Why isn’t Uma Thurman Mad at her Dad’s Sexually Abusive ‘Religion?’
I find it ironic that everyone is making Hollywood stars, like Uma Thurman or Madonna, their new heroes for the Post-Modern Feminist movement. Women, like Madonna, who wear designer pink hats, representing their labia, screaming hysterically about being tied to their biology and emotions by an abusive patriarchy. Women who think the answer is to emasculate and abuse men. Or women like Uma, who are finally coming out with these sexual abuse revelations against Harvey Weinstein and others, but are as blind as a bat to her father’s sexual abusing favorite cult, Lamaism, that he has promoted for decades, in the New York Times, Huffington Post, and on Panels, and symposiums, and at Universities. How will Bob Thurman cover this one up and how long will Uma help him?
Do these women, like Uma, know anything about the ‘religion’ of Tibetan Lamaism? That her father has embraced, protected, and promoted for the last thirty years? A ‘religion’ that in practice objectifies and uses women for their own sexual imaginings of ‘enlightenment?” Keeps western harems of women inside their sanghas? Thinks the ideal female consort is twelve-years old?
Apparently, not. Why are we looking to Hollywood along with Entertainment news that passes as ‘informative’ while continuing to censor real news, like Lama Sogyal, promoted and protected by Hollywood and her father?
Perhaps Uma’s anger is displaced.
Why are we looking to surrogates for these androcentric misogynists in robes, like Uma and her father?
I don’t think a woman, who has been oblivious to the ‘religion’ that her father embraces, where the lamas keep western harems, and who believe women can only achieve spiritual realization by sleeping with them, only for blessings for their next life to be reborn a man, should be made a hero for gender equality.
Nor should they look to Hollywood who has let this Tantric influence inside their milieu spread to such an extent that there is now a ‘false feminism’; a disdain and abusive view of womanhood that is harmful to both women and men. Where the logical outcome will be the total emasculation of the western man and a bullying, harping, hysterical woman, who can no longer distinguish between a sexist remark and rape.
Another mission accomplished to trivialize real sexual abuse and the predators and enablers that keep it going. Like Uma and her father’s favorite lamas.
Here is her father at a panel for ‘distinguised’ Tibetan Buddhist teachers, like Lama Predator Sogyal and her father.
There is Sogyal to Bob Thurman’s right (page far left) introduced as the ‘cream of the crop.” Disgusting, all of it. That is what Uma should be really angry about, if she wants to do something about institutionalized sexual abuse, Hollywood’s favorite ‘religion.” Thurman is late, and takes his seat (51:04) next to Sogyal, whom he has supported, protected, and enabled, for the last forty years.
Dad Thurman has been protecting Lama Sogyal, promoting him and denying his sexual abuse and keeping of western female harems for the last 40 years. Why did he let someone like Sogyal or any of these lamas near his daughter Uma? I say Uma was already primed to accept the sexual abuse in Hollywood long before she started acting there. After all, it was her father that made this institutionalized sexual abusive cult of Lamaism the ‘highest of Buddhist teachings’ in the world. A model for everyone; a universal religion of peace.
Maybe its time to look at the female Hollywood enablers of this sexual abuse, who said nothing until there was a groundswell of safety in numbers, and who have gotten many perks for letting sexual abuse become normalized and denied for the last forty years and who now want to be heroes.
Maybe Uma should start looking at the hidden causes and conditions that came together in Hollywood, not least of which is the spread of these Tantric ideas, that would keep her lips sealed for so long.
UPDATE: Uma Thurman is not protesting the new, unreleased movie (Starring Uma) by the Weinstein Company. What a confused person. Another third-wave feminist, destroying all gains women made over the last forty years. Hollywood, we can’t stand your hypocrisy anymore.
