Slog: News & Arts

RSS icon Comments on "Gender Stereotypes" Does Not Mean What Maureen Dowd Thinks It Means


I never really liked Maureen Dowd. I tried reading Are Men Necessary? back in the day, but found it loaded with so much stereotyping language (ie, women are obsessed with shoes, etc) that I couldn't finish it.

Right on, ECB. As usual.

@2. Um, yes, there is. It's called "if you don't like it, then don't read it, and most definitely do not comment on it". Since you (presumably) can read the title and the author of the post, it's pretty easy to skip.

It's what I do with Jen Graves art posts and Charles' architecture posts (which I'm usually not interested in), as well as the Reading Tonight posts (since I don't live in Seattle).

Maureen Dowd is annoyingly annoying. But, she has red hair. I could almost nominate her for "Crush of Shame". But, no crush, just shame.

Your one-sided schtick is insulting, ECB.

Maureen Dowd's column is one of the reasons I subscribe to The NYT, even though she occasionally appears in The Seattle Times, to which I also subscribe. That she offends doctrinaire humorless harpies adds to her appeal.

Also, it is always a pleasure to look at and listen to Dowd when she appears on television.

Hey ECB!

Great job jumping on the MoDo-is-sexist bandwagon! Still looking forward to an original insight from you on this meme. Anytime now, I'm sure.

In the meantime, at least you're here to chronicle others' analyses.
