I offer Violent Acres’ latest post as evidence that “she” is actually a man. The style of writing, the topical choices, the voice – all point very convincingly in that direction. There’s not a woman alive – and almost no men – who could talk to a restaurant hostess and not notice she was 100 lbs overweight. And only a man would make up something like that and expect it to be believed.
In the midst of all the recent blog-buzz created by Violent Acres, I first suggested it a few days ago over at Ben’s blog. But now, I’m more certain than ever.
First, I’d like to say that I agree with Violent Acres much of the time, and think that he/she has said some things that need to be said. A side-splitting and harshly accurate example might be the recent piece, Shape of a Divorce.
The writing is decent and many of the points (especially the financial ones) are well thought out, but with all the talk about deadbeat dad myths, kicking ass at work and with money, jokes about retarded children, and making it to the top of Digg and Technorati – I’m sorry, but that’s how men talk.
In the words of ol’ Max Cady, “come out, come out, wherever you are…”
