Is there a dumber form of posturing than writing “Say it to my face” in an email?
a lot of dudes are calling me a bigot
natashavc: I get emails in the middle of the night from guys who read my Atlantic piece. A couple of them have been hostile (most of them are related to sodomy!). In all of the pissy ones the dude refers to me as a ‘bigot’ rather than a sexist. I wonder if they choose the term ‘bigot’ over ‘sexist’ because to call a woman sexist isn’t as powerful because…well, isn’t it obvious? hoping that one...

Guys, just be careful that the url you’re pasting into a hyperlink really is the url and not some hypersensitive text from a personal email or gchat conversation. It’s the kind of mistake that some people on Tumblr or elsewhere might exploit for their own amusement.
A Real Interview I Did
Me: So you do a blog about lumberjacks?
Yvonne: Yes it's called loveforlumberjacks.tumblr.com.
Me: Okay and when did you start this blog about lumberjacks.
Yvonne: I started it about a couple months ago. Yeah a couple months ago, before the winter.
Yvonne: I really love beards and I was talking about it a lot and my friends know I that love beards and I figured it was a good way to write about it in an anonymous way.
Me: In an anonymous way?
Yvonne: Nobody knows who I am. Nobody knows the author of the blog.
Me: Can you tell me who you are?
Yvonne: My name's Yvonne [Inaudible]. I don't know just I love lumberjacks I love beards.
Me: What's the connection between lumberjacks and beards for you?
Yvonne: Usually, well the idea of a lumberjack is a man who's out chopping down trees, being manly and building a house. And he doesn't care about shaving his face. He's manly and has a big beard on his face. Which is really hot. If you haven't noticed, there are a ton of women here. We love beards!
Me: Women love beards?
Yvonne: Some women really love beards and I’m one of them.
Me: Does that mean you don't like clean-shaven men?
Yvonne: No no no. No, it doesn't mean that. I guess to be perfectly honest -- Should I be honest?
Me: Yeah! Of course you should be honest!
Yvonne: I've noticed it's a little bit of a fetish type thing. Beards and lumberjacks -- it's a fetish.
Me: How widespread do you think the fetish is?
Yvonne: Well, I started the blog a couple months ago but I have 100 followers. I cannot believe that they've all found it and caught on and shared their blog with their friends, so I think over time it will gain readers eventually. I'm not really doing it for anyone else other than myself and the few women who are following it. It's fun. You should keep rocking your beard. It's awesome.
Me: Aww thank you.
