But Robert, Why are you equating Feminism with "misandry" on TV?

And are we to take it now that a "basic marxian analysis" of feminism
has now been offered up, by you?  If so, I need an expanded
explanation in order to be convinced, or even to understand what you
are talking about.

"Forced to search for a niche" by what? or whom?

How did anatomical devaluation result in "sexual revolution"?  How
does that link work?

Are you saying that these things somehow generated modern feminism?
Does that also explain feminist thought, activism, writing and debate
in previous centuries?

How is "demand" for gestation and childcare determined?  Is that
aggregate demand?

I don't get it.

... but, why is it Feminism, which has proved immensely more damaging
to the cause, has been exempted from even the most basic marxian
analysis:
     Demographically the Boomer generation constitutes a crisis in
over-production; which, for the female moiety signified a
catastrophic curtailment in demand for her traditional occupation,
the labor of gestation and nurturing.  Forced to search a niche in
the only other available, wage labor, sphere....

     Further,  this precipitous devaluation of the capital of human
reporduction, overies, uterus, testicles, caused them to be now
thrown on the market at huge  discount, thence to become broadly
available for popular entertainment consumables....The Sexual
Revolution....
[snip]
     This was provoked proximately by last Sunday's Masterpiece
Theater, "Body & Soul" which purveyed misandry with as much assurance
as it were treating of any generally acknowledged degenerate group.
