  • Meme: "Enthusiastic consent"


    Enthusiastic Consent? Absolutely. No pom-poms, no sex.

    With thanks to Karen Straughan for the inspiration.

    I think it was Camille Paglia who said that leaving sex up to the feminists is like sending your dog to vacation at a taxidermist.

        Specifics, please? A good quote would probably be illustrative of your meaning.

          Here it is -- but you could always have googled it.

          Funny isn't it?

          The other things she says have to do with liking women who are strong leaders, such as Nancy Pelosi and Sarah Palin. Or Madonna. It's a certain personality type -- women who are not delicate flowers to be hoisted up on top of some litter by four slaves and carried around like some fragile protected elitist WASP type of woman, but instead who like men are willing to get their hands dirty and be a good sport and not always try to spoil the fun for men.

            This is what I was replying to. I should have quoted. I'm curious to know what other things she says that he's referring to.

                You had originally said: "Ok everyone keeps mentioning her but you really need to have a closer look at what else she says." My interpretation of that comment was that you had misgivings about Camille Paglia. Did I get what you were saying correctly? I have a vague memory of having reading some of her articles, of which these quotes are drawn. In context, they made good sense. I suspect that if you're limiting your response to merely quotes that they might offer a misleading interpretation of her intentions.

                The one mentioned above, for example was a statement as to how women are automatically granted respect based on her sex, but men do not have it until he has demonstrated that he is worthy of it. This was a description of how society operates, not a prescription on her part.

                The equivalent would be to use only what is in the quote marks. Our society operates on the harmful notion that that "Only men are bad, and only women are good." ~ Some author.

                Then again, it's been a long time since I've read Paglia.

                  There was one comment i have seen that had come from her but i couldn't/can't find it so i will keep looking but the qoute is "If women ruled the world we would still be living in grass huts.....It is women's destiny to rule over men"

                  BUT! i was not going to claim she had said that untill i could prove it but having a look at her qoutes some of them sound pretty bad but thats what quote mining is lol
