No comparison

I understand that the term “stark resemblance” is one of those clichés that people toss about without thinking about the precise meaning. But a “stark” resemblance is one that is “plain,” “obvious” and “clear.” Whatever one may think about feminism and its progress, the way we “live now” bears virtually no resemblance to Atwood’s dystopia. If it does, someone better break out the rifles.
