Exactly.  This was the point I was trying to make a long time ago when I was
attacking sexism in general with the defense of "deny the selfish ego".
Nobody seemed to understand me, so I decided to take a different turn and
"fight fire with fire".  Perhaps by helping others to understand that the
problems they face are not only their problems, and that there are many others
out there, they will ...broaden their horizons.

I don't know.  Perhaps there is another approach which I haven't thought of
yet.  For now, however, I will remain on the sexism subject, for it seems very
important to the people (besides TS heirarchy(sp?)) who post on the ng.
