Camille Paglia: interviews and reviews

A voice of sanity, real scholarship, wit and class plugging her latest book in Broadly along with other interviews and reviews in Tablet (Jews and feminism); NYMag (predicting 2017); and Philly.com (politics, art, spirituality). It is an absolute outrage how so many pampered, affluent, upper-middle-class professional women chronically spout snide anti-male feminist rhetoric, while they remain completely blind to the constant…

Islam and the Future of Tolerance: The Movie

If you are one of those anti-liberal sheep-like incoherent intersectional fuckwits who participated in- or uncritically supported- a mass march co-organized by a pro-Hamas Sharia law enthusiast, then this project won’t be for you.

Identity politics and affirmative action may well have met a…

Christina Hoff Sommers and Camille Paglia: The full interview

Based Mom and Based Goddess let rip on the toxic cocktail of cultural infantilization, the new Stalinism (kangaroo courts), free-speech, identity politics, advocacy posing as academic inquiry, willful ignorance of the past, the ethics of teaching (intellectual dishonesty), utopianism, “cultural appropriation”, radical social constructivism, and on crapping on the “secret people” (gamergate) — totemic of those whom the…

Why Concepts Creep to the Left

She asked for my love and I gave her a dangerous mind Now she’s stupid in the street and she can’t socialise — Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) One really has to be skeptical of the extensional and intensional adequacy of the concepts under discussion (this over and above the standard political labels of mutual…
