    at the blatant sexism and oppression by some women in the corporate world who've gotten "theirs" and are determined to pull up the ladder behind them.

    Long ago, I worked for a small company that was bought by a much larger firm with a female CEO at the helm. Some of my female colleagues thought this was just awesome. I told them to be careful what they wished for.

    This [insert unacceptable female slur here] had the audacity to tell senior level women that they'd "better not even think about having kids" if they expected to get ahead in the company. She also spent plenty of time getting articles in professional journals trumpeting her own success, including the history of crushing her male mentors and driving them out of the company on her climb up to CEO.

    When one male VP was found to have made a bad decision, she busted down ALL VPs and senior people (something that hit many more male than female employees). It was a shocking display of "I'm doing this just because I can, fools!".

    Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.
