On Getting 611 Comments On The Huffington Post

A few weeks ago, the lovely and talented Lisa Belkin asked if she could republish my "20 Things Nobody Told Me About Little Boys" entry on The Huffington Post. I said sure! And damn! I probably should have spent more than 20 minutes on it. Another 10 minutes and I could have come up with at least 10 more Things Related To Pee, surely. 

Anyway. I said yes and then promptly forgot all about it. Occasionally I'd remember and go look for it, and eventually assumed it had perhaps appeared briefly and been met with a deafening army of crickets, then promptly pushed back into the morass of the HuffPo archives by the approximately 14 million things that get published there on a daily basis. 

Not so much. 

It actually didn't go live until Monday, and Lisa was kind enough to make sure it was treated nicely and highly visible. BOOM!

I checked in on my little listicle right after it went live and had a weird reaction of being completely embarrassed, like OMG DON'T LOOK AT IT, NOBODY LOOK AT IT. OR ME. I closed the browser window and basically hid from my own damn blog post all week. 

I finally felt brave enough to venture back last night, figuring that it had probably dropped off the main parenting page by then, and decided that I was also brave enough to read the three or four confused-type "WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN" comments it had probably collected. 

That's when I saw that it had over 600 comments and fell off my chair. Then I got back on my chair and rubbed my grubby little paws together, because gurrrrl, you just know this is gonna be good. A number that high was oddly liberating, proof that at some point the conversation had surely derailed away from any meaningfulo critique of my writing or how weird my hair looks rendered HuffPo-style in my headshot, but had fully entered a batshit zone of wankariffic crazy.

Indeed it had. Here are some of my favorites.


Cute, quaint, observant but totally irrelevant! While parents dwell on the stupid and cute the things they should know about parenting remains an unknown. Parents parent the way their parents in most cases and if the parents were bad, guess what. That's why we still see child abuse. All it takes to produce a child is to successfully screw once! If our society really cared about children they would require that every male and female who wanted to have a child take at least one year of college level courses in how to parent. They would have to take a child development course that would teach them that children learn certain things in stages. Worrying about sex or nudity, bad words at someone who hasn't reached a certain stage of development is ridiculous and a waste of time. When I took my course in child development there was a young woman who got very upset because she couldn't potty train her child. When the professor asked her how old the child was she said 10 months. The professor asked the class how many people thought that 10 months was a good time to potty train a child. Most of the class raised their hands. The physical skills needed for potty training develop in both girls and boys at between 18 to 30 months. Though both boys and girls develop the necessary skills at the same time, the average age of potty training varies between the sexes. The average age for girls to be potty trained by is 29 months, and the average age for boys is 31 months. At 36 months, 98 percent of children are potty trained, according to the University of Michigan Health System. These are the things that are not commonly known and should be. We have certainly reached an age where we should have cast aside the notion that people can only have sex for procreative reasons but child rearing is too important to leave to chance. Of people need a license for something as mundane as driving a car one would think that raising a child which is far more complicated should also require training and a license to ensure that the child is raised in a healthy and safe environment. Most of what gets said about how important and precious children are is BS. Just look at how Americans have allowed the religiously brainwashed and the owner class to deprive children all over this country to continually have their education system dumbed down, privatized, and underfunded while there is always money for wars and war machines!


There are several that are listed as separate items but are actually one thing: 14-16, 3-4, 10-11. Also, 4 items about pee? I have an 18 month old son and if I had 20 things to say about him--even if I was generalizing to all boys--none of them would be about his pee.


I can only say I hope you can get over the way urine seems to dominate your thoughts and only retain the beautiful memories of your babies childhoods.


Jerry Sandusky is writing under the pen name Amy Corbett Storch


Every time I read crap like this I want to ask women "Do you really think you ate the only gender in this world?". Women are too self absorbed to pay attention to men.


This article wasn't that good. A column with numbered items should not reference the comment before with additional information. The whole thing lacks wit and humor.


...but I HuffPost keeps telling me that sex is just some kind of artificial construct imposed by society on our children!

You're a beast for choosing your child's sexual identify! You clearly should treat your children as gender-neutral-beings until they are old enough to choose a sex for themselves.


