Carlos David Londoño Sulkin replied to Kathleen Lowrey's discussion funsexy feminism & female genital cutting in the group Feminist Anthropology
"Thanks for the commendation, Fredric. I have a doubt, though: would you stand by the claim that female genital cutting is 'unappealing at best'? That's where I go back to a relativist stance (based on pragmatic premises rather than on…"

Fredric Hohlen replied to Kathleen Lowrey's discussion funsexy feminism & female genital cutting in the group Feminist Anthropology
"To riff on Carlos' excellent response: Certainly, there is no dearth of anthropological literature - on either side - by women, both in the West and elsewhere. I'd just like to point out that in going after "FGM" as the OP does…"

"I failed to note something in my previous reply - the first article is actually to a great extent by Fuambai Ahmadu, who is a woman. Shweder provided the (short) questions, Ahmadu the (long) answers."

"Kathleen, I promise I'll reply to this in greater depth someday, when gradingteachingetc. give me a break. For now, though, I did want to note that you are just saying that female genital cutting is wrong because it's wrong, period. I…"

Kathleen Lowrey replied to Justin Shaffner's discussion Citizendium and Wikipedia
"there is something deeply comical about lamenting that fact that Wikipedia has "just" 15,000 entries (& counting) in Swahili since its inception. It is appropriate that a lovely, internet-invented phrase exists for Morozov & his…"

Kathleen Lowrey replied to Justin Shaffner's discussion Citizendium and Wikipedia
"Not at all! I had never heard of Citizendium nor Eduzendium before this, and have found Daniel's explications most illuminating. I also have yet to be in any internet forum, anywhere, that didn't go through regular episodes of more…"

"Hey Becky (if I may), it's upsetting to see you so distressed -- if you go back through the thread, I think you'll see the conversation headed south around the time PCS jumped in rather nastily; I think Keith was responding to that more…"

funsexy feminism & female genital cutting

Have people seen the latest issue of Anthropology Today? Two articles -- both by men -- addressing the issue of female genital cutting & how feminists are wrong to be concerned about it; that, in fact, even thinking of it as a feminist issue is a manifestation of ethnocentrism. It turns out it totes is not about hating on women's bodies as some feminists have tried to suggest-- it's about great, great sliced-off clitoris sex. While photos of the white male authors of these pieces are not…See More

Kathleen Lowrey replied to Justin Shaffner's discussion Citizendium and Wikipedia
"but people can go and learn from the hard work of authors for free! Without buying their works! Don't authors have to eat? Sure, the library buys their books but one copy can be viewed by an essentially infinite number of patrons. I would think…"

Kathleen Lowrey commented on Keith Hart's group Economic anthropology
"I like to think of the ethnographic record as tracking not the limits of possibility, but the lack thereof... As a feminist, I'd be filled with despair if I thought the only possible models were the ones human societies have already tried.…"

"Beck J -- what is your position on the existence of public libraries? Do they shock you to the core?"
Nov 25, 2009
Kathleen Lowrey commented on Keith Hart's group Economic anthropology
"this discussion points to one of the important distinctions of perspective between anthropology and economics -- from the individual perspective (the one econ uses), scarcity looms large with respect to everything -- money, time, knowledge,…"

Kathleen Lowrey commented on Keith Hart's group Economic anthropology
"Geoff -- I can see what you mean, but it's worth noting that there is no such thing as a zero-sum currency. Governments just decide how much money to print; there isn't a global Fort Knox anywhere anymore for which you can trade in cash…"

Kathleen Lowrey commented on Keith Hart's group Economic anthropology
"Luke -- maybe I have misunderstood your point, but I think you might be doing the lefty version of the economic fantasy of "getting the prices right". I mean, it's probably much worse than you think -- if you divide the money you earn…"
