Know Your Enemy

"Jezebel is gender fascism. By not having any real critical facility to understand, in their case, men in relationship to women (presumably them) they opt to promote hate by imperialist blather. By couching it in feminism is a distinct lack of class, but i'm sure they're having a bit of online fun and when they grow up maybe they'll glean the complexities of real life and love."

Thurston Moore lashes out at feminist website Jezebel for calling him a "dick" for the affair with Eva Prinz that ended his marriage to Kim Gordon (and brought the curtain down on Sonic Youth). It was Jezebel that joined the dots from the clues in Gordon's Elle interview and first named Prinz as the other woman - something which earned them flak from some feminists who accused them of perpetuating the stereotype of the female marriage-wrecker.
