The Advanced Genius Theory - Jason Hartley

March 2, 2014

Jason Hartley talks about his book, "The Advanced Genius Theory: Are They Out of Their Minds or Ahead of Their Time?"



How nice for the interviewee to be able to admit that he's not studied the incidence of women artists because "he's a man and he leans that way." He sends some afterthoughts re: Madonna and Patti Smith, but they would never have formed the meat of his argument because it's easy enough to ignore them and not pay any sort of price for it. Can anyone imagine a woman asking the same questions of artists and geniuses and completely ignoring men in her main thesis, because she "doesn't lean that way"? This is what privilege looks like.
