"I've come a long way. Baby."

LIZ JONES: Hooray for sexual liberation! Now I can die lonely and poor: I am a feminist,
I really am (I’ve never let a man pay for anything), but feel the current generation of women in their 60s, the first to abandon the way of life of their mothers, which meant they pursued careers, married and had children late, had affairs then got divorced, all in the name of liberation, are now imprisoned in debt, alcohol abuse and loneliness, wishing they could die, and do it soon.

I just don't know whether to cry or laugh; the tears probably will by from laughing so hard...

Don't worry, baby, there will always be a pal that will punch you in the face. It gets the creative juices flowing.

A large part of social acceptance in general is the willingness to compromise your desires with reducing aggressiveness, i.e. 'don't act like an a**hole'. If you act like an a**hole enough, the word gets around about your a**holery, and people treat you like the a**hole you are.
So don't. At least, not on the first date.

With the exception of hard-core young "feminists," who usually get mugged by reality repeatedly until they modify their ways, most modern young women do not find sexist, patriarchal pigs hiding under their beds. If they did, they'd either call the cops, or ask them if they wanted to fuck.
