Not Free Agent

This is what feminism has been moving towards, though, in the last decade or so — the idea that women do not have agency and must be treated like recalcitrant adolescents. Note that this treatment is all by feminists, not non-feminists.

The “protection from harm” canard is of late trotted out at every opportunity to justify a neo-Victorian assertion of the complete fragility of women. It’s really demeaning and insulting. At least, I would be insulted and feel demeaned and devalued were I a woman.
