Feminist Quote of the Day

The there-are-too-many-men-in-the-country theory:

"[W]hen women are repressed, you have high birth rates — and hence a destabilizing youth bulge — and the country takes on the atmosphere of a boy’s locker room or an armed camp. Some American sociologists have argued that the American West was so violent in the 19th century precisely because there were so many young men and so few women. . When the Pentagon lists women’s rights as a security issue, that’s the historic milestone we need!"
-- Nicholas Kristof,
