'Women in Binders' as Kinky Progressive Fantasy

User avatar
My essay in The Washington Times

Image

Why has the phrase "binders full of women" captured the progressive imagination more than any other of the hundreds exchanged between Romney and Obama during the second presidential debate?

The townhall event wasn't even over, and already the Internet was afire with snarky "women in binders" jokes, parodies, and pictures, prompting a glowing CNN report about "a Twitter hashtag, a series of memes on Tumblr, and a Facebook page with over 100,000 fans."

Reasonable people are scratching their heads: what is so terribly wrong with this seemingly innocuous, if awkward, way to describe Mitt Romney's efforts to find qualified women applicants?

The confusion is understandable: the cultural divide in this country has reached a point where both sides might as well need binders full of interpreters to help them communicate. As a one-time professional interpreter, let me give it a shot and translate into normal language what "binders full of women" mean to a modern American progressive.

Remember the word "Teabaggers"? It was with the same carnivorous enthusiasm that the progressive TV anchors popularized this insulting term, while deriving gloating pleasure from the fact that most of the wholesome and innocent Tea Party goers had no clue what it meant.

As it turned out, elite progressive thinkers and high society in general had long been linking the word "teabag" to male genitalia and certain ways of using it in homosexual practices. How the knowledge of this obscure intimate activity became so widespread in progressive quarters is still a mystery.

It is apparent, however, that the term had caused such a deafening ringing of their mental bells that they missed the small voice of reason telling them not to give away too much information about their personal hobbies.

The phrase "binders full of women" falls into the same category: it speaks to the progressive psyche in ways that the non-initiated can't possibly understand. Once again, the progressives are letting their primal fantasies choose their battles for them.
All traditionally progressive activities - from the fashion industry to modern art to comic books to pornography - rotate, like planets in a solar system, around the ultimate collective fantasy of a bound woman. Bondage in all its forms - economic bondage included - may be the only thing that holds together the otherwise incoherent elements of the eclectic progressive subculture.

Deep down in the warped labyrinth of the progressive mind, even as they self-righteously deride Mitt Romney's "binder" comment, there's likely to be found a sub cellar full of imaginary bound women: nude and wrapped in chains; some tied to a bed or a pole, others hanging from rings in the ceiling; crouching in the center of a Middle Eastern slave market or in a Planned Parenthood clinic; all set up to be used, tortured, raped - or, if the master so desires, saved and cuddled.

Wherever that fantasy takes them, these women are never imagined as fully equal individuals or informed professionals with equal pay for equal work, let alone members of NOW. They are primarily sexual objects with no intellect, self-awareness, spirit, ambitions, or plans for the future. They are walking sexual organs whose only purpose is to satisfy male (and, in certain cases, female) lewd fantasies.

Their education or expertise has no value; the only requirements are a young, voluptuous body, soft silky skin, a vagina, and two large breasts - three if it's a sci-fi setting.

Beneath the pious facade of equality and social justice, it is this subliminal primal fantasy that drives a generic activist in Mom's basement to post multiple blogs and comments designed to raise our awareness about the need to save the oppressed fair maiden from Republican shackles.

Image

But suppose the maiden is saved. Then what?

While the answer is omitted, rules of the genre allow us to reconstruct the formulaic ending: the "liberated woman" leaves the Republican dungeon for her savior's Democratic basement where she, out of eternal gratitude, forever remains his sex slave cum house maid in a fantasy sequel called "family." Living happily thereafter is an effortless bliss for as long as their political activism keeps free abortions-on-demand available as a means to alleviate threats to such "happiness."

More and more often, these deeply seated fantasies come to the surface in a continued effort to establish themselves as the new norm, working through art exhibits, fashion shows, films, comic books, or political campaigns that reveal more about their authors than most people would share in a polite company.

