Let me tell you something you already know
Life isn't easy; in fact, life's never easy. Except when it is.
If you want something so badly you got to work for it. You got to push yourself beyond the bounds of what you thought was possible for you to do. Except when someone gives it to you.
The people up there. Like UP THERE up there. Yeah those people. Yeah they make money. They knew how to get up there, and how to make money. So they proceeded to get up there and then following that event, they began making money. Understand? Except when they were already up there.
I feel like there's a lot of things going against feminism in the digital age. The Internet harbors anonymity which encourages people to speak their mind with less filtering than they would in person. Social filtering of news feeds of social networks keeps people inside their own comfort bubbles, not interacting with those outside. This leads to a lot of polarization as people shout chamber themselves into increasingly extreme positions on issues. There are also plenty of conservative media outlets eager to take quotes/tweets/the like from extreme liberals and put them out of context to satirize them; and it works.
