I hear a lot of people throwing around labels for Buk like â€œNaziâ€ and â€œMisogynistâ€. The Nazi thing seems to have come up most recently over a real estate deal in California. It seems to me that one of the parties involved was trying to vilify him in order to sway public opinion. According to an article that I read he was said to have looked around a cafÃ© or coffee shop that was occupied by several Jews at the time and say â€œTurn on the gasâ€. This doesnâ€™t seem entirely out of character for Buk seeing as he had a somewhat dark and twisted sense of style and humor, but still I wholeheartedly believe it to have been a joke. In response to the misogyny label he always said that people who said he hated women never knew the ones he was with. This misogyny thing seems to be growing legs. Iâ€™m not really sure how you define it. Is misogyny the hatred of women per se, or is it the act of womanizing, which we all know Buk engaged in with great vigor, or is it simply finding the views of the feminist movement to be a bit overstated and fanciful? As in the belief that a woman can do anything a man can do i.e. Police Officer, Firefighter or Soldier? I wonder how Bukowski would come down on all this babbling going on? Possibly he would side with the likes of the much-maligned graphic novelists Dave Sim. But thatâ€™s a whole other can of worms.
