Le « féminisme à la française », selon la sociologue Irène Théry

La chercheuse revient sur une définition qu’elle avait donné en 2011 sur une certaine façon, en France, de vivre la séduction.

Par Anne Chemin Le Monde | 

La sociologue Irène Théry a écrit en 2011 que le « féminisme à la française » était « fait d’une ­certaine façon de vivre et pas seulement de ­penser, qui refuse les ­impasses du politiquement correct, veut les droits égaux des sexes et les plaisirs asymétriques de la séduction, le respect absolu du consentement et la surprise délicieuse des baisers volés ».

Nous lui avons demandé si, aujourd’hui, elle reprendrait cette définition. Voici sa réponse.

« Oui, je la reprendrais, à la virgule près. Vous savez, il arrive que des sociologues polissent leurs phrases et c’était le cas de celle-ci, dont j’ai choyé chaque mot.

Féminisme “à la ­française” et pas féminisme “français”. Car je pensais à un seul parmi les nombreux courants parfois opposés qui coexistent en France : le ­féminisme universaliste, qui avait signalé ­quelque temps auparavant son scepticisme par rapport à la parité, un mal nécessaire certes très efficace, mais dont le risque est toujours d’essentialiser la différence entre hommes et femmes (y compris en la voyant comme le ­produit d’un conditionnement non pas naturel mais culturel) et d’enfermer chaque sexe dans une moitié d’humanité.

Un style

Or ce féminisme universaliste n’est pas ­seulement une théorie, c’est aussi autre chose, de plus impalpable : un style.

J’admire depuis toujours le chic de Mona Ozouf, si élégante comme personne, si attentive à l’écriture de ses livres et au verbe de ses conférences, témoins de la considération qu’elle porte à ses lecteurs et ­auditeurs. Un style tout de sobriété et d’une grande probité morale.

Sur le fond de la pensée, ce style consiste à ne jamais se contenter des diktats du moment, fussent-ils ­féministes, mais à rechercher toujours la justesse et la simplicité d’expression.

Seule une lucidité exceptionnelle, comme celle de Latifa Ibn Ziaten, transformant sa douleur en engagement après l’assassinat de son fils par Mohammed Merah, ou un long travail ­réflexif sur l’histoire…

10 Things You'll See in Almost Every Tim Burton Movie SExpand

We all know that Tim Burton loves pancake white makeup, black eyes, spirals and stripes — and many more he loves to feature over and over again!

You’ll see the same handful of characters, plot devices, and even facial expressions over and over again, throughout Tim Burton’s films.

We’ve rounded up some common Tim Burton tropes and sorted them into categories, for your next drinking game.

Here are 10 things that turn up in almost every Tim Burton movie.

10 Things You'll See in Almost Every Tim Burton Movie SExpand

10) The Pudgy Weasel Never trust a smiling face with a bit of weight in a Burton movie. Otho – Beetlejuice Beadle – Sweeney Todd Limbo – Planet of the Apes Tweedledee / Tweedledum – Alice in Wonderland Augustus Gloop – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Francis Buxton – Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Finis Everglot – The Corpse Bride The Penguin – Batman Returns

9) The Flashback

What better way to explain your character’s pain, than with a flashback! Emily sings about her nasty death – The Corpse Bride Ichabod Crane dreams of his busty mother’s death – Sleepy Hollow Willy Wonka has hilarious flashbacks to his sad candy-free past – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory The entire movie Big Fish is one flashback after the other Sweeney Todd remembers his flaxen-haired family before they were taken away from him – Sweeney Todd Bruce Wayne dreams of his parents – Batman Alice remembers her Wonderland past and the Hatter his Wonderland war – Alice in Wonderland

8) The Same Actors Burton loves to dip from the same well all the time. While some actors (Winona Ryder) have appeared in two or three Burton movies, these guys pop up over, and over again. Johnny Depp Helena Bonham-Carter Christopher Lee Jeffrey Jones

7) The Monster The thing that goes bump in the night. Hardly ever the main character or real menace, these monsters are built to threaten, propel or set boundaries for Burton’s cast. But each one is pretty spectacular. Oogie Boogie – The Nightmare Before Christmas The Headless Horseman – Sleepy Hollow Sand Worm – Beetlejuice Jabberwocky – Alice In Wonderland

6) The Impossibly Kind Parent Figure

Someone needs a hug! The Burton world is stuffed with insanely wonderful parent figures. That’s not to say all the other parents are bad, but for each absentee father or neurotic artist, there’s usually one elderly character ready to pick up the pieces and tuck you into a soft waterbed. The Inventor – Edward Scissorhands Peg/Bill – Edward Scissorhands Barbara/Adam – Beetlejuice Karubi – Planet of the Apes Alfred – Batman/ Batman Returns Elder Gutknecht – Corpse Bride Grandpa Joe (really the whole Bucket family) – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

