"Let's please be serious grown-ups: real feminists don't depend on men. Real feminists earn a living, have money and means of their own.

If the movement had been serious about being serious then the idea could not have caught on that equal is how you feel."

Indeed. Equality, when it exists, is tangible.

Because they feel equal they no longer feel the need to fight for equality?

Translation: "Women! Live like I do, OR ELSE! Believe what I believe, OR ELSE! Sisterhood requires that YOU make your life choices in compliance with what 'we' deem politically appropriate!"

What arrogance to insist that 40 years of social revolution (and feminism is arguably the most revolutionary movement ever) is sufficient to cleanly overturn countless millenia of societal development. What arrogance to reject the heterodox nature of reality? What arrogance to sit in the ivory tower of Manhattan and call the complexity of human choice a 'War on Women'?

Disgusting coastal elitism. I hope she steps on a Lego.

"... reduce to zero the cost imposed on people who are discriminating for irrelevant reasons."
