She is, I'm sure, just as Drew is, by my definition. He values and respects women (and men) as people, as far as I know, and I have to imagine his daughter does, too.

The link between feminism and screaming is less clear to me.

Well, I'll give them this much credit: they sure broke free of the patriarchy on that one.

You're not including pregnant women in that assessment, are you?

Usually my good ol' dog is eager to sing the song of her ancestors, but this did not even get her to open an eye from her nap.

Thus I must give it a fail minus.

This comment nails it:

'I really want to see what is written on the second page. Did they actually need to flip the page and read, "After finishing your atonal scream, now bark like a dog."'
I know nothing about this piece, who wrote it, or who is performing it, but lots of contemporary classical music featuring extended techniques absolutely requires a score. To give you an idea of how difficult and virtuosic some of these pieces can be, here are a couple of very famous (and brilliantly performed) examples (in the first the singer has amazingly memorized it!):

It's a Belgian theatre group performing a piece about feminism, it's not a feminist group.

I don't like or understand it, therefore I must mock it, because there can be no art if it doesn't please me.

Not so fast. The teaser for the stage show looks pretty darn misogynistic.

Fair enough. He's fetocentrically feminist.

Personally, I see the conflict between Vessel and Cargo happening more post-delivery. But perhaps that's just my family.

Sure. In fairness, it's been a looooong time since I was active on RSP, but based on my back-in-the-day experience and what I've seen at a glance recently, I don't see any difference of treatment based on gender.

No, I mock it because it violates my one rule about what is or isn't art: If I am capable of doing it, it's not art.

Not to stand up for this particular work...but art as virtuosity? That kind of shit died a hundred years ago with Duchamp's urinal.

Yeah. Who needs art as virtuosity? Note the half dozen women in this chamber orchestra, including solo violinist Susannah Yoko Henkel. It's also Mozart, so it's the shit instead of kind of shit.

I just saw this thread and feel like I missed a great discussion!

To quote a great Vulcan, "Fascinating!"


All I can think of is.

This is what I hear when any woman starts fussing.

I wonder if they scream like that in bed?

Why are they barking like dogs? I sort of like it!!

What the heck does it prove??
