Hollywood (ie Buffy): The empowered woman; always good; always stronger than and defeating evil (ie men).

Well, Hollywood is all about enforcing stereotypes both male and female, but that's simply silly entertainment drek, not reality.
I never understood how people can confuse the two.

Nonetheless, I don't believe that TV/movie stories are solely anti-male, in fact, I think the opposite may be true.
I'm no movie buff so maybe I should let someone else speak to this, however, it seems to me that the Hollywood portrayal of the average or ideal woman is wildy inaccurate.
I don't know many women that are pencil thin, have 38D busts with lips like Mick Jagger and a botox frozen expression of perpetual surprise...but that's just me and I don't get out much.

Womens movement: Teaching women they are better off without men; that all men are evil; that women are superior to men; that all men are the same, and all they want is sex.

I've read and heard the rhetoric; preached on all college campuses, and enforced by those in Hollywood. Here's the result.

I disagree. This result you refer to is a misguided and likely very troubled individual. I don't think she is representative of the entire women's movement or even a portion of it. Did the article state anywhere that women's movement is making her the poster girl of their cause? I didn't read the whole article so I honestly don't know...I read enough to identify a troubled person and stopped reading further. If the womens movement is adopting Terrifca as a spokesperson for their cause, well...then you might be on to something.

Perhaps you are confusing a very small radical minority of the women's movement with the entire thing. It is unrealistic and misinformed actually to think that a small portion of any group represents the whole. Like any movement the common and greater goal is more important than the individual opinions of the members. I think you will find that this is true in politics, civic and private associations as well as action groups.

Perhaps, just perhaps you are using an overly very broad brush on this issue.
