A wo­man’s world, but it sure won’t last

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Re: the Cul­ture Briefs item in the Oct. 29 edi­tion ti­tled “Fe­male fu­ture” (page 28), the para­graph be­gins, “Where have all the boys gone?” It ends, “Women are tak­ing over.”

“What re­ally hap­pens when women rule? His­tory of­fers few clues.” Wrong. The au­thor sim­ply chooses not to see what his­tory puts on bla­tantly con­sis­tent dis­play: the De­cline and Fall of Civ­i­liza­tion, if not an even more ba­sic ex­tinc­tion.

I don’t think a fun­da­men­tal na­ture ever asks the ques­tion, “Where have all the boys gone?” The far more fun­da­men­tal ques­tion would be to ask, “Where have all the fe­males gone?”

It is the fe­male that is go­ing largely miss­ing from the species main­te­nance pic­ture (and go­ing largely miss­ing by de­lib­er­ate choice). In go­ing miss­ing from the species main­te­nance pic­ture, it is she who takes out civ­i­liza­tion. She isn’t go­ing to be fill­ing ev­ery male’s po­si­tion very much longer. She isn’t go­ing to be dis­solv­ing ev­ery dif­fer­ence she can very much longer.

For the fe­male isn’t hold­ing up her own (most fun­da­men­tal) end of life’s bar­gain. The truth of this fact is grow­ing only too ob­vi­ous in an in­creas­ingly sav­age “nanny state” world. G. L. Brad­ford Louisville, Ken­tucky
