Feminist Backlash?
« on: June 08, 2006, 06:44:14 PM »
One quasi-feminist writer thinks Women's Studies is a cool idea . . .

And others don't . . .

I'm trying pretty hard to make sure Women's Studies isn't construed as anti-woman or anti-feminist. At the same time, I'm trying to be fair to the thematic issues (extremism, peaceful vs. violent political change) I'm dealing with.

This is going to be a bumpy ride, eh?

Dude, RC: Controversy = $. It's going to be a wild ride!

The comments on the second page are interesting, though. I think this is going to work out well for you.

I encourage anybody who feels the urge to contribute to their discussion. I only ask if you do so that you remain dignified and don't sink to any name calling.

Awesome reply, RC!  (bottom of the 2nd link)

that's funny as hell.  I think you did the right thing with your last exchange with her.  I don't know if she'll ever "get it" in a way you'd both agree on, but it looks like she's not quite as low as a half wit and could be fun to engage in some philosophy to counterbalance the plethora of "DEATH RADIO!" photo comments.

That plan makes monkey! sense!  Except I think it's best played as a good cop/bad cop with monkey! and RC.  (Naturally, monkey! is the good cop.)

Look, I want to help you out of this.  He's crazy.  Just talk to me.  When, exactly, did you come to believe that you make sense?

My first hate mail!

Quote from: CJM, Women's Studies Professor
Shame on you! No matter what blanket you are hiding this under, horror film or your right to free speech, this shows raw, red hatred of women. I am embarrassed for the honorable men who have to share their gender title with you.

Call her a dyke cunt.

Then mail her a great, dark-brown turd.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Honestly, I don't get the problem.  These people have enough time on their hands to get this worked up?

Especially for a movie they don't know jack about.
