What a gorilla can teach us about fighting sexism

Our great lessons in how to behave can come from the most unexpected sources. This week: Pay attention to an animal in a zoo. An actor on the stage. They can teach us about our attitudes toward women.

On Monday, the Dallas Zoo announced that it was moving Patrick, a "gregarious" 430-pound Western lowland gorilla, to Columbia, S.C.'s Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens to have a little solo time till he works out his personality issues. If only all sexist, aggressive apes could be similarly dealt with. Is there room at that zoo for YouTube commenters?
