Posted on 10/14/2018 9:56:05 AM PDT by blam
Cultural commentator Camille Paglia said in a recently published video that second-wave feminism in its attempt to destroy men is also destroying women and our culture.
A video of Paglias discussion at the Battle of Ideas festival in London in October 2016 has been made available on YouTube and was recently linked to on the Drudge Report. The video is released with the launch of Paglias new book, Provocations: Collected Essays.
The feminist icon who prefers the original brand of feminism that won women the right to vote and raised up heroines such as Katharine Hepburn, Amelia Earhart, and Anne Morrow Lindbergh said the more recent second wave of feminism is an absolute poison that has spread worldwide.
Paglia said the original feminists admired what men had done there was no male-bashing as became systemic to second-wave feminism.
The brand of feminism recreated by Betty Friedan in the 1960s, Paglia said, is now based on denigrating men and defining men as oppressors and tyrants through history.
It is an absolute lie, she said, an extrapolation of neuroticism on the part of these fanatics.
The author of Sexual Personae, Paglia added the snowflake generation is also a result of social media, where people feel they have so many friends and they want a sense that reality is comforting them and cushioning them and so on.
A professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Paglia said that, by attempting to suppress the evidence of differences between the sexes, second-wave feminism is actually exposing young women to danger.

Here's the percentage breakdown of male attraction to females PRIOR to Feminism:
Physical = 80%, personality = 20%
Here's the percentage breakdown of male attraction to females AFTER Feminism:
Physical = 100%, Personality = ZERO!
So there you have it. FEMINISM HAS CAUSED A TOTAL OBJECTIFICATION* OF WOMEN BY MEN!
*"the action of degrading someone to the status of a mere object."
I find Camille’s talks very refreshing. I do not have to agree with her politics, but she is honest about it. I always liked that she stood up for Sarah Palin in that while she disagreed with Palin, she liked that fact that a woman was running for the second highest office in the land. That empowered women in total.
I think that in secret, Camille would be happy with the first woman president as a conservative one, or at least a Classical Liberal. Perhaps a bit liberal on the social side of the scales, but a constitutionalist.
Pagila is for women to be equal to men, not surpass. Men and women need each other for completeness. She recognizes the biological, as well as mental differences between men and women. We just look at things differently.
Her talk with Jordan Peterson is fascinating as she touches on a mulitude of subjects in a rapid fire succession. She is a pent up energy that struggles to get out all the ideas at once.
Paglia is a thinker. Agree or disagree with her, at least she thinks about her reasoning and is not a knee jerk dogmatic speaker.
It’s also likely that’s how the Salem Witch Trials got started. Things were very different back then.
Camille is like a bombshell she just destroys the objects of her wrath. Always interesting, I am surprised she can walk the halls of a university.
We just witnessed the epitome of toxic. And I think it is going to kill the Demons.
She is right. One smart liberal.
Damn! I followed the link and watched the YouTube video embedded. That girl needs to cut back on the caffeine!
Still, I liked it.
I think though, Ill stick to her written articles. LOL!
See staring to remind me of later day Ayn Rand
One of the last of the classic (honest) liberals.
She is also one of the most amazingly fastest talking person I’ve ever heard.
