Someone forgot to tell me it's Women Are Better Than Men Day
Right after I published that last rah-rah-women post, I got an email from my little sister (not regarding the post). She recently got back from a one-year stint in Kosovo with the Army and is rediscovering her love for the email forward:

Eleven people were hanging on a rope under a helicopter, ten men and one woman. The rope was not strong enough to carry them all, so they decided that one had to leave, because otherwise they were all going to fall. They weren't able to pick anyone; then the woman gave a very touching speech.
She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids or for men in general, and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return. As soon as she finished the speech, all the men started clapping.
She's right, I did like it.
