That’s a real stretch. Yes, I’m sure you can find a progressive or ten out there that actually do believe this. But equal before the law, equal opportunity, equal work for equal pay, etc. is what progressives mean.
I thin k it can be stated that many debate for the sole purpose of beating others up, period.

It’s not a stretch. It’s the truth. There is already equality before the law, equal opportunity or better in protected fields, and equal pay for equal work. Yet men and women still have different behaviors, make different choices, and have different priorities. Progressives are saying these differences must be a result of socialization and oppression and cannot be the result of biology and evolutionary pressures. They want selective equity for certain people, which is very unequal.
