Mine says: authorlauralee.tumblr.com is probably written by a male somewhere between 66-100 years old. The writing style is personal and happy most of the time.
Apart from the age (between 66-100?) I’ve heard this before. The copy editor of my last book kept referring to the author (me) in the margins as “he.” I also tend to be called “British author Laura Lee” in reviews a lot. If you’re happy and you know it…
Now I’m wondering if my other blog is written by a “man” too.
My other blog is even more manly. author-laura-lee.blogspot.com is the 437th most manly blog of 7834 ranked. That’s pretty testosterone-ish. It is also “academic” and “upset.” You’re probably better off over here with the nice me.
brainpicker.tumblr.com is probably written by a female somewhere between 66-100 years old. The writing style is personal and upset most of the time.
For the men who are part of the Good Men Project—guys fighting wars in foreign lands, working diligently to be good dads, recovering from economic hardship, striving to be loving spouses, searching their souls trying to figure out what it means to be a good man—the piece is one more example of mainstream media portraying us in an egregiously negative, quasi-sexist light.
Not sure why he uses the term “quasi-sexist.” It is blatantly sexist.
