What there is to know?

How do you look at people? How do you look at women? Do you look at men differently and why? Do you think of people’s clothing, that their looks make stories of them who they are and what do those details tell you? Do you compare yourself to others? Do you have specific ideas of what certain people should be wearing and look like to be accepted and respected? What does appearance mean to you and how important it is for you as means of expression, telling of status, ideas, occupation, priorities, wealth, interests, character, intellect, creativity and what goes on in someone’s mind and life? How much of this thinking process is rational and what is irrational, how much is based on feelings and hanging on to stereotypes? How much do you enjoy people get hurt? What do you make of this hurt?

How much do you judge people by their appearance and how does that happen? Is a constant way for you to put people down in their places to be controlled and bullied, you above or on the same level? How does that make you feel? What do you do when you judge, what kind of process is it? Do you do it without hesitation, without second thought? Do you make visible reactions, gestures, do you speak of what you have seen, a version of yours to someone who will have same kind of reactions and thoughts as you do? What kinds of reactions do you show and give to people or do you keep those assumptions to yourself? Do you ever wonder why do you think the way you do? How do you understand justification for behaviour where people are what they look like, that people represent specific types of people who do not change, which they can’t help and change, over which they do not have power. What do you think when people are unable to have a say over what is spoken of them, that it is taken for granted people are what they look like, represent and this is passed forward as such without being self-critical. People who speak of other people and their ‘flaws’ surely are perfect, aren’t they. Situation is they have been granted acceptance within a group and from that security they speak. How weak is that. To understand our weaknesses is to admit to them.

Physical violence is not the only form of violence and when you see blood you can either scream or do something about it. How much do you think you have responsibility on what you say, how much your word weighs, how trustworthy are you? What is your responsibility concerning judgment, equality, human rights and human relations? What do you think keeps segregation, class, bullying, fear of difference alive, gaps between us? Who is interested in truth and how to find it?

Could you analyse these sentences: I find you interesting. Do you like anal sex?

You can send me your answers hjoronen@gmail.com Cheers!

P.S. You can tell me whether you like anal sex or not and why. I don’t base my interest on anyone by sexual preferences or try to trick by telling first someone is interesting and would you have kinky sex with me kind of way if you know what I mean. Thank you.

Breath of a bimbo, death of a bimbo.

Interesting is how a person who is chased, followed, persecuted and hunted can be a perfect image and how much work does it take to keep that image up. Desired, stared at, a cutout, part played, a poster and a perfect product which has been prepared and designed by herself realized within an industry for many reasons, or maybe reasons are very simple and few. She wants to be this almost a nonperson but strictly hyper female, an entertainer with seemingly light presence but still extremely heavy impact. Peculiar mixture of feather floating in the air and tragedy of a culture, a woman, emotions following when this feather does not perform anymore, when she ceases to exist as a living person and becomes fully merchandised. A mere idol not in any case, she has a story which plays the major role. Where she comes from (excellent novel Blond by Joyce Carol Oates focuses on the story of an abandoned girl based on biography of Norma Jean Baker, partly imagined as she is). A money maker shaking as much as a mark maker who is controlling her image but is strictly under control monitored. As it seems to have been for Marilyn Monroe she was being carefully watched, observed like a specimen for something beautiful to look at but not appreciated as a thinking performing artist as she wanted to be, not given character roles as she thought happened to her. What was her character other than the posing delight? Roles for women weren’t something to be played with. To know what the expectations are and play accordingly. To do something special and artistic in front of camera was to be daring, broken, problematic, profound and mysterious. Scandalous for a woman was to act like a man, demand something better than, have dimensions and will of her own. Still Marilyn played roles of women who knew how to get what they wanted, how to reach out to their dreams. What kinds of dreams was she allowed to have? What was possible for her? Same kinds of dreams girls have today?

Why are you interested in a bimbo, I have been asked. I don’t think her as a bimbo. It is false and distracting. Sexiness and seductiveness do not mean brainlessness. To be feminine is still seen opposite to reasonable and rational. Why do I go back to her again? Her case is extraordinary in a frame where extraordinary meant to realize what was expected of her putting that to an expound still, a gorgeous living shell. To be more than the expectations but to do the expected and nothing more is hard thing to do, a tight-rope, a corset. No wonder she was followed. People waited her to make mistakes. Ironically this is an expectation for her to make her happen as sexual desirable icon to whom many kinds of feelings and thoughts are targeted. The moment when she could not stick to her artificial frame anymore, when she got drunk and out of control, when she could not keep it in her role, when her life didn’t go as planned but fell apart, when things, life and people could not be tuned to follow paranoid fascist rules and predatory celebrity culture. When she brakes the rules hell brakes loose. She represents danger as default and exaggerates this quality, becomes the whore she is, a failure who can’t keep up the speed, a sad figure who has problems, cries in front of cameras, weak human, a woman who is flesh and blood and is to be eaten.

Phenomenon of a bimbo is culturally important as it is to partly exclude, point out what is interesting in women, put aside, hate, poke, use and discard as it is to despise people who look beautiful (sounds odd doesn’t it), are more than most and to keep alive the main function of women for many: to please, look nice and be nice, bring pleasure but not to do anything they are not supposed to. That is true despise, not admiration. Importance is in the interest, where interest lies, what things are paid attention to, why are we interested in certain people to the extent of mania and obsession, what are the things we pay attention to in people and why sexual arousal of mind is crucial in money making, in making movies, why we are so interested in sexy photos. Seduction and sex appeal play such huge role in entertainment, in women’s lives and in everything that questioning it is not irrelevant. Living in denial and having release in exposure. What is in idea of a bimbo, eternal the beauty? Everything. Everything to want, pieces of her, fun of hers, life of hers, to be wanted which is mistaken for love. Her loving the viewers. Bimbo looks for love, for sex, partners, gazes, admirers who watch. She feeds from cult of a bimbo entertainer. It is the presumption which is placed on all women. It is her evil side into which she drowns which drowning she enjoys. The bigger she grow the bigger the pleasure or disaster. She plays her role to the death. Such devotion and dedication is a talent.

To create a role to play in front of millions of people and play that being with every cell, every move, pose, every facial expression is practiced, carefully made up to sculpt a persona in detail. No life of a bimbo without calculative manipulation which matches up the role where bimbo uses her being, body and role to make money and fame for herself and for the machine which takes her, made her. To create an idol is to seduce, understand seduction.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bimbo “Bimbo is a derogatory slang term for an attractive but unintelligent female. The term was originally used in the United States as early as 1919 for an unintelligent or brutish male.
As of early 21st century, the “stereotypical bimbo” appearance has become that of an attractive woman, often blonde and with a curvaceous figure and large breasts, possibly wearing heavy makeup and revealing clothing.[citation needed] However, none of these traits are strictly needed for a person to be considered a bimbo. It is sometimes associated with men or women who dye their hair blonde indicating that physical attractiveness is more important to them than other, non-physical traits[1] and as an extension to the “dumb blonde” stereotype.[1]
