Last week, an American screenwriter named Tad Safran claimed that unlike American females, British women simply do not take care of themselves. "When British women get to the age where they have to make an effort, they appear unable, or uninterested, in rising to the challenge," he wrote for the Times of London. This week, Tad returns with another column, in which he states, quite accurately, "I'm never getting laid in Britain ever again." He explains that his article "exploded into a national furor" and the Guardian named him Sexist of the Year. But Tad has no regrets! He says that many of the comments his piece prompted were from women who pointed out that "they'd rather be frumpy with wonderful personalities than Barbie dolls with nothing between their ears." His take? "This argument is so patently absurd that I can hardly believe it."
