Thanks for the interesting and thought-provoking post.
We have some real problems, such as the discrimination of women at work-places, the gender disparity in philosophy and the like.
How to deal with them? Real solutions (such as a cultural campaign in favour of fathers taking time off for their children, or child-cares in each institute) are expensive and difficult. Fortunatately enough, there are cheap solutions which look even better, such as abolishing gender-related names (at the university of Leipzig, everyone is called "Professorin", literally the feminine form of the German term for "professor") or introducing reserved places for women (so that one will always think that if there is a woman around, it must be only because she got an easier path and not because she is just a bright human being).
