update.

19 February 2008

just read this, also on slate’s the XX factor. it’s a nice accompaniment to my post from last night. i’m all for recognizing the realities of sexism and naming them openly so we can try to change our society. but identifying sexism with such imaginative license? i couldn’t agree more with melinda henneberger that it does far more harm than good–both by detracting from very real problems and by reinforcing stereotypes that lead moderates and conservatives to dismiss feminists as ridiculous.
