    That article on masculinity in sports was awesome. I particularly like this piece:

    “After all, if it’s culturally acceptable for Tiger Woods to be vilified for infidelity, shouldn’t we expect supportive men to take paternity leave to be with their wives and children? Especially baseball and basketball players, whose seasons keep them away from their families for long stretches? Is it not hypocritical of us to demand that athletes respect marriage vows and their families, but then not want those athletes to take time off during such an important time? If we don’t want boys to be boys, then should there not be mechanisms in place for men to be men?”
