    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.
    I think she meant that she doesn't "think" about sex as in she doesn't "intellectualize" it and count all the social baggage that comes with it. It comes more natural to her so she can let herself go without overthinking it. thought blocks her sexual pleasure.

    Well, there is "equity feminism." That is opposed to "gender feminism."

    If that's the correct interpretation the statement does make a lot more sense. Not saying I *agree* with it, but it makes sense that way. I don't know the context it was spoken in, though. Hmmm. OK, maybe I agree with it a bit, on a personal level (given Spartacuss' interpretation).

    Baloney.

    Are you talking about the Yellow Notebook?
    Yes. For me it was really about the experience of being a writer and the process of writing /having a breakdown. The gender/political stuff was largely incidental. Maybe it was more ground-breaking at the time of publication. [/QUOTE]

    I don't see how it can be any more or less natural depending on relationship status. Thought blocks sexual pleasure? Really?

    What does "put her to sleep" mean? It's really bugging me. Is she falling into a lie about falling into a lie, perhaps?

    If it contains the feminine root, to me it's about as credibly concerned with true justice as a kid screaming "NO FAIR!".

    Someone probably already mentioned the fact that first wave feminists used racist tactics to advance their goals, but it bears repeating if anyone still thinks that equity feminists (who believe the early feminists were moral gods) are focused on equity more than feminism.

    But the fact that NOW actually supported a candidate, which I don't think they have done in the past, shows just how much they dislike Palin's conservative feminism.

    BINGO!

    You would think they'd be happy about "conservative feminism".
