I don’t get my news from newspapers and radio. They’re dying mediums. And I don’t get my news from the television. There are always FAR better things on, like SVU. But every morning, I check in with SFgate and CNN, and every morning I run down the list of CNN’s twelve “Top Stories.”
This morning, I scanned those 12 top stories until I was forced to throw my cup of coffee at the computer. One headline proclaimed, “Men smarter, but just by 4 points, study finds.” And just two headlines away, the telling, “Men put off ER visits while game’s on, study says.”
I was so riled up about this bullshit, I didn't even notice "Women join military, risk lives, to get thinner."
Deep breaths. Deep breaths.
Um, what the fuck, CNN? First of all, I didn't realize you'd be pulling your topics from the reject cue cards from Regis and Kelly. Second of all, because this men are smarter crap has suddenly give me an irregular heartbeat, let me point out to your STUPID scientists that they might want to factor in...oh, I don't know...perhaps the fact that women have been treated like sub-humans since the beginning of civilization.
No one wants to hear my feminist rantings, so I'll just digress and hasten a guess that if men will suffer through a heartattack to see some touchdown and women will march off to Iraq to look cute, well perhaps we're all idiots...
