Musings from outside the mainstream.
Dear Abby, Ann Landers, Carolyn Hax, Miss Manners and Dan Savage. Hmm, which one doesn’t belong?
I jest. We know. Dan writes about a different sort of relationship, and he fills a void, so to speak. The others are all women advice columnists, of course. And they write about relationships. A majority of the time I think their advice is fine. Sometimes they miss, but don’t we all? However, sometimes they just don’t see or represent the male perspective on relationship.
Nobody Writes Me Letters is a column on relationship written from the masculine perspective. It’s an experiment, but also a vehicle to actively shape masculine concerns in a modern age. Specifically avoiding being reactionary (to feminism), I hope to help create a cohesive language and set of terms to shape masculine issues and communicate them effectively to be heard and acknowledged (much as feminism has done for women).
