Protocols of the Elders of Patriarchy

Protocols of the Elders of Patriarchy: A reader writes:

"I notice that women make up about half of all law and med students. Does this mean that the patriarchy is keeping the glamour jobs like mechanical engineer for itself, and relegating the girls to low pay, low prestige jobs like lawyer and doctor?"

Exactly. We of the Council of the Elders of Patriarchy have determined that while we can afford to power share with women at minor outposts of power such as the Harvard Law School, Harvard Medical School, and Harvard Business School, so long as we hang on to the Harvard Math department, WE SHALL RULE THE WORLD! HA HA HA HA!

A reader adds:

"And prison! Damned if we'll let them get any more of a foothold into our near-monopoly on incarceration. We'll just have to discriminate twice as much if that's what it takes to keep them out of jail."
