Here is the thing, okay? Coming into a feminist conversation with, “Have you considered that sometimes women acquire free drinks at bars?” is like walking into graduate school during Philosophy finals and saying, “Have you considered that the color blue that I see may not be the color blue that you see?”
The quote above succintly describes the immediate frustration radicals of all stripes get when someone makes elementary observations and demands mad props, or even worse, makes elementary criticism which has been countered ad nauseum, and demands immediate and well sourced replies (eg “But what about human nature?”).
This is not the only good part of course, or even possibly the best of the whole post. So read the whole damn thing. Do eeet!
