The Sewing Circle — (loose threads)

Man, I Feel Like a Woman!

shania

This special edition of my Sewing Circle series was BIRTHED by the backlog of SEW many…too many, “Look Like a Man” actresses.  Did men of the early 20th century have a proclivity towards manly wo-men just as men of the early 21st century appear to be leaning towards “boys with breasts?”  What attributes did men find attractive about women before Hollywood was calling the shots?  I’m hoping it was something like this:

The female presence aided in the active construction of society, and the manifestation of qualities such as compassion, care, protection, and love. Although these qualities are not restricted to the female gender, having a stronger female presence in society helped build a more just and equitable community.  Upliftconnect.com

There is no spectacle on earth more appealing than that of a beautiful woman in the act of cooking dinner for someone she loves. Tom Wolfe

That “someone she loves” could be another woman.  That beautiful “woman” could also be a man.  The Divine Masculine and Feminine roles sometimes overlap, but ultimately they have clearly defined functions to fulfill and this Sewing Circle series is my small attempt to encourage readers to stop supporting Hollywood’s subversive agenda to confuse the issue.  Compassion, care, protection, and love have no role to play in Hollywood.  Never have and never will.

The Sewing Circle (Part 2)

This pet project is just my opinion based on the lifestyles of the subjects profiled.

Sewing Circle is a phrase used to describe the underground, closeted lesbian and bisexual film actresses and their relationships in Hollywood, particularly during Hollywood’s golden age from the 1910s to the 1950s.  The actress Alla Nazimova coined this usage.  Some of the actresses that I will be profiling in this series were rumored or admitted lesbians.  The remainder were childless and/or unmarried throughout their lives.  Since women can have several reasons for not having children, this does not prove anything.  Decide for yourself.

NOTE:  I am only profiling actresses who were prominent enough in their day to have a relatively detailed Wikipedia page (including a photo.)  There are many more secondary and character actresses who could be added to the list.

Pro$perity Pu$hers: An Oral Report

Welcome to the second edition in my series based on the materialistic and heretical theology known as the “Prosperity Gospel.”

Joyce Meyer (born Pauline Joyce Hutchison) is a Charismatic Christian author and speaker and president of Joyce Meyer Ministries.  Meyer claims that she was praying while driving to work one morning in 1976 (age 33) when she said she heard God call her name.  She came home later that day from a beauty appointment “full of liquid love” and was “drunk with the Spirit of God” that night while at the local bowling alley.  (I think that’s called “a bender.”)  Within a few years, Meyer was an associate pastor.  In 1985, she resigned as associate pastor and began her own ministry, airing a radio show on six stations from Chicago to Kansas City.  In 1993, her husband Dave suggested they start a TV ministry initially airing on superstation WGN-TV in Chicago and Black Entertainment Television (BET).

The Sewing Circle – (Part 1)

This article is just my opinion based on the lifestyles of the subjects profiled.

“Sewing Circle” is a phrase used to describe the underground, closeted lesbian and bisexual film actresses of Hollywood, particularly during Hollywood’s golden age from the 1910s to the 1950s.  The actress Alla Nazimova (godmother of former first lady Nancy Reagan) was the one credited with coining the term.  Many of the actresses that I will be profiling in this series were rumored or admitted lesbians.  The remainder were childless and/or unmarried throughout their lives.  Since women can have several reasons for not having children, this does not prove anything.  You may decide for yourself.  Keep in mind, though, that over the course of the 19th century, the average American woman gave birth to six children, not including children lost to miscarriages and stillbirths.  And globally, up to 1965, the average woman had more than five children.

None of the birth control methods of the 19th century (aside from infanticide and abortion) were particularly effective, and none of them were new.  Withdrawal by the male, douching and vaginal suppositories were around in ancient times and common in the 19th century.  In 1838 condoms and diaphragms were produced with vulcanized rubber. It was second in popularity to withdrawal but was not advocated as birth control.  Instead, it was to be used to prevent venereal disease.  The most effective form of birth control was (and still is) abstaining from sexual intercourse (with men).

Jennifer Connelly – a Beautiful Lie

“Their sexual profile is, possibly, part of the in vitro neutering procedures I suspect in use that then produce gay or latent assets who won’t be burdened by actual family obligations. (That last bit is pure speculation but a useful placeholder until I can get to the bottom of this) I suspect their contributing biological parents are cousins, the mothers themselves illegitimate, thus certain physical traits, like height or lack thereof, become pronounced amid this milieu.” (Tyrone McCloskey, Cold Blood and Weak Tea)

Tyrone’s words came to mind as I read Kevin’s piece below, mostly because of the words “…until I get to the bottom of this.” I too would like to get to the bottom of this – we’ve dabbled about the edges with Matt Damon and the Bokanovsky Brats. There is something going on here with the breeding and selection of talent that graces our music and entertainment industries, young brats selected at a very young age (perhaps even in vitro) and given an automatic ticket to stardom.

Kevin did not set out to write about Jennifer Connelly, and all of the writers here know about this experience – we just stumble into things and can’t let go. Over at Fakeologist there is a short video up showing a part of the Zapruder film, and in it can plainly be seen that JFK before the road sign is not the same person as JFK after the road sign. I only mention that because a person of interest turns up in the comments there and is given a royal and unique Terran Downvale treatment – Jim Henson, who also turns up in Kevin’s piece below. Terran, it seems, also has trouble letting go of things.

Kevin tells me he is thinking about starting his own blog, and this piece would not fit with his plans, so offers it to us here. He has also been featured prominently in the past by Miles Mathis, the most recent on faith healers.

Without further adieu …
