Alex, I started this topic.  Since you believe that the authors of a topic have the ultimate say in what is discussed, why not leave this alone.

Frankly, the fact that you take issue with every word I write, and the basis for your taking issue, is obvious to all.  Too transparent.  So let's move on, stop complaining, and either address the issue or ignore this thread completely.


Indeed, your post is well-taken.  I shall leave you to your largess in this topic.

And I trust that you will respect all of the other posters in their respective topics as well.

May I respectfully remind you that this is not an appropriate place in which to enter into an argument such as this.

Whilst I can understand how you arrived at this point, the topic is 'Women and Higher Education' and I would be most grateful if we could return to that.

Should you wish to settle your differences of opinion concerning religion may I please ask you to avail yourselves of the private message function.

Sorry, Martyn, but AlexP, by order of the FA, is forbidden to pm me.

However, I think he has agreed to stop posting here.

During the 19th century in America many people believed that if a woman were to study at advanced levels, her brain would draw too much blood away from her womb, leaving her infertile or likely to produce inferior offspring.

Was the disapproval of women in higher education in 19th c Russia born of similar ideas?
