Your last comment is exactly what I wanted to point out. It’s easy to criticise women who exhibit these traits but the major point is that society does not champion and reward women’s personality disorders like the do men’s.

Someone asked me recently whether self-proclaimed female anti-feminists anger me more than men. I was surprised by the question, but in the end, I realised that I am far more likely to persevere speaking to women who attack the feminist movement than men. Though they may choose not to align with the f-word, they are still disadvantaged by the issues it discusses and seeks to address.
