For Feminist Readers: A Fun Little Thought Experiment
The first of these two worlds, which our thought experiment requires you to choose from, is called Plan A. In this world, the male population would be composed mainly of people like the celebrated Hugo Schwyzer. Everywhere you wandered, you would meet psychic counterparts of Hugo, and the few who were different would all be "worse" in some way. And that is the reality you would be forced to endure for the rest of your life. Got the picture?
Very well, the next of these worlds is called Plan B. In this world, the male population would consist mainly of critters very much like to my good self -- Fidelbogen! And as before, the remainder would be worse. Got that?
All right, now let's add an extra special wrinkle to the story.
If you choose Plan A, then, as I said, you will be forced to endure that reality for the rest of your life. There is no exit from Plan A.
However. . . if you choose Plan B, and it doesn't quite suit your fancy, then you will be given the option of "transferring" to Plan A.
So you will need to think very, very carefully about this, won't you? You see, although you are welcome to transfer out of Plan B and into Plan A any time you like, it is a one-way highway. For once you arrive in the Plan A world, you will be stuck there for the rest of your life. You can NOT turn around and go back to Plan B again. There is no exit from Plan A. There is never any exit; Plan A is forever!
You will want to ponder this. You will want to mind your A's and B's, won't you?
