Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Given the tenor the comment thread is taking, I think the points made in this article are relevant: Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds (05.27.14)
So, a question, to my fellow male nerds:

What the fuck is wrong with us?

...

We are not the lovable nerdy protagonist who's lovable because he's the protagonist. We're not guaranteed to get laid by the hot chick of our dreams as long as we work hard enough at it. There isn't a team of writers or a studio audience pulling for us to triumph by "getting the girl" in the end. And when our clever ruses and schemes to "get girls" fail, it's not because the girls are too stupid or too bitchy or too shallow to play by those unwritten rules we've absorbed.

Also, this is mostly a male comment thread.

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
