Are stallions obsolete?

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd once wrote a book called Are Men Necessary? (Did I read it? Well, yes.) This weekend there’s an op-ed in the Times called “Men, Who Needs Them?” by one Greg Hampikian, professor of biology and criminal justice at Boise State University and the director of the Idaho Innocence Project.

I would suggest to Ms. Dowd and to Dr. Hampikian that they might want to take some extended vacation time in the land of Equestria, where the male/female ratio at birth is officially unstated — I speculated 40/100 in chapter 4 of The Sparkle Chronicles — and where stallions are apparently both prized for their rarity (no pun intended) and ignored for most everything else. Worldwide ponification is just a matter of time.
