Nicely put Marcus. At least Lacy has provided you with a perfect lede for your editorial.

Marcus, you are many objectionable things, but a sexist is definitely not one of them :)

The phrase man-crush (or my favorite, bro-mance) is such a gender-driven phrase that it's funny to see its author so sensitive to gender distinctions. Why does either need a gender distinguisher, except to say that there is something decidedly (and again, strangely) nonsexual in one specific type of same-gender relationship? The whole thing smacks of headache-inducing political correctness--had you used better words, apparently, the idea would have stood fine?

Either way, the much more important thing: congratulations on getting your review published!

Just read through you and Lacy's exchanges on your respective blogs, and it actually looks like you really resolved things well. Different points of view, but hey, we're all sensitive about our writing, and how it is received, I guess. Thank god I'VE never gone off the handle writing on anyone's blog :)

Hi Marcus,
I prefer the company of women too! :)

Every once in a while though I do need some bro-mance (love that)

You should check out the book's reviews on Amazon.com, just for fun.
