    but in practice, this may be a hundred years away.

    In American society, men and women use the expression "man up" as a way to manipulate men. And it is often quite effective in achieving that result.

    This, racial discrimination, sex discrimination, and sexual preference discrimination will not go away tomorrow without society as a whole recognizing that it is unfair and undesirable enough to ban it from everyday use.
