"Suprihmbé is a proheaux womanist thot scholar who wants to promote freedom, is Morrison political, and likes cats."

Okay, I just learned a new word: "proheaux."

The quote in the post title is the blurb about the author of something I was reading (at Wear Your Voice), "Being Naked With My Son/My nudity does not offend my son, because he has not been exposed to trivial conversations about modesty. My nudity means nothing to him." Excerpt:
Why is my nakedness around my child an issue? Why is him seeing my genitalia in a non-sexual manner an issue? Is he worried my child is going to develop some sort of Oedipus complex? According to Freudian lore, my son being just about around 5-years-old, is in the phallic stage. Freudian psychology is heterocentric and cissexist–it deals in binaries and doesn’t take into account a spectrum of identities. For its time it was revolutionary–but science is permeated with sexist and racist men, polluted with biases.

... At this age my son is supposed to have formed some sort of erotic attachment to me. Yet here he is, playing pretend in our living room, oblivious to the projected sexual nature of our being naked and sweating in our little house.
Ah! Freud came up. I brought up Freud this morning, in the context of the hard, pointing prong of Callista Gingrich's hair, and as I did that, I was thinking, life was so much more interesting when adult conversation flowed easily into Freudian speculation. Then prissy demands for science spoiled the fluid fun. Suprihmbé seems to be saying that Freud's work was patriarchal, but the rejection of Freud's ideas for their failure to fit the rigors of science is also patriarchal, so there is perhaps something of the counter-patriarchial in restoring Freudianism, sparingly and strategically, such as in the discussion of Callista's pointy prong.

But that word! Proheaux. I looked it up and got another article by Suprihmbé: "proheauxism: a working definition." Key to understanding the coinage: Heaux is a way to spell the plural of ho. (Do you have a better idea? I wrote "the plural of ho" because I didn't.) The definition has 4 parts. I'll just quote #3:
Sex positivity for black and brown women and femmes. Specifically sex worker & trans inclusive. Might be: a professional heaux, a refined heaux, an elegant, sensual woman of divine sex. One who owns oneself, regardless if she is attached to a man or masculine person or not. One who understands and reveres the power of healthy femininity (and masculinity) and understands that this power is beyond the physical. It is political, it is economic, it is survival, it is personal. Fuck classism. Fuck respectability. Fuck the norm. Fuck free emotional labor.

But what is "Morrison political"?

"Proheaux" I could more or less figure out for myself, but I have no idea what Subprime means by "Morrison political".

A valiant attempt to see how far someone can crawl up one's own ass without self-awareness.

It would seem: pretty far.

Ann Althouse said...

What is "Morrison political"?

When I Google that, the first thing that comes up is "Mr. Jim Morrison. The Social And Political Visionary" (in HuffPo). Sample:

"In a famous interview with Tony Thomas on CBC Radio broadcast May 27, 1970, Morrison had predicted that in the coming decade, those “people who are able to assemble masses, huge masses of people into one spot, as we witnessed in pop festivals in the last two or three years” will be “the major influences on mass culture”. He called those people “connectors”. He also said he thought that the next heroes would be “a more intellectual sort. Political activists and perhaps scientists and computer experts.”"

But I'm just going to guess that Suprihmbé's Morrison is Toni Morrison. I see that there's a book called "Toni Morrison and Motherhood: A Politics of the Heart." Blurb:

"Mothering is a central issue for feminist theory, and motherhood is also a persistent presence in the work of Toni Morrison. Examining Morrison's novels, essays, speeches, and interviews, Andrea O'Reilly illustrates Morrison builds upon black women's experiences of and perspectives on motherhood to develop a view of black motherhood that is, in terms of both maternal identity and role, radically different than the motherhood practiced and prescribed in the dominant culture. Motherhood, in Morrison's view, is fundamentally and profoundly an act of resistance, essential and integral to black women's fight against racism (and sexism) and their ability to achieve well-being for themselves and their culture. The power of motherhood and the empowerment of mothering are what make possible the better world we seek for ourselves and for our children. This, argues O'Reilly, is Morrison's maternal theory-a politics of the heart."

