First, and most importantly: Sulu comes out at last!
Second: Science Daily reports that the Netherlands is considering banning the burka on the grounds that it "could be used to conceal a terrorist." Which strikes me as completely cockamamie–since terrorists can just as easily be concealed in a pair of Dockers, or in a violin case–and and makes me yearn for that clear blue sunny day when governments decide to knock it off with the kneejerk banning of irrelevant stuff, already.
But then I read something like this, where couples in the throes of IVF in a Houston clinic are actually choosing the sex of their kids, and I want to puke a little, and kind of wish that somebody would kneejerkily ban it. I wish this because the whole idea of so-called "social sex selection" is predicated on the notion that one sex is better than another, which notion, it just so happens, is the driving force behind one of human history’s most popular perniciousnesses, the oppression of women.
It will lead to no good, I tell you whut.
