Am I the only one who found this article (about the "man date", an outing between two men defined more by its exclusions than anything else) tenuous? Reading it over, I couldn't figure out why it was written, let alone given such prominent placement in the NYT Sunday Style section. Thankfully, a quick look at the Forum page yielded this quote from a reader: "The article is either a pathetic attempt at trend spotting/naming ala 'metrosexual,' or sexualizing every last interaction."
Yeah, that's it.
Apparently, I wasn't the only one, going by these letter.
