Stacy McCain has published another penetrating [pun intended?] mini-essay on the Ideology of Feminism, entitled: The Feminist-Industrial Complex: Fat Lesbians vs. the 'Heteronormative Gaze' — the title tells you exactly what to expect from it. It is, as with everything he writes on the subject, well-worth a read [and contemplation].
An interesting exchange occurred in the Comments section to this post…
I bought your book. I still think there are saner varieties of feminism that I find common ground with — “equity feminism” a la Christine Hoff Sommers, or the work of the Independent Women’s Forum — and that the extreme form of feminism that you portray in the book should properly be called gynosupremacism.
But Holy. Mother. Of. Pork. The authors you are quoting at length in your book do read like a study in psychopathology. No wonder one gets attacked for merely quoting them accurately: their worst enemy is their own words.
In fewer words:
Shaking my head at heterosexual capitalist Republican women who want to say “We’re feminists, too!” No, you’re not. Pay attention, please.

Then Adobe Walls chimed-in with his usual spot-on pithiness:
Feminism is mere leftism, making the solution obvious.
…what’s your problem?
