    but I won't be accepting responsibility for the AIDS epidemic in South Africa today. Try me tomorrow, I might be more open to it then.

    It's not a terribly apt comparison as I'm not in a position to make bodily health decisions for others. If you like holding up Mbeki as a reverse role model, a more apt comparison might be to say that the male medical establishment, to the extent there is one, is more like Thabo Mbeki: it's trying to make personal health decisions for half the population that will actually not affect their own bodies and which is based on reducing medical options and, coincidentally, increases profits for another male-dominated segment of the populace. I doubt I would make that comparison though because it's so off the meter of what I would personally consider reasonable.
