I subscribe to The Free Press. It's always fascinating to me how the conservatives in the comments section over there basically say Bari is a fanatical leftist sellout with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and then the mainstream liberal press describe her as a right wing activist. Our current society just can't handle people who don't comfortably fit into a neat little box! Spoiler alert, those are usually my favorite people 😉

I love your style of writing. If I had had my act together as a dumb teenager I would have been you - as Katy says - in another life!

Thank you for always just saying it - refreshing.

Team Bari/Free Press all the way. Any time there is loud protest/hate/derangement on any "side" about anyone, I become more interested in that person. And thank goodness Bari got ousted from the Times. She is shining so intelligently, it obviously scares people. Thanks for the fun recap. Looking forward to watching the videos!

Omg that was hilarious when the Pom Pom caught on fire. Thanks for sharing so much of the night with those of us who couldn’t make it! Free press is so important and we need journalists like you. I appreciate all that you do!

As one of the older, non-feminist readers, I liked the recap/post-debate videos. Having grown up in the 70-80’s, I did benefit from the sexual revolution, but looking at it on this side of it, it hurt me in many ways. Just because we can sleep with whoever, wherever, whenever doesn’t mean we should. Just my 2 cents.

I just have to add, that man in the 2nd video acted like the men feminists hate. He talked over the women, bullied his way in, and sounded like most of the narcissistic, arrogant jerks I’ve known. He did not impress me at all. Change my mind.

"The era ushered in radical change and challenged age-old norms ....."

PATRIARCHY...... Women and children first! (a man's role is to sacrifice himself for women and children)

FEMINISM ......He for she! (a man's role is to sacrifice himself for women, who now assume the role and identity of children - with an emphasis on play, hedonism, narcissism, dependency - rather than social responsibilities and reciprocal support to men)

"........to liberate women from narrowly carved societal roles."

Manual labourer, factory worker, coal miner, cannon fodder ...... oh wait, those were men's narrowly carved societal roles.

“I’m just proud I acted like a professional and refrained from asking her about ramped-up custody issues with the moon man, whose blonde haired spawn I spotted getting into the elevator with two paranoid looking nannies.” my fav sentence 😂😂 Also, Jess your hair is looking 🤌🏼

Feminism ruined the nuclear family, ruined children’s well being, and created this god awful society we’re currently living in. No one is raising children, teaching respect, self-worth, or the sanctity of life. We’re living in a hedonistic free for all, selfish land. It sucks and I see no end in sight.

And just when I thought there were no spaces in this world for smart women to get together and look cute and be funny and think freely and have a cocktail...
