Follow up to women in Kunstler's fiction

GoldfishNaBloPoMoJulySmall


I mirrored James Howard Kunstler swims against the stream on gender role equality, too to my LiveJournal, where a lively discussion resulted. In particular, pay attention to this thread, in which commenters provided even more examples of Kunstler's misogyny and masculism, such as Kunstler's review of "Master and Commander."

The commenter Nebris has a special perspective. Kunstler was his summer camp counselor at Camp Mascoma during the early 1960s, so Nebris has known him for a long time. For his insights, I recommend you read his entry In Which Her Prophet Cogitates Upon The Deeper Motivations Of Two Doomers. One of the two doomers is Kunstler, and Nebris' observations take new meaning in light of what I wrote yesterday. The other is John Michael Greer, the Archdruid. Nebs has even more pointed things to say about him. I plan to post commentaries on Nebris' observations of both of them as part of this month's series on bloggers swimming against the stream. Nebs himself will not be immune. He'll have his time in the spotlight this month as well.
