Editor's Note: This post is satire.

Is there anything worse than a talented, intelligent woman accomplishing great things while doing feminism the wrong way? No. No, there is not. When I look at female actors and writers and musicians who have made a name for themselves, I don't think about what an inspiration they are in a society where the glass ceiling still exists, or where politicians attempt to hijack our vaginas on the regular, or where magazine culture cultivates an impossible standard of beauty, or where the advertising industry wants us to hate ourselves. I don't even think about how much I enjoy their music and books and TV shows. Instead, what I like to do is climb into my ideological echo chamber — or hop onto the internet — and shout until I'm convinced the ghost of Simone de Beauvoir has been placated. »
