Are Women Necessary?

According to The New York Times, the esteemed Maureen Dowd is writing a new book, Are Men Necessary? When Sexes Collide. I don't know exactly what the point of the book will be, as the description is vague. But if a man wrote a book titled, Are Women Necessary? there would be outrage at the chauvinistic crudeness and insensitivity at such a title. I wonder if there will be any such outrage over Ms. Dowd's book title. Somehow, I doubt it.

But maybe I'm just a pessimist.
