    You may know it as the tab open in your browser, right next to all the work you’ve been meaning to do. Or the place where you have an inappropriately large ┬ádatabase of food porn, home goods, and your next seven wedding dresses.

    The world knows it as Pinterest: leading cause of estrogen-induced comas since March 2010.

    Now, I don’t think there is any arguing over the general composition of the pinning population. Bitches love to pin. I pin my dogs, I pin my food, I pin other people’s babies, and boy, do I pin the shit out of Matthew Fox. God, if only that was as sexual as it sounds.

    Up until recently, Pinterest felt much like a treehouse. Secluded enough to drool over a picture of bacon in peace, and with no boys allowed. In fact, men even created their own separate treehouse called “manteresting,” where they could boast about all the work benches and weight sets they love and leave our damned bridal gowns alone.

    But as I’ve learned the hard way, men don’t know how to stay in their own fucking treehouse.

    One would think a real man would shun the act of pinning, save for against a wall. After all, what kind of brawny man out there is repinning my tutorial on velcro rollers? or a knitting pattern?

    But alas, the pin men are coming.

    Oh, pin man. Where art thy brawn? and balls? How hast thou come to such a level where thy pins cloggeth up my facebook feed?

    Okay, I guess I can understand to a certain extent. You want to look at the cupcakes and travel spots too, I get it.

    But I implore you: respect the feminine sanctity of Pinterest. Please no deer gutting tutorials. Please.

      Ok, here’s my thing on the Pinterest for men phenomenon. HELLO, it’s genius!!! You can follow your girlfriend or wife or sister or mom or whatever and it totally takes the guesswork out of buying presents. I mean, geez I might even start a board just for “things I want you (insert male of the month here) to buy for me” I can put my size in the description. I’ve had very few men in my life that are good at buying presents for me (although the one now did randomly buy me shoes 3 weeks into dating him – WINNER), so I’m all for the boys getting on board (nice, pun right?).

        Hahahha, I never thought of it that way! How brilliant!!! A subtle but direct method to drop hints. Love it. Maybe this pin men thing isn’t so bad after all….

      I hate Pinterest with a passion. Eh.

      So, another thing I hate is not being able to follow WordPress.org sites like dot com sites. Makes no sense, pisses me off, and inconveniences me (not your fault). And to top it all off, I’m not getting email notifications of your posts. Don’t let this go to your head, but yours is one of the few blogs I follow that I actually enjoy following. I’ll resubmit my email request again to see if that works. Oh, ridiculously fantastic hair – your author pic.

      Je t’adore,
