For some, this will work. But what about those men who like the sexually liberated world but bridle against the constraints of the new egalitarian moralism?

What if they like their freedom but have no use for equality?

The rise of just such a misogynistic, or at least anti-feminist, outlook probably played a real and significant role in driving support for Donald Trump in his contest with Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. (Among his alt-right supporters, this is undeniably the case.) The question is whether this is the last gasp of a dying resistance to feminism — or just the beginning of a rear-guard act of defiance against any norm (old or new) that would stand in the way of the satisfaction of male sexual desire?
