Feminism: The Final Solution?

Sally Miller Gearhart is a feminist and a lesbian (but I repeat myself) who as a professor at San Francisco State University in the 1970s helped develop one of the first Women’s Studies programs in the nation. For quite some time, I’ve seen a quote from Professor Gearhart posted in various places around the Internet: […]

Feminist Theory, Human Nature and the Punch Seen ‘Round the World

It’s all so calculated. She’s got a calculator. She’s my soft touch typewriter And I’m the great dictator. Two little Hitlers Will fight it out until One little Hitler Does the other one’s will. – Elvis Costello, 1979 Watching the video in which Ray Rice knocked out his fiancée (now wife) Janay, the thought occurs: […]

The Rocky Horror Parenting Show

Most parenting “trends” are bad. In general, as a parent, you should strive to be as old-fashioned as possible.

‘Our Deepest Feelings’

“Many of us who came to lesbian life in the 1950s greeted the . . . feminist movement in the sixties with exuberance and relief because it articulated our deepest feelings. What feminists were saying — about sexism, for example, about male chauvinism and double standards and inequality — touched precisely on those dissatisfactions that […]

Whose Agenda Is the Feminist Agenda?

“Every woman who remains in sexual relation to man is defeated every time she does it with the man because each single experience for every woman is a reenactment of the primal one in which she was invaded and separated and fashioned into a receptacle for the passage of the invader. . . . The […]
