Every day I thank Athena for The Sexist - I have to put it on my blogroll soon.
In this not very recent post (I was reviewing their archives) Amanda Hess had some interesting things to say about the cluelessness of art historians - not getting that "The Proposition" is about some overly-facial-haired guy trying to get some embroderer to turn hoe for him. Ah yes - that takes me back to my days in art school.
But the best part of the post was one comment:
Can’t a guy buy some needlepoint in a dingy pub anymore?It's funniest if you read the whole post and other comments first.
