If this were the case then how do you explain the gender pay gap and the glass ceiling? If women are achieving better grades, why are they/we being paid less in every industry (a phenomenon that flies in the face of perceived meritocracy and can be viewed statistically) https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peopleinwork/earningsandworkinghours/bulletins/genderpaygapintheuk/2021?

You're pitting women and men against each other and I've made no such attempt to do so. Feminism is not about hating men or trying to flip the scales so that men become inferior to women but about asserting the ways in which societal expectation limits women (and doesn't allow men to behave in ways that are deemed "emasculating" as well).

Your visceral disdain prevents you from being able to read with an open mind and see what I (and many writers who engage with feminism) are trying to say about the state of the world.
