Feminists aren't just emotional, they're so emotional they're redundant
Jessica Valenti for The Grauniad, here:
When so many of us feel powerless, seeing the extraordinary power of one woman felt like a cathartic release. A reminder of what is possible, and of what our daughter – and ourselves – deserve.
So emotional are such feminists that saying "felt like a catharsis" isn't good enough. It has to be "a cathartic release".
And which catharsis isn't a release? And which catharsis isn't felt?
Where is Camille Paglia when we need her? Or is she so old now that she too succumbs to such nostalgia for emotion?
Powerlessness knows no sex. Just ask any old couple married for forty or fifty years. Or a baby, if it could talk.
