Women, Women In Dickinson, And My Website

I have written in several recent blog posts that my biggest motivation in creating this website was anger.  However it is the fact that there is very little to do in Dickinson that causes me to write so much, and keeps me angry.

I can not go out to bars at night and socialize in Dickinson because the police are so aggressive in stopping everyone to give them a DUI.  It is not really worth it going out to bars and restaurants at night in Dickinson anyway because most of the bartenders and servers are angry, mentally ill women who came to North Dakota because they could not obtain and keep employment where they came from.

Because of not being able to go out at night to bars and socialize, because most of the bartenders and servers are angry, mentally ill women, and because there is a shortage of women in Dickinson, I thought that it would be a good idea to hire a prostitute.  However, you can’t do this either because the police in Dickinson and Bismarck place fake advertisements for escorts on the internet so that they can arrest men when they show up for their appointment.

All I have to do with my time is read, write, work on cars and equipment, and watch television.  While reading recently, I saw a job advertisement that indicated foreign refugees were going to be relocated to Watford City, North Dakota.  More reading verified my suspicion that it would probably be Syrian refugees.  Lutheran Social Services in Minnesota and North Dakota is currently working on this.

I wrote a blog post about Muslim refugees from the Middle East being relocated to western North Dakota on my website.  I thought that it was interesting and funny.  Western North Dakota sucks so bad already for me, the other out of state workers, the red-necks, and the white trash, everybody is already angry.  I can’t wait to see this anger explode when Lutheran Social Services starts bringing the Muslim Syrian refugees to live next to and work next to, the mean North Dakotans, and the angry red-necks and white trash.

I looked on the internet for an appropriate image to include with my blog post about the Syrian refugees relocating to western North Dakota.  (I just got done telling you, no, I don’t have anything better to do.)  In general, paintings are no longer protected by copyright law once the artist has been dead for seventy years.  What I look through, are paintings from the 1400s through the early 1900s because I can use these paintings as illustrations without having to pay for their use, they are no longer copyright protected. I like these paintings anyway for a number of different reasons.  I want to explain several things about the Muslim and Arab paintings of harem women and slave women.

In the 1600s through the early 1900s, many excellent European painters traveled to the Middle East to observe, study, and paint harem women and slave women.  The wealthy Arabs, Muslims, Berbers, and Turks very often kept harems and slave women, many of them were white women.  I believe that many of these white women ended up as captives because “they were at the wrong place, at the wrong time.”

I believe that what I am writing about these harems and women slaves, is not registering with some of the women that are reading this.  They may think of this with notions of romance and adventure.  I am not using the term “slave” in a figurative way, I do literally mean “slave”, as in not being able to leave and being held against their will.  After looking at many different harem women and slave women paintings, it is clear to me that these women were treated the same as animal property, the same as horses.

One of my favorite painters is John William Waterhouse, an English painter who lived from 1849 to 1917.  Most of the paintings on my website are by John W. Waterhouse.  To me, his paintings are clearer than photographs.  Though he may have created one hundred famous paintings, you can see that he chose to use the same five women models.  Many of John W. Waterhouse’s paintings show women that are partially or completely nude.  I am sure that his five favorite women models had no objection to modelling nude for him.  All of the women in his paintings have dignity and free-will, whether they are a young water nymph, a courtesan, a priestess, or a goddess.

The European painters that traveled to the Middle East to paint the harem women and slave women, their paintings show women that are not voluntarily modelling nude, they show women that are accustomed to remaining unclothed for long periods of time, because they are required to do so.   These paintings do not show women with dignity or free-will, they show women that are captives, though they often seem or appear accustomed to their situation.  Often times, these harem women are shown with exotic pets that are normally wild animals, such as lions, cheetahs, and parrots.  Though the wealthy Arabs and Turks did have exotic pets like lions and cheetahs, these animals that are normally free, are required to lounge around in captivity, just like the captive women.  The harem women and the slave women shown in the paintings, are not much different than the exotic pets lounging with them, they are all captives, and animal property.

Many of the women in Dickinson act shitty and hostile toward white men.  I want to point out that if it weren’t for the white men, women would most likely end up being treated as slaves and kept as animal property.  Everything that is being done to undermine white Christian men, will probably result in all women everywhere losing all of their rights within the next fifty years.  Look at how women are treated in the Middle East, the Far East, and Latin America.  The more that white Christian men become a minority, the more that women undermine white Christian men, the sooner the culture and values of the Middle East, the Far East, and Latin America will inevitably take away all the freedom and equality that women have.
