"THE STORY, EVEN IF IT IS A GOOD STORY, IS NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING."
Here is an edit of the article that doesn’t out Dr. V. Or rather, it outs Dr. V as having lied about academic credentials, but not as being transgender.
April 1974 Bruce at my alma mater Swarthmore College. Nymphs and satyrs at outdoor amphitheater with possibly the smallest Springsteen audience ever, Must only be 300 people there. This goes with my playing “Blinded By The Light” for Final Vinyl on the show today.
Did not know! Another alma mater post from my dashboard today: A guy who graduated the year after me is actually a character in a Donna Tartt novel.
Summer Merriment - Frederic Bazille
“In the 1840s and 1850s, white female abolitionists had emphasized the similarities between their own oppressed status as wives and daughters under patriarchy and the debased condition of “the Negro” under slavery. White women, the argument went, could empathize with enslaved peoples because they, as women, experienced a similar oppression due to their sex. White female abolitionists urged white women to engage in political activity on the slave’s behalf: to remonstrate with their own family members, to raise money, to sign petitions, and so forth—in fulfillment of their Christian responsibility to remedy the injustice of slavery. However, new realities had to be addressed as a result of emancipation (1863–1865) and the ratification of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments (1868–1870). Legal recognition of black male citizenship meant that white women could no longer claim a shared political status (disenfranchisement) with black men. White women’s social identities had to be reconstituted to reflect the changing relationship of “woman” and “the Negro.” Where antebellum suffrage ideology often emphasized a common victimhood, postbellum suffrage ideology stressed white women’s racial-cultural superiority to newly enfranchised male constituencies—not just black men, but also naturalized immigrant men.”
