Women Programmers, Sex, Tai Chi and Reincarnation
the sole comment i wish to make about many "discrimination" rulings is that they have less to do with discrimination than they have to do with lawyers and their desire to dictate whatever reality they wish. if you think deeply about cultures and what they are you fairly quickly realize that much of this could be turned whichever way one desires, depending on the power equation. it is very frequently in action the direct opposite of its characterization, and the only interests it serves are suburban and banal.
