A Lesbian Academic on Homosexual Orthodoxy

Not all “gays” or Lesbians buy into the irrational homosexual orthodoxy that is popular in the media and with the Supreme Court. Back in the nineties I really appreciated Camille Paglia’s Sexual Personae and her first book of essays. But I missed her second book. While researching on homosexuality I stumbled on this web page of quotations from an essay in her book Vamps and Tramps. Even though this is from the nineties I think her observations are still quite relevant today. So I’m reproducing Read more […]

Camille Paglia Is Right and Wrong About the National Drinking Age

I loved  Camille Paglia’s great piece at the Time site: “The Drinking Age Is Past Its Prime.” I think every conservative should read it. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act, passed by Congress 30 years ago this July, is a gross violation of civil liberties and must be repealed. It is absurd and unjust that young Americans can vote, marry, enter contracts and serve in the military at 18 but cannot buy an alcoholic drink in a bar or restaurant. The age-21 rule sets the U.S. apart from all Read more […]

Contra Feminists: Camille Paglia Predicts Apocalypse And The Need For Men

Camille Paglia is neither a conservative nor a libertarian. If you asked her about her religious views, I believe she would tell you that she is a pagan. I’m not sure that is the most truthful way to answer the question. As far as I can tell she is a Darwinian atheist, albeit an honest and observant one. Her sexual ethics is certainly far from Christian teaching. In her recent Time Magazine piece, she pretty much shatters the anti-men attitudes of “second- and third-wave feminism” Is it Read more […]

Camille Paglia Gets Deep Under the Skin of Liberals

Tracy Clark-Floury, staff writer for Salon Magazine, by her own admission “did not always agree with Paglia, but I enjoyed her as a challenging provocateur.” Floury’s use of the past tense is somewhat puzzling. Ms. Paglia is not dead. She is, in fact, the lively subject of the interview published in Salon on Wednesday. Ms. Paglia is the quasi-notorious subject of liberal adoration. She is literate, intelligent and honest. But why is Ms. Paglia considered quasi-notorious? Because she is a Read more […]

Huffington Post Helps to Rewrite Homosexual History

Finding justification for perversion is a full time job these days. Consider John Boswell, an admitted homosexual who died from AIDS. For years Boswell had been trying to prove that homosexuality is supported by the Bible. He tried to make a case for homosexuality in his poorly argued Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality (see my critique here). Boswell entered the debate a second time in 1994 with Same-Sex Unions in Premodern Europe. In this bit of revisionist historiography, Boswell Read more […]
