam Bam.  Even the aggressive smile on Bam Bam's face seems to reinforce his glee at his brutal expression of male dominance.  This is obviously one of the many ways in which The Patriarchy seeks to brainwash young children through the consumption of cereals such as this into accepting stereotypical gender roles in which women and girls are subjugated to men.

And the other cereal boxes weren't much better.  From Cap'n Crunch to the Trix rabbit, one mostly sees expressions of male dominance and female characters are either nowhere to be seen, or mere accessories to the male characters.

Clearly this outrage must be stopped!  We must contact the advertisers behind the companies that produce these sexist cereal boxes and demand that they portray an equal number of empowered women and girls.  Only then can children learn a more fair and balanced portrayal of female characters, and rise up against the male oppression that expresses itself everywhere, even on cereal boxes.

[Note: I was inspired to write this piece of satire by an earlier posting about an actual feminist that made a similar observation about cereal boxes.  I just had to write it down while the idea was still fresh.]

"Wimmin are incapable of hatred.


I knew it! Wimmin aren't human!



*Chuckle* Actually, "wimmin" sound like some kind of mutant race of humans or something.  The first time I encountered the word (At Auckland University in the early '80s) it was spelled "womin" which is just as ridiculous and worthy of contempt.

Apparently this mutant race of "wimmin" is being persecuted by "The Patriarchy" ... that group of old white bearded men in white robes meeting in secret scheming how to benefit men by oppressing women.  Actually, they send the Knights of the Patriarchal Order out on horseback to do it for them.  I think you can join the Knights actually ... they'll send you a free beret in the mail!

All in all, that first sentence in particular is breathtaking in it's use of feminist clichés and ignorance of reality.

Wimmin: Eeek, "The Patriarchy" is after us! :laughing6:  :toothy9:

A few years ago over at Wikipedia some feminist wanted to delete the entry for "misandry", and the discussion can be found in the "Talk" section.  Here are a couple of excerpts from that Talk page (Note: It's so absurd you may not be able to stop laughing for a few minutes):

"Wimmin are incapable of hatred. Misandry is an artificial construct of the Patriarchy created because they hate it when feminists assert them..."

"Misandry is just an artificial construct of the Patriarchy created because they hate it when feminists assert themselves and try to deconstruct the..."

Perhaps I shouldn't have laughed so hard as obviously the crazy feminist was serious in her comment, and unaware of how Orwellian it was.

Some great comments!

Ha Ha Ha. It seems that when the light of research is shone on any feminist slogan its truth dissolves faster than candy floss in a furnace. After being lectured by women for decades that men have 'commitment issues' it is finally revealed that it's really women who have the difficulty with sustaining a relationship, and it's men who are the more faithful. This will hardly come as a surprise to married men who have always known that wives are willing to play high stakes poker with a marriage over very small matters rather than make sensible compromises.

First it was women being shown to have higher levels of drunkenness than men, then it was the proven absence of discrimination against women in salaries, now it's women being less faithful than men. I can't wait for all the other chapters of the feminist catechism to be investigated and trashed. It is very satisfying to see rational examination of actual behaviour starting to replace the feminist politics of gender hatred.


"The feminist catechism" sounds a lot like "The feminist catastrophe."  Or "cataclysm."

Interesting article, but it starts with the premise that women used to be treated as imbeciles or sex-objects in say the 1960s.  That's not entirely accurate as women were often treated with respect even if their roles tended to be that of housewife.  Contrast that with the way men have been portrayed in the media and ads since the 1990s or so.

This is an incident that occurred on a greenbelt trail in the Denver suburb of Wheat Ridge about a month ago.  It was reported as a man stabbing a woman and her toddler child, and there was a manhunt for the man.  I almost didn't see this follow up to this story in which it turned out that the woman allegedly stabbed herself and her child and blamed the man.  This was during the major flooding in Colorado that week, so this new story slipped under my radar until now.

Police arrest woman accused of stabbing child

The investigation into last month's Wheat Ridge Greenbelt-area double-stabbing took a bizarre twist last week after police arrested the woman who was once thought to be a victim in the case - no accused of trying to pin the attack of her and her child on a man who she claims raped her years ago.
 
