Womyn

In the land of the rococo Marxists by Tom Wolfe

May I offer an arch and perhaps familiar but clear example? Recently I came across a woman at one of our top universities who taught a course in Feminist Theory and gave her students F’s if they spelled the plural of the female of the species “women” on a test or in a paper. She insisted on “womyn,” since the powers that be, at some point far back in the mists of history, had built male primacy in to the very language itself by making “women” 60 percent “men.” How did the students react? They shrugged. They have long since learned the futility of objecting to Rococo Marxism. They just write “womyn” and go about the business of grinding out a credit in the course.

One student told me the only problem was that when she wrote her papers on her word processor and used spell check, all hell broke loose. “You get these little wavy red lines all over the screen, under ‘womyn.’ Spell check doesn’t have ‘womyn’. Then she shrugged. “Or at least mine doesn’t.”

I hate womyn even more than I hate women.

And this is what feminists are promoting when they bleat about women having “access” to “higher education”. In order to allow more than a tiny minority of women to colleges, colleges had to stop teaching anything remotely challenging and instead concentrate on encouraging brainless tarts to force their students to spell incorrectly. This is the result of the farce of pretending that women are equal to men.

    For heaven's sake, she could have disabled the spell checker. If little wavy red lines were the worst problem we had with feminism the world would be a better place. I read somewhere that "Black Studies" are akin to unicorn physiology. I'd say that applies even more to "Women's Studies".
