Simply let her be.
She is a one woman show; a swirling vortex; a combustible combination of contradictions. Camille Paglia is a feminist who hates feminism… A self-described, “dissident feminist.” A defender of Western Civilization. She’s a writer, a teacher, a critic of all things old and new. A seat next to her at a dinner party could initiate the most wonderful or most miserable night of your life. You would absolutely not remember anything you ate, if you were able to eat at all.
She is concurrently the most down to earth horse-sense philosopher and the most ivory tower intellectual imaginable.
In her opinion, the statement that best characterizes her intellect is this: “God is man’s greatest idea.” Five words that invite an exasperating breadth of interpretation. It’s otherwise almost impossible to misunderstand her intent in the bulk of her work where she “looks into the latrine of culture.”
Know this about Camille, though: if you are authentically yourself, if you live your life to the fullest, if you are truly original and unique in the world, she will celebrate you with you. If you are none of these things… well, what a pity.
