Eve and the Identity of Women: 6. The Old Testament, Women, & Evil

Eve and the Identity of Women: 6. The Old Testament, Women, & Evil | Sex History | Scoop.it

It is important to understand that the story told in Genesis about Eve and the serpent has a larger religious and political context which is the real historical struggle waged by the prophets of Yahweh and the indigenous Canaanite cult of Baal. Baal, who appears to have arrived in Canaan with the Phoenicians, was the son and consort of the Mother Goddess Asherah.


Baal was primarily a fertility god and appears not only in the form of a man and a bull (like his father 'El), but also in the form of a serpent. By stressing through these forms his potency and virility, Baal represents the masculine element, and serves as the fertilizing, life-giving, and life-renewing aspect through whom the Mother Goddess fulfills her functions.

The gorgeous vintage S&M of trailblazing pornographer Jacques Biederer | Sex History | Scoop.it
 
Jacques Biederer’s erotica is unique for a few reasons. The Czech photographer began his Parisian career in 1913 doing G-rated portraits, but then moved to more prurient subject matter—though still fairly “conventional” sexy materials for the day—ladies in their underwear, really. Then Biederer moved more toward full-on classical nudes, sometimes with couples, sometimes shot “on location” outdoors or on a carefully arranged set. Then he got into fetish photography—whips, domination, corseting,

I think reclaiming a word is a good thing.  See the work of Jacques Derrida: words are only important as there meanings relate to other words.  They're nonsense sounds until we make them mean something.
