merlinmann / hotdogsladies

I’m Merlin, and I make my living at sea, catching wild dolphin fish and tracking the elusive “Savant Crabs of the Farallones.” My ship, “The Mrs. Olsen” is based out of Panama and runs on diesel and unconditional positive regard.

I’m just shy of seven feet tall, and I eat pert near my own weight in baitfish by 10 each morning. My teeth are made of fool’s gold but my eye patch was sewn from General Tito’s baby blanket. Legend is I once killed a man—just because I needed a really good cry.

I do know I’m pretty good at Robotron, french kissing, and skimming ladies’ fashion magazines. I drink scotch whiskey, and I shit scotch tape. I’m an excellent driver and I just finished the rest of your cheeseburger while you were fucking around with your cellphone.

This land is my land from California to the New York island, but you’re welcome to stay as long as you pitch in for gas and never call me “Copernicus.” But you knew that.

Let’s do this thing.

There are two people in merlinmann’s collective.

    Jill Lepore: The Feminist and the Superhero

    The Harvard historian Jill Lepore – prolific, impish, a super-mom, politically engaged and still professorial – is giving us the kinky inside story of Wonder Woman that you never suspected reading the old comic book. Lepore stumbled on it while she was researching a New Yorker piece on Planned Parenthood and its founder Margaret Sanger. It turns out that the man who invented Wonder Woman in 1941 – as a match for Superman – was related by common-law marriage not just to Sanger but to the birth control and feminist movements in their World War I heyday.

    William Moulton Marston was a Ph.D. psychologist (and inventor of the lie detector), a bigamist by conviction and a female-supremacist in doctrine. He lived a radical bohemian life under one roof with two women and had children with both of them.  Wonder Woman was Marston’s model of the new woman he thought should rule the world.

    But when Marston died after World War II, Wonder Woman was domesticated and diminished. In other writers’ hands, Wonder Woman became a babysitter, a fashion model and a movie star in the 1950s. In Jill Lepore’s telling, Wonder Woman is a morphing mirror of the women’s movement itself.

    Right now, she says, that story is missing its happy ending — but where there are Wonder Women, there’s a way.
