January 21, 2007:
Stereotypes. This is what 20-somethings are like, this is what 30-somethings are like, this is what 40-somethings are like, this is what men are like, this is what women are like.
Contradictory fruit of feminist battles of earlier generations, half-won, half-lost, still in progress. On the one hand, the freedom not only to have sex but to exercise reproductive control. On the other hand, the old ocean of moronic, culturally-dominant, pre-feminist caricatures.
The independence of ideology from material circumstances.
