Girls Rule the Blogosphere, says NYT

Uhm, what the hell? This post by the New York Times- yes, go read it, I'll wait- implies that people should be surprised by the fact that more teenage girls blog than boys. Since when are all computer users male? Since when do females not have free range over the internet, just as males do? Blegh.

The phrases the author uses even annoy me. Here are a few:

"This 'girls rule' trend..."
"'Girls are trained to make stories about themselves,'"
"From a young age they learn that they are objects,"
"'This would be called the feminization of the Internet,'"
"'Boys... engage in ways that aren’t confessional, that aren’t emotional.'"
"'The girls are much more into putting something up and getting responses.'"

What the fuck? Plenty of guys blog. Here's a starter list:

There. There's four I follow. Now, go visit them and tell me they're just as funny as I am. (But not funnier, because that would offend me, haha.)


  1. If you're directing that toward the article, then yes, that was my reaction, too.

  2. That was funny!

    "But not funnier" :P

  3. Some people are so sterotypical. I think alot of people think that only girls run websites or blogs. How lame.

    Cool blog btw, and your totally funny! lol. I'm new to this whole blogging thing and I share a blog with my friend. (: Your blogs great.

  4. Aww, thank you! I'll be sure to check out your blog, btw.
