In Haïti, female victims given preference

Even though I haven't updated this blog in a while, surely this story is an example of female privilege rearing its ugly head once again (by the way, for the record, male privilege is equally ugly, but I digress). Privilege that, in a disaster, females are usually the first ones to receive aid. This is nothing new -- one only has to remember US Airways Flight 1549 for another recent instance of this phenomenon.

I should also say that words cannot express how not surprised I am at this news pertaining to Haitian earthquake aid. It was only a matter of time before some organization put a feminist spin on a human problem -- it was inevitable.
