    I liked the NY Times piece – it makes some good points. But then she had to go an end it with “fathers can be mothers, too.”

    Yet another example of “gender everything”. It never, ever occurred to me to gender handshakes – and I’ve shaken a lot of hands, with people from all over the globe.

    Makes me wonder what colour the sky is on his planet.
