Letter: Feminist men

Sir: Dr Adrian Coyle, a psychologist, wonders what happens when men lay hands on feminine status (letter, 8 March), I can tell him.

Fifty years ago all nurses were women. Today 7 per cent of nurses are men. Yet 48 per cent of top nursing posts are held by men. What does one make of this?

Feminists can scream about a glass ceiling, unfairness to women, a conspiracy theory and so on. Psychologists can argue the male/female roles ad nauseam. To my mind it demonstrates one thing only: the vast majority of women want and need to be dominated by men, and feminists are simply wasting their time.
