Subject: Comment: Where Have All The Women Gone?
Long time ago...
It is not because they are unequipped to deal with questions of
interpretation or because they do not fancy literature that they have
left this field to the men. It is because what characterizes this forum
is incivility and radical confrontation. There is no forum that I know
of to take the place of "shaksper" intellectually, since old comfortable
forums are now devoted solely to high school students. So where do
polite, tolerate women find a discussion place? They do not as long as
they remain true to the standards that they typify.
