In a combox, it is not always clear who you are replying to.

If you are referring to me, your fears are greatly exaggerated. I am, this evening, with someone who thinks the sexes are and should be complementary.

Who has no aspiration to be the same sex as me (I will ask this question directly, so that your insinuations will be the source of mucho comedy).

Thank you, I predict you will bring me closer to full communion with one of God's creatures.

Women will never become the dominant anything in any field other than in prostitution because they have different priorities. Take the most heavily socialized countries. At most 66% of women actually work outside the home. But it would be accurate to say that men are more passive today than at anytime in the history of the world. Part of this is because government has aggressively waged war on WASP men via affirmative action. As women earn more degrees, they devalue those degrees and make them less marketable--just as they tend to devalue anything of any value--like motherhood and marriage.

Certain feminists, like children discovering that certain words shock their mommies, like to talk dirty. Or at least naughty. Naomi Wolf climbs on this bandwagon once more with her eighth book, "Vagina: A New Biography." She joins aging shock jock ("jockette"?) Eve Ensler in shouting the word in a marketplace crowded with female monologues.

Wolfe, who helped Al Gore with his "earth tones" to make him more attractive to women in his presidential quest in 2000, imagines that she has grown up now and seeks to prove it by "liberating" a certain word in the female anatomy.
