Here's the thing - having to suck up to anyone stinks - but that's a fact of life for just about everyone unless you win the lottery.

The Feminine Mystic was about how boring it was to be a housewife - and basically suck up to your husband and that wasn't fulfilling - so women wanted to have the same career opportunities as men.

And then we get into the workforce - and discover you have to suck up to your boss - the men weren't fulfilled either.

And even if you're born into a wealthy family, you have to suck up to some parent to get any money out of them.
