Repellent, it appears, is the mot-de-semaine:
I think American society would benefit greatly if we got rid of all the Sara Jessica Parker wannabe stinky swanks and sent them to the deepest arm pits of Africa. We should then bring in real women from all over the world who would know how to treat a man and let the man handle the finances.
Just one comment from the prime specimens in this thread. Read the lot (unless you have a TMJ condition – teethgrinding is really bad for that).

Addendum: There are more prime specimens elsewhere, enough for us all! However, if all us stinky skanks don’t start behaving more like real women right now, they’re going to just not talk to us, and they might even burn their ties!
MENINISM is the catchcry of a movement of males who will storm the streets and burn their ties, rallying against the “all men are bastards” image that has an entire sex pigeonholed as violent, heartless and untrustworthy.
This is according to a new study saying there is a competing interest to the feminist struggle for equality; men and boys are now the target of negative stereotypes.
The research shows almost 70 per cent of social commentary on the male gender is unfavourable ““ portraying men as violent, sexually abusive, unable to be trusted with children, “deadbeat dads” and commitment-phobic.
Dr Macnamara apparently found it unnecessary to actually do a comparative study for whether mentions of women in media were equally negative, because apparently it’s just obvious that if the media is making men feel unfairly maligned by stereotyping then it couldn’t possibly also do the same to women.
