"A perverted public sentiment tolerates and fosters the inconsistencies of profanity, tobacco alcohol and vice in men and condemns these habits as unpardonable sins when indulged in by women. By practice men are less consistent than women for no other reason than that public sentiment permits them to be; women are better than men for no other reason than that public sentiment compels it." Prof. Thomas W. Shannon, president of the Single Standard Eugenic movement, as quoted in the Minneapolis Sunday Tribune on August 1, 1915. [Minneapolis Star-Tribune]
