Margaret Mead

by Phyllis Chesler

1977—I flew to Cincinnati to debate the late, great Margaret Mead on the subject of feminism. She was against it; I was for it. I recount our conversation in A Politically Incorrect Feminist and I write about our subsequent relationship in With Child: A Diary of Motherhood.

A Politically Incorrect Feminist was published in 2018. With Child: A Diary of Motherhood was also published in 2018. Ms. Chesler's fake post is not anything but an advertisement for two of her books that are three years old. I don't get it. Why didn't Ms. Chesler discuss her debate with Mead in the post itself? Why didn't Ms. Chesler discuss the substance of the two books? So, the reader gets no substance at all in the fake post except for a teaser for two of her books. The title is also misleading. The fake post is not at all about "Margaret Mead" but should be titled "Two books by Ms. Chesler that Ms. Chesler wants you to buy." This is really embarrassing, honestly. I have an old lawn mower I'd like to sell. Can I post a fake post on New English Review to sell it? I have some pictures, too. It's three years old, just like Ms. Chesler's books. And one of my neighbors who is a noted archaeologist borrowed it once, so it's historically valuable. This will of course increase the value and the price of the lawn mower but if you reply to the fake post on New English Review I will give you a discount. I can include a coupon and even a recording of the mower running and a photograph of the noted archaeologist mowing his lawn with my lawn mower. If I do all these things I've given far more substance about my lawn mower than Ms. Chesler did about her books.

Lou, don't be silly. There may have been a revised edition of With child published later, but the original pub date is 1979. Phyllis celebrates the great women she has known - so what?

Rebecca, Will you run my lawn mower advertisement? Margaret Meade once borrowed it.

Lou: I see nothing wrong with someone sharing a photograph, or mentioning works of hers that concern the subject of said photograph. The younger Miss Chesler looks very different from her present self in the picture, and I find that alone an interesting thing.
