And Then There Were None, I Mean IX (Title IX, That Is)

by Carol Iannone

Whether radical or moderate, whether fading or flourishing, feminism does seem to govern our lives. The latest is this sad story of Temple University and other colleges eliminating men’s sports teams, some of them longstanding traditions at their schools, in order to comply with Title IX.  If there is a more reasonable side to feminism, why doesn’t it show its face in lobbying and other kinds of activist efforts to prevent this kind of needless destructiveness, which, so far from enhancing human potential, bespeaks a hateful, vengeful, envious, and leveling state of mind?
