Feminist writing is one of the most horribly brutal assaults on the English language that ever came out of academia. It makes legalese sound like fine poetry in comparison.
I suspect that a lot of the rage comes from the fact that feminists tend to have an inability to think objectively, hence their constant attacks on objectivity. I don’t think it’s just willful solipsism; it’s a real mental disability (in an academic setting at least). Universities were founded on the masculine ideal of objective thought, so feminists have a permanent outsider status no matter how many jobs they get at universities. Therefore, they can only “deconstruct” (i.e. destroy) the foundations of Western scholarship. Hence the belligerent language and failure to contribute anything meaningful at all.
I really don’t think we’ll be able to restore our standards without re-segregating universities by sex. Maybe somebody can leverage the campus rape hysteria for just that purpose, although I’m not hopeful.
