>> The comic posted makes a point which you can't ignore by trowing up more questions.

The comic posted misses a point entirely. In real world such a justice is not usually achieved by putting more boxes and making the low higher. It is usually done by cutting down those who are higher. (and this is mostly how affirmative action-style initiatives deal with it) The result is much more graphical and I won't post it here. But the point is I hate analogies when they miss all the important details. I do not think that this detail is one which can be easily ignored.

That's a very dark view of the world that I don't think is borne out by either intentions or facts. You can only believe we are diminished by women's outreach if you think that any job performed by a woman is taken away from a man.
