I find your topic oddly-phrased, Andrew, and can't really figure out how to answer. I have similar feelings toward feminism as toward being a LGBTQ ally: I'll proudly stand for it, but it sucks that it is still relevant.

I love how you manage in one swift sentence to dismiss any experience of discrimination women may have experienced in America, and
blame them for it at the same time.
One double standard that I find particularly interesting is that success and likeability are positively correlated in men, and negatively correlated in women. In other words, successful, powerful, accomplished men are perceived as role models. Successful, etc, women are perceived as domineering b*tches. Sure, many women could
become CEOs, but the system we live in makes them not want to. We are not facing the same choice.
