There's an old joke, slightly modified:
Four mothers are sitting around a table discussing their children.
Mama 1: "My boy works for the sanitation department. It's a dirty job, but he earns good pay and has city benefits, and in 20 years he can retire with a good pension."
The other ladies agree this is a good thing for her son, and congratulate her for raising such a hard working man.
Mama 2: "My daughter just finished veterinarian school and is opening up her own clinic. She's already got a string of people waiting to bring their pets in, so she's expecting to be a big success."
The other ladies agree this is a good thing for her daughter, and congratulate her for raising such a talented woman.
Mama 3: "My daughter just got promoted to vice president of her company's division in the Northeast. Her salary doubled and on top of that, she caught the eye of some pretty important players in her industry, so it looks like she's really going places."
The other ladies agree this is a good thing for her daughter, and congratulate her for raising such an industrious woman.
Mama 4: "My son completed college and immediately got involved in politics. He's in the state legislature now, and thinks he's got a good chance of being elected to a high office someday, maybe even as the next Republican President."
The other ladies comfort the crying woman, congratulating her for being so strong in the face of such humiliation and pain.