“Heaux is a way to spell the plural of ho. (Do you have a better idea? I wrote "the plural of ho" because I didn't.)”

Tia Dalma in her multiple-form-crabs practicing Obeah magic. Aka Calypso.

“... life was so much more interesting when adult conversation flowed easily into Freudian speculation.”

This one scares me. Everyone wants easily-flowing Freud on sex.

How many of us want Freud in Freudian dreams where dreams present us with our ‘murdered selves’?

Which is the what of the wherefore that Tia Dalma did for Davey Jones and his murdered self and his cut out heart. Calypso is a bitch in truth-telling. I love her. But, I’ll stick less with Sigmund, and more with Jung on dreams.

SeanF said...

The quoted definition uses "heaux" in the singular ("...a professional heaux, a refined heaux"...), so it's apparently not a plural.

It is, I think, just an attempt to avoid the negative connotations of "ho".

Kate said...

All I remember of Toni Morrison is that one of her characters is called Milkman because he breastfed to a late age. Is this what she means? Judging by her genitalia comment, then a breast is a fatty milk duct for the child's nourishment, regardless of age. Latch on, kid.

Or maybe she's a fan of The Smiths. Depression Politics. Oh, that's Morrissey.

buwaya said...

Its an interesting point to consider that rationalization does not actually require reasoning or rationality.

Anyway, the lady in question is doing a great deal of rationalizing, but I'm not sure what it is that she is rationalizing. Is she actually a "ho" and wants to excuse that, or does she aspire to be a "ho" but is not, or perhaps more likely, no longer is succeeding at it?

Or is all this simply a sort of Walter Mitty-ism?

Officer: Was his penis inserted into your vagina?

Naked mother: Of course it was, it's quite the wrestling move! But it was no sexual penis insertion.

Officer: Was your mouth on his penis?

Naked mother: It was. I landed on it with my bottom and I think I hurt him. Momma was kissing his booboo better. Who hasn't kissed her darlings booboos better?

Officer: Was that after he inserted his penis into your any?

Naked Mother: I just got finished telling you, you racist, sexist, homophobe! My bottom fell onto his penis, that's when I kissed his booboo better.

Officer: Do you always wrestle with your mother like this on the front lawn, son?

"pointing prong of Callista Gingrich's hair"

"Had you already known thot, 'cause that one is new to me too."

I've looked it up before, but I had to look it up again to remember the definition. And I was sort of ignoring it this time.

It's okay with me if people want to make up a bunch of new code words. It's one way to write. Makes it hard to read, but I assume that's the point, to put off outsiders and make insiders feel special.

"...and likes cats."

Lol.

I wonder if people like Suprihmbé are and boring as silly in person as they come across in print.

I wonder if they'd be less boring and silly if, when they were chldren, anybody had taken the trouble to give them something resembling a real education. Or if maybe they've just been educated beyond their intelligence by other people who'd been educated beyond their intelligence, who had themselves been educated by people who'd been educated beyond their intelligence.

Other than that, I can't think of anything else of interest about people like this.

Have met a fair number. Boring, no, not immediately, but it takes an effort not to make a face, which requires and effort, and they tend to have no more than 30-minutes worth of material in them, after which they start repeating themselves. The worst ones repeat themselves right off and continuously which is a potential fault in all of us of course.

Have to go carefully. Let them do the talking, mostly. Since I arrived in San Francisco I think I have developed the reputation of being a good listener.

ROBYN BAILEY-ORCHARD said...

As a very traditional English teacher and proscriptive grammarian, I can explain this evolution:

"whore" is pronounced 'hoe" in dialect and spelled "ho" to avoid confusion. The plural, according to conventions, should be "hoes."

I must admit I admire the neo-graphism "heau" and "heaux." At least it's not using the apostrophe to make a plural ("ho's")

Angel-Dyne said...

