Sex segregation in the oddest places....

I've just noticed that the speakers featured at the home page of the American conference talk organization TED are presented in a sex-segregated arrangement. There is a hint at what "idea" possibly might have inspired this layout in the misandry of one of the featured talks, the recently-posted one by Philip Zimbardo in which there is a negative slant on some apparent observations about differences between young males and young females. On the bright side, there are some quite interesting comments about Zimbardo's talk. I'm pleased that I'm not the only person who believes that misandry and sex segregation are NOT ideas worth spreading.

And another thing that I'd like to mention; the spellchecker at Blogger does not recognize the word "misandry" as a proper word. Hmmmm.

TED: ideas worth spreading.
