Anonymous said: Re: The Virginia Woolfe quote. She's talking about the masculine point of view that overwhelmingly dominates culture (now as well as back then). She does not at all say that she detests every man. Her husband may have been 'virtuous and honorable', but this is in a private context rather than as a representative of the overall tone of society. As an author, she was trying to set herself apart from this tired point of view but she still had a great personal relationship with her husband.
That’s fine, but the vast majority of those 50,000 bloggers never read “The Years.” They don’t intellectualize the statement as you have done.
This post, in its context (or more accurately out of its context) was intended purely as anti masculine harangue. It’s directed at a straw man without sighting an actual culprit.
Feminism portrays all women as the constant victim of a white male misogyny while adoring real sexual predators and the spouses that enable their behavior.

“I detest the masculine point of view. I am bored by his heroism, virtue, and honour. I think the best these men can do is not talk about themselves anymore.”— Virginia Woolf
On March 28, 1941 Woolf put on her overcoat, filled its pockets with stones, walked into the River Ouse and drowned herself. Her husband buried her remains under an elm at their home.
Last note to her husband she wrote in part: ”I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good.”
(Hmm, A virtuous and honorable man? and no doubt her hero to the bitter end)

I had one petulant follower fall off my rolls and I’m sure there were more, less inclined to say so, that stopped following as well. But comments have been positive, about ten to one….
