Challenge for feminism to find an honourable role for men

Yeah, this opinion piece annoys me, I think a lot of that is the language, but underneath it makes me uncomfortable. I don't think the world I live in, is the world the author of this article lives in.

It's the Great Man's birthday bash and we mill, harbourside, in the summer evening. A thin, acidic woman, herself a Great Man's spouse, gestures towards their emeritus congregation.

"They're finished," she declares without pity. "The lot of them, those old blokes, they're over. It's our turn now."

By "our" she didn't mean the (slightly) younger generation of which she was also a member. She meant the Monstrous Regiment.


women seem happy with their newly expanded rolesCollapse )
