A conservative message you’ll never hear at National Review

At his blog, Terry Morris calls this recent remark of mine the “quotation of the day”:

When, in the name of equality, you introduce women into institutions and areas of life that have always been male dominated, you inevitably alter the character of those institutions.

Why did the statement impress him? Because it addresses a dimension of reality which is the central concern of true conservatives, but which doesn’t even exist for contemporary conservatives: namely the organic nature of society and its institutions, and how it is damaged by equality.
