#1 Remember, it was never about equality - it has always been about power.

#2 The implication here is that women never interrupt when men are speaking or, if they do it's OK. I always thought it was rude for anybody to interrupt when someone else is speaking otherwise you end up with an incoherent shouting match. Maybe, as P2k says, it's about power rather than equality. I think it should be about common courtesy and common sense.

#3 We should always endeavor to have a civil, well reasoned discourse regardless of gender.

#5 If you don't interrupt a woman, how will she know she's wrong?
