Pretty sure this is just insuilting the actress.
->Its so odd to see Tegan not approach somebody with her usual bad attitude and filthy mouth but I guess even Janet Fielding couldn’t bring herself to throw her weight around in the presence of a living legend like [[SpellMyNameWithAThe The]] Creator/NicholasCourtney. She saves all of her bile for Mawdryn and in some hastily scripted scenes comes across as a right old cow ...Rather wonderfully the one person she cannot brow beat is the Brigadier and he casually (almost perversely) [[StayInTheKitchen throws as much sexism her way as possible]]. Although Tegan ([[WagTheDirector or probably Janet Fielding]]) has to have the last word and quietly mutters ‘[[BigStupidDooDooHead chauvinist]]’ when he is out of sight. It makes me wonder if that for all her objections to the contrary if Tegan is the sort of self punishing individual that would subconsciously seek out a chauvinist to marry. -->--'''[[http://docohobigfinish.blogspot.com/2011/09/season-twenty.html Joe Ford]]''' on ''Series/DoctorWho'', [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS20E3MawdrynUndead}} "Mawdryn Undead"]]

Not about the topic
->As far as feminism has come in recent decades, there are still any number of pre-conceptions that exist and are casually perpetuated. Women in positions of authority are particularly likely to be stereotyped. In fact, observers are likely to use the behaviour of women in authority to reinforce and validate their own sexist beliefs.\\\ Indeed, no matter how a woman in authority acts, there’s likely to be a stereotype to account for it. Concerned about those under her? She’s a '[[MotherBear mother]].' Aggressive? She’s a '[[DoesNotLikeMen ball-buster]].' Intuitive? '[[HystericalWoman Overly emotional.]]' Logical? '{{Ice queen}}.' It is very easy to fall into the trap of playing into sexist stereotypes because there are so damn many of them. One could easily justify [[DependingOnTheWriter the various zig-zags]] taken by the ''Voyager'' writing staff in characterising as attempts to avoid various prat falls. However, swerving to avoid one stereotype means you wind up hitting another. -->--'''Darren Mooney''' [[http://them0vieblog.com/2014/10/06/star-trek-voyager-prime-factors-review/ on]] ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''

->...Moreover, in the not-so-distant past, the belief that women routinely make up rape charges often led to appalling treatment of victims.

->...a certain kind of man is now freaking out over the loss of his greatness: Esquire is e-publishing “men’s fiction”; Simon Fraser University wants to build a “men’s centre,” requiring perhaps refuge from the plague of 51-per-cent female enrolment; “misandry” is a word you hear people say and mean.\\\ Really, all that’s happening is that feminism has achieved some of its purposes and pluralism has taken root.

Therefore, regardless of how they identify themselves, [[NoTrueScotsman they are not true feminists]]. It’s as simple as that – the banner of feminism does not fly with an impaled male organ at its side, it is a banner of equality, a banner that proposes the end to patriarchy – not the rise of a matriarchy. -->-- ''[[https://thelonelylacuna.wordpress.com/2014/07/04/leda-argument-against-the-female-anti-feminists/ Leda: Argument against the Female Anti-Feminists]]''
