"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Naomi Wolf Would Like an Apology from Phyllis Chesler, Chesler Would Like Wolf to Wake Up and Smell the Coffee

Wow. Just wow! Things are really heating up over at Dr. Chesler's blog. If you are a Feminist and you'd like to observe one of the bigger hurdles facing the Fourth Wave ... you really MUST come over and read. Not only today's response to Naomi. But also Phyllis' piece that started the whole brew-ha-ha. And Naomi's piece before that.

It's really high time, in my opinion, that the Second and Third Waves of American Feminism faced off in the boxing (uh, er debate) ring. Doncha think?

For research and accuracy, I'll put my money on Phyllis.

Can't rule Naomi out though... cuz she has the high falutin' connections.

    Uh, Naomi?

    Howsabout you quit showing off your own breasts to all and sundry, before you sing the praises of state imposed "modesty" on other women?

    If covering any part of a woman's body that men choose to objectify appeals to you, maybe you could start with the smaller subset that men fetishize in these here United States and maybe raise that neckline a little? Maybe loosen that jacket a bit? (bonus: you'd get to breath a freer!)
