Middle Ground is an Illusion
There is a sizeable centrist party, a tribe of fence-sitters who harbor the illusion of middle ground between pro-feminist and anti-feminist. These folk are nearly always stuffed with clichés, marked by the superficiality of their political understanding, and saturated by the conventions of feminist discourse. They fail to comprehend that their middle ground is a transitory condition and that the growth of polarization will finally shrink that ground to nothing. In the end they will be squeezed off their fence and forced to take a stand -- either to the side of female supremacism, or to the side opposing it.
