Here’s this week’s cover, on newsstands and the iPad tomorrow morning. And the summary of the corresponding story:
In an age where women are dominating – in the workplace, at school, at home – why are they seeking to be dominated in their love lives? Recent media portrayals have shown that a rising number of modern women fantasize about being overpowered, while studies are turning out statistics that bewilder feminists. New shows like HBO’s Girls and books like Fifty Shades of Grey are showcasing the often hidden desire for powerlessness. But why? Katie Roiphe examines the submissive yet empowered female in Newsweek. “It is perhaps inconvenient for feminism that the erotic imagination does not submit to politics, or even changing demographics,” she writes.
We haven’t seen the cover story yet, but color us intrigued! Let’s hear your pre-thoughts, tumblr.
EDITORIAL: Our media is dead. What has replaced it is a hyper-sexualized organization of predators who WANT YOUR DAUGHTERS!! They keep telling teen girls and young women that this is what women are wanting so that they will think it’s normal behavior. This is classic conditioning and grooming of the entire World’s female youth by American media and our government is right in there pushing it as well. If you don’t believe me, just check out the 1955 movie, “The Story of O” (or google “The Training of O” for Porn Valley’s real brutality). This is what Porn Valley has been pushing to your teens and now NEWSWEEK has joined the Misogynistic Mens Club of America !!
Notice this article says women want to be dominated but then the evidence they use as fact is that women in media are being portrayed that way so it must be what women want. If NEWSWEEK is saying this, they are either dumber than my fence post and totally useless as a news source or they know EXACTLY what they are doing which is using brainwashing and mind control methods in our media along with Hollywood and Porn Valley, all to turn YOUR daughters into the Elite’s Sex Slaves!!
The reason women are buying “50 Shades of Gray” and other pornofied garbage the media has been pushing in mainstream is because of exactly that. Our society has become like zombies who do whatever media tells them to. If TV, Radio or Print says it’s the bomb and everyone’s buying it, people go out in droves to get it without even knowing what it is. And then, of course, all your celebrities who have already sold their souls to the Devil jump on board to push it too. Think “The View” (sorry, Barbara, but really, can’t you do something about this??). I just wonder if and when America will wake up and realize they have sold their children to rapists and sexual predators while they were busy playing Corporate America on their smartphones and IPads?? I’m not sure but Newsweek pushing BDSM to the World just may be the end of the World in 2012. I know it’s the end of our children’s innocence if the World does not change its’ ways!!
WOMEN . . . You better stand up and starting battling unless you want your life and that of your daughters to be all about serving men and their sexual pleasures. That’s what this is all about. HEY NEWSWEEK . . You have just sold out every female on this earth, your daughters, wives, sisters, mothers. Just remember, sexual predatory behavior has no social boundaries so no female is safe in the hypersexualized environment we live it!
Women, I believe it’s time for us to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Oh, wait a minute . . . isn’t that what we’ve been doing and NO ONE IS LISTENING!!
We need to get more SMART women into politics. Hillary is the only female politician I’ve seen with brains and not under some man’s thumb in Washington for like . . . forever!!
NOTICE THERE’S NO WOMEN ON THE BALLOT IN 2012??
Hello, is there anyone out there that cares??

|Getting Real: Challenging the Sexualisation of Girls
Melinda Tankard Reist(ed.)From advertising and merchandising to Bratz and Voodoo Dolls to the Henson affair, Getting Real puts the spotlight on the sexualisation and objectification of girls and women in the media, popular culture and society.
Girls are portrayed as sexual at younger ages, pressured to conform to a ‘thin, hot, sexy’ norm. Clothing, music, magazines, toys and games send girls the message that they are merely the sum of their body parts. The effects of prematurely sexualising girls are borne out in their bodies and minds, with a rise in self-destructive behaviours such as eating disorders and self-harm, along with anxiety, depression and low self-esteem.
Getting Real brings together writers, advocates and academics including some of the most vocal critics of the widespread pornification of culture. They call corporations, the media and the sex industry to account for creating this toxic environment.
Lively and engaging, this collection is of interest to anyone troubled by what’s happening today and those seeking ideas to address and mobilise against the sexualisation of girls. Edited by author, advocate and commentator Melinda Tankard Reist, this is a book for anyone wanting to see a better world for the next generation.
