But maybe even that misses the point: It has nothing to do with anyone
_maintaining_ the status quo any more than the right mix of pherimones
cause an arousal.  Maybe, fantatic attention grabbers aside, the
traditional "old boys clubs" would really honestly /like/ to grant
equal status and access, but they are waiting (in vain) for a woman
who 'smells' right; until the pre-cambrian brain is patched with a new
action-pattern, this situation will always 'feel' somehow wrong to
them, even though rationally they see it as profitable and just (in
that order).

Hmmm ... social change through mass DNA manipulations?  Maybe, like
William Burroughs proposed back in the early 50's, the problem is
viral: Implementing Affirmative Action might require genetically
engineered virii to spread modified RNA and, whoo boy, that's a-gonna
open one great big kettle of fish.
