Wonderful Women Spotlight: Camille Paglia


A feminist is always someone who goes against the grain, and Camille Paglia goes across the grain more than most feminists do. An American academic and social critic, Camille Paglia calls herself the feminist all the other feminists love to hate and after reading some of her quips it’s easy to see why she holds that title. An obvious fan of ‘devil’s advocate’ arguing, Camille makes statements that fly in the face of most feminist and queer activist work, criticising all without pity. However, I can’t help but appreciate Paglia, even if I can’t help but think of her as an academic troll. Whether you love, loathe, or fear her you cannot deny that she does come up with some brilliant quotes:


 Woman is the dominant sex.
 Everyone of my generation who preached free love is responsible for AIDS.
 I'm absolutely a feminist. The reason other feminists don't like me is that I criticize the movement, explaining that it needs a correction. Feminism has betrayed women, alienated men and women, replaced dialogue with political correctness.
 The feminist line is, strippers and topless dancers are degraded, subordinated, and enslaved; they are victims, turned into objects by the display of their anatomy. But women are far from being victims — women rule; they are in total control … the feminist analysis of prostitution says that men are using money as power over women. I'd say, yes, that's all that men have. The money is a confession of weakness. They have to buy women's attention. It's not a sign of power; it's a sign of weakness. (As quoted in Sexuality and Gender (2002) by Christine R. Williams and Arlene Stein, p. 213)
These are only a few of the things this brilliant woman has said. Whether you love her or hate her, Camille Paglia is provocative. Her books include Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickinsno; Sex, Art and American Culture; Vamps and Tramps; Break, Blow, Burn; and Glittering Images.

"Hi everyone! Dr Unity is the best spell caster to help fix your broken relationship or get your Ex-Lover back fast,Read my testimony and contact him now:Unityspelltemple@gmail.com.
My ex and i had been to gether for 3 years. We both are mature adult (i'm 33 and he is 44). I broke up with him at the end of January because of the constant quarrels and unmet emotional need. Not long after, he found out that during the period, i met a guy friend whom i contacted pretty often because initially i was looking for advice from male perspective. My ex was desperate and begged me to be back with him for 3 weeks in February. He told me that he knew where he had gone wrong and willing to change. I rejected him but told him that i need time and space to think about it. I was considering to give him that chance. On the last week of February, he begged me for the last time. Few days after when i wanted to get back to him, he told me that he found someone else (a girl in vietnam from vietnam dating website) and that he did not want to get back to me anymore. I was so upset but thought that nothing much of it. We still keep in contact once in awhile thereafter but i didn't beg him anymore. 3 weeks after, i found out that he had flown to vietnam to meet the girl. Yesterday i found out as well that he posted pictures of them on Facebook (he unfriended me but his friend told me about the pictures). I was devastated. The new girl looks alot like me! Plus knowing how well he cares about his image to be the good guy, it took a great deal of thoughts to post those photos knowing that people knew he just break up with me... is what he has a rebound? What do i do to get him back? I needed him back desperately because i loved him so much. I became very worried and needed help. as i was browsing through the internet, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Unity can help get ex back fast and stop a divorce or breakup and so on , So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a (return Love spell) for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came back to me crying and begging for my forgiveness. Today I'm so happy and i want to recommend this great spell caster to anyone that truly needs an urgent solution to his or her broken relationships and marriage. Simply contact the great "Dr.Unity" If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you., email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2348071622464 ,you can also visit his website:http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com ."
