Writing with the dudes…

Alright, so I’ve just submitted my recent post about creepy dolls to a site called Dude Write. It’s a new initiative to bring men in the blogosphere together into a sort of “Gentlemen’s Club”.

Except for it’s more like throwing the blogging men into a glass cage where we battle each other to the death while the rest of you watch. Except it’s not really a battle to the death and there’s no cage of any sort. OK, I’m pretty shitty at explaining this!

Here’s what happens: each dude submits one post of his into the weekly line up. All men read each other’s entries and then vote to pick the weekly winner. The winner gets fame, women and inordinate amounts of money. Then he wakes up and realises that all he actually got were some bragging rights and a fancy-ish banner to put on his site.

“OK, nobody told me there was going to be a heart and ‘victor’ isn’t even spelt correctly. What a joke!”

Anyways, I thought this would be a pretty cool opportunity to meet some fellow male bloggers. The premise of the Dude Write site is that the blogosphere is dominated by women. Judging from the ratio of women to men following and commenting on my blog, I tend to agree with that evaluation.

Take it easy, nobody said it was a bad thing. I like all my followers, regardless of their gender. So there’s no need to yell “sexism” and throw stuff at me, especially since I can’t see or hear you and throwing stuff at your computer will mess up your screen.

What about you? Do you agree? Are women running the blogging show? Is taking over the blogosphere just the first step in their elaborate world domination scheme ? Are men’s days of freedom numbered? Will all of us get shipped off into the giant underground forced labour camps women are building worldwide as we speak? Have I finally snapped and gone completely insane?

    •  @dianasschwenk Actually the mere fact that we find it necessary to create our own exclusive “Dude” clubs should give you a good indication of how “secure” we are in our dominance. We know what you’re up to and we’re terrified. Now that I think about it – the creepy dolls I was writing about have probably been invented by women to wage psychological warfare on mankind! 😉

  1. So does being the weekly winner grant you alpha-male status? Maybe that’s why there are more women bloggers. The alpha-male bloggers have devoured all of the beta-male bloggers. Such is the dog-eat-dog style in Y-chromosome land, right? Or maybe I’m confusing men with wolves. I always get the two confused…

    @NestExpressed So yes, there should be a place for Guy bonding in a sea of women’s yak yak and trauma and tsunami of feeeelings.

    @NestExpressed Women generally more verbal than men. “What are you thinking” makes men cringe. Proven we use more words to describe things.

      @mimetska Marshmallows are delicious, so bring those on! Pamela Lee isn’t very aerodynamic though, so you may require some help with her!

        @NestExpressed Do you want the whole s’mores experience or just the marshmallows? Mini or jumbo?

        @NestExpressed S’mores require camping fires for proper roasting. Since a large area of my state is on fire, I suggest you come here.

        @NestExpressed Don’t forget the added bonus of melty chocolate and graham crackers. And a really bigass fireshow.
