HIGHER EDUCATION BUBBLE UPDATE: Professor says she plays “chicken” with men while walking to empower women. “The idea of patriarchy chicken is as follows: by refusing to move out of the way to avoid collision with men going in the opposite direction, women are somehow empowering themselves.”
It might be more aptly renamed “presuming on chivalry.” But then, “feminists” do that a lot.
The irony is that the feminist is displaying her unshakable faith in the goodness of men here, even strangers on the street. This is very similar to Dalrock’s Law of Feminism, although instead of pleading with men to come to her rescue she is banking on men’s goodwill even as she accuses them of oppressing her.
