I read the news today – oh, boy!

No, this is not about the Beatles. I wish.


I open the newspaper and have the displeasure of reading this gem (freely translated from the original in Portuguese): “Women today are the great tyrants. They gained power and use it in tyrannical ways. The result: they are arrogant, they think they are alone because they are too powerful.


Guess who signed it? Old man Ratzinger? Rush Limbaugh? Some Ayatollah?

Nope, a woman, Viviane Mosé.
And the byline states that this person is a philosopher.


Ms. Mosé, here is my modest proposal: tell that to the girl who was the victim of gang rape in India, and who has just died in a hospital in Singapore.
