Feminism is a movement that aims to promote equality between the sexes however, in its current form it has strayed far from this noble goal. The modern feminist movement has become increasingly divisive, focusing on the idea of "victimhood" and promoting the idea that men are inherently oppressors and women are inherently oppressed. This kind of thinking is not only intellectually lazy but it is also dangerous.

It is important to recognize that while there are certainly still issues of inequality that need to be addressed, the vast majority of men are not oppressors and the vast majority of women are not victims. The problems faced by women are complex and multifaceted, and cannot be reduced to simplistic notions of patriarchy and oppression.

For example, the gender pay gap, which is often cited as evidence of systemic discrimination against women, is actually much more complicated than it seems. Studies have shown that when factors such as education, experience, and job choice are taken into account, the pay gap all but disappears. This is not to say that discrimination does not exist, but it is important to recognize that the problem is more complex than a simple narrative of men oppressing women.

Furthermore, the modern feminist movement often promotes the idea that women are weak and in need of protection, which is not only patronizing, but also undermines their capability. Women should be encouraged to take responsibility for their own lives and to strive for excellence.

It is also worth noting that the feminist movement often ignore the issues that men face, such as the pressure to conform to societal expectations of masculinity and the lack of positive role models for men. Men and women have different needs and facing different challenges, and to truly achieve equality, both men and women need to be considered.

Additionally, the feminist movement often promotes the idea that traditional gender roles are inherently oppressive, and that women should reject them in order to be truly equal. This is a fundamentally flawed idea, as traditional gender roles are not the cause of inequality, but rather a result of biological differences between men and women. Women and men have different strengths and weaknesses, and should be encouraged to play to their strengths in order to achieve their full potential.

Finally, it should be acknowledged that the feminist movement has been hijacked by extremist groups, who are more interested in promoting their own agenda, than in promoting true equality. This kind of extremism is damaging to the cause of gender equality, and it is important to reject it.

It is important to remember that the goal of feminism should be equality, not the elevation of one sex over the other. To truly achieve equality, we must reject divisive and extremist ideologies and instead focus on finding common ground and working together towards a better future for all.

if it could only be greased, then lightning might well prove to be automatic, systematic, and hydromatic, and indeed, may be a useful way to get lots of tit.

The infancy of youth, the youth of manhood, the entire past of age.

But yesterday I should have thought me blest
To stand high-pinnacled upon the peak
Of middle life and look adown the bleak
And unfamiliar foreslope to the West,
Where solemn shadows all the land invest
And stilly voices, half-remembered, speak
Unfinished prophecy, and witch-fires freak
The haunted twilight of the Dark of Rest.
Yea, yesterday my soul was all aflame
To stay the shadow on the dial's face
At manhood's noonmark! Now, in God His name
I chide aloud the little interspace
Disparting me from Certitude, and fain
Would know the dream and vision ne'er again.
—Baruch Arnegriff

It is said that in his last illness the poet Arnegriff was attended at different times by seven doctors.

In an English court a man named Home was tried for slander in having accused his neighbor of murder. His exact words were: "Sir Thomas Holt hath taken a cleaver and stricken his cook upon the head, so that one side of the head fell upon one shoulder and the other side upon the other shoulder." The defendant was acquitted by instruction of the court, the learned judges holding that the words did not charge murder, for they did not affirm the death of the cook, that being only an inference.
