How a feminist would see the story of Icarus

See? When readers send me stuff I post it.

This was forwarded to me by everyone's new pal Chris M who got it from a UMich alum working at the University of Maryland. The last paragraph is gold.


Feminists hate men lol

My favourite is "Crete was an island and since King Minos would not let him leave..."

A cruel king for not letting the island leave.

I like how the feminists would view Daedalus a a "bad parental figure" because "he was the father of the child and not the mother." So, all fathers are crappy parental figures because they didn't give birth to their children?

Man, that definitely makes sense.

I like the line "he was the father of the child and not the mother" for the lack of clarity. It's sad that he was not the father of the mother...or was it that the mother would've made a better father?.

WHUT. This is supposedly a "feminist" reading, but feminism only gets squashed in the last tiny paragraph? I got lambasted for including too much plot summary in my papers; I hope this person did, too.

I'm focusing on the mechanics on the paper so I don't rant about the utterly stupid interpretation of a feminist reading.
