Fighting The Dragon By Lee C. Rice. Ph.D.
“Some years ago feminist and gay rhetoric brought into common use a number of conceptual categories for describing those who oppose feminist and gay liberation. My first task in this essay will be to attempt to disentangle and explicate some of these notions. My reason for doing so is in fact a twofold one. First, the terms themselves are rather ambiguous and shifting in the current literature; and my proposed and slightly tighter meanings, if acceptable to others, would allow a greater degree of clarity and uniformity in the current literature. Second, it is important to know one's enemy, so that conceptual ambiguity often constitutes an underlying cause of confused social or political strategics within the movements for sexual liberation.
Following the taxonomic considerations, I want to move to a few moral, and then political, recommendations and problems. I keep these separate from the category questions because they are more controversial and one may well choose to adopt the categories and reject my normative proposals.
The term 'sexist? in its core and fundamental meaning characterizes anything which promotes or exploits irrelevant or socially contingent markings of the distinction between the sexes. Sexism is, in a nutshell, the position that "anatomy is destiny"; and that those social roles, conditions, and practices which mark the distinction between the sexes at a particular stage in the evolution of society are somehow right, proper, or fitting in some fixed sense. Sexism is, then, an anti-evolutionary position; but more of its relation to the scientific worldview later.
Though not usually used in a neutral sense, the term
"sexist" can be used in such a way that it remains neutral with respect to what (if any) advantages are to be associated with the distinction between the sexes. As standardly used, the term denotes those markings which associate the advantages to the male of the spe cies; but I wish to use it here in the neutral sense. Sexism which advantages the male can be called rather
"phallism", a term coined by some feminist writers.
This term is better than the more popular "male chauvinist" because, as we are often reminded by feminist writers, many women (e.g., Anita Bryant) are phallists; whereas the term "male chauvinist" suggests that only males can be sexists.
The term "sexist" may be used to characterize…”
