Upside Down and Backwards

“Because one of the male strengths is simple-mindedness, men tend to evaluate all things according to the sort of criterion (fixed in their minds sometime in junior high) best illustrated by arm-wrestling contests or a footrace. Life is simple — stronger and faster is better. And because life is also a contest, everyone is measured by whether or not he or she is ‘winning’ it. Unfortunately, more than a few foolish women have been sucked into this mindset. And ironically, we call this attempt by some women to be more like men ‘feminism,’ which is more than a little bit like calling an attempt by cats to be like dogs felinism” (Federal Husband, p. 33).
