And While We're On the Subject of Inappropriate

I noticed this item about misogyny in an academic department over at Jill's blog. Check your whats at the door?!! A comment like the one made by the history prof in question, made around these parts, would likely register at least a 6.5 on the Richter scale - can be destructive in areas where people live. Indeed.

You have to see this one to believe it. Harvey Mansfield's provocative book titled - "Manliness."

Forty years of post-structuralism, deconstructionism, egalitarianism whiffed up by a Mills n Boons fantasy.

I very nearly broke my lap top listening to him being interviewed by Naomi Wolf: http://www.booktv.org/feature/index.asp?segid=6898&schedID=408

Why shouldn't the women check their vaginas at the door? Clearly other body parts--the brain, for example--are not considered requirements by the prof.
