I don't understand why the feminist ideal should be acting like a total douchebag about everything.Every so often, some feminist writer will come out with an essay bemoaning the fact that, despite all that The Sisterhood claims to have done for womankind, most women don't identify themselves as feminists.
Why is this? I would suggest it's because any woman who has set foot on a college campus during the past 20 years automatically identifies "feminist" as a term synonymous with "maladjusted, overprivileged, angry, ugly Women's Studies major."
It's very similar to the reason most people have negative opinions of Christian conservatives, a category associated in the public mind with uptight, hypocritical, fearful, humorless closet cases. The Ted Haggard Syndrome, as it were.
As we have recently come to realize, Charles Johnson is the Ted Haggard of atheism. While all atheists are obnoxious at some level, at least Christopher Hitchens is the whiskey-swilling, cigarette-smoking, dirty-joking variety of obnoxious. Hitch is fun, in other words. What's the point of defying the Almighty, if all you're going to do with your godlessness is to ride bicycles and take boring photos?
