Sauce For The Gander Is Sauce For The Goose!


I learnt a new word this morning. And how! Degendering.

de·gen·der (d-jndr)
tr.v. de·gen·dered, de·gen·der·ing, de·gen·ders
To make gender-neutral, as by eliminating reference to gender or sex.

Only yesterday, a lady blogger friend and I had a discussion online which went something like this.

Me: Will we ever have global peace?

LF: NO WAY, as long as man is in charge!

Me: There!  You can write a post saying how it will be possible only if all global leaders are women!

LF: If two women in a kitchen cannot agree, how in hell would female global leaders bring around world peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me: Okay, let us compromise then. Let us make all global leaders transgenders.

LF: Great idea!

And this morning I get to read this very interesting article in the Time Magazine. I am wondering if I should buy the book! Should be interesting for someone who repeatedly tried to get his wife to go to work so that he could be a house husband when it would have been scandalous.


Desperate situations call for desperate measures. Our neighbour to the West, The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is desperate. It is broke, and is getting financed by other broke countries who are now beginning to ask Pakistan to improve/increase tax collections.

It is easier said than done in that country.

Have a look at this hilarious story that was published in the New York Times. Since it is also a blog, please do not omit the comments.
