Well the Rousseauist thinks she can draw endless resources from innocence and her nature (not Nature itself, in the literary romantic’s sense, but her own nature). Contemporary feminism seems to be going down this particular track of reasoning, too, in supposing that all one reasonably has to do in life is lean back and rely on one’s feminine nature. There’s no desire to build solidarity or trust or anything like that. And then you get such people reviewing your books and they say, “Jennifer is a hysteric because she had to deal with as situation that is not part of my tiny, tiny little world and never will be.”
