A Feminist Tries Out Being A Man

What happens when a feminist tries out being a man? She learns a lot!  Norah Vincent  went undercover as a man to expose just how bad male chauvinism is. After joining a men's bowling team she found out to her surprise that the guys on the team were just a great bunch of dudes. Not only that, but she couldn't wait to get back to being a woman as being a man wasn't quite the privileged life she expected. 

Now the point isn't that female privilege exists and male privilege doesn't, it is that both do and both are wrong. Women should make as much as men for equal work, be equally represented on boards of directors, in executive level position, and in the political arena. Men should not have to do virtually all the dying and being injured in wars and dangerous positions nor should they be expected to be the breadwinner for the family. 

Unfortunately many people cannot even have a rational conversation on the matter as they simply gravitate to the extremes on either side. 

Kudos to Ms. Vincent for being intelligent enough to change her position.
