Feminism and the End of Countermyth

At the Conversation, Lisa DePasqual has noted two articles from liberal/feminist-friendly rags which kinda-sorta undermine central pillars of feminist propaganda, here and here.

I wonder if this is a case of some people feeling the general mission of propaganda is largely accomplished and it's now safe to occasionally begin speaking like honest adults. The left likes to call its lies not lies but "countermyths," myths (which are lies) aimed at displacing the already-existing myths of society. But the only justification for such a lie is to, at some point, begin speaking the truth.

Shouldn't we start doing that at some point?


I Did Not Lie When I Promised You That Certain Things Would Not Happen In Your Mouth

It was a "countermyth."
