Point taken. I usually use “elite feminism” or “1% feminism” for the group discussed here, “pop feminism” for the younger, positive thinkers who don’t realize that the notion that feminism is freedom of opportunity and choices is a vintage, start-of-movement and post-First Wave idea brought back in the 90’s-00’s to more success than the elite feminists had planned. (See, for example, Valenti in 2014 or The Atlantic in 2008.)

I prefer the term rogue feminist, myself.
