This thread.

I have no excuse for missing it, save for maybe the fact that on August 19 I was too drunk to do stuff online*.

I weeped for joy. Well, a little.

Liz Henry:

Part of it is that evolutionarily, men were hunters, so they’re not used to paying attention to their environment in the way people are.

*Single tear*


It really isn’t his fault, the poor dear. (I try not to give him too hard of a time about his spelling — thinking about it, the internet would probably eat him alive. You know how vicious bloggers can get when they see some poor struggling man who can’t operate a spellchecker. You’d think they’d never heard of Firefox!).

*Falls over laughing*


Wow, it never even occurred to me to ask if my husband wanted to blog. He’s always so busy with our kids and cooking; I doubt he’d have the time, let alone the interest.



My friends are going to have a open space next month as a safe space to talk about Robert Heinlein, Macroeconomics, and our NBA fantasy league.

*Cracks up a bit*

softestbullet in response to whump:

What the hell is this “safe space” thing? Are you accusing us of something?!?? I think you need to apologize.



I don’t quite get what you’re saying, Podblack. Are you suggesting that men don’t have the same educational opportunities that women do? Of course they do! There is legislation that says they have to have equal education, so it must be true. If they aren’t interested in science and academia (and my blog reading suggests that they aren’t) then it’s not the educational system that is to blame. People keep harping on about this, but it’s nonsensical — we already have equality. Anyway, aren’t there boys in the Congo being raped? Shouldn’t you be worrying about that instead of whether some purely hypothetical men might feel like they’re being discriminated against in the educational sphere. (Where are these men, anyway? I talked to my house boy, and he said he doesn’t feel discriminated against.)


And then, there were the guys who didn’t catch up on the satire *snort*.

*Unlikely. However, a plausible lie.
