Paglia Upon Modern Campuses

The gender ideology dominating academe denies that sex differences are rooted in biology and sees them instead as malleable fictions that can be revised at will. The assumption is that complaints and protests, enforced by sympathetic campus bureaucrats and government regulators, can and will fundamentally alter all men . . .

Misled by the naive optimism and “You go, girl!” boosterism of their upbringing, young women do not see the animal eyes glowing at them in the dark. They assume that bared flesh and sexy clothes are just a fashion statement containing no messages that might be misread and twisted by a psychotic. They do not understand the fragility of civilization and the constant nearness of savage nature. (“The Modern Campus Cannot Comprehend Evil” Paglia)

“A Healthier Husband”

My friends are sharing this article the title makes me cringe, “10 Ways to A Healthier Husband.” The article itself has some sound advice but the tone is controlling. Ladies don’t fool yourself into thinking that you can make your husband healthier, fitter, better – any improvements he does are just that his. You can build him up or tear him down, for sure, but you are not his trainer, you are his wife, focus on how you can be a healthier wife and express your desires if you want him involved. That is, if you want to exercise together, say so! Say, “I want to exercise with you.” or “I want to go for a walk with you” or “I want to eat better” but don’t think you can nag your husband or micromanage him into a fitter man – you will both be miserable if that is your goal.
