1. there is one weakness with the example she showed

In the episode with the power puff girls, the girls are corrected about the straw feminists by a bunch of cops and teachers, the women NOT drawn in cartoons, to show that the straw feminist is full of crap. Not that her overall point is not right, but you do not want to use an example where at the end of the episode, they actually do the right thing and demolish the straw feminist and show real women.

2. Great points in this video

Why would shows that already have great, positive female characters feel the need to explicitly differentiate themselves from feminism at all?

3. Just recently a 21-year-old woman told me she has friends who talk like

they believe in equal rights for women but who trash the word feminist. This young woman doesn't agree with her friends on the meaning of the word feminist (she must be smarter than her friends).

RW-MSM media, as noted in the clip, has effectively soiled the meaning of feminist (as they've done with the meanings of liberal and socialist). Brainwashing works!
