a spate of confusing articles in the Washington Post in which women are excoriated or given back handed compliments or ignored or told that they should think twice before doing things like going ice rock climbing, I must say this:
It's embarrassing that we have to sit around and figure out if women are as smart or smarter than men or if men are as good or better than women.
These arguments are lame.
I know for a fact that I like smart people; I like to date smart men and I like smart men who like to date smart women, and if that woman happens to be me, super.
But at the same time, if you want to date a woman or man who is not as smart as you are (or smarter than you are) good for you! If you want to date someone who is half your age plus seven, fabulous.
