Do yout think there is a special place in "hell" for people who show favoritism for one gender over another, no matter who may be in need?
Quoting themissheather:

I don't believe in Hell, but agree with the sentiment.

This post is not about Tina and Taylor. It's about the M. Albright statement which I think is elementary.

 I don't think all women are worth supporting. Lorena Bobbitt has my support though. ;)

Ha ha ha! I'll have to tell my DH that one. He's from Ohio (but not Cleveland).

Why Women Mean Business By Kerrie Halmi “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” Madeleine Albright, Former U.S. Secretary of State One dynamic that hinders women from being more successful is something that most people don’t speak about openly: women’s damaging competition with other women. By “damaging competition”, we mean competition that is not productive, but instead is personal and mean- spirited in nature. It is a “taboo topic” because most people don’t want to admit it is happening (or worse yet, that they engage in it). There is also a fear that by speaking about it openly, this could cause people to justify stereotypes and biases against women in the workplace. However, if it is not acknowledged, it can not be managed. Damaging competition can take many forms: - Bullying - Passive-Aggressive Behavior - Back-stabbing - Gossip - Sabotaging of a career - Paying women less or rating them lower than men, when not deserved.

I would agree with that also. Was there a back story I missed?
