Discussions of “bubbles” of opinion ensues. We must all fear our own confirmation biases.
Why is Camille Paglia so effective, even as she is scorned by the political left? Even as she supports Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein? Why does the outrageous dyke receive so many marriage proposals from elderly white Republicans?
Because she cuts through the bullshit. Because she possesses a power of analysis that consistently proves to be correct and insightful. An American original.
Camille Paglia’s obsessions, insights, and attacks are published in Free Women, Free Men. Anyone who can take Madonna as seriously as Paglia does amuses me. Anyone who can slaughter Lena Dunham as mercilessly as she does deserves my support. “Oscar Wilde was my very first intellectual interest”.
