I always thought Rush Limbaugh was a little over the top with his designation of feminists as “Feminazis,” but being over the top is his job, after all. It appears he was also prescient.
Right now the most formidable critic of contemporary radical feminism is Christina Hoff Sommers. You can view her new YouTube series of short weekly commentaries, “The Factual Feminist,” starting here.
Well, rather than argue with the challenges Christina lays down, someone just decided to . . . burn her book The War on Boys, and post gleeful photos of the deed on Imgur.
Look, I know the rule that the person who first defaults to reductio ad Hitlerum is automatically the loser of the argument on points, but when you start burning books you disagree with, you at least open yourself to legitimate charges of the F-word (fascism). Coming on the heels of the demand to fire George Will for dissenting from gender orthodoxy, and my own escapades with the gender police, the term rather fits.
Footnote: I brought Christina to lecture at Boulder, and she was the only guest speaker (out of a lineup that included Charles Murray) that excited any audience rudeness. After her presentation about how boys should be left to be little boys, one especially precious audience member objected to the “heteronormativity” of her talk. This is the method of the left: they think by assigning a jargon-term to your view, they have refuted you. This particular fellow was so rude–going on and on as though he was the speaker, refusing the yield the floor to other questioners–that I finally had to shut him down rather forcefully–in exactly the manner by which the left always shuts down other people.
And then there was the reaction to Christina’s answer to a question about “rape culture”. . .
