Misogynist sexist objectification of any author or their work is absolutely
unacceptable on this list.
If we are ever going to move forward in this field towards a body of
knowledges that is anything other than over-determined by a particularly
gendered history this kind of signifying practice can not be condoned.
You have almost managed in practical terms to have a private men's club,
with a few women relegated to the wings. If this really is the intent, then
be clear about it and the rest of us can move elsewhere.
