Camille Paglia Tells it Like it Is - But Some People Don't Want to Believe It!
[First, I quote a snippet from another commenter:]
""* For some feminists, if you don't subscribe to certain viewpoints or even attempt to be critical of the “movement” then you’ll get lumped into the far right, anti-feminist crowd.*"[Then, I comment on that snippet:]
The real question is, why does the "far-right, anti-feminist crowd" itself . . . . get lumped in with the "far-right anti-feminist crowd"?
For that matter, precisely what IS this mysterious "far right, anti-feminist crowd", anyway?
What actually defines it? Is it really "a thing" at all??
Let's face it, cultural insurgency against feminism is growing and spreading across the human board. Yet I sense a growing panic among certain people, a rush to distance themselves from oh. . .what shall I say. . . the hoi-polloi? One might admit that there is a lot wrong with feminism, and yet. . . one is still loath to admit being one of "those people" who are...oh... I dunno..."anti-feminist"?
Get real! The anti-feminist river is rising and overflooding its banks, and soon we shall all be wading in it, and therefore we shall all be wet whether we like it or not.
In the end, you see, one is not merely "lumped in" with certain people - one is part of an organic continuum with such people, and said continuum is slanting downhill on an ever-increasing pitch, and yes....it is a slippery slope indeed!
We should all get used to this, and try to make friends with our new... um... "cultural neighbors". ;)"
This comment was meant for an article that interviews the always-interesting Camille Paglia - who flat-out informs us that "feminism is dead", and then tells us why. It's worth a read:
