This is just One Of Those Random Observations things:
I have a dog. I walk it a lot. (as you do) sometimes children come forward and want to say hi/pet the dog. (since he's a good dog I usually let them) what I've noticed recently though is that the vast, vast majority of kids who do that are girls. Like, probably more than 90%.
It feels really weird, since I haven't really associated being fond of animals as being a gendered thing.
I think it is "feminist" in that it clearly tries to discuss gender-issues in a fantasy context. I don't think it *succeeds*, mind, but he's clearly trying. Now, another factor is that it is clearly written by a man who got his grounding in feminism in the 60's and 70's. He's updated some, but the basics is a fairly old style of ideas that were swishing around at the time, and a lot of which has since become outdated or superceded.
Add to this the fact that, y'know, he's a man, he's not neccessarily the greatest of writers, and a lot of unexamined prejudices and you end up with the weird soup that WOT is. I'd still classify it as a femnist work though: Just a bad one. ("feminist" is not a seal of quality, or even of sanity)
