As we've recently noted, Dilbert creator Scott Adams has what we'll gently call a "skewed" perspective on sex, gender, rape, race — all that jazz. After a decent handful of websites (this one included) took issue with a recent post on Adams' blog — he posited that rape and other such offenses were the result of men's natural instincts gone awry — Adams declared all dissenters to be victims of LRC (low reading comprehension). Nobody really got him. And so he challenged someone from any one of those critical sites to submit to an email interview with him.
Oh, we are so in.
I offered Scott the chance to interview our writer Irin Carmon as a representative of Jezebel, and he's game. But we've been warned: Adams declares that this "will not turn out well" for any interviewee. Because with the strength of his own arguments and logic, he will doodle us into silence, you see.
The first exchange has already been posted (his response complained about Irin being "wordy"), but given the nature of the email back-and-forth, we anticipate this interview will go on for a few days. And as much as it pains me to suggest that you bookmark Adams' blog, you might want to do so for this special occasion.
And we'll do our best not to let our cripplingly low reading comprehension get in the way of the discussion.
Update: Adams' original post has been updated with a second round.
