New Study, Also Everyone You Know: Dudes Lie When They Feel Weak

Dudes like to feel like dudes, and some would argue, they need to feel like dudes—or else. So the surest route to provoking a certain sort of dude to dude out is to question his dudeness in any way. It’s a truth as old as time and as obvious as its passing, but now, a very validating study has backed up the truth of… » 6/28/15 11:15am 6/28/15 11:15am

Science Has Finally Discovered Why Men Exist

If you’ve ever wondered why the world hasn’t yet discovered a way for women to self-reproduce, eliminating men forever and becoming the feminist paradise that every men’s rights activist fears (but is also kind of secretly excited by, am I right?), science now has a reason. Simmer down, dudes, you’re not going… » 5/18/15 9:00pm 5/18/15 9:00pm

'All Male Panels' Tumblr Reveals Lack Of Women in Yet Another Place

While there are the obvious industries and outlets that put women in the minority, if at all (congressional seats, music festival headliners, everything), some patterns are not as crystal clear until you see them put them together.

Grown Man Finds Most Embarrassing Possible Use of His Time

Over at Esquire, Stephen Marche—who you may remember from that time he described one single Megan Fox eyebrow as “the sublime, a force of nature, the patterns of waves crisscrossing a lake, snow avalanching down the side of a mountain, an elaborately camouflaged butterfly”—did a great thing by getting a nine-year-old… » 5/05/15 11:00am 5/05/15 11:00am
