My daughter is taking high school physics. This morning, she told me about the class results following the midterm. “Four people got A’s; four people got B’s; and six people got C’s.” Then she giggled and added, “All the people who got C’s were girls!”
Deadpan, I said, “Your teacher must be a sexist.” (I was thinking, of course, although she couldn’t know this, about the way the Ivy League feminists tried to destroy Larry Summer’s career for daring to suggest that there might be a connection between gender and women’s low representation in STEM degrees.)
“No, that’s not true” my daughter replied, quite shocked that I would suggest such a thing. “He teaches everyone the same way.”
“I was just joking,” I told her.
“Well,” she answered, “A lot of people aren’t joking when they say that.”
Leftism sucks both humor and reality out of just about everything.
