Camille Paglia, 2017.

Camille Paglia is a well known feminist who speaks out about problems with modern feminism and the problems facing men and boys. While Paglia's advocacy for problems facing men and boys is to be applauded, MRAs generally consider her to be a traditional gynocentrist.

Paglia's surname is pronounced pah-lia.


"Millions of kids are being maimed right now on Ritalin. I would have been given Ritalin. And there would have been no Sexual Personae, no nothing. We are castrating a whole generation of kids." [1][2]

"Men have sacrificed and crippled themselves physically and emotionally to feed, house, and protect women and children. None of their pain or achievement is registered in feminist rhetoric, which portrays men as oppressive and callous exploiters."[3][4]

"The theatrics of public rage over date rape are [feminists'] way of restoring the old sexual rules that were shattered by my generation. Because nothing about the sexes has really changed. The comic film Where the Boys Are (1960), the ultimate expression of '50s man-chasing, still speaks directly to our time. It shows smart, lively women skillfully anticipating and fending off the dozens of strategies with which horny men try to get them into bed. The agonizing date rape subplot and climax are brilliantly done. The victim, Yvette Mimieux, makes mistake after mistake, obvious to the other girls. She allows herself to be lured away from her girlfriends and into isolation with boys whose character and intentions she misreads. Where the Boys Are tells the truth. It shows courtship as a dangerous game in which the signals are not verbal but subliminal."

In 2015 Ms Paglia mentioned Taylor Swift in an essay and said:

"Swift herself should retire that obnoxious Nazi Barbie routine of wheeling out friends and celebrities as performance props."[5][6]
