Totally off topic but triggered by the attempted assasination of Malala Yousafzia I fantasized about a rogue geneticist who unleashed a virus that targeted men and women with the 'signature' mid-eastern gene so that mideastern men could only father female children and mideastern women could only carry female embryos; called the Malala Curse it took the mideastern countries a year or two to figure out exactly what was going on ... then I woke up. Really I've got to stop reading so much science fiction. Plus despite the news it is pretty much a miniscule percentage of the religion that comprises the Taliban so maybe the Malala Curse is a little bit of overkill.


As a woman who is racially jewish, that makes me middle eastern. Being a female computer programmer, I assure you my family promotes the equality of women. Please don't curse my family. We've got some awesome men. ;-)
