    In reply to:
    <<<<The girls to whom you would grant these unfair advantages in
    order to make up for past unfair treatment DID NOT ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE
    this unfair past. Furthermore, the boys whom you would penalize for having
    advantages in the past DID NOT ACTUALLY EXPERIENCE these advantages. Girls
    of today did not experience the disadvantages of yesterday, and the
    boys of today did not experience the advantages of yesterday, so why
    compensate and penalize them, respectively, for what they did not

    Two points in response to this:

    A) The equation of compensation for girls with the penalization of
    boys is specious.

    B) Girls of today are experiencing disadvantages of _today_, and
    boys of today are experiencing advantages of _today_.
