    I don’t know whether to be outraged or insulted: I can’t think of any either.

    What were we talking about, again?

    Well, there’s me, but I’m a little girly, so I don’t know if I count.

    Thanks, Palmer. I’ll check it out.

    And for the record I’m being incredibly sarcastic.

    Ryan: It’s people like you who manage to convince the rest of the world that dudes have no sense of humor.

    Which is a real shame, since you’re pretty plainly not representative.

    Holy shit, Shelley. What the fuck happened to KD?

    hmmm…I don’t think there are any dude bloggers. I guess they just aren’t interested in important shit.

    For the record, Lauren, I knew you were joking.

    Well, there are at least two here, IIRC. I also have Buzz, George in Denver, Mikerzz, Jack, Walter, and Craig. I apologize if you already have these guys, or if their blogging style is not what you’re looking for, but you did say that content doesn’t matter. :)

    Like I said at Twisty’s,

    WTF is going on? Your site, this Australian guy, PZ Myers, Kevin Drum (again, le sigh), I had a troll at my place (who I played ban-ip-spoof-ip with for a while, but I deleted all but his first three comments b/c I’m a bitch like that)….

    Was there some kind of action alert sent out to the International Order of Assholes this weekend or something?

    I just checked, and sure enough I’ve got external gonads. Huh, who woulda thunk? And oddly enough, someone with your exact name and URL posts comments on my blog all the time.

    So, if you feel like reading it, take a look at: Hope you’re having a good Sunday. And if you feel up for some karaoke, DJ the KJ is at the Linwood Tavern tonight from 8p-12a.

    External gonads? Eww, ick. I keep mine tucked away neatly in an elegant pouch, I’ll have you know.

    Is the only qualification for this recommendation that the blogger is, for all intents and purposes, a man? Is there supposed to be a definite spectrum of content or anything?

    PZ, if a scrotum is your idea of what constitutes elegance, then I want someone else to decorate the gym for the class reunion. Just sayin’.

    Can’t load the linked pages. I think you just Slashdotted poor KD, Lauren.

    Apparently, I’m a dude, since dudes are all unemotional, hate shopping, and are good at tests and shit. I double checked and I still have the vagina, but the overwhelming anti-shopping, pro-standardized tests demonstrates that actual sex aside, I’m a dude. What to do?

  20. Amanda
    Amanda July 10, 2005 at 9:59 pm |

    All kidding aside, my co-blogger appears to be a man. Put him in the good boys column. Alongside Chris, PZ, and Ross.

    You’ve out-duded me. Except for external genitalia and secondary sexual organs, but I’m still crossing my fingers that I’ll turn out to be more punk than you. Anyway.

    I’ve been meaning to comment on the math-shirt thing that you cross posted on LA. I thought back to all the female math profs that I’d had and realized that they’d be much better mathematicians if they’d just get uglier.

    Brief Holiday

    Crazy boyfriend bought spur-of-the-moment tickets to come see me (bless you, Southwest Airlines). Gets in tomorrow. Blogging will be light. And naturally the carpet needs vacuuming and the bathroom needs cleaning and the cat box, we’re just not discus…

    Are dudes allowed to have blogs? They usually don’t do well in English classes. Let me know if you find one.

    C’mon, Chris, imagine the alternative. Without a scrotum, you’d have a pair of pink ovoids dangling by their epididymi–very uncool. Embryonically, it’s derived from the same tissue as the female labia, and you probably aren’t going to diss labia. Are you some kind of sexist? Support all gender-differentiated tissue!

    Like I’ve said before, I tend to think of myself as a cultural lesbian… does being a wanna be lesbian discount my gonads?

    Embryonically, it’s derived from the same tissue as the female labia, and you probably aren’t going to diss labia.

    Embryonically, the pancreas and the liver are derived from the same tissue, but I’m not about to go into a deli and order a plate of chopped chicken pancreas.

    Hey, there’s nothing wrong with men not being interested in blogging. I mean, wouldn’t it be a boring world if everyone liked the same things? They just have other things they’d rather do, like taking out the trash and mowing the lawn. I think men might actually be smarter not to waste their time on these windy intellectual debates.

    randomliberal/Robert July 11, 2005 at 1:19 pm |

    Well, there is my blog. But it doesn’t get updated very much, because the idiot external-gonad-having creature who runs the thing is a) very disorganized and b) doesn’t like to blog about the same stuff everyone else blogs about, and is too lazy to do independent research very often.

    And yes, Robert is talking about himself in the 3rd person. He also appears to have used a run-on sentence in the previous paragraph. His X chromosome guarantees that he will suck at English; he apologizes for it.

    I’m actually an ethereal being with immense powers from slightly after the beginning of time, but I’m presently making use of a male human form, and Tolkien gave me a masculine persona.

    A call for dude bloggers?

    *scratches head*

    Um …well, there is this one, but I’m not all that sure whether it is a guy. What guy would have a pink blog?

  40. TimT
    TimT July 11, 2005 at 7:22 pm |

    OH! You’re being sarcastic?

    But wait a minute… are you being sarcastic or non-sarcastic when you say you’re being sarcastic?

    Oh, I’m just so incredibly confused!

    If you mean “dude” as in “hot guy” bloggers, I’d like to know what you find out…

    I don’t know what you are talking about, Lauren. There’s no such thing as men or women on the internet. It’s a totally gender/color/class-blind safe place, and no one knows or cares whether you are normal, black, female, or poor.

    Biology might be something to brush up on; you meant your Y chromosome, no? :)

    Dude bloggers, let’s see (scratches head). Well, other than my husband, I guess I can think of a couple:,, and then has one XY among its two bloggers. Guy bloggers don’t blog as much about politics as we do, though; if you look at the latest posts in the blogs I suggested, you’ll see a lot of stuff about pipe smoking, football, and how long you have to wait to get food. Still, they’re not bad bloggers, for dudes.

    Hi. I am a guy. Now that we’ve met, can you get me a beer from the fridge?

    Rammer, we don’t drink beer. But I can hook you up with a nice daquiri. Umbrella?

    As usual I’m a little slow at following up on this thread. I’m nominally a guy, dude, male, man, etc. I’ll volunteer for whatever this is about. I was once the only man in a feminist editorial collective publishing my college’s newspaper.

    Q:- What does a man do in a feminist collective?
    A: Makes coffee.

    That’s a joke but my innate male curiosity is piqued…
