I've been trying to stay out of all of this, but typically when one is speaking about actual women, and not continuing the metaphor posed in the posted link, one does not speak of fellowships. Thus, all of this has probably been taken wildly out of context to be used as ammunition for this inane battle that is going on.

I appreciated the humor in quiz's post, and grae's response was equally light hearted.
Let me now take the opportunity to make a series of racist and sexist remarks, as I have made no attempt whatsoever to maintain anonymity at any point. Physicsdude, you may then use your top-10 power to black list me from academia forever and make the ivory tower ever taller.
