A lot of my writing is about violence, and it has been so for years. It is one of the reasons why I find so much of the stuff on art nude gratuitous .. girls with guns and swords. Usually girls and their photographers from relatively safe cultures (I know that some of the older men who take photographs are vets) but, basically, people who think weapons are cool, but have no real idea of what they do to bodies.
Sex and violence always go together .. violence because of sex .. shame, honour, showing off, getting off on it .. sex is maybe intrinsically an act of violence .. penetration, rough sex .. 'passion' means hurt. When you read eyewitness accounts of genocide or massacre one of the things you notice over and again, though it tends not to make it into the official story, is how much violence is directed speciically against genitalia .. lethal violence, I mean .. cutting it off, pushing something into it ..
Almost anything can be a weapon, the most natural things, a natural stone, a branch, and so can a lot of body parts .. head butts, hands and feet, knees and elbows; any of them can be lethal.
Sometimes it seems like an equation that just doesn't balance. All those years it takes to make a life, 9 months carrying .. all the years of raising teaching and loving .. and it's wiped out in a second, by someone who never knew the person they killed. I would say 'and never gives them a second thought' but that doesn't seem to be the way of it .. killers do remember. There are many historic episodes of mass-killing where the best and most detailed evidence comes out, decades after the event, because the killers have to speak, they can't live with it any longer. They still have the hands they used, every day they see images of guns or knives, if not the things themselves .. if they used a rock .. and they see people every day who look just like the people they killed. They get that thing that some of us have had when we miss someone we loved .. and we see them in a street .. convinced for the moment it is them .. she walks just like x walked .. her hair is the same .. it is her
Pity the men who have wrecked women's bodies, and every woman's body that they get close to reminds them, and pity the women they sleep with, because one way or another the demons will make themselves known.
But a vulva, or a vagina, makes a poor weapon. I'm sure it's possible .. and vagina is the Latin for sheath, for a sword, which is at least ambivalent. But the thing itself is incredibly strong, and also capable of incredible softness and gentleness, and not aggressive .. intrinsically non-aggressive, intrinsically embracing, an invitation not a threat, made for love and for making life.
