There are 4 stages of the ‘sickness.’
My sense of fashion isn't what you'd call trendsetting. But somewhere along the line, I seem to have missed the notice that a lot of other men seemed to have received. The notice that seems to have them convinced that skinny (or super-skinny, *shudder*) jeans are perfect for them.

It is easy enough to start calling a fireman a fire-fighter and a policeman a police officer but when I referred to the dictionary, I found that there is a long list of words just waiting to be stripped of “man” as a prefix or a suffix. However, what bothered me most was the word woman.

So, I decided to investigate the beard's new-found stardom. Okay, let me rephrase that: the beard's hero-worship on the interweb. I'm talking about the kind of devotion that has made headlines like '...
I have often seen my male friends dating a so-called modern, "racy" girl. But when it comes to marrying that girl of their choice, whose virginity perhaps they have taken, they back out. Instead, in their own words, they'd like to marry a girl who is "pure", where purity is synonymous with an intact hymen.

Indra Nooyi, chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, has this to say of women: They tend to accept constructive criticism better if it is coming from a man. Nooyi, who reportedly spent so much time at work that...
Frankly, I don't blame men who can't differentiate cumin powder from coriander and don't know where the spoons are kept in the kitchen. I blame the women in their lives who insist on treating them like babies incapable of taking care of themselves. Why else would a wife who leaves for a month-long vacation at her parents' slog for weeks to cook and freeze meals for her dear husband?

They purposely disorient the bulls by force-feeding them alcohol; twist and bite their tails; stab and jab them with sickles, spears, knives and sticks; cause them intense pain by yanking their nose ropes; and punch, jump on and drag them to the ground. What is fair, let alone remotely masculine, about this deliberate weakening of animals? It's disgusting and shameful, not macho in the slightest.
The Hulk was stirring next to me. I cast an uneasy glance towards where he sat, sprawled back in a leather recliner, hands hanging over the sides of the seat. The green goop on his face was trickling down his neck and his mouth was slightly open. Everywhere I looked, there was an abundance of brawn.
He recently got out of a relationship (that's a red flag.) and though it's only been two months, the ex-boyfriend and him talk from time to time (that's another red flag.). It's okay though, he says, as I frown in surprise - he's only asked me to sleep with him once ever since. (And another one.)

Gender equality is a wonderful idea. I say 'idea', because despite all the debate, discussion and outrage about the topic of sexual violence in India, we have accomplished little in terms of identifying solutions to fighting sexual violence.
The Scopophile is not a voyeur in the plainly sexual sense. He is a voyeur of cultures, a wannabe Indiana Jones, a scholar (sometimes a pseudo-scholar), adept at conversations on books, art, and film. He is an anthropologist, historian, linguist and very, very often, a doctoral student. He is also self-obsessed, somewhat agnostic, myopic, a misogynist unaware, and actively political. He is a straight white man from the suburbs who has spent between three months and a year in some non-Western part of the world... And he is a self-titled expert on that country.