AA: Key to understanding the coinage: Heaux is a way to spell the plural of ho. (Do you have a better idea? I wrote "the plural of ho" because I didn't.)

I, too, have pondered the thorny problem of how to pluralize "ho". "Ho's" is just wrong, but "hoes" is the plural of "hoe" and "hos" looks like it should be pronounced "hoss", which could not be the plural of "ho".

But, as you and SeanF note, the elegant solution of "heaux" that you at first thought you saw, was not to be realized. Of course, there's no law that says "heaux" as a plural can't be salvaged from its clumsy mal-appropriation here, and mainstreamed.

Sex is binary. Gender is closely correlated to sex, with deviations, including: homosexual, incest, bisexual, polygamy, crossover, schizophrenic, interspecies, etc. occurring on a transgender spectrum. That said, with willing female surrogates, abortion rites, medical corruption, and political progress, why not normalize it?

Then there are the custom manufactured sex and gender robots.

I Have Misplaced My Pants said...

I have a friend, single mom, with a son who is 11. Her boy and my daughter (13) have been friends since they were tiny, and the mom is always asking me to bring my daughter over to hang out with him, but we are reaching the point where I am not comfortable with them spending time together exclusively. She was an early bloomer and poor thing wears a C cup and I've seen the way he's started to look at her. I tried to talk to my friend about it and she was completely incapable of hearing that her son is not a little boy any more, blissfully free of any sexual feelings. I strongly suspect that this whackadoodle will be the same way about her son as well.

Michael K said...

The old spelling is "whore."

You're welcome/

My youngest daughter was at her grandparents' house when she was three. She had been visiting the little girl next door and came back and told her gramma that she saw a movie where "a man went pee pee into a woman's mouth."

It turned out the next door neighbor was a hooker and watched porno flicks.

No more visits to that little girl. That was 25 years ago.

There is no research, other than a very few papers in religious literature, about the effects of the raising of children by gay couples.

Nobody knows and nobody wants to know. We will probably know in 20 years but the few studies so far suggest big trouble.

I don't have a problem with parent child nudity (e.g. if you're showering together) if the child is as young as 5 or even a bit older -- she's not wrong that modern Americans conceptualise children as potential sexual objects to an excessive degree (though I do not think they actually sexualise them -- it's fear of pedophilia, not pedophilia itself). But I do think she's doing her son no favours by letting him think it's okay to run around the house naked. Maybe she wants to live in a world where it's okay to run around the house naked, but she doesn't. That's a recipe for disaster. Some girl is going to end up accusing him of indecent exposure at school.

gay couplets ... effects of the raising of children ... few studies so far suggest big trouble

What we do know is that there is an effort by social liberals to target prepubescent and adolescent boys and girls for transgender conversion therapy, including indoctrination and medical corruption. This is clearly a violation of natural conditions and medical ethics. We also know that mental imprints and anthropogenic physical transformation can have persistent effects on an otherwise normal male or female brain and body, which simulates transgender mental and physical characteristics. We live in interesting times.

By the principle of invertible naxis, one can assert one's intellectual and moral superiority by making reference to a term (for example "political Morrison") that others in the conversation do not know and do not understand. The principle of invertible naxis explains much of the intellectual progress in the humanities in the last half century.

(If you find that wikipedia should -- through wide spread ignorance and moral weakness -- not have a wikipedia page on the principle of invertible naxis, please feel free to create one; but I guarantee you will get bored with correcting the autocorrects on the word naxis.

Not next to me. The in laws must have trusted the neighbors to let your daughter go there. You must have trusted your in laws when you left your daughter with them Did you or your in-laws have a talk with the neighbor hooker? Surely someone as trusted as that must have been under some influence to watch porn with three year old girls present?

