On Feminism

A quote from David Gelernter, America-Lite: How Imperial Academia Dismantled Our Culture (and Ushered In the Obamacrats)

p. 145 “In Summer 2006, at an academic meeting, Harvard’s president Lawrence Summers wondered whether the far larger number of male than female scientists might not reflect some built-in property of most men versus most women. He didn’t endorse the idea; he simply wondered. His comments, according to the Boston Globe, ‘sparked international outrage’. Accordingly Summers abased himself, apologized profusely and acknowledged that he had acted like a dangerous crackpot lunatic, betraying the revolution and disgracing the university and himself. But he was sentenced to the maximum anyway: he was forced to resign the presidency as was sent away from Harvard, for a full year. At that point, Summers (no doubt) only wished that his feminist opponents had demanded the death sentence.”
