My Original Essay about Molly Young has been removed as UNFIT was Kind enough to point out a Ton of Problems with it, which I will take this Opportunity to blame on my Youth and inXperience at the Time of Writing the Essay. Since I wrote Molly Young is Sxe and Andrea Coates is a BAD FEMINIST, the Two Essays critiqued by UNFIT, my Feminarky has evolved Considerably. For this Reason I have written a New Essay articulating the Points from the Original which I thought Worth salvaging.
MOLLY YOUNG is Sxe
MARIE CALLOWAY is Sxe
A Literary Seductress
All Fame Whore
How do we know that Marie Calloway's Adrian Brody is not Worthy, as Literature ( but rather Only as an Xample to Other Young Ladies of the Kind of Art the Patriarchy wants us to create ), of the Accolades being pressed upon it?
From Adrian Brody
My first impression of him after noting he was bald and wearing a navy polo like he said was that he seemed awkward and out of place. He was carrying a black shopping bag which added to this feeling somehow. He seemed strange and clumsy. This reassured me, like he was actually what I had imagined and hoped he would be.
As I tried to convey above with the Line it’s not the Sxe Photo that is a Challenge to Patriarchy: it is the Sxe Photo in juxtaposition to the Content of the Literary Essay, using Sx Appeal to sell Writing, as a Young Lady Literary Writer, Only works to challenge the Patriarchy ( which is what Marie Calloway thinks she is up to ) and garner Respect for the Artist as an Artist ( which is what Marie Calloway thinks she deserves ) if their Literary Writing is Top Notch before the Hook-up Gossip and Hot Shots come in. As Well as being called the Nxt Big Thing, Marie Calloway is facing a Lot of Heat from the Web Public - People putting her down, calling her Sxist Names, etc - that could have been avoided, I think, if Adrian Brody had been released as a Solid Work of Literature, not just a Half-Baked, Derivative Confession unWorthy of its Supposed "Literary" Acclaim. It's not that I'm condoning these inSults - I don't think Any Girl should be shamed for her Use of her Sxuality - it's that when SomeOne called Marie Calloway the Nxt Big Thing in Literature, this was insulting to All the Young Ladies out there who are Better Writers but don't post Pictures of themSelves with Cum on their Face. Also, I've found that I've been posting Pictures, like this One, of mySelf fingering mySelf while fingering you, for Years without People swarming to insult me ( Web Critics are Sharks ) and I infer that this is because there is Little Room to doubt, in reading my Work, I'm an Xceptionally Talented Writer: Insults based in my Use of Sxual Imagery have no Power to diminish me as an Artist, and so the Sharks don't even try ( they Only ever go for your Weakest Point: my "Narcissism," my being "Delusional," but Mostly they give me the Silent Treatment, because they know, subConsciously, I suppose, Silence in Face of my outRageouness, which demands a reAction, upsets me Most ). My Sx Appeal is the Cherry on the Cake of my Literary IdEntity, as opposed to the Cake itsSelf and this protects me as a Literary Artist from the Legions of Sharks who would shame "just anOther Hot Chick." I'm not just anOther Hot Chick. Meanwhile, her Sx Appeal is "Marie Calloway's" Cake ( the Pseudonym refers to Marie Antoinette, so, let's let Marie Calloway eat it, shall we? ): Tao Lin's Chosen Token Lit Slut's Lit Fame hinges More on the Fact that she's Sxe, she's had Sx with Some New York Blog Guy, and People's Want to hear about Others People's Sx Lives, than it does on Any Accomplishment in the Way Words are put together in a Sentence, which makes her Fame ... not so Literary ... More "Voyeuristic as seen through the Lens of Writing," Bad Writing, like 50 Shades of Grey Bad.
Marie Calloway has what Balzac referred to as "Drawing Room" Celebrity - its More about who she associates with ( Tao Lin and "Adrian Brody" ) than what she's written. On her Blog and in Adrian Brody, however, Marie Calloway implies that Peeps condescend to her Literary Talents because she is a Girl who writes about Sx. Well, Marie Calloway, if you are willing to take the Advice of a Fellow 20 Some-Odd Feminist onLit Writer / Porn Artist, pay Attention to the Craftsmanship of your Prose and you will see, Accordingly, what happens to the Amount of Respect you get for your Literary Talents, no Matter how Many Nudes you post or which Men you choose to shag.
