Round Up the Usual Balderdash

This is front-page news in my local rag:
It will be 50 years before the pay of women matches that of men, and another century will pass before women make up half the U.S. Congress, a report released Tuesday by an independent research organization predicted.
And it might never happen, but so what? Suppose that women, on the whole, choose not to pursue education, careers, and political power to the same degree as men. In spite of feminist cant, it is honorable, productive, and civilizing to make a home and raise children. Moreover, the tendency of women to avoid competitive occupations may arise from inherent gender differences, perhaps of hormonal origin.
