Why Are You So Angry?

Thegoodman really, really wants to know. If you do not consider yourself a failure, that is great. Why then are you so angry about this situation? If it has worked out well for you, what is driving your passionate hatred for our patriarch society? Like many gender discussions/arguments, your approach has made me feel guilty…

Over at the mansplaining thread, you can read literally hundreds of hilarious, annoying, frustrating, heartbreaking stories of how women are constantly subjected to intrusive, incessant, insensitive, inane mansplaining. Interspersed you will also find comments from d00dly d00ds whinging away about how awful it is that women are talking so MEAN about men, and their mansplanations…

The Thread That Keeps On Giving…

That mansplainer thread just won’t quit – it is the gift that keeps on giving. Well, if you can call continuing recitations of the endless ways women are constantly mansplained by the d00dly mainsplainers of the world a “gift”. Along with the mansplainer d00ds who show up to mansplain how mansplaining does not exist, should…

I warned Jon, I did. D00d, that thread is for MOCKING MANSPLAINERS. Now, here I will repost Jon’s mis-directed comment.

Please feel free to add to the list in the comments section. 1. “When is the baby due?” I’m not pregnant, you douchebag. I’m fat. If I were pregnant, I’d probably be prancing around telling everyone and her…

I have an acquaintance who works in what some of you professorial types jokingly refer to as the dark side – administration. Ha ha ha. Yeah, I was an administrator in academia myself, you know, and let me tell you, you should be grateful to your administrators, if only for the fact that if they…

I love Ursula K. le Guin’s the Earthsea series, and recently finished reading the final novel, The Other Wind. Those who are familiar with the Earthsea books will know that among other topics, le Guin explores traditional gender roles, their change, and men’s disparagement of women’s power. Towards the end of The Other Wind, one…

Normative Heterosexuality In ScienceLand

Female Science Professor has a great Q&A post, So They Had To Hire A Woman. Here’s a sample: Question: So you’re going to get a Ph.D.? Couldn’t you find anyone to marry you? Answer 1: Why would I want to get married when so many men are just like you? Answer 2: That’s right, and…

You all may be aware of the moronically stupid column by John Tierney that ran in the NY Times recently, an opinion piece disguised as reporting. I haven’t had a chance yet to give my own response to this piece of tripe, or to show you how it is but one more piece in Christina…
