  • Put the Sex Back in Sex Ed

    TIME ^ | March 13, 2014 7:02 AM ET | Camille Paglia
    Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral...

    She is an unabashed liberal. In a culture increasingly governed by Marxist Nomenklatura masking itself as “liberal”, conservatives should be bold enough to reclaim that much maligned political descriptor as one of our own. We are, after all, the ideological descendants of classical liberals, making the outspoken once Liberal Democrat, now Libertarian Camille Paglia the perfect match for contemporary politically conservative feminists. Can’t possibly imagine the lady who, even when she smiles, gives you a look that says, “I know you’re full of s**t,” could possibly fit in the ranks of the right wing? Here are 10 reasons why you...

    Our society is neutering boys of their maleness at a young age, while the lack of people with military experience in important positions is a recipe for disaster, claims Camille Paglia, the controversial lesbian author and social critic. Self-described ‘dissident feminist’ Paglia, 66, believes that attempts to deny the biological distinctions between men and women is to blame for the much that is wrong with modern society. 'What you're seeing is how a civilization commits suicide’ she told the Wall Street Journal. Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, is well known for her critical views...

    Let me see if I have this right. According to the Thought Police, Duck Dynasty’s patriarch Phil Robertson is a bigot because he said what the majority of the planet believes namely, that men prefer a woman’s yoo-hoo instead of a man’s Chattahoochee canal? I know that’s not exactly what he said during the GQ interview where he dared to tell everyone what he or she and A&E already clearly knew he thought.

A peevish, grudging rancor against men has been one of the most unpalatable and unjust features of second- and third-wave feminism.

But in the end, she's asked why she's not voting for Obama — she's voting for Jill Stein — and out flow the words, which I started transcribing without knowing how long she'd go on.

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi scored a giant gain for feminism last weekend. In shoving her controversy-plagued healthcare reform bill to victory by a paper-thin margin, she conclusively demonstrated that a woman can be just as gritty, ruthless and arm-twisting in pursuing her agenda as anyone in the long line of fabled male speakers before her. Even a basic feminist shibboleth like abortion rights became just another card for Pelosi to deal and swap. It was a stunningly impressive recovery for someone who seemed to be coming apart at the seams last summer, when a sputtering, rattled Pelosi struggled...

Except for that wily fox, David Axelrod, who could charm gold threads out of moonbeams, Obama seems to be surrounded by juvenile tinhorns, bumbling mediocrities and crass bully boys.

The screenplay by Rod Serling (based on a 1962 novel by Fletcher Knebel and Charles W. Bailey II) is filled with passionate lines that seem right out of today's talk radio -- "intellectual dilettantes" versus patriotism; America's loss of "greatness"; the superiority of military experience to civilian judgment and governance.

However, despite her Democratic leanings, Paglia stands out as one of the nation’s most important voices in exposing the perversity, danger, and superficiality of liberalism, a fact powerfully exemplified by what she has to say about Sarah Palin in a recent “Salon” piece.

According to advance "tasters" of the expose, she describes herself as a victim of harassment and names a senior professor as her tormentor.

    Praising Paglia A lonely voice on education. By Thomas Hibbs A caller to C-Span's In Depth on Sunday, August 3, accused the show's guest, Camille Paglia, of being a reactionary conservative and wanting to take us back to the days of "lynching." What exactly did Paglia say to merit this criticism? She issued a plea for educational reform, for a return to "fundamentals" and "great books." The caller's non sequitur was almost as outlandish as imputing the conservative label to Paglia, a devotee of the writings of the Marquis de Sade. Appearing for a marathon three-hour session, Paglia's rapid-fire speech...

    Under grilling by social critic Camille Paglia and Radar editor Maer Roshan, the proprietor of the billion-hit-a-year claims that the DNC has assembled a "really thick . . . dirt file" on Condoleezza Rice. On Rice: "Oh, she's a powerhouse! But the DNC has a dirt file on her that is really thick. Think of 'The Contender,' or those other movies that have warned what happens when a female candidate has some dirt she'd rather hide." As for the so-called "dirt file," DNC Communications Director Debra DeShong gave a non-denial denial. "We don't talk about our research," she said,...

    How Far Will Good Intentions Take Hillary?By Camille PagliaTimes (UK) | June 18, 2003 The following review was originally published on June 13, 2003.AFTER their husbands leave the White House, First Ladies of the United States write bland, genial books about their swim in the shark-infested waters of Washington, DC. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s much-anticipated Living History follows that formula, but also breaks the mould, since its author is on an upward trajectory, her career waxing as her husband’s wanes. Hillary received a whopping $8 million (Ł4.8 million) advance for this book, a jackpot needed to defray the enormous legal fees...

    <p>The Salon Interview: Camille Paglia Bad omen: Why the Columbia disaster should make Bush think twice about rushing to war with Iraq.</p> <p>Camille Paglia is a rarity in the increasingly polarized world of public intellectuals, a high-profile thinker and writer who is not readily identified with any political camp or party line. She burst onto the scene in 1990 following the publication of her book, "Sexual Personae." Paglia was a rough-trade feminist not afraid to challenge the orthodoxy of the women's movement or its reigning sisterhood; a professor from a small college with no qualms about torching the Parisian academic trends then enthralling Ivy League humanities departments; a self-proclaimed "Democratic libertarian" who voted twice for Bill Clinton and then loudly denounced him for bringing shame to his office.</p>
  • The Left has lost its way and lost its voice

    The language of leftism is out of date. It desperately needs reconstruction and revitalisation, if the Left is ever to regain its proper status as a voice of ethical critique of materialistic modern society. As a registered Democrat who voted for the fringe-left Ralph Nader for President in 2000, I am well aware of the decline in prestige and effectiveness of leftist organisations since their high point in the 1960s. The large demonstrations against globalisation two years ago, for example, made scarcely a ripple in the US and have already been forgotten. One problem is that too many leftist periodicals...
