Another blogger suggested that I submit some of my posts to Boomer Girl. It’s not as far fetched as it sounds because they have a section called the Men’s Room. Clever name.
I explained about a series of encouraging emails for just such a proposition. But it all came to a screeching halt once the site had won an award from Editor and Publisher, the trade magazine for newspapers. BoomerGirl.com is affiliated with the Lawrence, Kansas newspaper.
Good for them.
Except for this.
Here is their top Men’s Room blog post today.
Wear ascots for a feeling of freedom, a dash of individuality.
Columbia, S.C. — One would assume that an inaugural gathering would be an odd choice for a man to make a fashion statement.
But political consultant Jeffrey Sewell picked an accessory – a handmade necktie – that made him stand out like a Democratic-voting usher at a Republican convention.
He wore an ascot to Gov. Mark Sanford’s second inauguration bash in January.
Turns out, this isn’t a blogger, it’s a syndicated newspaper columnist writing from South Carolina.
Wear an ascot. In Kansas. Or South Carolina. Ohio. Wyoming. New York. New Mexico. You will be mercilessly teased by friends, and laughed at behind your back by others, perhaps even shot at!
Here are the states where I think you could wear an ascot safely.
- Rhode Island
That’s it. I’m sure there are cities in other states where they have enough weird dressers that where you wouldn’t get your lips punched off. As far as states? That’s the whole list.
please don’t wear an ascot. At least not when other men are around. We’re real bad at stifling laughter. Once we start we point too, because we love to share a good laugh.
There isn’t a blogger on Boomer Girl who be seen in public with a guy wearing an ascot. They would rather be shot in a spot where they squat to pass a clot over the pot. Ask them. Take a poll.
Boomer Girl? Close down the Men’s Room:
- You are faking blogging by using newspaper columnists.
- You use irrelevent material.
- The real male bloggers you have are lazy.
