OUTRAGE: People Are In A Tizzy Because Guys Don’t Like Female TV Shows Like ‘Sex And The City’
A good boyfriend or husband will watch a few female-oriented TV shows for the sake of their girlfriend or wife because A.) You’re not some Neanderthal who believes that men control the remote control because they have a penis, B.) Your sacrifice will compel her to watch a Knicks game when they’re eight games out of the playoffs or a World War II documentary about the V-2 Rocket and C.) Your ladyfriend is much more inclined to engage in sexual activity if she feels a bond with you because you just watched a Housewives of Beverly Hills marathon (I’m so Team Vanderpump, and Yolanda is absolutely playing up her illness for empathy). However, apparently some people are not happy that men are giving their honest opinions of these shows.
The number-crunchers over at FiveThirtyEight released an article titled “Men Are Sabotaging The Online Reviews Of TV Shows Aimed At Women.” In the article they present an argument that awful men are purposely leaving bad reviews of female-oriented TV shows.
Guys are dicks. This isn’t exactly breaking news or discovering all 26 dimensions of the bosonic string theory. They’re leaving plenty of bad reviews of everything from condoms to sunshine.
Are men voting negatively on these television programs because they feel threatened by them or because they indeed suck wrinkly donkey balls?
Know what I deduct from this graph? Women are either lazy or don’t love their shows enough to put in the time and effort to let the world know how fantastic their favorite shows are. Whereas men are passionate about their television programs and aren’t afraid to put their opinions out there to be judged.
