"Exactly what do you imply when you call the Humanist Party a group of feminists?" the young man asked, encouraged.

Long's gaze swept out, noting the mild amusement on the faces of the men students, the growing annoyance in the women. He fixed the reporter for the campus paper with a level stare. "I suppose you feel that because only 30 percent of our legislatures are women, that men still dominate Congress?"

Professor Long startles his students and the press by announcing to the world that a highly organized band of feminists are manipulating the U.S. government and seeking to control the world. (This being true,) the feminists send out one of their goon squads to silence the professor for good.