Freud as a strawman. Do any serious psychiatrists adhere to Freud's views of human sexuality? Trashing Freud is cheap moral preening. No one is going to defend Freud's out-dated, crankish views on almost all human behavior. Fer God's sake, the man thought he could cure schizophrenia with words.

Michael K said...

I don't know why you are so interested.

Laguna Niguel has been an upscale neighborhood since it was developed in the 1960s.

The grandparents did not know that neighbor and in California that is not all that rare. He might have been a renter for all I know.

I think they had noticed quite a few young women going in there and it probably should have tipped them off but they were elderly.

I think the guy was either kicked out or arrested soon after.

The kids played together and the other kid must have asked Annie to go to her house.

Needless to say, she never went near there again.

Is that enough to satisfy your curiosity ?

How well do you know your neighbors ?

This woman is quite mad. The jargon is part of her defense mechanism: intimidates others, makes her feel special.

Pretty sure the naked family fun is a bad idea but short of some spectacular breakdown with media coverage, we are unlikely ever to know. It's a single data point, therefore scientifically useless but certainly interesting.

The faux French is laughable, probably deliberately so. But if "whore" has morphed to "ho," the plural should not be "heaux" but "ho's" or maybe "hose," which evokes "hose queen," slang in my old school for "woman of easy virtue."

FullMoon said...

Pretty much. Just tell me when it happened.

Well enough, especially next door neighbors. Would let my kid play next door, or two doors down, but not three doors down, because the two eccentric scientists live there.
Directly across street and three houses on either side of them ok, new people in the other houses, so I would not let my three year old go there. In fact, would never let my three year old go anywhere by herself unless a trusted friend. Everybody is different, though.

********************************

Gotta go out on a limb and say that the epidemic indicates that not ENOUGH hookers and escorts , as well as their clients, insist on the use of condoms. AND I might imagine that untreatable STDs are often transmitted by oral sex, where condoms are seldom employed.


Followed the link. Nothing said about hookers, escorts, or their clients. Must be the people who do not frequent hookers and escorts. Surprised to read that many people are not aware they have gonorrhea, which is the std that is becoming drug resistant.

Words from Ebonics do not count as learning a new word. I thot you knew better!

Laguna Niguel is to being white what a supermax facility is to being max.

In other words, perhaps not so well, then.

"No philosophical Dogmatist denies that there are difficulties both with regard to the senses and to all science, and that these difficulties are, in a regular, logical method, absolutely insolvable. No skeptic denies that we lie under an absolute necessity, notwithstanding these difficulties, of thinking, and believing, and reasoning, with regard to all kinds of subjects and even of frequently assenting with confidence and security" Hume. If you ask the important human questions, as Freud did, you fall outside of the Enlightenment. How important has science been in guiding your most important life choices? And why do you persist in blog postings when you know much of what you say can't be proven to be true? Freud would have been deeply interested in how Suprimhbe sees the world, and would not have brought moral judgment to his analysis.

It's amazing what you find when you Google yourself. There's a lot of fuckery in these comments that are left unchecked to the point that I am not sure what kind of blog this is.

I only want to address the "Morrison political" comment that seems to have lots of people confused.

Toni Morrison wrote in a Foreword to her novel Sula about being a Black artist and how our work is often politicized even when we don't mean it to be. Morrison believes that all art is political, and so when people asked her to remove politics she saw it as a problem to be solved. She said she is highly aesthetic and highly political and chose to embrace that. (I'm paraphrasing.) So when I say that I'm Morrison political that's all I mean. Idk who the white Morrison is, I haven't followed white male writers since I read part of Chabon's Kavalier and Clay a few years back.

*No one uses "Ebonics" anymore, it's AAVE, and just like pidgin and Kreyol, it's a real dialect of a colonial language.

**Sex worker is a political term, as well as a colloquial term for prostitutes and FS (full service workers). The term sex worker is actually intended to be an umbrella term for all forms of erotic labor (camming, stripping, escorting, burlesque, porn, fetish modeling, etc.) for the purposes of coalition.

You're welcome.
