In Defense of Men

Did you catch the Weekend Interview in the Wall Street Journal the other day?

"Camille Paglia: A Feminist Defense of Masculine Virtues" by Bari Weiss

There are biological differences between men and women, and we ignore them at our own peril.

I agree with her take on many aspects of modern life, and her critique of many in the upper class.  There IS evil in the world, even if many of us don't realize it.
"These people don't think in military ways, so there's this illusion out there that people are basically nice, people are basically kind, if we're just nice and benevolent to everyone they'll be nice too. They literally don't have any sense of evil or criminality."

Read the rest of the article.  Lots of good thoughts on education, sexuality, masculinity, and feminism.  The solution?  An increased appreciation not just for manliness, essentially, but a great appreciation for natural gender differences.

All in all, an intriguing and interesting article.
