Air conditioning: a cruel, sexist plot against women

This week, The Washington Post spent two days, three articles and over 1,500 words (some of which manages to quote itself) explaining that air conditioning is sexist because sometimes, in the summer, women think offices are too cold while men do not.

“Air conditioning is another big, sexist plot,” revealed WaPo local writer Petula Dvorak in a Thursday column.

Then, on Friday, Dvorak claimed one man wants to hold menopausal women responsible for cold offices but he is wrong, see, because the real problem is men who dress in suits.

“Every single woman I talked to in downtown Washington on a hot, humid July afternoon was thawing out,” Dvorak initially explained after her investigation into sexist air conditioning which involved speaking randomly to some people at lunch.
