Animal Husband(ry)

How many years ago did feminism, as a movement, really come into full bloom? Regardless, it's refreshing to know that it's still considered good practice to treat men like animals (quite literally) in organs as esteemed as the New York Times:
I was using what trainers call "approximations," rewarding the small steps toward learning a whole new behavior.
