Oh she's just a genius!

Bulletin: Danica Patrick finally won an indy car race. NOT THE RACE. Not the 500.

I know most people probably thought she has been winning races for years, given the adulation she receives in the press.

But, no. She did finally, finally win something.

Big Freaking deal.

Remember what Rush Limbaugh said about the press being eager for a black quarterback to do well because he was a black quarterback. Same thing, basically. It's about multicultural milestones, rather than actual achievement.

The larger problem in the overall culture is the devaluing of men, boys, and maleness. Women can achieve almost anything, and enjoy equal rights and respect, without trashing men and masculinity. But feminism generally, and gender politics, is all about trashing men.

I remember several years ago hearing on NPR some feminist psychologist discussing how there might eventually be mandatory estrogen shots for men and boys to make them "better"--less agressive (ha!) and more "balanced" (ha!) and so on. Yet when I brought this obviously idiotic statement up with some chicks who considered themselves feminists, they all said I was making it up. No feminist had ever said anything like that! Who was I going to believe, them or my lying ears?

I went to art school, which was full of feminazis. I remember one Canadian uber-feminist did this huge drawing of herself as a clawed harpy, on top of her boyfriends back, talons embedded in it. Sheesh! Even one of my more liberal (male) friends just shook is head. "If some chick did something like that with me . . . "

The feminists at art school also boycotted life drawing classes, because the teacher (another very liberal guy) had been using some classic 17th and 18th century nudes as examples of line and form. That was sexist! That gender-exploitive art from the Renaissance and after should all be redacted!

One of the many reasons art school was the beginning of the end of me considering myself a liberal.
