“All the genres of philosophy, science, high art, athletics, and politics were invented by men. If civilization had been left in female hands, we would still be living in grass huts. One of feminism’s irritating reflexes is its fashionable disdain for “patriarchal society,” to which nothing good is ever attributed. But it is patriarchal society that has freed me as a woman. It is capitalism that has given me the leisure to sit at this desk writing this book.

Let us stop being small-minded about men and freely acknowledge what treasures their obsessiveness has poured into culture. We could make an epic catalog of male achievements, from paved roads, indoor plumbing, and washing machines to eyeglasses, antibiotics, and disposable diapers. We enjoy fresh, safe meat and milk, and vegetables and tropical fruits heaped in snowbound cities. When I cross the George Washington bridge or any of America’s great bridges, I think: men have done this. Construction is a sublime male poetry.” — Camille Paglia

You’re welcome.

  1. She’s one of a kind. A feminist iconoclast is one way to say it. I see her as being in an interesting place where she likes men (especially alphas, be it athletes, artists or geniuses) and she has an ethnic-white appreciation for realism, writ large.

    I like what she writes in broad strokes, her appreciation for art and energy, and for the infrastructures that make it possible. Where she strays I think is in her, shallow in my estimation, celebration of multiculturalism. Brazilian mulatta booties and Latin hip hop and all that. She has a tragic understanding of the human condition along with a kind of childlike optmism. It’s like she “sees” but doesn’t take the expected next step.

    Her weakness is an inabity to get the northern European sensibility. Hates blondes, clearly thats a scorned Italian girl in a 1955 classroom of subtle Anglo girls.

    1. Along with Paglia, Phyllis Chesler is another feminist who has had her hands slapped for veering off of the path of Marxist feminism. There is punishment for women who do not follow the herd as it veers Left toward the cliff….

        Interesting I’ve never heard of her. Although I’ve been described as a crypto-feminist myself, I still wound up on Manboobz as a “misogyonist” for my evil sexist plan to have men’s only clubs. Those people are just insane nuts. Plus they are sub-shamers, a truly vile thing.
