First of all, I consider myself a feminist and far more coherent and consistent than most.

Second, I think it's important to accord blame to the parties deserving of it. If you don't think this was a direct consequence of first wave feminism, then you're absolutely kidding yourself. There were plenty of girls trying out for boys' high school programs to make a political point.

If one advocates a political position or a policy change that actually effects change, one should also be prepared to own up to its consequences.
Yes, I agree with owning up to its unintended consequences.

I see these cultural changes and movements as processes that develop over time. Hopefully corrections continue to be made to come up with a better product.
