    Goodness knows, dear David, that you are an expert on things feminist;
    especially from your male privileged perspective. And yes, I am being
    sarcastic. 60 years of exposure to academia will not educate you nearly as
    much as 24 hours in a male dominated world as a 2nd class citizen. I am
    trying to say, politely, that you don't know squat about the benefits of the
    feminist movement. And I doubt that you are open-minded about it. An open
    mind is something I have yet to see you demonstrate.
