For some reason, today everybody is sending me links about instances of misogyny in Canada. Look at this poster that somebody plastered over the faces of female candidates for student government:
This wasn't all. The following mass email was next sent in the name of the university's president:
When a bad idea comes to this Earth it always hides behind The Shield of Vulnerability. This way it is immune from being attacked in the open. Radioactive Technology was hiding behind the vulnerable looking mask of Marie Curie and this is why no one caught it in advance. They figured that if a female was pushing it then it was harmless. They figured wrong. The truth is that overeducated women are truly dangerous. If they don't know right from wrong they will nuke the whole Planet and call it the latest fashion from Holt Renfrew. This is the truth. The world is in trouble today because the higher moral intelligence of men is not in charge anymore. How long will you let this continue? The choice is in your hands. I didn't leave posters on your campus because I am a fool. I left them because I am your father who is concerned about where your education is ultimately going. You are being taught the virtues of gender equality when gender equality is nowhere in the Orginial Plan of Creation. Queen Elizabeth is leading you astray and charging you big money for this evil favour. When you graduate from here you will have a degree but no real intelligence. This is the truth.
Before you dismiss this as an innocent student prank, let me remind you of the Montreal massacre where 14 women were killed by a criminal who was unhappy with the fact that many women were attending an engineering program.
Thank you, dear colleague, for sending me the link!
