American Enterprise Institute resident scholar Christina Hoff Sommers joined Bill Maher on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” for very interesting and well-reasoned discussion about where Third Wave Feminism has gone awry.
Those expecting this to be a contentious interview will be disappointed. Sommers and Maher go back to his days hosting “Politically Incorrect” (a brilliant show, by the way) and Maher agrees with pretty much everything Sommers has to say.
The two spend most of the time pointing out and ridiculing the absurdity of leftist victim culture. The greatest example Sommers provides of just how broken and nonsensical the Left has become is when she details how she is now treated when she speaks on college campuses, where she not only needs security, but the universities set up “safe rooms” for the poor dears who are subjected to some opinions differing from their own.
Maher’s language gets salty a couple of times near the end, but most of the video clean. For those unfamiliar with Sommers, she’s always worth listening to.
