You mention burkas. Yeah, I do agree with you that the Middle East currently has a bad streak of sexism, as well as authoritarism, extremism and such.
But we must not overlook the fact that there’s a large number of Muslims who are opposed to thas as well, and frequently even more than we are.
And a curiosity about burkas: many Muslim women actually choose to wear them out of their own free will. They are patriots and, since they consider the burka to be a symbol of their culture, wear it proudly. There has been an event where a government proposal against burkas in England (I think) was actually met with animosity from the Muslim women.
Men over 50 are concerned about what they hear of the possibility of prostatic cancer. When to screen, when to perform a rectal exam and when to undergo prostatic biopsies and also at what intervals. Bad biopsies may give a whip to the prostate to develop CANCER.
When the PSA is in the gray zone between and there is no need for biopsies or medications if the free PSA level is not high and the ratio above 25.
One of the signs to remember for further investigations is the steadily rising PSA from yeah to year by one percent.
This is to say that anxiety in men should be controlled by good advice rather by extensive invasion of privacy. However trouble in urination and alike symptoms and abnormal values of free PSA and any ratio between the free PSA and the total less than 10 become a compulsory rule for investigation.
Your logic has some merit, Will, but try not to take it so seriously. This article isn’t meant to be taken as cold-hard fact. It’s the author’s opinion. A lot of the naysayers here obviously read it, took offense to the distinctions they think the author is making, and then felt upset because they probably fit into one of the areas they think wasn’t glorified in the article. Also, I personally wouldn’t feel comfortable calling anyone a computer scientist unless they studied and/or have a degree in CS. Just feels icky and wrong. *shiver*