Misandry beginning with boys. Let's take each item: (1) You will spend a crazy amount of time [time better spent doing what? and the inference is, it's an imposition on the mother's time] clipping their weed-like [the idea is that they are unwanted growth] fingernails, even though your own nails don't grow worth a damn.

Misandry beginning with boyhood. Item (3): Little-boy funk-smell [presumably a bad smell] kicks in sometime around age 3. Second negative.

Misandry beginning with boyhood. Item (4): 4. It [boy-funk] smells like a combination of feet and maple syrup [an unpleasant smell]. (3) and (4) belong together. Third negative.

(This guy went on like this for awhile.)

Misandry beginning in boyhood. Item (5): You will totally get peed on. In the face, directly, at least once. [Apart from the fact that urine in a healthy person is sterile and in some cultures is used to treat wounds, the negative here is that somehow this is unpleasant. Only boys' urinating comes in a stream and this is somehow not pleasant to the mother.] What is worse, if you read the literature on child psychology, you will see that many mothers punish their boys at this point. Let's not discuss child (boy) abuse here. Another negative in any case.

(Quite awhile.)

Not to belabor this, but misandry beginning in boyhood continues item by item: 6,7,8,9,10,11,12,15,16,17,18 (here men are introduced as objects of misandry). The last two items are supposed to make boys endearing in spite of all that is disgusting about them. Not that "wuv" is different from gratitude. Yes, boys are "awesome." Why not just say that and describe how?


Really, though, I found it all terribly entertaining and wasn't personally bothered by any of it, because: EH. They don't know me or my boys or "get" my "humor" or whatever. And the majority of the comments were positive and sane (although I admit I got bored by page 10 or so). I saw several of YOU GUYS there too, which was fun and a reminder that I am incredibly spoiled when it comes to blog comments, because YOU PEOPLE are always so kind and funny know, not like that. *waves hand in vagueishly upward direction* You're the reason I can bash out a funny-ish quick list like that without feeling compelled to overthink it and anticipate the more fringe-y negative reactions it could possibly generate. Anyway, thank you for being so awesome. I'm sorry I don't say that enough.

(The ONLY COMMENT on HuffPo that actually for-real kind of bugged me and made my fingers itch to type a reply to was a one snarking that "Amy Storch needs to learn how to use word wrap in Microsoft Word" or something, like I was personally responsible for the formatting of a post that I had nothing to do with after I gave my blessing for someone else to copy-and-paste it. And like, you can't paste formatting from Word into blogging software ANYWAY because it makes everything wonky so your comment simply reveals that you don't know anything about web publishing and therefore I HEREBY WIN THIS INTERNET.

Acuse me of misandry and gender stereotyping and THE REASON WE HAVE WAR MACHINES, but don't imply that I don't know how to use word wrap, maaaan. I do. I'll word wrap your FACE.) 




"I'll word wrap your FACE" is the best thing about this entire post.



Makes me want to do a headdesk/"I don't want to live on this planet anymore" to think that there are so many crazies that they can be found that easily/quickly.


And in the meantime, I'll be reading your posts (Amy) and roaring with conspiratorial laughter and wishing I was bloggy enough to come to one of the conventions so I could just give you a hug and thank you in person.


I love you, man.

Suzy Q

Ha! Man, some people really need to get a life. Those comments are cray-cray!


Word wrap? Bizarro. Huff Post readers best recognize the Notepad necessity of stripping out formatting.

That misandry garbage is hilarious.

Comments sections of news sights have started to make me doubt the future of humanity, but these made me chuckle.

Thank you for sharing the comments and for your list!


I loved the Misandry one best! That dude must have been joking, right? Because those comments were really too ridiculous to take seriously!

I personally loved that post of yours very much. But I gotta admit, this one was just as good. You are awesome, keep writing!



I loved that post! Thankfully for (finally!) identifying the little boy smell. It really is a mixture of sweat and syrup.


LOL, and good for you! I loved that list.

I have the same reaction of "OMG, don't read my stuff (but I secretly want you to)" when one of my articles goes live on a certain website.


Comment number one? She doesn't have kids. Proof positive is that she wrote a 2,000 word comment to your tongue in cheek list.

You win the internet.


I did not realize you wrote that. I saw it posted on reddit (I think). Probably why you had all the crazy comments!

