"A Handmaid’s Tale" bleibt Schullektüre in Kanada

In der kanadischen National Post schreibt Barbara Kay:

A parent of a Grade 12 Toronto high school student petitioned for the removal from the school’s reading list of The Handmaid’s Tale, a 1986 novel by the queen of Canadian literature, Margaret Atwood.

(But)in Ms. Atwood’s conspiracy-theorist feminist universe, women are victims, men masters of their fates. Women cannot be seen as opportunistic or exploitative, and men cannot be seen as themselves victims or objects of pity.

The Handmaid’s Tale is a nasty, anti-American trifecta of bigotry: a cheap thrust at men, conservatives and religious Christians.

It is not a “cautionary tale,” as one Atwood admirer characterized it in Monday’s news story. For here we are 23 years later. Forced-breeding camps? Hardly. Politically and culturally, women’s issues rule; abortion is rampant; fatherlessness is pandemic. It is men–insofar as their traditional roles as providers, progenitors and protectors are concerned — who are the endangered social species.
