Is God male or woman? Why do ladies, yet no longer males, flush public bathrooms with their ft? Why are males, yet no longer girls, enthusiastic about parallel parking? Why do ladies, yet now not males, go away eleven-minute messages on answering machines? Why do males suppose to blame approximately not anything, and girls consider to blame approximately every thing? was once Marilyn Monroe...fat?
These philosophical quandaries, and extra, are ultimately debated in I'm with Stupid, an uproariously humorous discussion among Gene Weingarten, the gleefully misogynistic Washington Post humor columnist, and Gina Barreca, the gleefully feminist collage of Connecticut professor.
The first major e-book approximately women and men really written via a guy and a lady, I'm with Stupid is aware about the darkish secrets and techniques of either sexes. It's now not a lecture, yet a longer argument, a combustion of viewpoints that lands up unearthing startling truths. within the phrases of Gene and Gina: "Our Mars and Venus breach their orbits and collide in a screaming fireball from Hell."
The material spans paintings and expression, technology and expertise, politics and background, spirituality and faith, intercourse and sexuality, in addition to the advanced etiology, sociology, and etymology of soiled jokes. males: study ultimately the best way to be aware of needless to say while you are having a struggle. ladies: examine what he rather potential whilst he says "I'm sorry." Take aspects as Gene and Gina face off in a haggling problem within which the winner manages to get the bottom cost for a Mercedes S500. or simply soak up the show.
I'm with Stupid is the e-book that eventually establishes, conclusively, that ladies are funnier than males. And vice versa.

I’m with Stupid / 17 2 It’s Not Merely Amusing— It’s Historical GENE: Men are, and have always been, the principal architects of history. GINA: Agreed. But— GENE: No, allow me. Women’s comparative insigniﬁcance as major players in the advance of civilization is the result of their virtual enslavement over thousands of years by the rigors and restrictions of their biological responsibilities. Though requiring enormous fortitude and emotional strength, this role remained subordinate, a condition perpetuated by men, who actively prevented women from achieving even a semblance of economic independence, political enfranchisement, social parity, or even literacy.
GENE: I’m trying to parse that last response of yours. I am trying to ﬁgure out how you veered from point A to point B. GINA: See, a woman would have no trouble with this. It is not veering, it is dancing. Men hate to dance. This is the difference between the male and female senses of humor. When a woman tells you she has something funny to tell you, if you’re smart you pull up a chair and reach for a Diet Coke. You’re there for the duration. The story sashays from point to point. There are sometimes footnotes.
GINA: Hemingway is the premature ejaculator of American literature. GENE: That’s cold. GINA: Thank you. The fact is, the differences between male and female writing are enormous. They involve language, character depth, subject matter, even titles. No woman would ever write a book called Around the World in Eighty Days. No woman wants to go around the world in eighty days. Do you know how much packing and unpacking you would have to do? You want to stop, go shopping, sample the food. Many years ago at Dartmouth, a female professor was teaching Erica Jong’s Fear of Flying.