Amy in StL

The last two paragraphs are just another example of why I read your blog. I don't have kids - at this age it's looking like I probably won't - but your writing is so cool. Please just keep being yourself, it's pretty awesome.


I long ago realized that the majority of people who comment on news posts are bat crap crazy. It seems like this holds up.

Congrats to you on getting on Huff Post.


man, those huffpo readers take their comedy so seriously.

My husband actually pointed out your post to me on huffpo, he is a vicarious Amalah reader through me but he hearts you as well. He was all "OMG, Amalah is on the front page of huffpo today!!" Which was kinda cute actually. He does not take his comedy seriously however.

Congrats on the post. I read it first here and again on huffpo and chuckled both times being the mother of a boy and all. And also not having a stick up my ass. ;)


Heeeee! I'm loving the person who is all up in arms about you dictating your child's sex. Sir, or Madam: PLEASE look up the definitions of sex and gender.

And this list still cracks me up.

I'm glad that someone out there thinks getting hit in the face with urine sounds like fun. They can come diaper mine! (Or... maybe not.)

Rookiemoms just posted an awesome photo session outtake of a dad cuddling his naked newborn and being surprised by the obvious result ( - both reminders of what I'm headed for with boy #2. (Yes, hanging on to the last few weeks of the pregnancy countdown here... wishing you'd updated it the third time around just so I'd have more to chuckle at!)


I suppose I should say "SOME" of those huffpo readers take their comedy seriously, just to be PC and all. :)


I am a lurker who has lurked since like...2004, but I have to tell you that "I'll word wrap your face" almost made me spit out my morning coffee. Happy Friday!


This is crazy, crazy bat huffpo readers.

sonja lange

you do WIN the internet


I can't believe you forced those children to be BOYS! They could have been anything bu look what you gone did!

Anyhow. I heart you. and your word wrap SKILLZ.


I love you, your blog, your boys, your humor, your pets, (need I go on?). =) The end.

Mom In Two Cultures

You and your brainwashing, forcing those boys to be boys and pee through their penises! Finally called out, I see!

All I can say is that lengthy comment sections almost always make me question the future of the human race.

Kim W.

Heh. People are really really funny, in an odd funny way, not a haha funny way.

"What is worse, if you read the literature on child psychology, you will see that many mothers..." DUDE! Have you ever raised three boys? I just don't believe this comment at all. Also, what literature are you reading? Stuff from the 40s?


I will wordwrap your face is going to be my new tagline. Hee Hee!


This is why you never read the comments.


I can't even... What is wrong with people?! I don't know whether to laugh or continue shaking my head... I love you. And your lists. And your opinions. Also terrified of being on your bad side. Because that "wordwrap" threat was excellent! ;)


Wow. Who are these people?! I love the "misandry" comment. Dude, you wrote like WAAAAAYYYY more words in your comment than was even in the list! I think that guy needs a better hobby.

Still love your list!


I love you so hard.

That is all.

Ashley Pierce

Wow. Some of those comments are uber special. Its the HuffPo for goodness sake. I love this list. I'm expecting my first, and I dont know what kind it will be... other than that it will be of the Human variety. In the general range of small. But this list, OH! This list... makes me laugh. A good hearty belly laugh. I also sent it to my MIL. She thought the same thing. Those peeps with the wackadoodle comments should realize this is a BLOG intended for entertainment. What right is it of thiers to judge anyone. psshhaw.

Amanda Pack

I have actually quoted your list verbatim to all my boy Moms and it is ALWAYS met with laughter and agreement and occasional snort. I guess I am not as sophisticated as the average Huffington Post Reader. Y'know actually having a sense of humor.


My child is currently running around refusing to put on a diaper and peeing on the floor. I second the need for intensive therapy. And margaritas.


Wherever Huffpo is I am not going there. For God's sake I read your blog because it is funny...not for parental advice...seriously? Now I am off to play with my deodorant containers and Thomas characters.


OMG - This tells me that Americans are waaay more weird than I thought! I can't believe someone questioned how you were spending your time and then spent their time dissecting your list and pointing out "negatives!" Can you say WTF?!


People that take themselves that seriously? I have no desire to know. You're fantastic and anyone who doesn't see that can suck it.

