Women Are From Venus, Men Are From Delco
I especially enjoyed this quote from Swarthmore's Jane Liefabell.
“I think there’s still a lot of misogyny in our society,” said Liefabell, an 18-year-old religious studies major... “For some reason, I think we’re able to get over the race issue more easily than we’re able to get over the gender issue.”
If that's true, I, as a practicing and proud philogynist, have a theory as to why.
People of different races, really aren't that different from one another. While men and woman really are.
Most voters aren't turned off by Hillary Clinton because she's a woman. They are turned off by her because she's HILLARY CLINTON.
After all, wasn't it a female Harvard professor who called her a "monster"?
UPDATE: Speaking of gender differences, Christina Hoff Sommers reports on an inconvenient truth at Harvard and inside it's toughest math course.
For some reason, out of 50 starting students, no women signed up. Misogyny? I don't think so. Neither does Sommers. Long piece but worth reading.
UPDATE II: Mark Steyn has a funny column about the Dems obsession with identity politics.
"As Ali Gallagher, a white female (sorry, this identity-politics labeling is contagious) from Texas, told the Washington Post: "A friend of mine, a black man, said to me, 'My ancestors came to this country in chains; I'm voting for Barack.' I told him, 'Well, my sisters came here in chains and on their periods; I'm voting for Hillary.'"
"When everybody's a victim, nobody's a victim. Poor Ms. Gallagher can't appreciate the distinction between purely metaphorical chains and real ones, or even how offensive it might be to assume blithely that there's no difference whatsoever."
Ms. Gallagher would fit in beautifully at Swarthmore College.
