Well, I'll just repost this then:
Some of the greatest poets in the world had severely distorted views of womankind. Shakespeare often had objectionable comments about women in his work.
It is in my opinion that Morrissey's comment about being "humasexual" should come into play here. It's not about the gender, but about the person. Not people, but person. Throughout the book, Morrissey berated a lot of his colleagues...both men and women. Obviously - that's why so many of his male acquaintances have been up in arms since the books release. But, you know, I remember when Michael Stipe said, years ago, that Morrissey was hard to deal with (I can't remember the exact quote. Something like he was a major drama queen of sorts.)
I'm not trying to justify what Morrissey says about women. I think women, if they are to be in his company, have to resemble women in his family. What he's used to - what he can relate to. Or at least have a bit of Linder in them...
He's not criticizing gender or character. He is assassinating our biological features--our sex--our femaleness, things which we can't possibly change. It is misogynistic for that very reason. Like hating on blacks for the color of their skin--things they can't change.
