Re the point above about extremism in the defense of feminism* --
A thoughtful piece discussing the "Jezebel Effect". And for whatever it's worth by way of full disclosure (because, you know, I'd hate to erode my credibility in these parts): the writer is someone I know (very slightly) socially, as she's a good friend of a good friend.
*Old dude joke -- paraphrasing Barry Goldwater's famous comment. And for what it's worth -- as old as I am, Goldwater was before my time as well.
The Jezebel Effect seems to me as the logical outcome from the outrage machine as the newest generation turns it on the very ones that built it.
