Quote# 126496

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.

It's a "mental disability" only if you define the usual male blindness to nuance concerning women as "normal". "Objectively" is the way to see evidence in the lab, but it makes for pretty dry reading when applied to literature, while "objective" poetry is about as compelling as reading the bus time-tables.

Why would you wish to lower yourself to restore those one-sex standards?

Wait, Bill thinks there are academic writings which aren't an assault on the English language? That alone earns a double WTF. The rest of it earns another WTF.

Objectivity is not a masculine ideal, it's neither masculine or feminine, its fucking objective.
