The question on the table amongst men on the Men's Page is probing into how we see women venturing into what many feel should remain the exclusive domain of masculinity: professional body building.

There is an aerial shot of Cindy Landolt sitting in a chair, head down. Her thick black hair covers her face at an angle. She is in a nice bikini and all of her muscles are tensed showcasing a developed body of tanned muscle. It is a sexy pose typical of a woman sitting in way to seduce and attract men. But, it doesn't work for a lot men. Hear what they say without the presence of women, like Oprah, getting in the way of how men really feel, think and respond to stimuli.

The moderator simplified the whole process of thoughtful reaction, and gut churning reaction with a question in the vernacular of the times: "Would you BLAZE it?" That means have sex with her?

First man: "You know what the problem is so many men on here want to judge and talk about this woman, because this woman have muscle and her body mass is muscular, but then today she still a woman and she still beautiful so hell yeah I'll get it on with her."

Second man: "If I want to lay down with a woman that looks like a man by the body. I may as well just turn gay. And that's not me taking a poke at gay people I'm just saying I want my woman to look like a woman."

Third man: "Never....its unnatural....he man...made her self ugly her self....so no issue in saying it she is artificial n ugly....Its against nature."

Fourth man: "I would try it those pussy muscles are strong ass hell!"

Fifth man said, " I can hear her now saying .....Oh I'm cumming in a scary old man voice."

Sixth man said, "I feel like if you said no she gone blaze you lmfao. that's fucking disgusting tho."

There were a lot of comments about how they would have sex with her, what were the possible ways she could beat them up. Did she squirt and if so would squirting deflate her muscle mass? There was curiosity that meant they'd have sex with her to see what it would be like. One man like many fear a sex change happened in the course of the woman's workouts, and women like her that changed her into a man, or some sort of a man. All, and all, not a man was concerned about, cared, or was interested in her soul.

Another man said what most men feel. " I couldn't, women are supposed to be soft."

We have all read or seen interviews about this sport: fitness training and bodybuilding. I am not going to balance the conversation with the opinions women hold on this subject, nor will I interject the conservative notions of religious women on the subject, or the more liberal type of women who pride themselves invading the domains of men. I won't intervene on behalf of women to say things that will charge women with the sense I am in touch with my feminine side, and God, no! I will not venture into the whole gay thing that insists on finding ways into discussions about male/female dynamics!

Men have barber shops, titty bars, and cigar bars left as the exclusive domain for men only. Women will find their way into our spaces, but they are regulated to the fringes because men, we need our own spaces to feel the world in the context of strong masculinity unfiltered and monitored by our women, and social norms that too often violate the sacredness of what is and needs to be manhood! 

For the men who like to golf, or fish or hunt or girl watch we like to bring our sons with us to experience the activities shared with our flesh and blood who will grow up aching to grope girls, and screw women who have a hold on something every real man wants, and thinks about. Our boys don't need to be around feminine men to be men. Their fathers will teach them about protecting the weak as the relationship between fathers and sons carries out its tasks and has adventures.

Our sons need to feel what real men are, and what that energy is for without explanations and definitely without the complaints and judgment from the likes of people like Oprah banging in our heads like pots on pans about what they think a man should be. Boys need to know what to fight for, and who to fight and who he should lay his life down for as a man when and if the need arises from the clinches of war, and life's conflicts. A boy needs to learn how to steal to be able to spot a thief. A man may have to kill someone so a father takes him on that journey. A boy needs to learn how and when to kill, and needs to learn healing modalities to restore life.

A boy needs his father to emulate and a father needs to pass down to his son all he learned and to show his son how to be himself, be a man and take care of his mother and be a brother to his sisters. A boy needs to learn how to love from his father after the years of his mother showering him with her love. A boy needs to learn how to love like a man who loves himself and how to love women. A boy needs to learn what is gentle and soft as a man feeling the texture of the woman he loves returning her love for him to his soul. A boy needs to learn how to seduce a woman, and provide for her and learn how to manipulate in the world those who need to be manipulated and how to be honest in a corrupted world. A boy needs to know how to give another man an ass whipping when he asks for one and how to repair broken relationships. A man needs to learn that at some point, for the sake of his family how to negotiate with the devil to get what he needs.

How does a boy protect? He learns to develop the impulse within him from his father and the men his father gathers around him. A man is his friends.

Balancing the elements, feminine and masculine, within a man comes along with each of the above listed endeavors. It is a learned practice taught from the priest-craft of a boy's uncles, grandfathers and his father. When it is time for a woman to be a part of this the father will let both son and wife know when it is time, and who else is to come in and contribute to the process of his son ascending into his manhood!

A found Voice!

