Chatting with Michelle in ICQ yesterday, and she warned me off looking up life expectancy stats. Should'a listened to her.
Of course, she also said I should take it as a compliment that several people blow through the site, look at the subject matter, and decide I'm a she. And then notice the disturbing obsessions, slap their virtual forehead. . . and decide I'm a dyke.
I'm not going for the genderfuck anymore, people.
(Ignore the entries in the links list with the words "dyke" or "lesbian" in them, which could explain some of the confusion. I'm riffing, and facts have nothing to do with it.)
I'm gonna figure part of the confusion here is that I come off as a feminist, which is silly, because whenever a man says "I'm a feminist," he's leaving off the second part of the sentence, ". . . if it helps me get in your knickers."
Slightly more seriously, I'm not sure men have the right to declare themselves feminists. Or rather, although they have the right to declare themselves anything they damn well please, if they can really make an accurate assessment. . . ok, this is the pre-coffee syntax again.
Guess I could do a second poll, "Is I a feminist? Ain't I not a woman?" But people are still voting on the first one, and the results might argue against doing so, if The Stupid stays in first place.
I'm also not sure anyone can accurately judge how funny they are, as opposed to how funny they think they are. But I'd hardly call myself humorless.
Is I humorless?
If you think so, please note your race and gender, as I have a feeling this demographic info might lead to an obvious conclusion. Which you'll miss the point of completely, cracka.
Specifically, boy cracka, but I'm speculating here.
Update: Come t'think of it, I've noticed that when conservative guys describe feminists as humorless -- and generally as dykes -- it's because a) the woman in question doesn't find their sexist jokes funny, particularly as they're delivered while the guy is refusing to make eye contact, preferring to stare at her tits and b) the guy has zero chance of getting in her knickers.
Perhaps this applies to Phyllis Schlafly, too?
