Jennifer Simpkins of The Tab London has written a savvy, brave piece about the dark underbelly of fourth-wave feminism – or, really, any loud group of opinionated people with internet access. In her estimate, feminists can counterintuitively tend to victimize other women by being excessively quick to admonish or dismiss; take the author's description of the time she tentatively endorsed Robin Thicke's “Blurred Lines” on social media. Worth a look-read, especially for those of us who can be a bit trigger-happy with the use of the word "patriarchy" in a 140-character-count context.
