Pop Feminism: Why The Like Button Should Be Jettisoned.

“The comments on any article about feminism justify feminism.”

So, that is what your like or share button gets you. And what the comments actually show is that femenists are losing. Oh, don't get me wrong, women still run the world, but even the guys who read this sort of crap will bust out with the "make me a sandwich" line?

The article was in the Rolling Stones, and Grimes is vague. Most of this stuff she notices comes mainly from being famous. She says she doesn't notice it with her male peers, but these people are pretty insulated from one another. Besides, some of the men are actually going to be coming on to her, much like the women who chase down famous men do. The difference, of course, is that the men who are into Grimes are likely to be creepy. Sad, but hey, I don't have much control over who is in my fan club either.

How different would the world be if people were sharing what they were learning, rather than sharing an excuse not to learn.
