15. Mary Wollstonecraft is my favorite feminist

I did a paper on her in college. She was a most amazing woman, way ahead of her time.

Yes, this young man needs to first understand that women come from a history of oppression. He needs to understand that not too long ago in America women could NOT even open a bank account, get a job, buy property without their husband's signature. He seems to understand that women get paid less but he doesn't understand that women are ridiculed and ignored routinely in the workforce, merely because they are women.

He doesn't understand that when he puts on a falsetto voice to mock women he is taking away our speech. He is mocking us for not being like men. He is making it humiliating merely for us to speak out loud in our higher pitched feminine voices. He is missing all the everyday degradations a woman must put up with. He is blind to the nuances of discrimination and only sees one thing to be of concern. This young man does Not know of what he speaks.
