A feminist story?

"Learning How Boys Are Different From Girls - At Thirty" is my most recent major story. By now it's nearly 2 months since I posted it.

I can imagine a question for the course Erotic Fiction Appreciation: "Is this a feminist story? Discuss."

I never thought about it when writing it. The protagonist is a woman, she makes things happen, and men never dominate. On the other hand, I speak of some human sexuality patterns reinventing themselves.

I was in a way proud that my most recent "Drones - Sexual Predator Drones" got such remarkably low scores. I'm kind of glad people found it unappealing, actually. So did I. But I was able to write the story I wanted to write and post it.

I'm not writing as much as I used to, even on ASSTR, where the full set including underage stories appears (http://www.asstr.org/files/Authors/Sterling/). When you've written 100 stories, who needs another one? The bar is higher in terms of originality.