Stephany Harwood, 21, of Lakewood was arrested last week, and was being held at the Jefferson County jail on a felony charge of child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury. She was given a $100,000 bond.

Police believe that Harwood was the one who stabbed herself and her toddler son on a walking trail on Aug. 22. Harwood then allegedly concocted a story to try to place the blame on Marvin Gean Wilson - a man with a lengthy criminal history and whom Harwood claims she has known since she was a girl.

Harwood told police that Wilson attacked her and her son as they were walking along a Greenbelt trail near 48th Avenue and Otis Street.

But police aren't buying her story.

Detectives suspect several inconsistencies with Harwood's account, which is detailed in a 15-page arrest warrant affidavit. And police find it troubling that Harwood allegedly told a neighbor prior to the Greenbelt incident that she recently had a dream about being assaulted by Wilson and that she had a "weird feeling in her stomach" that he was back in the area - the day before the stabbing occurred, according to the affidavit.

Harwood was arrested Sept. 13 on a felony charge of child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury and is being held on a $100,000 cash-only bond at the Jefferson County jail. She made her first court appearance on Sept. 16.

Police had become suspicious of Harwood's story even prior to them interviewing her the day after the incident.

Detectives were troubled by the number of times that Harwood and her family have filed police reports against Wilson over the years. The first one was a 2007 case, where Harwood helped authorities in an investigation into a sexual assault case that allegedly took place two years prior. Harwood also claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Wilson in Park County that same year, but that case was never prosecuted.

In four other reports of incidents involving Wilson that were brought forth by either Harwood or her family from 2008 through 2010, police say that "no evidence was located to believe that Wilson had been involved in any of the incidents, and investigating officers were suspicious of the events occurring as reported," according to the affidavit.

The day after the Greenbelt stabbings, police met with a neighbor whom Harwood spoke with the day before she reported being attacked by Wilson. The neighbor told police that Harwood told her that she had a dream about Wilson stabbing her the night before, and that Harwood told her that she "gets a weird feeling in her stomach when the guy that raped her comes around."

Harwood told police in an interview later that day that she first met Wilson when she about 15 years old, at time when he was involved in a relationship with her nephew's mother.

She told police that she knew it was Wilson who had attacked her on the Greenbelt, because she had "'looked him in the eyes,'" according to the affidavit.

"I was raped by him when I was 15 years old and I've never (forgotten) that face," she told detectives.

Prior to the Greenbelt incident, she told police that she had last seen Wilson three years ago, during an incident where she claimed that he used a knife to cut the side of her face and threatened to harm her son. She said that Wilson "has always stalked her" and he's wanted her dead ever since she cooperated in the case against him several years ago.

"I guess I was honestly done but I guess I was wrong because he got my son this time," she said, according to the affidavit.

But detectives told Harwood that her story "doesn't add up," and that "it is unusual" for someone to have a dream about being assaulted, feel an attack coming on and then have it actually occur.

Police were also confused after Harwood had them that Wilson had threatened her son three years ago, at a time when it was "not humanly possible" for her to have yet been pregnant with her son.

After telling Harwood that she needed to start telling the truth, she asked for a lawyer.

Police also interviewed Harwood's boyfriend, who told them that Harwood "seems like a decent person, but she may have some mental issues," according to the affidavit.

As for Wilson's whereabouts, police haven't been able to locate him. The FBI made contact with Wilson's brother in Florida, who told the agency that Wilson may now be living in Mexico.


The accused man is apparently a criminal and it's unclear whether her allegation against him raping her as a teenager is true or not, so the story is rather complex.  However, I thought I'd post this here.

Here is the original story that many saw a month ago in which it appeared that the man stabbed the woman and child.  It was rather upsetting and demoralizing at the time (and the whole weird story still is):

BTW, the other story I posted about the woman allegedly killed by her lesbian roommate and buried in the mountains also took place in Wheat Ridge.  What is going on there?

I was looking at vintage ads for Life magazine, and found a sexist ad ... against men that is:

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/119134352613887218/

Life Magazine, September 1956. Ad for Arrow Shirts. "A woman's most important accessory is a well dressed man."

Feminists have put up lists of vintage "sexist" ads against women, and a few of them may be, but it seems to be cherry picking from the vast majority that weren't or that even portrayed women (and men) in a positive light.
