Then how do you explain the woman surgeon (at a prominent hospital in
the northeastern us-cannot remember where, but could find out if
anyone doubts this) who succesfully sued for discrimination when she
found out she was paid $30,000 less than her male peers?  This
happens all the time, and the reverse-case scenario is much less

Unfortunately, I am well aware that this comment requires a tip, but
I'm a relatively newbie, so I don't feel any tip I'd offer would be
anything new to anyone :)
