She doesn't dissent; she loathes.


and her gay son is quite well known in the NYC Leather Bar circuit.

He's got to be a self-loathing, miserable guy. He's her assistant when she's working.

I'm not sure what the specific methods are that are used differently in co-ed & ssed...the makeup of the classroom tends to set the tone...unless of course if it is a lab where people do their own thing. bc even in ssed colleges for women, there are male professors, administrators, advisors, etc...i haven't really looked into how subject matter is taught differently though.

i do agree that a lack of male teachers can have prolonged effects on the male students...but then again, i think there has been more female teachers in the field for quite some time now.

i once saw her on a talk show, and someone asked her about how she had once written that gay children are the result of bad parenting, the whole "weak fathers, overbearing mother" Freudian-lite explanation.

the question was: "how did you teach your son to be gay?"

it was a great moment.

Many guys can talk a good game, but when it comes down to it behavior and actions are what's truly meaningful. I have known some guys who I thought were feminists in the way that I define it, but certain aspects of their personalities reveal themselves, and well...You can be a feminist in theory but not in practice. It's just really shocking and surprising (and infuriating) to me how many younger men have sexist attitudes, and I wonder if that comes from their upbringing or from elsewhere.

As for me I believe feminism is all about freedom and choice and having choices. I truly do admire women who choose motherhood as their sole career if they can afford that financially-it's a very important career and job ( ultimately the most important, I think). Feminism is about supporting each other, and each other's choices.

Me too. I'm a professional protestor.

Thats a brilliant definition of feminism and I totally agree with you, its not about 'women are better than men!' or 'all women should who raise their kids are weak!' but 'lets support women in everything they do.'

Women are still in the process of catching-up, and in too many walks of life, it's a crawl at best. Think of our governments, a place that's supposedly a reflection of who we are as a society.

I've been away from FYM, but this is a Great Thread!!!

Feminism = the belief in equal rights between genders.

Not an unclear definition IMHO, but one that's perhaps not *precise* enough for some, and that lead to the radical misdefinition of feminism by the far right.

feminism=manhating feminazi butch lesbian phallophobe

Dworkin and MacKinnon didn't help us out, either, by defining all heterosex as rape. And then there's the Antioch Rules . . .

But missteps, mistakes, and misdefinitions aside, feminism is a fabulous movement and should be required reading and living for any man.

It's why we do housework and childcare. It's why we're pro-choice. It's why we respect our spouses rights to "have a life" of their own--even and especially including close friendships with other men.

It may take me a while to find the disk, but once I find it, I'll post it. I had it published in a school publication.