Marie Calloway's Work is Feminist in that she is xpressing her Feminine Perspective through Art, but her Feminism is yet underDeveloped. Marie Calloway is still Largely Passive and Receptive to Other People's Opinions of her and her Work - Only just getting to Active in Terms of creating her Own Opinions / imPressions of Society and Self. Marie Calloway's Tendency to post More Quotes and Photos and Essays created by Others than her Own Work on her Blog is Endemic of her a Lack of a Fully-Formed / Unique Feminist IdEntity.
So, in becoming Lit Famous onLine when and how she did, to Men's Advantage Primarily, Marie Calloway was a Feminist Fruit plucked before it Fully ripened. Marie Calloway reminds me of Rain from Bret Easton Ellis' Imperial Bedrooms: though her Artistic Aspirations are Real, these are Repeatedly squandered by the Selfish Men in Positions of Power who help her to achieve these Artistic Aspirations Only in return for Sx and submission, which she gives. This is to say that because Marie Calloway's Sense of Self still relies on the Attention and Favors of Men More Powerful than her, Men have capitalized on her Art, which xpresses this Lack of a Fully-Formed Self, as this Sorta-Feminist-emPowered-but-not-Really Art works to these Men's Benefit: Men have thrust Marie Calloway into the LimeLight above All Other Young Ladies on the InterNet toDay that her inComplete / Passive / Highly-Sxualized Idea of what Feminism is be emulated because it is Easier for the Patriarchy to deal with than a Form of Feminism like my Own, for Xample, which, even though More Sxually Brazen than Marie Calloway's, in Tandem xpresses an Ambition and Self-Possession we've come to see, under Patriarchy, in its Confidence and its Passion, as the purView of Men.
This is how Marie Calloway's Earnestly Feminist Intentions have been compromised: she is a Puppet Feminist, too Young and lacking in Self-Confidence to call out the ( Right ) Men around her on their conDescension. Stephen Elliot, with The Rumpus, for Xample, did an interView with Calloway after the Release of Adrian Brody, then hired her to do her Own interView with Momus. Now, Xactly what the Fuck Kind of a Message is that supposed to send when Momus, Fifty Some-Thing, according to Marie Calloway herSelf in Adrian Brody, told her about "being in love with this 18 year old girl over the internet"? "Hey Young Ladies! - sleep with a Successful Man Twice your Age, write about it in Lurid Detail ( in Fact, take a Picture of the Cum on your Face so we know you Really did it ), and we'll give you a Job interviewing Other Successful and Perverted Men, how does that sound?" Marie Calloway's Career Ark also strikes me as Similar to Josépha's from Cousin Bette: her Artistic Talents cultivated by Men for their Sake, in a Patriarchally-Limited Idea of Freedom, the Courtesan begins hopping from One Man to anOther in an Attempt to find the One with the Most Resources to offer her in Return for her inFamous Sxual Favors. So, do you think Stephen Elliot hired Marie Calloway because a ) he wants to fuck her, b ) he wants to encourage More Young Ladies to sx their Ways to a Literary Career, c ) he wants to stick it to "Adrian Brody," or, d ) he thinks Marie Calloway's Writing is "Fresh" ?
In her Literary Work, Marie Calloway bemoans the Position of the Young Girl in the World toDay, but she does Little to noThing to change this Position, rather, she benefits from it, invalidating her Very Legit Complaints and accounting for Much of the Pity People feel for her. She thinks she's breaking Boundaries writing about her Affair with Mr. "Brody" and having Tao Lin publish it, but Really, we've seen Young Girl sleeps with Famous Man, gets Famous a Million Trillion Times, and we've seen Famous Man promotes Derivative Work of Sxe Younger Lady to make himSelf look Cool just as Many. It would have been Far More Subversive if a Young Man had written Meryl Streep about a Lady Blogist and then had yet anOther Famous Lady Writer publish it on her Lit Blog.
Maybe Nxt Time
Either Way, Marie Calloway's Label as Young Lady Lit Star is an inFlated One. Calloway has been elevated to a Position she is not Ready for, she did not ask for, and she does not seem to want.
But guess what?
Feminism can be and still is xploited by Patriarchy to Patriarchy's Advantage
Marie Calloway is 22. I'd say that's too Young to tell what Kind of an Artist she'll be ( a Flash in the Pan of GirlKore? A Warning to Young Aspiring Feminists? Will she write a Novel? A Work of "Confessional Literature"? Journalism? Memoir? Will she turn her Zuihitsus into Meaningful Feminist Tracts? or just get married in 5 Years [ you remember that Post? I remember that Post ]? ). We shall see.
Me, though, s'All here, yo.
S'All made Crystal Clear
P.S. - Marie, Marxism?
