AMY ALKON: About The Bora Controversy: If There’s Anything That Makes Women Unequal To Men, It’s The Need To Be Treated Like Fragile Pieces Of China. “Treating women equally means expecting them to buck up and act like adults and speak their piece when they want something to stop. And again, what went on does not rise to the legal definition of sexual harassment, but now, some women have elevated any talk of sex, jokes about sex, or compliments about a woman’s new boots to sexual harassment. . . . It is a violation of Bora’s privacy that she blogged their private lunch conversation simply over being offended by a conversation that veered off into sex, and why? Because she was too fragile a lily to speak up and say ‘Let’s change the subject.’”
21st Century feminism is the argument that a women who drinks one beer is morally and intellectually inferior to a man who drinks twelve, and that a woman with professional accomplishments can be reduced to jelly by a single glance from a man.
