it was the feminist in the conservatory with the candlestick

Carrie Lucas, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex, and Feminism, thinks that feminism killed chivalry. Watch an interview here.

Looks like a very interesting book - she certainly copped some flak in the Amazon reviews!

The picture link is broken, BTW...

Interview was a little vacuous - talking about opening doors and giving pregnant women a seat on the bus.

This is an interesting one for me on the bus. If I see a pregnant lady or an older lady, I'm comfortable offering her my seat.

But I would feel awkward offering my seat to a younger lady. Yes, it would seem "weird". And you dont want the gesture to be misinterpreted.

That sort of chilvalry really needs everyone reading from the same script...

Wild side? Oh yes indeed. Read my new post. Be shocked. Be amazed. or maybe not. I am your friend, after all. ;-)

CraigS said...

Well done for finding contentment Carmen...

ckhnat said...

Ah yes, my protege ... you have learned well, Young Grasshopper.

CraigS said...

Christine, you aren't allowed to convince ALL the young christian ladies to join the convent...

ckhnat said...

if that's their calling ... why not?

; )

no ... seriously ... Carmen is the exception ... well, kind of ... i was rather influential in an "Arranged Marriage" movement that swept through that church's youth group ...

The book sounds very interesting. It's nice to see supposrt on the opposite side of the feminist movement. I was in high school in the 80's and felt totally alone in my views...which were much more traditional and NOT feminist.

Feminism definitely killed chivalry.

Carmen said...

Craigs, i see you read my blog! I'm flattered.
Oh, i'm not being driven to the convent. I'm rather liking it. Just kidding,christine.
She's just influential in encouraging us to find our identity in Christ, not in our culture's idea of what life should be like.
And she would go somewhere with a guy...if a nice one were brave enough to ask her!
