worthwhile looking at the likely sex of most of the people posting here, or 
editing or writing in NEW LEFT REVIEW or HISTORICAL MATERIALISM or other 
left journals and asking why it tends to go at least 5/1 male. 

  Primarily because they exist in a patriarchal society. 
  The socialist revolution to take power out of the hands of the capitalist 
class and also the transformation of society from a class divided, patriarchal 
one to a classless society is to be done by people as they exist in the 
capitalist, patriarchal, racist, and what have you society. 
  People change themselves by changing the conditions we live under. 

  For those people calling themselves "Marxists" (whatever they mean by 
that) should go back and read Marx' "Theses on Feuerbach" and the "Critique 
of the Gotha Program".
