    Do these feminists realize that they are also bashing their fathers, when they speak ill of men? Good for this one. who sees the bigger picture.

    I would argue that men do not need Camille Paglia to defend them. I would say, rather, that Camilla Paglia is being intellectually honest instead of following the rhetoric of the feminist party line. She does this frequently, and to that I say, Bravo! And I am also praying that whatever wounds she has may be healed.

    Isn’t it a testament to how low a level public discourse has descended, when the logical extension of plain common sense might find justification to be celebrated as courageously original thinking?

      So true.

      This is not a comment on the topic at hand, but to this comment on public discourse. I’m reading a wonderful book called “Amusing Ourselves to Death” by Neil Postman. It illustrates the causes of the decline of public discourse quite effectively and intelligently. How did we get to a point where we need Pinterest worthy quotes printed on photos? Pinterest and other such forms of amusement didn’t exist when the book was written, but the patterns and trends brought us to where we are today; completely lacking in intelligent dialogue and common sense in most arenas of America. I think readers of this blog might enjoy the book. If you read it in the 80’s I’d say it’s a classic worth revisiting.

        Thanks for the sharing the book. A few quick thoughts from my corner of the world: Political Correctness has been poison. The point of PC is censorship. The fruit of PC is a decline of critical thinking skills. Many other cultural and technological developments have led to the rise of the “meme.” As a marketer, I used to say that we need to write advertising copy to the 8th grade level. I do believe we’ve sunk down to 6th grade. Memes tap into the culture’s desire for brevity and simplicity. Fewer people want to tackle big ideas, but rather prefer to grovel in the decadence of the age. Too bad more kids can’t attend the same school as your kids. 😉
