Whom the Gods Would Destroy ...
It must be that Hillary is running for President. What passes as pundits to the right-wing have come out with guns blazing ... straight down at their own feet.
First it was "Vox Day":
[T]his is not to say there is not a genuine threat to all three aspects of science today. Unsurprisingly, it comes from the same force that is the primary threat to the survival of Western civilization: female equalitarianism. Flush with their success in decimating the collegiate sports programs of America, the equalitarians have now set their sights on applying the infamous Title IX quotas to science education, despite the fact that women already earn 57 percent of bachelor's degrees, 59 percent of master's degrees and a majority of doctorates. If successful in this effort, and initial signs indicate that they probably will be, in 30 years, academic science in America will be no more intellectually respectable or relevant than womyn's studies are today.Then Mike S. Adams joined in:
[W]hen they aren't attending masturbation workshops and orgasm awareness festivals on [University of North Carolina] campuses, our feminist "scholars" are usually thinking of new words to ban in order to make womyn feel more comfortable in the workplace. recently, one of the sociologists at unc-wilmington actually banned the use of the term "mankind" because of its "sexist" overtones.Now Dennis Prager has completed a triple play:
Feminism raised women's expectations beyond what life can deliver to the vast majority of them. It was hard enough for women in the past to realize their far fewer expectations of marrying a good man and making a happy family. But feminism told a generation of women that they can not only expect to have that but, perhaps even more important to feminism, they could also expect to have a fulfilling, financially rewarding, society-honoring career.These guys aren't too insecure, are they?
