The war between the sexes is never-ending, but the battleground is dotted with the white flags of uneasy truces. Men and women have embraced such a truce when discussing what Dominique Strauss-Kahn is said to have committed in a Manhattan hotel suite.

According to Pascal Bruckner, we in the west suffer from neurotic guilt, a condition imposed upon us by the high priests of the left. This secular clerisy are heirs to the Christian tradition of original sin, which universalized guilt by claiming that humans are fallen and must redeem themselves.
