belief but not conscious...I am not actually talking about a fantasy world. I know I said I was, but that was for your benefit. I am talking about the political substructure of the real world, I am talking about belief. Not conscious, deliberate belief, but belief in the assumptions that exist but never get questioned because they are so normalized that noone ever looks at them too closely. I am not talking about silly stereotypes of cartoon jocks bragging about their sexual conquests. If the hierarchy (which is a deliberate oversimplification of hegemony) I was talking about were so fragile people had to brag about it, it wouldn't be worth talking about. If it were so organized that it required people to consciously sort and order themselves by rank, it would have been immediately destroyed. If it couldn't incorporate nice middle aged Christian men in stable marriages, it would have alienated a significant proportion of the men who actually have power within this culture. Of course, nice middle aged Christian men still rape women..
exists but never gets questions and none ever looks at it closely...
You bare basically using lots of worlds that boil down to "It totally is there, just believe me. It is just that no one sees it or knows it even if they are part of it. "
And now it is suddenly a hegemony and hierarchy was the wrong word ? What is that even mean in this context ? Are their some super sexy men having influence about all those around them by controlling all women ? Who is the hegemon ? Or are you just backtracking from men competing for status with each other via control over womens sexuality and now it is suddenly the community of men working together to keep women down, filling the role in the same way the word "class" is usually used ?
It is more and more obvious that you do not have a consistent worldview, just some strange but deep seated hate towards men and are looking for justifications, how flimsy they might be.
JB is a fantasy that includes being irresistible to and getting laid a lot by attractive people. That is a far cry from men controlling womens sexuality to establish a hierarchy.James Bond is a fantasy.
