There’s a lot of rancor on the Internet, much of it centering around social justice, race, relations and equality between men and women, sexual identity, and religion. So when someone finds a way to express frustration and drive a serious point home with good-natured humor, it tends to bring down the defenses and get people listening, talking, and maybe absorbing the point in a way that doesn’t leave them feeling impaled on it.
Normally, I’d advise against reading the comments section on many news articles, opinion pieces, or public Facebook posts, but this one’s been delightful, so far – largely because it’s got both men and women participating, and everyone’s in on the joke. It hasn’t degenerated into trollish, humorless, bitter, ill will towards anyone.
Oh, sure. Give it time. But for now, enjoy!
