What a new and original hypothesis. How come no one has thought of this before. This is ground-breaking, Earth shattering, self serving too; and of course rubbish. >Seek out female researchers company? Well, that is a new way to >put it. Are you saying you avoid lectures by women in the field? Jerry is probably like me; he sorts out the fringers and the nutcases from the rest whether they be female or male. >I hope not. That would be a clear case of discrimination against >an entire gender. Last I heard, you were married. Surely, you >trust your wife's opinion and seek her counsel. What about the women only UFO conference; would you not agree that this is discrimination? It would be interesting to see a women's only Astronomy conference or a women's only Physics conference.
