A real comment I received on an essay shout out to my professor for proving academics, too, can be fuckboys

No, but this is not about misogyny. In an academic paper, hasty generalizations such as the explicit or implicit use of unprovable words like “all”, “none”, “always”, and “never” are not acceptable. They weaken the argument by failing to acknowledge complexity and assigning the views of a subset (even a majority) to the whole group. Not everything is some big conspiracy of oppressing women; feminism is complex, like your paper should be.

This basically sums up third-wave feminism; finding ‘oppression’ where none exists. If anything, this right here is equality, because professors do this all the time to everyone.

OP is a fool.
