Women As Animals - Cats Again
Charles Osgood talking about tiger moms is too much. Susan Faludi wrote in Backlash that there is a resurgence of angel images when the urge to subvert women is pronounced; animalizing women is the same. Now we're being catted again. Cougars. Tiger moms. I guess the Alaskan ex-guv uses grizzlies because there aren't a lot of wild cats in that part of the world. Her choice. If I'm going to be depicted as an animal, other than the female bipedal primate I truly am, I choose wolf. Enough of the catty stuff.
