I appreciate your insight into post-modern NS theory. While your premise is sound, your execution and thesis is incorrect. Yes, NS "bashes" women absolutely and completely. On the surface it would appear that NS is a bastion of anti-feminism. In rebuttal, I refer you to Episode 1, Season 12, South Park - Tonsil Trouble. In this fascinating modern look into HIV and AIDS, humor and satire are used to examine AIDS through a modern lens. In the end, we realize that AIDS has become accepted - is finally funny.
This same examination of the NS anti-feminism movement reveals a parallell. Because the bashing of women on NS is so well tolerated, and always so funny, it means that we have accepted feminism and the feminist movement. It is accepted, it is tolerated, and now jokes pertaining to it are funny. As in South Park, when something is finally funny, we as a society know that we have moved past it. In this light I put it to you: Feminism and women's rights are accepted and a non-issue within the NS community. Our humor and "bashing" are the concrete proof that we are progressive, equal, and tolerant. NS is a haven for women's rights.
