people put so much energy into perpetuating it and defending it. Still, understanding the world we live in can be an important first step in overcoming our limitations within that world. Not easy, not fun, but important. I've never been convinced that technology will just whisk all of that away, otherwise it would have happened by now.

It seems to me that one reason it remains is because half of the equation has blinders on. Why is male chauvinism boring, but misandry entertaining?
