I was watching an episode of "The L Word" this week during dinner, in which one of the characters begins taking testosterone in the lead-up to a sex-change operation. Pat, ever the bearer of random trivia, casually says, "I read the other day that a sex-change operation for a man to become a woman costs about $3000, but for a woman to become a man costs about $15, 000." I stopped mid-bite, feeling that dark ooze of disparity drip over me, and said, "Great. Not only do women pay more for dry-cleaning than men, and get paid less, we also have to pay more for a sex-change operation."

Well, think about it. It probably costs more to add junk than to simply scoop it out.
