Within a month of revealing his relationship with Taylor Swift, a well-sculpted bore from the United Kingdom posed in his underwear in a high-profile photo shoot. I’m talking about Tom Hiddleston, yes, but he’s not the only one.
Another day, another troll: today a boring man was allowed to publish a think piece about not-boring musician Sky Ferreira that began by discussing her “killer tits,” as seen on her last album cover, and comparing her cup size to Madonna’s (in a deeply uninspired collation he carried out ‘til the very end).
For your consideration, from the last week: the Washington Post’s “A shocking number of college men surveyed admit coercing a partner into sex,” and the Wall Street Journal’s “Women are more interested in sex than you think, studies show.” Why were these headlines—and the articles that followed—addressed to men?
Today, an ad started widely circulating on Twitter, purportedly from the Clinton campaign, featuring a tatted up, gelled, almost harassingly bearded man. “I’m man enough to vote for a woman...” it reads. “Are you?” The Clinton campaign confirms to Jezebel that this is not a real ad. Come on, guys.
I wasn’t planning to poke his boner. But as I sat beside my boyfriend, watching Blood Simple, I could feel what was coming. Frances McDormand was on screen, scantily clad.

On Sunday night, a Memphis man opened fire on a woman and her three year-old daughter after she refused his advances. The girl was hit multiple times, and is now in the hospital in “extremely critical condition.”
A few weeks ago Matt McGorry, actor and male feminist du jour, shared a photo of himself crying. “Who needs bravado when you’ve got vulnerability? Being a ‘real man’ is being true to yourself,” McGorry wrote in the accompanying tweet. Hashtagged #FindYourMagic, McGorry’s tears were manufactured for a new Axe campaign.
Donald Trump, a man whose misogyny knows no bounds, thinks that Hillary Clinton’s controversial remarks about handling men “going off the reservation” are “very demeaning” to men.

Alexander Skarsård, a man, is starring in the title role of a new Tarzan remake coming this summer. To prepare, he beat his abs in a bowl of hot water with yeast, four eggs, sugar, and salt, then added flour, then kneaded, then mixed ‘em up with a dough hook, then put that on a floured surface and kneaded more, then…
A California man with a beautiful heart and so-so climbing skills needed to be rescued off a ledge Thursday morning after his idea for a creative proposal hit a few unexpected snags, and I suddenly understand straight people less than I did before.
Today, men’s favorite ages on OkCupid are 20, 21, 22, and 23, but ever since fire was invented to see each other with, stunningly average men have believed they deserve that perfect 10.

Last Saturday, Gay Talese was speaking at a conference at Boston University. When the octogenarian nonfiction legend was asked about women writers who had inspired him, he replied, “I didn’t know any women writers that I loved.”
The signifiers of upper middle class, white male midlife crisis have shifted across the past few generations with a lava-slow determination, time and culture churning on itself and ossifying into a whole new level of hell.

It’s not a trick question: There’s a piece in the New York Times about aging single men in their 30s and 40s who are finally ready to settle down, but bummed that it takes actual effort and stuff. What shall we do here? A round of sympathy drinks? Or a heartless, sarcastic boo-hoo?
