No man thinks he needs to measure up to women.
Some women think they need to prove, or men need to be made to believe, or men need to be made to admit, that women are as tough as men, as competent as men, as smart as men - even as able to drink dreadful whiskey at room temperature as men.
They are called "feminists".
Some of them insist subordinates call them "Sir", at least on television.
No man wants to be called "Ma'am".
Or even "Mum", like the Queen.
What about Jennings?
You have me there.
