Someone at The American Prospect Please Give This Kid a Job Already

8 Nov

I was going to write a post in response to Susan Faludi’s new book, The Terror Dream, but Young MZ did one better and got himself a spot at TPM Cafe’s book club discussion with Faludi herself.  His post is a strong rejoinder to the sort of weak socio-political analysis that tries to suggest causal relationships from nationwide events (in this case, 9/11 and the War on Terror as an excuse to advance the narrative of masculine strength at the expense of women everywhere).

And TAP better hurry, before someone pages Franklin Foer

    Hi,
    There, I just came across your blog. I’ll be back. I’m just going to follow the links you’ve provided in this post. I have a thing for male bloggers who blog about masculinity. Thanks. Returning shortly.

    He should have read the book first if he was going to disagree. That way his arguments would hold more weight. Reading the book (which I never heard of by the way) and then reading any sources she cites so as to educate himself about the reason for her approach would do more than simply allow him to rebutt, he would also have learned and grown in the process which at seventeen, is more the name of the game, than writing an intelligent sounding review.
