The reason for this is because the same group of people write these stories and knowing who wrote it gives you insight to the writer's biases and agendas.

This story is no exception. It was written by Ashley Fetters, who is not just an ideologue, but a mindless one. Here is a link to all her stories at the Atlantic.

I used to write "trend stories" like this. They allow you to choose your own sources. She chose a source who seems to be inventing his own version of "modern history." As far as I know, paternity always mattered, hence the long-term use of words like "bastard" and "illegitimate."

So let's remember to post bylines. To me, they often tell more than the actual story. Because this story more or less said nothing.

I disagree. Of course the bio of the author matters - no surprises there. It's less of a surprise when Buzzfeed pushes crap like this, and while not a complete shocker, Atlantic once upon a time used to be a magazine with some degree of thought behind it versus feminist group think. There's even an article in her feed which highlights the horrors of an Atlantic article which dared question the value of letting women vote and the effect it might have on their ability to be proper mothers and wives. In an attempt to discredit the notion, she only wound up reinforcing what we all here already know - those earlier Atlantic writers were totally on target.

So sure, we can all say "Fuck Hollywood/themedia/Google/Facebook....etc. they're all a bunch of liberal asshats" but that's akin to not staying sharp about the details behind your adversaries. Even the military does area studies of countries and regions long ago explored. They have analysts constantly analyzing the adversarial actors. And yes, feminist agitators are indeed your adversary, even if you don't date them directly.

Donovan Sharpe does this all the time in his video dissections of articles put into much lesser publications with a much lower level of reach. It's both fun to listen to and watch because of his delivery and presentation skills as well as educational since he often spots something I miss.

I'm not expecting to find forum members who've been living in a cave the past five or six decades, just throwing this out there since the comments often inspire and educate me too. Especially yours, DBA!
