2. It looks feminist to take part in hook-up culture, but the freedom to have sex without emotional entanglements is not the same things as having sexual choice. If it were real choice, women would be able to say no without being seen as prudes, they would be able to get passed out drunk (not that I encourage it) and not get taken advantage of, they would not have to get drunk to excuse hooking up, and they would be able to have real conversations about what they want emotional, sexual and otherwise without it feeling weird.
3. It looks feminist to be able to swear, smoke cigars, and take on the trappings of hyper masculinity, but all this really does is send the message that hyper masculinity is the ideal human standard. The ability to perform and compete alongside men should not be confused with the highest level of human success. (Katness Everdeen is not a feminist symbol; she is a symbol that women can still only be seen as heroic if they act like men.)
4. It looks a like a feminist victory that women make up over half of all college students, but is anyone wondering why--now that that has happened--talking heads are wondering how necessary college really is?
The personal is still political.
OK. So just thought I'd go a little old-school political today as I am still annoyed by the horrible van that recently parked in our town and advertised topless maids.
