Academic Womanhood at Its Finest

April 20, 2011

 

Lewin_Ellen

ELLEN LEWIN, a professor of feminist anthropology at the University of Iowa, responded to a civil e-mail from College Republicans by telling them to “eff-off.” This is the sort of elevated discourse one can expect from the ideological storm front of gender discourse.

Personally, I would not wish to participate in a correspondence with Ms. Lewin, who was educated at Stanford and the University of Chicago. These rarefied degrees, combined with the unadulterated insanity and evil of women’s studies, are likely to produce not-so-nice manners. Something tells me Ms. Lewin would beat up a housewife, or like to. Below is a description of her work on the university’s website. Ms. Lewin believes men can be mothers – no, she believes men, preferably homosexual men, should be mothers – and the moon is made of blue cheese. Everything she promotes would be remarkably funny. If only it was a joke. Her foremost ideal appears to be the “gay father.” I wonder how much Prof. Lewin is paid to spread these insanities and evils into the tender minds of the young. Surely, it’s in the six figures.  Read More »

 

The Chaotic Hell of City Schools

LAWRENCE AUSTER writes at VFR:

The Philadelphia Inquirer is running a series, “Assault on Learning.” Part 3 of the series is “Young and Violent, Even Kindergartners.” The article is largely a catalogue of violent attacks by young children on their teachers, though there is also a section on sexual misbehavior. The situation in Philadelphia’s black public schools as portrayed in the article is a nightmare that Dante would have had trouble conceiving. Read More »

Are There Any Epsilon Men?

April 20, 2011

 

P. TRUSTER writes:

Regarding the post on “Two Kinds of Love,” it’s not clear to me whether all males are divisible into alpha and beta, winners and losers, or whether there are additional categories — gamma, delta, epsilon, etc.

I have to say that some of the alpha males I’ve known have been loathsome people, regardless of their ability to attract and entrap women who, as often as not, didn’t seem to be terribly happy with their men, in the long run anyway. Read More »
