On arrogance: A reply to Lynne Segal Thompson, Denise en_US 2021-11-25T13:43:18Z 2021-11-25T13:43:18Z 1998 en_US
dc.description.abstract This brief commentary is a response to an accusation of 'arrogance' levelled against me because I had claimed to identify 'the' feminist position on heterosexuality in my two replies to Wendy Hollway. I agree with the accuser that that was indeed what I was doing, but disagree that this justifies the ad hominem name-calling. I point out that what is at stake is a disagreement about the meaning of feminism, and the accuser's inability to see male domination as the central problematic of feminism. en_US
