Imagine there're no bake sales 

John Rosenberg says it's easy if you try.
Jessie has been so caught up in her work that, in addition to not having enough time to blog, she hasn�t closely followed the sorts of things that the blogs she used to read cover. As a result I had to explain to her exactly what an �affirmative action bake sale� is.

She commented immediately that Bryn Mawr could never have one.

�Why not?� I asked.

�Because,� she said, �no one would understand the parody. Everyone would think that it�s perfectly normal to charge different prices based on race, ethnicity, and sex.�
None dare call it "advancement".