A Black woman, who speaks from powers within, with Power to forces against the resistance to subjugation without hesitation fears no one. There isn't a worthy opponent. There is only the wrong to be unwritten, the foul deeds turned over to show their underbelly and there are the Hunters, the fighters capable of administering the death blow!

These are my words!

80 years: HIS struggle for the People.

Geronimo, Apache chief. Quelle homme.

Apache chief Geronimo (1829-1909) was born in the upper Gila River country of Arizona. Although he harbored animosity toward the Mexican soldiers who killed his wife and children, he also grew to dislike the Anglo-Americans who took over the region following the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. After his Chiricahua Apaches were forced onto Arizona’s San Carlos Reservation in the mid-1870s, Geronimo led his followers on a series of escapes that bolstered his legend and embarrassed the U.S. government. He surrendered to General Nelson Miles in 1886, and remained a celebrity in captivity until his death at Oklahoma’s Fort Sill. ~ anon 

IN the Depths WE Know.

I am therefore we are.

Embracing one's self becomes an art after the arduous task of arising from the lowest esteem childhood should not have given an individual. The country we live in boasts of its potential to take life with its many weapons and tactics of war with no simplification. There is war, and rumors of more war behind the stamina a warmonger has in a competition with lust a whoremonger has crawling within his or her body. The lack of beauty in a desire is the loss of soul given up, not for adoption, but abandoned by basic misunderstanding of what is basic to life: how to love, and why we love.

God may have made us, but we choose to believe in whatever myth comforts our angst the further we stray from the fundamental elements of truth, and Creation, as was made by what is beyond who we can possibly associate as God. It is our belief in God that stifles us. It is discovering the balance within the Goddess that comes with the Goddess that releases us from the pendulum of trading places with the knowledge of Ma'at's feather, not to judge, but receive the touch of what whispers to us constantly, "I am Life! I am Life! Mother without Father is imbalance leaving a craving for that balance and a return to what works for the I AM."

It is in us all.

Salma Hayek Jiménez (born September 2, 1966) is a Mexican and American film actress, director and producer. I have been unable to recover from the sensuous dance she did in the middle of the Tarantino film about vampires! Everything she did in that scene revolved in a continuous swirl not yet to have left me when her face comes on a screen.

Without delving into either Salma Hayek, or any other woman from Central America there are the questions about fairness to be answered beginning with: "Is it fair to be so wealthy a nation, and feel no connection with neighboring countries adversely affected by your military and economic policies?" - Gregory E.

Walking in Beauty!

Walking In Beauty (Blessing)

Today I will walk out, today everything unnecessary will leave me, ...
I will be as I was before, I will have a cool breeze over my body.
I will have a light body, I will be happy forever,
nothing will hinder me.
I walk with beauty before me. I walk with beauty behind me.
I walk with beauty below me. I walk with beauty above me.
I walk with beauty around me. My words will be beautiful.

In beauty all day long may I walk.
Through the returning seasons, may I walk.
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk.
With dew about my feet, may I walk.

With beauty before me may I walk.
With beauty behind me may I walk.
With beauty below me may I walk.
With beauty above me may I walk.
With beauty all around me may I walk.

In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk.
In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk.
My words will be beautiful.

Military service changes and shifts sexual energies in men and women. It is dangerous for women like Amy, who see advantages in sexual prowess. It is dangerous for men who take advantage of women like Amy. This round of effort to be nasty with each other, and maintain a sense of decorum is a round about way women and men dance with each other denying on one hand that the genders can be civil when in fact war and aggression stir sexual energies. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories (Jan. 22, 2017)

Hats have their way of creating and adding to a woman's mystique the way clothes are the mystique of a woman's body. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories 1.2.17

"Each woman comes center stage into the limelight as herself. 'As herself' can extend between who she dreamt, and created as who she is, and who she actually is. Either way it is all creation, and creativity bringing women into the arts requires authenticity, and commitment to their art. Fame is a by-product of attempts made to be in upper echelons of one's field, and what it takes to be the best at what you do as art, and for the love of doing it better and better each time you get a chance. Fame ask one thing: be prepared." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories Jan. 25, 2017

Octavia Spencer attended the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards show. She is too fine! No, she is a bit beyond fine! What an impeccable spirit she has as a woman and an actress. It is unbelievable how utterly beautiful and physically flawless she is! I look at her and hear her talk and she is speaking from within substance, and I wonder within and aloud, "My Goodness, where'd she come from!!"

Well, that is how I react seeing her on television, or the big screen; even in the small Aunt Jemima roles she has played I remember being struck by her core. It is the core coming outwards that matches her profound beauty! That's what it is! - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories [Jan. 25, 2017]
