Some younger women seem to run from the Feminist label. How can you inspire them to be passionate about Women's Rights?
If younger women have a problem [with the label], it's only that they don't know yet that there's a problem. The kind of radicalization that happened to my generation when we tried to get a job happens to them 10 or 15 years into the job, when they fail to get promoted. Women tend to be conservative in youth and get more radical as they get older because they lose power with age. So if a young woman is not a feminist, I say just wait.
I'd point out the word "tend" up there, but since the people who violently (in some cases, literally, violently) disagree with anything she says are so effective at that whole frothing-at-the-mouth demonization of enemies thing, there's not much point. Any adults care to discuss that quote, or anything else from the brief QA session, feel free.
And if any children want to toss out something pointless, the rest of you may safely ignore it, as I've adopted the "I don't feel like paying to host your stupid shit" approach towards comments these days. You might have noticed some vanish recently. Or, if I'm doing this quickly enough, not.
This is hardly censorship; there's lots of places where stupid shit is not only accepted, but actively encouraged. I'm showing a great deal of restraint in not linking those places, in fact.
Actually, fuckit, Glenn Reynolds (who, I point out, does not allow comments) sez:
Wow. I wonder if Chuck D. knows about this.
Ignore the looney. This is another manifestation of that "The Left are the real racists" meme that white conservatives seem so desperate to push. I'd suggest it might go over a wee bit better if they could persuade some people of color of this first, but as we're all brainwashed zombie servants of the Democratic Party, they're not even able to convince us of how racist, um, we are.
(They don't count us as part of the Left, you see. Like how "Americans" are tired of having the Gay Agenda shoved down their throats, or Bush would'a won in a landslide if you ignore the Negro vote. They're pathetically transparent in their bigotry, which makes the accusations all the more amusing)
