"actually presents the clearest possible image of the castrating female"

That sounds like something Helen Cixous would come up with. I thought I escaped that crap once I was paroled from college?

Did you look at the image?

You don't have to be a French feminist to see castration in that image!

I looked at the image.

My comment was a compliment, actually, because I got the sense that your son meant that rather acerbically.

Do I need to get the sarcasm sledgehammer out?

Okay. Touché.

Poor Chris had to read some of that stuff in college.

I did film studies in college, so I had to read a lot of French theory stuff, particularly in relation to images.
