Boys' Adventure

In Harry Harrison's space opera parody Star Smashers of the Galaxy Rangers, the brave boy heroes are facing with barely concealed glee the life-threatening adventures that they will have to undergo to win the Giant Plot Coupon. The female lead (i.e., prize) calmly points out a strategy whereby they could grab the coupon at no danger to themselves, but they ignore her because "she was just a silly hysterical girl."

The Boys' Adventure Club known as the George W. Bush Administration had an exciting plan to keep the economy expanding forever, and didn't listen to silly hysterical girls like Sheila Bair and Brooksley Born who thought there might be something dangerous about subprime loans. Oliver Willis discusses.
