Toward a more inclusive bigotry

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 15, 2003

It was only a matter of time, I suppose. A University of Pittsburgh sociologist contends that female members of hate groups are correcting for masculinist bias:

Some women Klan members describe the groups as too male-oriented, she said. Some Klan women tell of having abortions, using birth control pills or taking their children to Jewish doctors without their husbands' knowledge.

Unlike men, almost every woman interviewed admitted to maintaining a connection with someone on the outside -- a black or homosexual friend, a Jewish co-worker or someone else the group would condemn, Blee said.
