one more reason for women to stick to the one art they can master and
preside over without fuss, that of the cooking pan. then again, isn't it
ironic that most of great chefs (witness the IRON CHEFS of today) turn out
to be male?
i mean... come on... look at the subject of this thread. am i supposed to
take it seriously?
on a slightly less haphazard note, isn't paul de man derrida's failed nazi
evagelist? that's three strikes against him: association with derrida, nazi
sympathies and his proselytizing in the name of deconstructionism... how can
he be cited as a salient example of the attitude held by the academic
establishment toward female writers in the last 50 or so years?
