I don’t know whether to laugh or cry about this.  Mostly it makes me want to cry, but what I mostly end up doing is laughing.  However, it is not a joyful laugh.  It is the result of being so angry and baffled and speechless all at once that I don’t know what else to do, and there’s not much else I can do… I had to stop reading and put the article down, I was getting so upset.  It just seems so ignorant and poorly thought-out (if it was given any thought at all!)  It’s pretty clear that the author hasn’t had any sort of education or even informed discussion at all in the field of gender or women’s studies, which is all the more frustrating that this was published in the university’s newspaper… It amazes and saddens me that people still think like this and believe that these are valid(?!?!) arguments.
