For the first half hour we talk about the Ukrainian war and the attempted assassination of Russian novelist Zakhar Prilepin. Then we move on to our main discussion: Mary Harrington’s Feminism Against Progress. We were hoping to extract something positive out of this thing, instead we got a book so weird and incoherent and badly written it was actually funny. Separation of sexes, joyless procreation, medieval-style peasant nuclear families built on solemn duty…it’s all there in her utopia.
