New Cartoon: "Harvey Mansfield's Manliness Manual"
Blogger is being all funny on me, so just read the cartoon here.
As a Harvard alum, I've loathed conservative government professor Harvey "Women have no courage and men shouldn't have to do housework" Mansfield for a long time. But I never had the occasion to comment about the man until talk radio hosts and TV shows started pretending his completely worthless new book Manliness was a work of serious scholarship. Here's a scary NPR interview in which Katha Pollitt valiantly tries to get him to admit he's crazy and sexist for insisting women have no courage and are naturally inferior to men. And here's a great piece by Ruth Marcus from the Washington Post, Man Overboard.
