    “A study of the 2005 general election in the UK found that in the Conservative party, men were selected to contest seats that were easier to win, while women were selected to contest seats that were unwinnable. Furthermore, an analysis of CEO transitions among Fortune 500 companies over a 15-year period found that white women, and women and men of color were more likely than white men to get promoted to CEO when firms were performing weakly. Another study found that when asked, law students were more likely to assign a problematic legal case to a female attorney than a male attorney.”

    Be careful!
    Without that literally-never-existed glass ceiling, there remains less and less to blame on white male privilege.

    Why do I get the feeling they're really just after my penis--- and not in a good way?
