Sexism 101

Here's a super sexist article, "Stripper poles: New feminism?" from the Philadelphia Inquirer today. My favorite part is where he claims "Post-feminists argue that the pole is empowering. If a young woman chooses to use it, they say, she is telling the world that she is in charge of her sexuality," while failing to quote even one "post-feminist" in the article. In addition to the complete lack of academic research, he throws around tired sex stereotypes and words like "slut."

If you're pissed, contact the paper or email Mr. Lubrano directly.
