Dubious Analogy of the Day

In the latest issue of the Wilson Quarterly, in an article entitled "A Woman's World," Sara Sklaroff argues that women are gradually taking over the important positions of authority in society and offers us a glimpse of "our feminine future." Some indication of what a matriarchal society of the future will look like, she believes, can be seen in such female-dominated societies as those of the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra, Indonesia; the Mosuo, an agrarian group of about 50,000 who have lived for almost two millennia in a remote corner of China, high in the Himalayas; and bonobos.

I suppose I could live with masturbating outdoors all day, providing our female overlords can guarantee the weather.
