The real horror of Black Widow #MommyWidow

If I hear another person use the term Mommy Widow to discuss Natasha Rominov I’m going to scream. Here’s the skinny kids. To be a woman is to be what you want. Wanna be a mom, awesome. Don’t? I totally support that. Wanna go to the moon? Stay at home with your babies? Get a PhD? Whatever you want, you have the right to go for it without someone telling you you can’t because of your genitalia. This is the crux of the feminist movement, that we, as a gender, should have the right to CHOOSE for ourselves the life we want to lead and how we want to do it. Society at large has denied women those choices for centuries – millenia even. The horror of Black Window’s story isn’t that she wants to have kids and can’t. It’s not that she falls in love or that she has sex and uses her sexuality as a tool. (and remember all the avengers have love stories Iron Man/Pepper Potts, Thor/Natalie Portman, Captain American/Agent Carter) The real horror is that her CHOICE was taken away from her. A crime was committed against not just her as a person by against women on the whole because of the societal and institutional assumption that her body is something to be owned and dictated. It’s a crime of forced sterilization, which is no better than the crime of rape, clitorectomies or forced marriages. But as with all the other horrors she endures and dolls out as a spy, Natasha is more than what has been done to her, she makes the choice to... read more

“Religion In Fantasy Fiction & The Clockmaker God” Guest Post from Jeremy Rodden #MondayBlogs

As a student of religion (BA in Religion, 2003), I often look for the religious elements in anything I read. Even though I graduated from a Catholic university (La Salle in Philadelphia), I was fortunate that my collegiate education in religion exposed me to courses in a wide array of beliefs, including Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and even Native American mythology. I wrote my senior thesis on the effect of Quaker beliefs on our criminal justice system. My personal exploration of religion carried me into realms of neo-paganism, Wicca, and other Eastern philosophies.   All of this religious study has exposed me to a diverse selection of religions. Yet, when people ask me what religion I am, I generally answer none of the aforementioned practices. I tell people that I am a deist. More on this later.   I love the use of religion in fantasy stories, and that is probably why those are my favorite genres. Sometimes, the allusions to an author’s religious beliefs are very overt. Most readers who have enjoyed The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis understand the series to be a Christian allegory. Even if one only read the most popular of the seven books, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, it is not hard to see the parallels between Aslan and Jesus.   A little more subtly, the atheist author Philip Pullman slips his beliefs into His Dark Materials trilogy. Unlike Lewis’s very in-your-face allusions, Pullman slowly leads a reader into the death of God storyline throughout the series. The backlash from Christian organizations towards The Golden Compass‘s film adaptation is understandable for those who have read... read more
