“The Tragic Ineptitude of the English Male.” A rather nasty article. What do you English bloggers say about this?
Update, June 2008: Almost six years later, this old throwaway weblog entry seems to be enjoying some measure of search engine popularity on the news that McLaren has written up a screenplay for a Canadian TV show on the topic. I failed to opine on McLaren’s musings back in 2002, so I should probably throw in my two pence now: her experience was anecdotal, her arguments were made from fictional media, and little of what she wrote was of any worth. The upcoming TV show will probably be similarly unfair, which means it should be quite funny.
“It’s kind of like Sex in the City meets Bridget Jones.”
Or maybe not.
