The Masculine Genius

I've only seen 5 minutes of this... any good? (I saw enough to hear some features of feminine speech in his way of talking. Some pedestalizing too?)

Vox Day links to Peter Grant for one reaction.

A Means of Limited Effectiveness

It will not destroy identity politics, but it does help, even to a small degree, protect the good of the community. After all, any host community forces newcomers to observe its customs, including language, to protect its culture from being eroded.
