Bounding from obsession to obsession.
Hee hee.Don't you just love accurately placed ironicism? Here's another bit...It's a male fantasy fulfillment (e.g. Wonder Woman)... The staff, as a woman, with a woman, still fulfills latent wish for the man to have another staff as well as latent (or unlatent) wish to have two women. :)
I don't really follow that logic. Sometimes we apply genders to inanimate objects that mean something to us. Nicer than "it." People give genders to cars, weapons, even computers. Pens and pencils? They get the old second-class citizen "it" status.The "male fantasy fulfillment" theory doesn't really hold up. But it dose cause one to giggle.
It's the nubs at the end. The staff is a giant phallic symbol that ends with two nubs. Two large nubs that are usually jammed into other people's bodies, bringing pain to the hittee and pleasure to the hitter. Tell me I'm not the only one who sees this (or the only one who freaks me out).
I can't see it. Maybe I just need to get out more.
Well, I like the confluence (the fluidity?) more than I like the irony, but yeah. This has pushed me that little bit closer to actually checking out this series.
Rich, it's more likely that you get out *too* much. That's why you don't see it...
It SHOULD be more likely ... but isn't. I spent Saturday night with my own blog entry. *Sigh* Maybe I'm just blinding myself to it ... why torment myself?
it least it doesn't have the douche-chill inducing barbed end of Star Girl's phallic symbol.yee-ouch.
"you see, it's an OBJECT you POSSESS so it's like a GIRL, get it?"hilarity. its like aside from the lame object-to-woman idea, the writer didnt think about the visual at all.
Or maybe the writer did, and deliberately made the phallic power symbol female, thus undercutting the entire presumption that everything that's longer than it is wide must be inherently male.
