Asked author of this post what she meant by it. Here is her answer:
simply that i feel it is unfair when female writers and artists have their own work invalidated because if it is “too” confessional or something yet male writers have been spilling their guts out for years and being praised for their garbage writing. also the idea that the male artist & his “muses” is a valuable, see even okay thing when i find the idea of muses repulsive and insulting to women & our work. simple. sorry you didn’t like the post, but it’s in no way insulting to anyone except shitty male artists who get praised for nothing. it was meant to call out that bullshit and empower women to feel their art is valid in any way and to be free to express themselves however personally or confessionally as theyd like because womens emotions are as valid if not even more important to hear because we don’t hear enough of it.
I never said I didn’t like your post, I was just confused - upon rereading it - about what you actually meant by it.
Also as someone who is spiritual, who believes in fairies, the notion of ‘muses’ is one that speaks to me. Yes it sucks that women artists are so easily dismissed when male artists who have been “inspired” by women get a career. But I believe in sacred female energy - no matter what body it resides in - and I think it can be an inspiring force in a female-identified artist’s life.
Anyway yeah. I guess thanks for agreeing to start a bit of a dialogue with me on this matter and making all these questions pop up in my head. I don’t mean that you should change your mind or your words. I simply wanted to offer a bit of a counterpoint.
Cempasuchil (Zempoalxóchitl in Nahuatl) or flor de muertos (flower of the dead) is an essential part of the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico. It is placed in our altares or ofrendas to guide the spirits of our deceased loved ones back home. It is a greeting, the kiss we will not be able to give them anymore…
