Let me expand on this, a bit, because I think many people misunderstand the feminist critique of pornography, as I did for many years. Circa 1985, when Andrea Dworkin & Co. were leading the feminist crusade against pornography, most Americans had zero exposure to hard-core porn. I know that I was clueless as to what the fuss was about, never having seen such stuff.

This is a very worthwhile discussion, and I hope you ladies won't mind some mansplaining.… @EverywhereErica @laalex2 @KaeleyT Mrs. Alexander is, of course, correct. Parents should not automatically assume that sending your daughters off to college is the thing to do, simply because that's what everybody else does.

Short answer: YES. And I can briefly explain why.… @mmegannnolan @glosswitch @MeghanEMurphy @jessphillips The "male feminist" is a running joke both among feminists and anti-feminists.

Observations on "gender": The sexual marketplace is governed by forces that mirror the economics of supply and demand. Humans respond to incentives, but not all responses are rational or advantageous. Many of those in the so-called "manosphere" speak the language of sociobiology, although it's not clear that they actually understand the fundamental concepts pioneered by E.O. Wilson, Lionel Tiger, et al.

Let me say this: I know Richard Spencer. I first him 10 years ago. He is highly intelligent, and just went off in the wrong direction. The "alt-right" is a reaction to failure of the GOP. I've known a few people of the Spencerian type. Their alienation was not inevitable.

BTW, I try to ignore anti-Semitic trolls, but I am deeply concerned by their proliferation. Canary, coal mines, some assembly required. What I mean is that anti-Semitism is the bellwether of societal paranoia, a fear-based reaction to the loss of cultural coherence.
