The Harem Syndrome - the occurrence of women fighting over what seems to be the sole man in the vicinity - was so artfully illustrated in the movie, Raise the Red Lantern. In that movie no one much liked the man, but they could have their favourite bean soup if he shone his favour upon them. That was enough to snip off each other's ears.

Young ladies of today's generation might scoff at such an idea. But replace the fried green tomatoes they lust after, with the pesto gnocchi beloved by another woman, and they would just as easily succumb to the Harem Syndrome. Many more modern women would be earless if equal rights for all genders had not put a stop to such barbaric diets.
