THE POLITICAL IS...

THE POLITICAL IS POLITICAL. This Time column by Caitlin Flanagan is, indeed, all kinds of bad. Amidst all the usual tropes common to the unfortunate "the party left me, I didn't leave the party" op-ed subgenre, there's a particular claim by Flanagan in here that's really comically disingenuous. Flanagan says her new collection of essays, To Hell With All That, is "not a book about social policy or alternative lifestyles or anything even vaguely political," but rather a series of personal ruminations for which she's now being unfairly pilloried. She herself has said publicly that the subtitle she had originally chosen for the book was "How Feminism Shortchanged a Generation." Nothing political to see here, folks´┐Ż
