From blog correspondent Lee Penn
Old feminist screams for attention again
'Germaine Greer is a big name with a big mouth.' — William Feaver, British art critic and biographer of Lucian Freud

I've never read her books (I get the feeling I wasn't in her intended readership anyway) but AFAIK she's not funny and on the mark in spite of herself like Camille Paglia can be.

What strikes me is if she's serious, I'm sure the same radical-chic people who were outraged (along with everybody else) by the gay-priest scandals last year (which they carefully mislabelled 'pædophile' to keep their PC credentials) will give her a pass on it.
