Great article and quote on feminism:

Feminism never has, and never should be, a homogeneous movement. What unites us is very simple: a belief that gender shouldn’t limit people’s life chances, and yet does, constantly, far more than merely through the laws of nature. This is the true tyranny of low expectations: just as much for the man who is told it’s unnatural to put fatherhood first, as it is for the women who’s subtly yet repeatedly told at school that physics is for boys. To be allies, we need to agree on the basic problems, but we don’t need to agree on the solutions. If anything, we need to gloriously, joyously disagree, where disagreement is debate and challenge to received wisdom and tired campaign slogans.

Works!
The Oracle JDK downloads for Windows are only offered as EXE files, or install executables. Unfortunately, for some of us, we don't want to install because we want to develop with more than one version and/or we do not have the rights on our computer to install software. 1. Install 7zip.
