Bob Parks,

I enjoyed your last post on feminism, and it seems to me that you did
undestand my point about feminism and postmodernism. Let me just add
that I think the metaphor of "oppression" leads us into these militant
postures of overthrowing the oppressor. I prefer the metaphor
"marginalized" to "oppressed" because it leads into different responses
to the problem. To fix the "oppression" we must overthrow. To fix the
"marginalization" we must learn to notice and call attention to.
