What Women Want
March 14, 2015
No kidding, these and only these two things came in the mail today:
(1) Current issue of National Review. Cover story: “Jailhouse Feminism: What the raging gets right”, Mary Eberstadt. Excerpt:
Yet listening in on some of the conversation today suggests an explanation other than simple venality. Something else is up out there making female trash talk all the rage — something unexpected, poignant, and, at the same time, awful to behold. It’s the language of bondage and captivity, told by prisoners of the sexual revolution.
. . .
Feminism has become something very different from what it understands itself to be, and indeed from what its adversaries understand it to be. It is not a juggernaut of defiant liberationists successfully playing offense. It is instead a terribly deformed but profoundly felt protective reaction to the sexual revolution itself.
(2) The local Shakespeare company is putting on The Taming of the Shrew.
It’s intellectual theme day at the Postal Service!
