“Are you tending to believe the credential because you agreed with her, and thus you feel her credential validated your own beliefs?”
I agreed with her points more often than not, because they were in accord with my life experience. It is true that feminism does a great disservice to women, for instance, and that the Feminist Manifesto is based on the Communist Manifesto. I can research that independently and have never found Lana to have issued an untruth on any of her posts. She’s either a history Professor or an incredibly knowledgeable amateur!

Be careful with that.
