Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belong to a man-a woman who was ‘one-in-herself.’ The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chasity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past…, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus-they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramatic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chasity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched. When Joan of Arc, with her witch coven associations, was called La Pucelle-‘the Maiden,’ ‘the Virgin’ - the word retained some of its original pagan sense of a strong and independent woman. The Moon Goddess was worshipped in orgiastic rites, being the divinity of matriarchal women free to take as many lovers as they choose. Women could ‘surrender’ themselves to the Goddess by making love to a stranger in her temple.

Heterosexists say that gay people “always want to make everyone gay” as though heterosexuals don’t always want to make everyone straight.

"Shoot to kill"

Businesses around the embassy are closing up shop and putting plywood over their windows. Tahrir is packed, and tanks line the main roads into Cairo. Inside the embassy, people have packed bug-out bags and are claiming couches in case they end up stuck here overnight. I wish I’d brought a toothbrush to work.

 

The election results will be announced at 3—we’ll see how things go.

As if you needed more reasons to love David Ogden Stiers…

Not only was he the abrasive, but sentimental Dr. Charles Emerson Winchester III on M*A*S*H, but chances are he voiced one of your favourite cartoon characters as well!

Here are only a few examples of the wonderful voice work Mr. Stiers has done over the years:

Dr. Jumba (Lilo and Stitch)

Governor Ratcliffe & Wiggins (Pocahontas)

Cogsworth (Beauty and the Beast)

Mr. Harcourt (Atlantis: The Lost Empire)

Kamajii (Spirited Away [English Dub])

The Archdeacon (The Hunchback of Notre Dame)

This man voiced my youth.

For one little kid, watching this movie, you sort of get the sense that it is all right to be around people who stand up for what is right and how difficult it can get.
