    Why not? You don't think novelists make serious points?
    That book was pretty influential. I'm just not sure why....

    What i'm gettin at is showing yet another manly opinion while also baiting some chicks, dude.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Women, conservative or otherwise, will all defend feminism. THEY"RE WOMEN. Giving equal schollorships is an example of the plight of a conservative woman. Sarah Palin is an example of "change" through political action. Nothing to do with feminism. Is she feminine? She's a woman. She just decides to give a wholelotta ass to one guy. Does giving small portions of ass to many partners make a woman more feminine? If so, you otta be livin in the 50's.

    ^You'd think so wouldn't you?
    You'd be wrong. Women are their own worst enemies.

    I think that they can, but I don't see why this one novel in particular is so important. I think that there are other nonfiction books, essays, articles that are more germane to the conversation.

    Well, it's my question, it's valid, and it wasn't addressed to you. If you want to discuss other books/feminist issues, start another thread.

    I'll answer!

    "When she loved a man again, she would return to normal: a woman that is, whose sexuality would ebb and flow in response to his. A woman's sexuality is, so to speak, contained by a man, if he is a real man: she is, in a sense, put to sleep by him, she does not think about sex."
    For me, this rings ... almost completely untrue. "She does not think about sex" - um, nope. The more solid my relationship is, the more I think about sex, actually. What is this quote actually saying, am I not getting it? That it takes a real man to quell the sexuality of a woman? How? By having lots of sex with her? Or does she simply forget about sex because he's so manly? That seems counterintuitive, at least to my tiny female brain.

    Women, conservative or otherwise, will all defend feminism.
    There are a lot of women who think feminism is generally evil and destructive. (not necessarily including myself)

    I dunno. I was hoping someone else might. I actually had a strong physical reaction of the barfing variety when I read that, but I wanted to see what other women who might actually have met "real men" thought. lol

    Thanks for answering!

    Can a conservative man be a feminist? Or does conservativism come in a bundle?
