** Whenever Duncan contacts Jeff about the test answers, much to Jeff's exasperation he shows up in a ConspicuousTrenchcoat acting in a manner that practically screams "I am doing something very questionable!" In hindsight, since Duncan ends up screwing Jeff over with the test answers anyway, it's more than likely that this was all just ObfuscatingStupidity to lull Jeff into a false sense of superiority so that he wouldn't consider the possibility that Duncan was planning to stitch him up until it was too late.

*** If we accept the premise that there's a critique of feminism going on, it also arguably critiques the different approaches these different waves have, and how dividing these lines in the sand between feminists only ends up hurting themselves and the issues they care about. Annie's approach to the issue, while agreeable and likeable, is a bit superficial in that it doesn't necessarily address the underlying problems, and she's a bit more keen on being liked than solving the problem. This has the result that while on the surface she's getting guys to support the cause, it's only because they're trying to get into her pants rather than because they care about solving the problem, meaning that they're fair-weather friends who are unlikely to stick around when the going gets tough. Britta, meanwhile, is all about addressing and combatting the underlying issues, but her approach is overly confrontational when she doesn't need to be ("You don't have to yell at us! No one is on the other side of this issue!"), and she repeatedly hurts her own cause by antagonising and offending potential[=/=]actual allies because she's unyieldingly dogmatic about her values and self-righteously moralistic towards those who don't share them 100%. This has the result that she ultimately spends more energy attacking people who already are or might be persuaded to be on her side for not being ideologically 'pure' than attacking the actual problem. Essentially, feminism would benefit from striking more of a friendly balance between the two sides, wherein they are focussed on the actual problem and confrontational where necessary, but still welcoming and inclusive enough to welcome those with different opinions and flexible enough to pick and choose their battles carefully.

*** When talking about parodies / critiques of feminism, consider also that Britta and Annie's conflict revolves primarily around sexuality. Britta objects to what she sees as Annie using her sexuality in order to attract the support of men to their cause, thus pandering to them and undermining what she feels are the political objectives of what they're doing. Annie, meanwhile, is offended by what ''she'' views as Britta judgemental and moralistic attitude to her behaviour and the ways she tries to bully, lecture and police Annie into modifying the way she acts (particularly around men) simply because she doesn't conform to Britta's own preferences and viewpoints. This also works as a rough parody of the debates around "sex-positive" feminism: to again (over-)simplify, one side (Britta) views many forms of female sexuality and sexual expression as merely pandering to men and continuing male privilege and oppression, while the other (Annie) views them as a necessary part of female liberation and the first side as, in its way, just as oppressive, puritanical and controlling of female sexuality as [[NotSoDifferent those they initially started fighting against]].

*** Further evidence: Britta, the ardent feminist of the group, is the only one whose character has a decidedly feminine name (Lavernica).

*** This also explains why Rich never shows up in Anthropology after his initial class - He figured out that class was a giant blow-off & Duncan was giving everyone top grades. To paraphrase [[Film/TheIncredibles Syndrome]]: If everyone is special, then no-one is.

** Why is Annie the first to admit she and Shirley practice different religions? Well, Shirley is the study group member Annie relates to the most and is friendliest with at this point of the show, so she thought Shirley would at least accept their different faiths. She just didn't anticipate that the other study group members were from different religions as well.
