As left-brained, conserva-libertarian suburbanites, one can imagine that womens’ studies and feminism are not our strong suit. However, we’ve had a mad crush on Camille Paglia, our imaginary lesbian Western Classicist girlfriend, for years.

And that's just 20 minutes of our three-hour conversation.
Judging by the way social media has been blowing up over the linked article over the weekend, it’s like everybody has just awakened to what she has been saying for over two decades.
