Mid-Week Reads: Gender Issues

Go read Nora Ephron's commencement speech at Wellesley.

The concept of Mary Sue is sexist.

You need to read this.
"Don’t marry or move in or reproduce with men unless they pull their own weight. Seriously. That might mean you end up alone. That might be a better option."
"Men are not useless, nor are they idiots or chimps. They are just as capable of being nurturing and loving and caring and aware as women are, so let’s also give them the chance to demonstrate that. And just don’t accept the ones who pretend to be chimps in order to abdicate responsibility."
