Lyrics:

God is Male.
He’s old, he’s white.
His beard is long,
His asshole’s tight.
He watches everything you do,
and then He throws the Book at you.

Mighty father in the sky.
Mighty chromosomes XY.
Like the sons of Israel,
God’s a patriarchal male.

The Birth of YHWH

The Birth of YHWH from Nina Paley on Vimeo.

Music: “Schopska Pesen” (Diaphonic Chant) performed by the Bulgarian State Radio & TV Female Vocal Choir, c 1987
“Used to Love Her” by Guns N’ Roses, c 1988

In a recent essay, I wrote:

God used to be female. All of Her attributes were taken over by the male God. Creation, fertility, vegetation, the bringing forth of food, life and death – all that was once the Goddess’s is now God’s. It’s like the male God put on Her clothes, and then “identified” as Her, and there’s no Goddess any more.

This short clip began as an attempt to illustrate that.

Gender Colonialism

Last week I posted on fecebook “If a person has a penis he’s a man,” which led to my widespread denunciation as a “transphobe.” I’ve written about this before, and anyone paying attention should know better, but I nonetheless commented this:

No matter how many times I state that I have trans friends, was standing up for trans people before the current crop of MRA “transactivists” was even born, and continue to defend the human rights of trans people, people accuse me of the opposite. I tire of defending myself, and it makes no difference anyway. I hated seeing the trans movement get taken over by misogynistic men’s rights

You Gotta Believe

The lyrics are extremely clear in some places and hard to decipher in others. At two points the Pointer Sisters sing, “why don’t you let the Wilson Sisters set you free?”  Who are the Wilson Sisters? Does anyone know? Here are the lyrics I’m confident are accurate:

You gotta believe in something

Why not believe in me?

You gotta believe in something

Sphinx

This sphinx isn’t a goddess due to indeterminate femaleness. This sphinx also has indeterminate lion-ness, bird-ness, and human-ness. Xir is interspecies non-trinary.

Someone Is Wrong On The Internet

Someone is wrong on the internet
Somewhere’s a clue someone didn’t get
Someone is wrong but they think they’re right
Someone is wrong online tonight.

Maybe they’re right and I’m really wrong
Maybe they’re writing a better song
Maybe someday on the internet
Someone and I might get along.

Someone is wrong on the internet Somewhere’s a clue someone didn’t get Someone is wrong but they think they’re right Someone is wrong online tonight. Maybe they’re right
