Quote of the day: getting along in the Patriarchy

This quote of the day comes from commenter Pantsuit Sally, over at I Blame the Patriarchy; it comes in response to a critique of a misogynist 1960s film titled: “How To Murder Your Wife.”

All you need to know to get along in the [Patriarchy]: infinite examples in pop culture in which the audience can sympathize with a female character’s murderer=perfectly reasonable, not misogynist; Andrea Dworkin asking men not to rape us=psycho castrating feminazi.

Can’t work out how to link to individual comments, but it appears at 9.53 am on November 5.
