Feminism = women can be men so that men don't have to be

Point well made: "empowering women" has often been talk deployed by the men in power in order to abdicate their own responsibilities:

Case in point: Andrew Brown in the Guardian rails against "patriarchy"; what he apparently means is that he is in rebellion against the fact that God made him a man, with a man's roles and responsibilities.

True feminism would be about encouraging and aiding women to be women, rather than persuading them to be men.
