HEADLINE – Surgeon resigns leadership post over editorial

MUNCIE, Indiana – A University of Indiana surgeon has been fired from his post with the American College of Surgeons after writing an editorial in the organization’s newspaper that critics say could possibly be interpreted as being demeaning to women.

In a column the surgeon described as “light-hearted,” he wrote that it was a “big mistake” for men to provide women with rights of any kind and that, instead of enjoying legally protected equality in employment and education, it should be “punishable by death” to teach a woman to read and write.

“Women should be bought and sold like cattle and kept in pens until needed,” the surgeon stated.

The editorial angered a few members of the Chicago-based surgeons’ group, who said it bordered on misogyny.

  1. What is this thing called misogyny? My cleaner girlfriend once said I had it because I wouldn’t move the beer table to allow her access for vacuuming and dusting. Then I took antibiotics and it cleared up, just after she moved out.

    Hmmm … is there a link where I can sign up for his future missives? The man is a role model I say and is just a misunderstood genius.

    Surely it doesn’t border on Misogyny. From memory, Misogyny shares borders with Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo and Curmudgeon. No way does this border Misogyny.

    Ohh I think this is a long way from the border. He is deep in Indian country.

    or was that bordering on racist?

    Hey, I just print it the way I see it. Evidently, the recent global economic down turn has resulted in fewer competent editors being employed.

  9. Something important I would like to mention is that personal computer memory demands generally go up along with other improvements in the technologies. For instance, whenever new generations of processor chips are brought to the market, there is certainly usually a matching increase in the dimensions demands of all personal computer memory plus hard drive space. This is because the software operated through these processor chips will inevitably increase in power to leverage the new technological know-how.
