Camille Paglia Social Media


People really get on Camille's wick about her list of who's in and who's out. If they think she's such a wanker, why do they care? Feminists don't like it when she says men can be a source of female empowerment or when she compares Rihanna to Princess Diana. (Source.)


Is she the only one who doesn't think that Lady Gaga is the be all, and end all of pop? You'd think she was attacking the Pope for not being pious enough. (Source.)


Camille doesn't care if you call her a racist: she refuses to take back what she said about black people and Latinos being much better about getting their sexy on. (Source.)
