I was with you up until the Ayn Rand part. I’m an ex- (very ex-) aficionado of Rand, so I’ve read a lot by her and about her. She had serious internalized misogyny; as progressive as she appeared to be for her time, she still asserted that a woman’s role is to look up to man as a hero. She also had an affair with her friend’s husband which was not the consensual polyamorous arrangement that her followers have made it out to be. (I’m queer and polyamorous myself, for the record.)
