I saw a documentary on Paglia and thought she had an interesting thought
proccess. I looked up some of her stuff on the web and didn't take long to
conclude that she is just plain fucked up.
Here's an example:
"As far as Ginsberg's pro-NAMBLA stand goes, this is one of the things I
most admire him for. I have repeatedly protested the lynch-mob hysteria that
dogs the issue of man-boy love. In "Sexual Personae," I argued that male

I wouldn't be surprised if she dumped Nader tommorow to support David Duke
as president, then dumped him the next day to supprt Ronald McDonald.
Not to completely dismiss her. There are a lot of just-plain-fucked-up
people who end up stumbling upon a truth once in a while. And like I said,
her thought proccess is interesting.
