“This femininity scorned by Nietzsche is the “eternal Feminine,” the phantasmatic support of the actual subordination of women; ..Nietzsche’s scorn for Wagner’s “feminization”..is thus much closer to feminism than the Wagnerian elevation of woman as man’s redeemer.” – “Nietzsche perceives in Wagner the lack of an..assertive..male attitude—instead of the..rhythmic..edifice, his music indulges in the “feminized”..ocean of feeling.” – Slavioj Zizek
