My NEW Taki’s column is up!
So sexist “progressive” men such as Anthony Weiner, Bob Filner, and Eliot Spitzer don’t surprise me, but why is anyone else shocked by their hypocrisy? I’m not just thinking of Bill Clinton or Ted Kennedy; second-wave feminism began as a revolt not against mean old fathers and bosses, but against the misogynist college boys running the ’60s peace movement. (Eldridge Cleaver, anyone?)
In contrast (and contra Zsa Zsa), the “right wing” guys I know are matter of factly gender-blind. No neocon’s ever called me “honey.”
Which brings me to Hugo Schwyzer.
