    Ack! I don’t like that “cartoon about epistemic injustice.” So, the lady tries to talk about “general” stuff in a “general” forum dominated by men, and they immediately start harassing her. But, when she goes to the “made for women” internets, she is disgusted by all of the “feminism” (among other things)?!

    Is the cartoon lady meant to be Phylis Schlafly- a freeloader who wants to take advantage of feminism’s wins for women while simultaneously denigrating the movement?

      I read it not so much that she’s disgusted by the women’s stuff (vaginas, as well as feminism) but that the segregation is so striking. That is, there’s the Internet, with default-maleness, and there’s the, um, Pinkernet I guess, with women’s issues ranging from serious political thought through to celebrity gossip, all trivialised and handily labelled so that the men know not to bother.
