The Gender Card

Helen Dragas so should not have been re-appointed to the UVA Board of Visitors. Has any other single individual ever done so much damage to the reputation of a University? Maybe, I don’t know, but she’s got to be up there. So to have Virginia Governor McDonnell justify her appointment in the following way is just pathetic and offensive to any feminist (or, right-thinking person, for that matter):
McDonnell (R) brushed aside those questions.
“I am …concerned that the first female rector seemed to become the sole target of recent criticism,’’ McDonnell said in a statement.
As if this is somehow about gender. I cannot imagine that will fool too many people.
