    rights for women (and all people) and I understand most of the basic problems that have been generated from partriachy, exploitation and abuse of power, etc. among men.
    I did live through the 80's and found some of the ball-busting of radical feminism to be tiresome.
    Now we're living in a different age, I think at the end of a "backlash" against feminism, in which objectification of women, abuse of women and and nostalgia for patriarchy have gone overboard.
    Hopefully we're about to step out of that phase. I expect this will be a "women's tsunami" electorally, and I think that will lead to a lot of progressive change.
    Ultimately feminism leads to the liberation of men as well as women.

    You can't make this stuff up.
