Only Men Blog?

I just had to post this since most of you guys & gals are not from Canada and probably haven't read this ridiculous article today.

Check this out:

Why are bloggers male?
By Margaret Wente, The Globe and Mail

And this is the nice comment I left for her:

So, go ahead and submit your 'nice' comments now!

(if you read through the comments, you'll see that my 'You're an idiot' comment is quite the hit)

I can't be fucked signing up to comment on that idiot woman's article but please let her know on my behalf that I just entered Woman Bloggers into my Google search engine and it came up with 17,800,000 results. I just read an article in a less idiotic publication (which i can't recall cuz i'm so darn pissed) that discussed how Blogging has opened up a whole new playing field for housewives and women desperate to communicate beyond their average suburban existences. It vexes me to no end when so-called professional women go out there and make blanket statements that undermine their own friggin' sex, like we don't have enough misconceived prejudiced shit to contend with. What the fuck's wrong with her? LOVED your comment on her blog, Sheri. You rock!

The only thing I could think of to do was call her a name. She deserved it.
Also, now I'm kind of pissed that I fell for this. I'm sure she just wrote this because she was told to gain some exposure for the newspaper.

Yes, the thought crossed my mind when I read the Editor's Note about Female Bloggers taking her on in an upcoming post. In any case, you did good Sheri. Paid or not - what an idiotic thing to say.

She just comes up with a load of nonsense, not just in saying that men dominate blogging but in saying that men have more opinions. That's nonsense. Sounds to me like she's living in the dark ages.

Loved your comment!

That woman is a complete idiot, like you say. In fact, calling her an idiot, is an insult to idiots!

Deep breath.... :)
