Feminism and Fatherhood

A Feminist's Assessment of Fatherhood, Procreation and other Sexual Roles and Relations

Feminism is like an iceberg
Feminism is like an iceberg.


Camille Paglia:

"Mythology's identification of women with nature is correct. The male contribution to procreation is momentary and transient. Conception is a pinpoint of time, another of our phallic peaks of action, from which the male slide back uselessly. The pregnant woman is daemonically, devilishly complete. As an ontological entity, she needs nothing and no one." (S.P. p. 12) [*]

"Whenever sexual freedom is sought or achieved, sado-masochism will not be far behind." (S.P. p.3)

"Steinem/Faludi paleofeminism thinks we've got to turn men into women for us all to get along. Meanwhile, under cover of night, women on the sexual prowl are goading men into the dominant mode to maximize female pleasure."
(Salon, Febr. 4, 1997)

"The prostitute is not, as feminists claim, the victims of men but rather their   conqueror, an outlaw who controls the sexual channel between nature and   culture." (SA&AC p. 18)

"My thinking tends to be libertarian. That is, I oppose intrusions of the state into the private realm-as in abortion, sodomy, prostitution, pornography, drug use, or suicide, all of which I would strongly defend as matters of free choice in a representative democracy."

"True radicals committed to revolutionary principles should be able to find a more thrilling poetry for their banners. Mottos I would have liked to see fly on violet satin over (the church) St. Patrick's: Penis Power; Long Live Gay Love; Paradise Now; Sympathy For The Devil; Flesh And Fantasy; There Is No God; Eat Of My Body; Sex Is Sacred; Art, Pleasure, Sex; Dionysus Lives; Bring Back Babylon; Pagans Unite; Disobey Authority; Free Your Mind."
(From "That old-time religion", in Advocate, December 26. 1995)

"What I see is not a world of male oppression and female victimization, but an internation[al] conspiracy by women to keep from men the knowledge of men's own frailty. A strange maternal protectiveness is at work."

"There is no female Mozart because there is no female Jack the Ripper." (S.P. p. 247) [She is patently misguided and wrong about that.  The best she could do to educate herself is to read When She Was Bad, by Patricia Pearson, so that she doesn't appear to be so far off the mark.   If that is not enough or not too much work, she can always read up on Countess Elizabeth Bathory, someone a hundred times worse than Jack the Ripper --WHS]

"Feminism has betrayed women, alienated men and women, replaced dialogue with political correctness". (Playboy, May 1995)

And, lo and behold, if Camille Paglia is correct with her assessment of female intellect, we'll all be perfectly safe, because according to her she is the sharpest and biggest weapon in the feminist arsenal:

"At this point, I'm the leading woman intellectual in the world. There's no one else." (From Seconds, January 1996)

However, Camille Paglia got at least one thing right when she stated (in Sexual Personae):

If civilization had been left in female hands, we would still be living in grass huts.

___________________

* There is something seriously amiss in Camille Paglia's assessment of the importance of men's role in procreation.  Feminism is like an iceberg.  Most of it is hidden.It should not be looked at only from the biological perspective.  Civilization comes into the picture for anyone not swinging in the trees, and that cannot exist without fatherhood and marriage in the upbringing of children. 
   You better have a look at a few other opinions first before you take Camille Paglia's word as the Gospel. 
   Feminism is a threat to society and to all of civilization, and there is far more to feminism than meets the eye.
See Fathers, Fatherhood and Fatherhood Issues.

It is all right to put the images of women onto pedestals, but by putting them there we segregate women and remove them some distance from us normal mortals; and then the images are perhaps a little too far away for us to notice that those that are not made of stone or clay are full of worm holes.

Perhaps the Sphinx (image) is a more fitting image of feminism: inscrutable, severely eroded, largely covered by the sands of time, with its origins lost in antiquity.  Nevertheless, if one cares to dig deep enough it is found that the Sphinx, just as feminism does, is sitting right amongst and on top of a large number of graves.
