This Is Going To Drive Feministas More Crazy Than a Male Sexist Gorilla

If feministas think a male sexist gorilla is a problem, wait until they learn about University of Toronto English professor David Gilmour. 

Says Gilmour, “I’m not interested in teaching books by women[...] Usually at the beginning of the semester a hand shoots up and someone asks why there aren’t any women writers in the course. I say I don’t love women writers enough to teach them, if you want women writers go down the hall. What I teach is guys. Serious heterosexual guys. F. Scott Fitzgerald, Chekhov, Tolstoy. Real guy-guys. Henry Miller. Philip Roth. ”


  1. What would really rankle feminists if that gorilla picked up a Hemingway novel and began reading it in post-therapeutic session, after-hour review.

  2. Should I even admit this? I'm an old lady, and still laughing at the "feministas"...
    Check out this great article from Taki's Magazine on "Dudebros"... Got your back!
    (Nothing better than a 'Real Man'... )

  3. I sure hope the gorilla being sexist bit is a hoax. It's just got to be. It's just too mentally insane to be real. If it is then the people who are accusing a gorilla of sexism (I can't believe I'm even having to write this!) should go to a psychiatric ward.

  4. He'll be demonized while if it was a woman wanting to teach only female readers she'd be praised for "empowering" (this politically correct word is getting OLD) women.

  5. Poor gorilla. He needs help to get that monkey off his back.

  6. When I was a younger and far more single man in the 1980s and 90s, long before Mrs. Anonymous agreed to lovingly contracted partnership with yours truly, I played music in college towns and frequently met "Women's Studies Majors" (the modern female inverse of the once male-dominated "Theological Studies"). With the dumbest deadpan I could muster, I'd always ask if Women's Studies was like Home Economics, y'know...cookin', cleanin' and clippin' coupons.

    If they grokked to the fact that I was playing with them (not often), they generally turned out to be pretty cool ladies, but there are few things more grim than an Orthodox Women's Studies Major. They're like commissars with even less charm.

    Mrs. Anonymous was NOT a Women's Studies major, btw. She was a very sensible Business major with a fondness for anarcho-musicians.

    BTW, love the blog, RW.
