Masculinity is a treatable medical condition.

Look, I do understand the hypocrisy involved in my advancing political opinions, but can I just comment on this view going around that Trump's election is in some way a consequence of 'political correctness'?

Trump was elected merely because of a ridiculous quirk in the US electoral system, that might have made sense in the eighteenth century but has no relevance to the modern world: namely, that men are allowed to vote.  The country basically voted 54% to 42% for Clinton, before all those male votes were taken into account and it's absurd this should have been allowed to distort the result.  Sure, it's nice to let men feel they can take part, but to actually let them cast ballots unsupervised is just political correctness gone mad, and now we have to live with the consequences.

I mean, honestly, you wouldn't let a man make decisions about the family finances, or how best to iron your blouse or what time he goes to bed, would you?  So why on earth would you let him have a say in choosing the President?

Doesn't make sense to me.  But then, I am 'chromosomally challenged'* so what do I know?

(* and yes, I am using that politically correct phrase ironically. What's wrong with just saying 'a stupid boy' for goodness sake?  When did we stop calling things what they are?)

Thank goodness things round here are still sane and matriarchal. 

She seems to be controlling his masculinity problem nicely.

She loves her work.  You will too.

I think she's recognising that his behaviour has been causing pain in their marriage - but not quite enough pain.

I wonder how the consultant goes about measuring her?

Secondary sexual characteristics - they're even more annoying than the primary ones, sometimes.  Fortunately, a simple surgical procedure can deal with both at the same time.


  1. As someone of a more hirsute nature, I had to cringe at that last one.

    1. Never been tempted by a session of non-stop hard-core plucking?