In this sense, the entire "War on women" is an alternative fantasy narrative, reimagining women as mindless objects to be moved around, manipulated, threatened, invaded, penetrated, cuddled, appeased, and otherwise played with - with all the drama and subtlety of a porno flick where intrigue, suspense, and character development are replaced with frontal display of "lady parts."

Image

Looking through the twisted prism of this "new norm," absurdities abound. A woman becomes merely a means to an abortion. Abortion itself becomes, not an optional surgical procedure, but an ultimate, self-sufficient goal - a necessary requirement in the power game played by the new Democrat Party.

The family becomes a repository of wrong ideas, archaic values, violence, perversity, and high-cholesterol cooking. Children become a burden on the environment and must be correctly conditioned, while parents become the scum of history and must be immediately replaced by Party-approved professionals, whose skill at social engineering will make the family a defunct nightmare.

Obviously, "binders full of women" is only an episode in the larger fantasy drama helping to alter the norm as a way to eternalize "progress" in general and certain Democrat politicians in particular.

And now they are being joined by a large influx of immigrants from another fairy-tale land that has similar attitudes towards women and a long and vibrant tradition of bondage.

Special thanks to Commissarka Pinkie, whose excellent rant - Women in Binders - inspired me to write a long comment, which later became this essay.

I saw this published on American Thinker. Its always good to see a familiar author. The most effective way to teach something is to move from the known concept that is already learned, and relate it to the unknown concept that must be taught! When you start with pornography, you've pretty much hit the lowest common denominator!

Red Square, do you have a research assistant for photographicals, or is this "art" from the stash in that shoe-box in the corner of the tractor barn?

Keep up the glorious work!

 

 

Just to close the loop Comrades, all members of Central Kommittee and Politburo want to keep Proletariat in diapers permanently. All attitudes, appetites, and consumption to be State controlled, da? Is "change" we can believe in? Or does this explain that tee shirt displaying great accomplishment of Okkupiers, "I Pooped Today"?
Any Comrades want to join me at local convenience kiosk for a 64 oz while there's still time?

Most impressive display of "Proper Understanding", Comrade Square. As newly inducted member of the Collective I look forward to additional deep thinking from your obviously fertile mind.

Seems like astute insight, Red Square, and worth considering. The offer of a free Obama phone then becomes an offer for all the phone sex a government dependent could hope for, along with a direct line to the White House, phone sex with the President or his wife. Perhaps every Government program has such an simple, overlooked link.

Red Square, your article points toward the reason the Democrats were infiltrated and have been overcome by the homosexuals mobs: they want to turn the men of this country into their women in the same manner as the Benghazi murderers did to Stevens, Isalmists do to their captives, and the men of Sodom wished to do to an angel of God who was visiting Lot.

Bravo on your article Comrade Oleg. Your point is well taken, however in your glorious article I have detected your propensity to enslave women of only one ethnic type. Please remember brother Oleg that here at the Peoplescube we are an equal oppurtunity offender. There is room in the progressive mind to pack our binders full of women of all varieties in the spirit of multiculturism. Please submit essay in future to review board to avoid embarrasing gaffe. Your Beet ration depends on it.

New comrade, don't push Red Square around. lighting will strike you faster (by mere microseconds) than Comissarka Pinkie's shovel of Justice, Knowledge, and Virtue. Image
Yes, welcome new Comrade indeed! Beet flavored koolaid! perfect for the kiddies before they build the tolerance for homemade beet vodka...
FORWARD!

Many apologies ambassador Tovarichi, I did not recognize you in that glorious fur lined cap! the ministry for correct thought has granted me a reprieve from the Siberian trenches back east. It is always good to hear from a brother comrade to bring me up to speed. Tell me, does central committee still issue those lovely 2 gram chocolate desert bars grand commisara used to horde for us? Ah, and my train mates did tell me that we are instructed to now pepper every sentence with exclamation points sparing no expense !!! You will correct me brother if my!! Punctuation ! Does not meet! Party standards!!
