Misandry of the day

A somewhat odd story, but with an all-too-familiar punchline:

Wisconsin Snuggle House shutters after city fears prostitution, sexual assault

And the punchline:

“There’s no way that (sexual assault) will not happen,” assistant city attorney Jennifer Zilavy said. “No offense to men, but I don’t know any man who wants to just snuggle.” [emphasis added]

No offense?  Really?  We’re just supposed to nod and agree when a female accuses us all of being rapists, right?  A government official with prosecutorial powers, no less?  Who is she kidding?

Link repository

I needed a convenient spot to stash links to blogs that I read regularly, someplace that’s accessible with a browser, without necessarily having to log in.  So, this is it.  I’m stashing stuff over in the sidebar.

Who knows if I’ll ever start posting actual posts.  10 years ago I was quite interested in online interactions with people, and blogged quite a bit over on Blogger in relation to the 2004 elections.  But over time, I grew less and less interested in that, and nowadays I tend to just lurk.
