    ARE feminists. They're Third Wavers. The fact that they're not on dK or the fact that you haven't met them doesn't mean they don't exist.

    And I'd really like to know how feminism "doesn't correspond to their world" when many of them are victims of rape, DV, and/or sexual harassment.

      This.  And they're not on DK because they don't want to put up with old white men who unconsciously or consciously spew sexist nonsense.  

      I have a thick skin, and am old enough to like long-form internet, so I keep wading back in here.  That and the opportunity to educate people I do think can be educated, on average.  

    •  I'm a Third-Waver myself, so, yes (0+ / 0-)

      I'm aware they are out there.

      Stil, I wouldn't say "lots," except maybe amongst humanities grad students. And you're only the second one I've seen here on DKos since I joined in 2004. So, yes, they are out there, just not here.
