An important decision reported by the BBC (not the Onion, I swear) takes us to the crossroads where affirmative action and gender studies meet. According to a ruling rendered yesterday by an Indian court, eunuchs are tecnically men and therefore cannot serve in a mayoral position reserved for women: “Indian court rejects eunuch mayor.” The BBC helpfully explains that the election of eunuchs has become the means by which Indian voters express their dissatisfaction with mainstream politics. Don’t miss this story!
UPDATE by Hindrocket: I think that’s happened a few times here too.
