I've got to get off this site! Spending too much of my time being consumed by this war ... but this is great! I love it. She's a wolf in Islamic clothing! :)

You guys are good Pastorius. You do yourselves proud.

And, isn't she a JAP? Amazing that. And she's usually so impeccably coiffed. I can't be bothered. It takes a lot of time to do your hair and put on makeup.

Anonymous,
Thanks for the kind words.

You know, I've never seen Naomi Wolf. And, I don't know much about her.

However, I have heard her interviewed on the radio and I have read this and that about her.

Most feminists are idiots in my opinion, though I do love Camille Paglia.

Hey, I'm the only diehard feminist who likes Camille. I loved Sexual Personae and its quite the tome. I like a lot of things she says. Some I don't agree with. But all in all, she's balsy, and I love that.

Be aware, my liking her makes me the enemy, though I love most feminists and really appreciate the fight they fought. Do you know, when I started school, public school, I mean, we could not wear pants! Did you know the University of VA only began admitting women to their College of Arts and Sciences in 1972! Of course, you know, women were granted suffrage 50 years after black men. And we all know how this country once felt about black men, so ... the facts are pretty astounding.

My favorite woman feminist, the Morning Star, Lucy Stone, who got written out of the History of women's Suffrage by Anthony and Stanton. They were really pissed at her for not going along with them in NOT supporting 15 ammendment. Lucy alone, said that she supported suffrage for black men even when it was being denied to women. She was definitely the Morning Star and did more for women's rights in this country than any other. She deserves a holiday. HL Mencken alone has wondered why she is so forgotten?

Anywho, I do go on, don't I? My favorite male feminist JS Mill. What a guy.

It's been a tough 2,500 years for Western women, but the struggle continues iin Islam. But I'll stop now.

Okay, just one more intersting fact: Turkish women were granted the vote before French women! Gotta love that Ataturk! Wish more of the Turks did.

I say: No, I wasn't aware of that. For some reason, my mother never pointed that out to me. She's 85, so certainly she remembers that.

However, I am old enough to remember the way most men treated "the wife", "the little lady", "the old battleaxe", etc. And, I am aware of the hostile work environment issues.

But, it seems to me Feminism has, like Liberalism, become a way of pushing equality of outcome, instead of equality of opportunity.

I say: Wow, she is like the Abraham Lincoln of the Feminist Movement.

Thanks for telling me about her.

I say: Yes, and as you can imagine, that's another problem I have with Feminism; except for a select few (Paglia, Chesler, and Jay Leno's wife come to mind) Feminists have ignored the plight of women in Islamic countries.

That's disgusting.

Funny, I heard Leno's wife on Larry King say that we could not judge their cultures. That we had to have "cultural sensitivity." That we could not push our ways on them.

I was boiling. Yes, she tries, but she's a little confused. Where is the outrage? Where is the moral outrage at what I consider the greatest human rights abuses in the world today?

When S. Africans were being segregated, there was world outcry and boycotting and intense pressure.

Why is there not the same outrage for MILLIONS and MILLIONS of women being denied basic human rights?

Mavis had me really pissed that night. She's susceptible of moral equivacation. She's quietly pleading while women are being beaten and segregated and genitally mutilated and denied education and married at ages as young as 9 years old, de rigueur. We have to stop being nice about what is going on to these women.

Chesler is a brave fighter. I like her. She don't equivocate diddly.

Oh, I didn't know Mavis was into the whole "cultural sensitivity" thing.

I only know that she spoke out against the Taliban, and I only know that because my wife saw her on some daytime program and told me about it.

This is disappointing to hear.
