What is now Classy- the Class definition –

Speech can segregate you  from everyone- by  Chris Ritchey

Speech can segregate you from everyone- by Chris Ritchey

Having been bombarded on the blog with searches for “TiTs on the River- Lorain” (post on Rover Fest 2014)

https://thatwoman.wordpress.com/2014/08/10/freedom-of-speech-usa-really-pt-3/
and the sharing of such things as a “ Twerk Fest” on local face book pages I realized this new “classy behavior” has left me, along with a few other dinosaurs, sinking into the tar pits of time .

Class the definition from the Urban Dictionary
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=class

CLASS
A person who is poised, graceful, mature, or exudes any of these qualities in dress, mannerism, language, and everyday life. Possesses excellent self-control, is gentle, soothing, and unoffensive.

Also used to refer to people or styles from the past; when copied, general impression of others upon seeing them is “classy”, a reference to all things classic or that have class.

1. She was the epitome of class in the way she carried and presented herself.

2. They all agreed that the man who paid unwavering attention to his escort and stayed by her side all night had an unprecedented amount of class.

3. Audrey Hepburn.

Audrey Hepburn who says the beauty of woman is in her eyes not the shaking of the gluttonous maxi-bums to the delight of panting males and wishful thinking. Brings to mind the postcards of my youth

wishful

No! I am too old for the twerking and the tits brigade , even my beautiful daughter is joining me in the tar pits along with, I would think, a lot of the grand daughters of other dinosaurs. Flyer’s as the one below though are stating “no age limit” and High Schools welcome – Vision conjured up in my head of old men getting their thrills watching young girls “twerking” for a prize of 500 dollars.

fest

Is this the community standard by which we now judge Lorain and not ONLY Lorain , the objectification of young women ? Who am I to judge? I came from the time before this time when we burned our bras for equality and not objectification !!!

burning bras
It was NOT because we wanted to display our mammary glands on top of some man’s shoulders in order to wave them about so a DJ could toss a few freebie tickets at you- ” You have lost the plot and the point “ladies?”

RoverFest 2014

My mother’s time when women tried to raise ourselves out of the classification of only good for child rearing and keeping men happy!

Is this yet another male ploy perhaps to keep women in their “twerking place”?

Ironically, the venue once a standard of community and faith in and of itself has morphed to this sort of “entertainment” – Their NAME prominently displayed on the flyer. Knights of St. John !
Knights logo
Wonder what the “old” Knights ( of St. John)

WHO WE ARE? A men’s semi-military fraternal organization concerned with protecting and promoting the Catholic Faith and our parish.
WHAT ARE OUR OBJECTIVES?
To promote fellowship within and to aid, assist and support whomever is in need.

would have to say as to the use of their hall.

The current owner of the hall 1620 Kansas Avenue, according to the Lorain County Auditors site:
Horn, Ryan
CAMERON PROPERTIES LLC and according to the Secretary of State the LLC tracks back to RYAN HORN – 401 EAST ERIE AVENUE LORAIN,OH 44052
Effective Date: 10/14/2014 Contact Status: Active
Voters in this ward 2 of Lorain will remember him – he ran for our councilman just 11 days ago .

Community Standards lost???? but youth progression????? opportunities for everyone???? a platform for inclusion

Sorry have to dash now – the tar pits beckon
