Even Women Have Uncle Toms

Yeah I avoid that term like the plague, but wow. Man, listen, or rather, Woman, listen:

I can't help it, but reading about such episodes of screaming, gushing and swooning makes me wonder whether women -- I should say, "we women," of course -- aren't the weaker sex after all. Or even the stupid sex, our brains permanently occluded by random emotions, psychosomatic flailings and distraction by the superficial. Women "are only children of a larger growth," wrote the 18th-century Earl of Chesterfield. Could he have been right?

Better people than me have taken this on, but it just amazes me that this sort of stuff gets published. People just want to see a fight these days--preferably, apparently, a catfight.
