I don’t agree with Naomi Wolf on everything, but here are important ideas from her which I thoroughly admire:
In The Beauty Myth she wrote:
“….. in terms of how we feel about ourselves physically, we may actually be worse off than our unliberated grandmothers.” 1991
She later wrote that sexuality “should be held sacred.” That is her way of what I say with the words “a gift from God.”
In 2008, she described an appropriate channeling of sexuality as being “toward marriage, the bonds that sustain family Life, and the attachment that secures a home.”
In 2021, Wolf said that Covid-19 restrictions were turning America “into a totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes,”
Yesterday, this truly and deeply beautiful Naomi has apologised to the enormous numbers of peaceful conservatives and Republicans targeted by Democrats over January 6.
Can I say, “Thanks, Babe.”?
The God-given human right of freedom of speech says that I can.
God Bless Naomi Wolf.
