Skip to comments.Sorry, Camille Paglia: Feminism Is the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Men (Just weird)

Men today are what feminism has always pined for and worked towardand the happy surprise is that men wouldn't want to go back either.
Camille Paglias perennial skewering of feminism is now so near tradition it deserves its own greeting card. This year, in her article entitled, Its a mans world and it always will be, Paglia argues that men have and always will be the shapers of society while women have and always will play only a supporting role. She even claims men are responsible for womens liberationassigning them near full credit because they invented labor-saving devices that liberated women from daily drudgery. While bestowing this honor, she makes no peep about the likes of Margaret Sanger or the well-known womens movement and their role in saving women from the daily drudgery of, say, unintended pregnancy. While neither is delightful, when wagering on which women needed more freedom fromunchecked pregnancy or manual dish cleaningmy money is on Sanger.
Paglia claims that feminism is set on stereotyping, belittling or demonizing men. Yet the research on men suggest their lives have improved immeasurably as a result of feminism. By all appearances, feminism has been the lead designer of the modern man who is not only the product of feminism but arguably the greatest beneficiary of it, too.
Womens ascent into the workplace has not diminished men but has freed up space in the family for a more involved fathera position more fulfilling than any at the office....

More feminism porn for my reading pleasure. Do you have like three computer screens on your desk? I appreciate the dirty work you do scouring the internets for us.
Cristina, put down the pipe and get yourself some help.
This time it’s dressed up in “thoughtful prose” but really no different than the PIV column. The two authors (if, indeed they’re not one in the same) would probably like each other, if they’re not already friends.

Time magazine - whaddaya expect?
The first comment at the site is a pleasure to read. He eviscerates this bimbo.
Paglia is correct. Feminism destroyed public education for our sons.
The author praises the murder of children.
or as Rush says, the Chickifcation of Men.
The other one was more stimulating. A first generation feminazi.
I’ll give Paglia credit for creating an attention getting niche for herself.
My first wife wanted to be a man (in the figurative not literal sense). It was seven years of marital misery for me. I ditched her and found a woman who is happy being a woman. It has been eleven years of marital bliss for us. Meanwhile, wife 1 remarried, got divorced again after two years and has been by herself for the five years since. Just sayin’.
A 50% divorce rate, trending upward illegitimacy rate, 1 million plus abortions (50% male), an increasingly single mom welfare state, “affirmative action”/quotas for females, angry bitter unmarried females, “gay marriage” populations declines, save for immigration (and that’s another controversy) . . . yeah, men are so much better for it all, as is society.
"feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society." - Rush
Rush said this decades ago. (IIRC, it’s a chapter in one of his books.) ISo it deserves thoughtful consideration when Paglia brings it up? Whatever... I’m glad she did; it’s true.
“My first wife wanted to be a man (in the figurative not literal sense).”
I walk a very fine line being the breadwinner. It makes economic sense for me to work one job and him stay home with the kids. He could work two, and we’d never see him, and still end up with less. I am always mindful of this, in every aspect of life. He has complete and total control over the money. I ask him for cash when I need it. I hope he doesn’t feel this way about me.
As always, the undereducated feminist class has no knowledge of the great John Stuart Mill. He was the father of women’s rights.
How dare she drag out that 20th Century hag, Margaret Sanger. Susan B. Anthony would have been horrified at this racist, abortion-loving beast.
Impressive; it reads like a Supreme Court Justice’s dissenting opinion!
He must have had that in the can and ready to go.
