Quote of the Day II

Scott Lemieux on Caitlin Flanagan:

There really is someone being paid handsomely by a prominent national magazine in 2012 explaining that the success of women should be evaluated based solely on their ability to maintain sexual purity as teenagers and on their ability to be servile spouses and child-rearers as adults. She really does seem to believe that theres no sexual middle ground between remaining wholly ignorant about human sexuality and giving blowjobs to random strangers. Shes like a character in a draft of an Alan Ball script but one that he rejected for being too heavy-handed and unfair to suburban mothers.
