We women who grew up reading Heinlein are different. We know that we are different, but know we are as capable as men of creating a future worth living in, and more important than men because only we can give birth to the future.
The women of feminist-offense can doubtlessly find something to complain about in everything Robert A. Heinlein – a man who loved women – wrote and said. And I hope they enjoy it. But only we Heinlein women are capable of giving birth to children who will take over the stars.
