Paglia on ‘Rape Culture’ and the Academy

I always read Camille Paglia with horrified fascination. Still, she is one of the few writers on the left for whom I have any respect. The reason is simple: she has intellectual honesty.

Her new piece on “rape culture” in the Academy is no different. I was transfixed as I watched her butcher two major progressive sacred cows: non-binary gender identification and the so-called “rape culture”. Give it a read if you can stomach the unnerving revelry in what appears to be some kind of sexual brutalism 1.


  1. I really can’t tell if the last sentence is a threat or a lamentation.
