So, a post gender normative man walks into a bar…

August 13, 2011 § Leave a comment

I came across this great McSweeney’s essay entitled “A Post Gender Normative Man Tries to Pick Up a Woman at a Bar.” It is a really funny piece, and even though I am not happy that the female character rejects the male character’s advances (thereby “rejecting” [his] feminism), I enjoyed reading the male’s gender-neutral dialogue. I long for the day when this equality, this gender neutrality– in a less extreme form– is considered normal.
