But that’s as ... Read More

When a Washington Post article about the possibility of women being allowed to serve on submarines popped into my newsfeed this morning, it was kind of a no-brainer that misogynistic reader comments would abound.  Still, I wasn't expecting one commenter to suggest women ''were sterilized'' before taking the plunge, or that another would recommend a plumber for all the tampons that block up the pipes on the seafarer.  Do people really still think like ...
