I'm from the very non-descript DC suburb of Silver Spring. Main claims to fame, one single solitary insulting and inaccurate article in "the Economist," Dominique Dawes and her biggest fan Oliver Willis. Now there is someone who tells Charlotte Allen where her article belongs.
Silver Spring, Md.: Yes, women’s reasoning is sometimes clouded by emotion, but so is men’s. Why is “swooning” so much worse than murderous rage? How are “Eat, Love, Pray” and “Grey’s Anatomy” any more self-indulgent and fantastical than “On the Road” and James Bond movies? Are romance novels a less realistic picture of male-female relations than “Big Butt Sluts #23″? In short, why do you consider men’s irrational distortions forgiveable, while women’s are a sign of lower intelligence?
Charlotte Allen: I agree that men do many dumb things, and many men have dumb tastes.
Wish I had written that (the spellling errror is forgivable).
