A funny thing happened yesterday. I gave men the ‘day off’ and posted about hairdo’s, skin care, fashion and jewelry. And what do you think happened? I got tons of feedback from men! Comments, re-Tweets, Likes, what have you. Which really got me thinking.
Did they all read the blog because there are more metro-sexuals out there than I thought? Are they genuinely interested in hair, make-up, and the like? Is it mysterious to them, and they want to know all of our girlie secrets? OR — and maybe I’m going out on a limb here — did I get so much male readership because I kind of told them NOT to read?
You see where I’m going here? I know my man, my Richie Coldcuts, has a tad of that don’t-tell-me-I-can’t-do-something bluster in his make-up. And I thought it was an Italian thing. But maybe it’s a Mars / Venus thing. Perhaps I’ll title next Wednesday’s column “For Ladies Only: No Men allowed”. Richie Coldcuts calls that kind of thing ‘I am woman, hear me roar’, which he says is the female version of the ‘he-man woman-haters club’ from the Little Rascals (you millenials and gen-X’ers please forgive me). But it will be very telling to see if the same phenomenon occurs next week. What do you think ladies? Let me know!
