Question from Instapundit

From Instapundit comes the question:

IS THE NEW YORK TIMES THE PLACE TO DEBATE THIS QUESTION? Are modern men manly enough?

My instant reaction is that if you read the New York Times, then your masculinity is seriously in question. Unless you go over to laugh at them in which case you’re okay.

SwampWoman’s Dating Tip #10: “You are dating a couple different guys, both literate. When you are out with them, both have occasion to pick up their mail. You notice that one has a Popular Mechanics in his mail. The other has the New York Times. Which one should you keep and which one should you throw back into the dating pool?” Well, duh. Keep the one that can fix your appliances and vehicle, of course.

SwampMan, who has a higher-than-average percentage of Neanderthal lurking in his DNA, hooted in derision at the question because he’s of the firm belief that columnists for the New York Times would scream like little toddlers and run for the Mommy shelter of their man-free enclaves if they ever encountered actual men. Particularly if they were engaged in man-type activities such as comparing the features and prices of their latest weapons.

I thought that was a pretty sexist observation by SwampMan. We wimmenfolk compare the features and prices of our latest weapons, too.
