DENYING THE EXISTENCE OF A WOMAN MEANS DENYING THE EXISTENCE OF MAN

The community is an aggregation of associates which establish rules of coexistence for a quiet life. It is known as within it, be it of humans or animals, already widely tested in its time, and over and over, even with families of mice, the researchers realized that with the passage of time the latter, despite being animals, they developed real hierarchy systems: distinction between sex and roles to be filled, with absolute prevarication of a real one “Capo” on another. Deputies to the role of proliferation and food assistance only, they are the females showing however on the whole real human habits. This is also why, and hats, they are valuable animals used for laboratory experiments. And the gratitude towards them is so great that in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk a memorial to the laboratory rat was erected..

.

Assumption of the human community, for millennia - which evidently does not differ so much from that of certain animal species -, it was the formation of hierarchical scales with their own role, to reach, unlike the animal class, the formation of a real company, with systems of law and coexistence, albeit stratified, add, civil, which gave rise to culture and progress, in the development of the community, therefore respecting the identity of the subject in general, of any sex, and that in this regard it is not one res as Roman society understood, or the last lowest stratum of the population, but who enjoys equal rights and duties without any distinction.

.

If of roles, and then, you want to discuss, women as a gender also erroneously considered more fragile and weak, in general, in civil society, it was the protagonist of a long and vast path of real emancipation, as well as ethical and social redemption, reaching the equation in all or almost to man. From the conduct of “domestic outbreak”, to the growth of the offspring, to work duties, until today the coverage of international political roles of clear stature and of the highest level. The woman has "imposed" herself with a spirit of self-denial and determination in civil society. It's here, it would be enough to remember incidentally that the first president of the European Parliament was a great female figure, Madama Simone Veil.

.

However, the epithet of fragile, which is an index of the weaker sex, it stuck to her almost like a tattoo, to remind man - or perhaps in this sense, better to use the term male - who can act boldly and often to his detriment with the utmost prevarication, abusing and perpetrating violence against it.

.

If the eastern society, well structured in the laws and culture based on the Islamic cult in the more rigid and restrictive implementation of the Sharia, it confines the woman to an inferior position, compared to the western one, resulting in the Taliban ethnic minority that deprives it of any subjective right, and which has recently taken control of an entire state, l’Afghanistan, do not forget that the East is no different, you want as a result of the failure of their own culture, you want excessive freedom of movement, commits heinous crimes of real femicide, without obeying any Taliban authority, but only to the reckless criminal selfish sense of some men.

.

Art understood as the most immediate reflection of society, as always, it is a communication tool par excellence and invites us to discover what the interpretation of the times has conveyed regarding what has just been written. From the passive appearance of the female presence on the canvases of masters of various eras, up to the active one of artists who have been able to transmit their own message, even if they are lucky or unfortunate, through the works of their own invoice. Amata, idolized as a beauty-holder Venus, like a goddess of prosperous procreative fertility; from the spiritual essence to the sensual and bewitching one, sweetness and temptation, virtuosity and generosity, altruism and solidarity, protection and apprehension (…) thrust and engine of the world. Filled with them are the Art Galleries of the female subject immortalized on the canvas or the Glyptotecs which represent her as the wisest or most sensual exponent of the Olympic Parade, later passed down to the Christian repertoire as the Virgin, Mother of Christ, and as the most emblematic figure of holiness or as a distinguished noblewoman or as a simple humble and dignified commoner.

.

The history of art has always told us about the female universe as the greatest inspiration for the artist, since the earliest times, transmitting to us the interpretation and role that women have assumed over the centuries. The social function of art, Today more than ever, does not betray its dissemination mission of creating works of any technique punctually assigned to iconographic reportage rather than textual chronological reporting to inform and sign what the world lives and breathes.

.

How many adjectives could define the woman who has not already made the repertoire of art history of all cultures from centuries to today? Non sono di parte. But I cannot help but consider some terrifying aspects of the serious plagiarism and crime that afflicts our Western and Eastern civil society still in the millennium of telematic speed., where everything is at the speed of light like a crime to all humanity?! If in fact it is the media that inform us of the disasters perpetrated in the East to women and children, in the execution of a fanatical and rigid intolerance and submission to a faith, created by man's own blindness, of an unspeakable squalid, indescribable “community” which has not developed any criteria or rules, that may appear with the name of the company, not to mention the assigned civilian, which is the Taliban one; a community on earth that does not consider woman as simply Being can still insist? Imagine recognizing a role for it!

.

Totally hide it from a cloak and the so-called burqa to want to mortify the body and any material and expressive features of a face, entirely darkened, in fact, it means denying its very existence. Ma è altresì palese che negare l’esistenza della donna significa negare l’esistenza stessa dell’uomo. These individuals realize in their utopian criminal schizophrenia that without a woman there is no one “be” nefarious like them would never have come into the world even to carry out such a crime? On the other hand and parallel to this sort of aberrant genocide, it is consumed in the West, albeit with a dripping effect, un perpetuo e altrettanto vergognoso crimine di negazione assoluta della sua esistenza mediante il femminicidio con cadenza quasi mensile operato da quella che invece definiamo società civile. It is the same civil society that consumes and abuses in an equally ruthless way the brutality of these crimes through the means of the media that spread them, through real ones format complete with investigations and reconstructions, giving the audience a “cinema of terror” with a lot of commentators guests who say “their” nell’accrescimento di uno spettacolo dell’orrore.

.

And motives, spesso deputati alla sfrenata voglia egoistica di una forma malata di possesso by the male, they cannot exist, it is easier to talk about causes, which among others are of extreme anthropological and intellectual decadence of a society devoid of any form of pietas and Christian ethics. This society is based on unbridled consumerism, not evolving, but it appears immobile and frozen in the sterility of values ​​and in the growth of a banal physical appearance, superficial, as well as the interpreters themselves (artists) of our time they communicate to us through their works, they replace the great beauty of nature, of the soul and heart, reminding us that society is heading towards a complete and absolute decline.