5) The Witch

Whether misunderstood or just no good, Burton loves to throw in a sassy witch to stir the pot. Each one of these ladies is an intimidating creature on their own. With great powers that they use to get what they want. Angelique Bouchard – Dark Shadows Lady Van Tassel – Sleepy Hollow The Witch – Big Fish Mrs. Lovett – Sweeney Todd The Red Queen – Alice in Wonderland Catwoman – Batman Returns

4) Nightmare Face

Horrific, bug-eyed scare jumps that make the audience jump out of their chairs. You never actually get to see Michael Keaton’s “nightmare face” in Beetlejuice, but there are plenty more to pick from in that movie. Large Marge – Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Max Shreck’s Kiss with Catwoman – Batman Returns The bug-eyed witch in the woods – Sleepy Hollow Barbara rips off her face! – Beetlejuice The horrific Smilex transformation in Batman, which is also the name of the toothpaste company Charlie’s father works for in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

3) The Punky Rebellious Young Lady

The misunderstood ladies trapped in a world of their own. These rebels are often the voice of reason in Burton’s mad, mad world. Lydia Deetz – Beetlejuice Ari – Planet of the Apes Carolyn Stoddard – Dark Shadows Alice – Alice in Wonderland Sally – The Nightmare Before Christmas Emily – Corpse Bride

2) The Blonde Ingenue

The other side of the lady coin in Burton’s world. This director’s obsession with the innocent, blonde ingenue is so strong he’s be-wigged countless brunettes to get that perfect bleached from all sins look. In fact Dark Shadows might be the first Burton movie where the innocent love interest isn’t blonde (Corpse Bride doesn’t count, since Victoria’s hair was some sort of light grey). Sandra Bloom – Big Fish Katrina Van Tassel – Sleepy Hollow Kim – Edward Scissorhands Johanna – Sweeney Todd Vicki Vale – Batman Daena – Planet of the Apes The White Queen – Alice In Wonderland

1) The Skittish Outcast

Burton has built his entire career on the twitchy outcast. Edward Scissorhands – Edward Scissorhands Beetlejuice & Lydia – Beetlejuice Pee Wee – Pee Wee’s Big Adventure Mad Hatter – Alice in Wonderland Ichabod Crane – Sleepy Hollow Willy Wonka – Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Ed Wood – Ed Wood Sweeney Todd – Sweeney Todd Barnabas Collins – Dark Shadows

Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 145

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

If there is an Arab civilization then it was created during the Omayyad period since the people in that part of the Near East could comprehend and write Aramaic.  The classical Arabic language was established and spread during the Omayyad dynasty.

For the Arab Nations (about 22 States) to exist in the future they have to mind their classical language and enrich it with various modern “Arabic” slang words and expressions to be viable among the Arab people.

Have you tasted Wasabi? This Japanese green peas size condiment? I ate two of them in one setting.  I challenge you to try. One suggestion: close your nose, otherwise the vapor of pimento will blind you.

The UNSC just voted on a resolution rejecting Trump’s decision, but the US vetoed it (14-1). Let’s stand up to US bullying across the region. Next step would be the entire UN, where US will have no veto power and cannot even vote since the resolution is against it. As we say: without our membership, you role is void and Not valid 

~Dr. Gabor Maté on the Myth of “Normal” in Psychological Disorders. He explains how mental distress and pathology exists in a continuum and are largely a result of a materialist culture that rigidly “idealize individuality and ignores emotional needs,” prioritizing objects over people and well being.

I say: the responsibility of the individual is to fight for fairness and equal opportunities, against all kinds of discrimination in communities. Hating you for doing The Right thing is the ultimate in respect.

We don’t regret failing the Big Life Changes: just the tiniest changes that were feasible and had plenty of support to undertake them.

We have always attributed our reality to act of God, His will, our Destiny; we have been sons of God until recently.

God is no longer the sole and exclusive owner of man.  Research and technology is altering many genomes for a healthier man, even before he is born, even when he is a fetus, even by sorting out and selecting one among the many embryos to re-insert in the mother’s uterus.  Man has started to affect genetically future generations.  Can the religious sects leave us in peace?

Man is becoming part owner of the creation process, though with admittedly a tiny share to appease the religious clergies and tight-assed conservatives.  As long as man is Not able to tamper with the brain on a large scale, then God will still have the bigger share to man.

When you partially own a person then you are responsible for the whole entity.  

We tended to let God off the hook for too long.  If man has to be taken to court for wrong doing or designing and manufacturing defective products, then it is about time that God be taken to court after each war, each genocide, each apartheid systems of suffering and humiliation.

The Zionist movement and the various Zionist lobbies in the US and France…take arms against this “Jew hater of Jews. A Jews who criticizes the State of Israel for occupying Palestinian lands, or applying apartheid policies of discriminating among Jews and non-Jews (Goim) in Israel, differentiating among European Jews and Middle-Eastern Jews and so-called Jews from Ethiopia in higher civil services
