Marilyn Manson’s Snuff Porn

Women are upset with Marilyn Manson’s video for his lugubrious and bad song “Running To The Edge Of The World”. I say women because men don’t give a shit.




It is a horrible little video in which marilyn beats an ex-gf Evan Rachel Wood lookalike with his bare fists… to death. Nasty little revenge fantasy and hardly by any stretch of the imagination an artistic conceptualization of sexual rejection. So I am not going to defend it on anything approaching artistic grounds.


No, I’ll defend Marilyn Manson on another ground entirely. Violence against women is endemic in this society. He has never changed and though I have no figures to back it up I am pretty sure it is going up. Why? Because the men are taking revenge for their cultural emasculation. Men are getting it in the ear on just about every level and they are taking it out on those who are physically weaker than they are.


Violence against women, beating women to death, is not a fantasy Marilyn Manson invented, it is a reality reflected in the tabloids every single day. Violence against women in movies, videos, songs, isn’t leading to violence against women, violence against women is leading to its sexy depiction in our culture.


Let’s look at a woman breaking up with a man for a moment. Is a man irrational to have violent revenge fantasies. Perhaps he wants to be a Costello figure, just cutting her down to size with a vice hold on language: “You lack lust, you’re so lackluster” you might wanna snarl. “I thought I’d let you down but you were just deflating…” or, number three by the great EC, “to murder my love is a crime…” So it goes some way to extolling a price on a woman whose sin was to leave you and any isn’t that far away from Alanis Morrisette, taylor Swift, Liz Phair, doing the exact same stuff to guys.


Where it gets a little out there is when you get to a word and a strike. When you throw punchlines the woman can feel.


Is there any doubt that marilyn manson’s pain over being rejected by Evan Rachel Wood is real and is overwhelming. Who hasn’t been devasted by love? Isn’t it stupid to complain that depicting violence, murder, against a woman, is synonymous with depicting violence against ALL WOMEN, It is very, very specifically about one woman. Now, if I was Wood I would be zero amused about it. But I’m not. And neither are the women complaining. Because this is not a hip hop case of all women are hos and bitches, this is a specific fantasy about a specific woman. Maybe I am weird but there are three people in my life I’d love to beat the crap out of, one is a woman, and in that case, in a work of fiction, I had a character beat her. Thought isn’t action and depicting actions is not the same as doing them.


And really, instead of turning their faces away, women should take a long look at “Running To the Edge Of the World” because really, women are at risk not from marilyn Manson, but from some of the men in their lives and the sooner they figure it out the faster they can protect themselves from us.


In the meantime the problem with Manson isn’t that he wants to kill Evan Rachel Wood -it is that he doesn’t have the talent to transform his hatred into anything other than cheap thrils. Actually, he doesn’t even do that. His revenge fantasy triggers nothing in the collective unconscious except for maybe a salubrious kick at a woman’s breast covered in blood. Manson is the most boring murderer imaginable. here is the url: http://www.marilynmanson.com/#/enter
