Just like everything else


Speaking with interviewer Matthew Street about her new book, “Outrages,” author Naomi Wolf, who was an advisor to both Bill Clinton and Al Gore and wrote a famous feminist book, “The Beauty Myth,” that was reportedly chock-full of inaccuracies, found one premise of her new book eviscerated when Street pointed out she had completely misunderstood a legal term.

Wolf had decided that there were several dozen executions of men for sodomy but did not understand that that fact was incorrect because she didn’t understand the legal term “death recorded.”

    If, in studying a well-recorded and much-studied period such as Victorian England, one thinks that one has stumbled across an entirely unknown holocaust of poofs, one would be wise to consider the possibility that one is mistaken.

    And her PhD supervisor and examiners should be defenestrated. Or something that ends in “strated” anyway.
