I am Charlotte Simmons and Conservative Feminists

I have begun read Tom Wolfe's latest opus, and although, as usual, I don't agree with his political slant, it is, as usual, a good read.

Along the lines of Wolfe's novel, Kerry Howley, over the libertarian Reason, has a take on the woe is me conservative feminists and their complaints about campus diversity. (You can read the article here.)

It has always seemed to me that conservatives complaints about liberal biases on campuses are nothing more than conservative whining. After all, I don't complain about the lack of diversity in corporate boardrooms or in corporate management. How about this, I'll make you a deal - 50/50 split between liberals and conservatives on campuses and in upper corporate management. Any takers?

(This also serves to underscore my growing believe that Libertarians would feel more at home in the Democratic Party than in the GOP.)
