This is a man's world

In Iraq

Reuel Marc Gerecht on Meet the Press, August 21, discussing the forthcoming Iraqi constitution which may strip Iraqi women of the basic human rights that they enjoyed for 40 years with Saddam Hussein : "Women's social rights are not critical to the evolution of democracy. We hope they're there, I think they will be there, but I think we need to keep this perspective."

In North America

Male office worker to a male colleague: «Hi Y! How you doing?»
Same male office worker to a female colleague: «Hi X! Why so serious? Come on, give me a smile! That's a good girl!».

In Asia

A guy trying to court me : «Do you like movies ? Maybe I’ll take you to a movie sometimes.»
Me : «Why ? Do you think I can’t go by myself ?»