And I think I'll be using "word wrap your FACE" as my new catch phrase.


I just have to say that having a little boy child myself, i thought it was HILARIOUS when he peed on his head and in daddy's slipper the day he came home, the princess comment starts when they are so little.. if i put on a necklace i am the prettiest person he knows.. and anyone that doesn't understand the LOVE coming from your post doesn't have children.. and really probably shouldnt.. you should just wordwrap their FACESSSS (extra s's for emphasis)


Friends don't let friends read internet comments (or listen to the C-SPAN callers). I read a few, all ready to put in my "you rock" comment but there were well over 100 by then and pssshh most of these people aren't regular readers anyway, flinging around such misandramy. Misandramy. I tickles mahself. (And the fact that I only have one boy and already bow to the power of the pee).


And this is why I am sad Lisa Belkin moved to Huffington. If she'd re-posted your blog post on Motherlode, the comments would have been fewer, but certainly more intelligent and fun. Alas.


People really are:
1. humorless
2. batshit-insane
3. bored
4. dumb (see 1 and 2)
5. needing to be word wrapped in the worst way.

Love the original post! You just keep on keepin' on!


I am stupid enough (or rather new baby sleep deprived) to have to quickly google define Misandry. At first I kept thinking he misspelled misery and then at the end I figured out it was a real word.

So now, I am stupid and pee covered. Life. She is sad.


So much to say, so little time... you rock, Amy :)


I love how misandry guy not only thinks that a person changing a diaper should find a baby peeing in their face pleasant but that parents should just let their kids fingernails grow and grow. After all, it's not like they can scratch themselves or others with them. MORON!


So, when I read your list originally and thought it was funny, as I have 2 boys under 6, I apparently really missed an opportunity to rage against the machine!!! Next time I'll try harder to get all worked up.

Halala Mama

Okay the misandry, misandry, misandry guy? I have a boy. I agree with your list. And I don't even know what misandry is so I hope I'm not guilty of it. Whatever dude. He writes as if to suggest that a mother should be thrilled to have her little boy pee right in her face (I'm not saying he should be punished for it either, but the HELL).. If you are tickled by pee to the face, then you have deep deep problems. Horror should be the appropriate response.


Haaaaa. Misandry. People need to chill the f*!& out and see the humour in life. A list of 20 things (all true!) about little boys is not cause to rant on for 6 paragraphs about gender discrimination. Geez.


Ditto what Della said.


The only thing more annoying than the WORD (??) word-wrap complaint, is that as I view it in my Firefox, it was wrapped perfectly fine. So that means the genius must be viewing it in some wonky caveman-era browser like I.E. through AOL!

Jen W.

Oh man, the crazy really came out. Also, I had to go look up "misandry" on Not cool, dude. It's a HuffPo comment, not a dissertation.


This is why I come back day after day after day.


I saw that on HuffPo and totally thought I'd read it somewhere so didn't read it there. Didn't put together that it was YOU!
Honestly...people who comment on internet written pieces like HuffPo or....any other place...are basically just looking for somewhere to spout their "holier-than-thou" bile and vent their self importance. (LOOK! I repeated myself.)
And also...PEE PEE PEE! Say it as much as you want! Pee is a natural and necessary fluid in the world. Who DOESN'T know that? However, if you get hit in the face with will not like it.
Seriously...not a THING in your post said "child abuse" to me, but some mouth breather out there with an agenda will certainly MAKE it about his that if they can. "People" suck....and sometimes swallow.

AMY CORBETT STORCH!! You are HILARIOUS and GORGEOUS and a ROCK SOLID MOM-INATOR! ( Because Doofenschmirtz grabs all the cool names)


I can't believe those are real comments. Seriously dude. People are nut jobs!

Guida Mattison

I have been reading your blog (and advice column) for quite some time (since I followed your pregnancy calendar) and often refer to your wisdom to my other new-mom friends. But I have never written a comment, but this post just needs one oh-so-badly. As a mother of a boy, I thought your list was HILARIOUS and had exactly the right amount of commentary about pee (but not much about poo... which seems to control my life, but maybe cause its not gender specific?). I'm just glad none of those grumpy peeps are MY parents. How not fun are they??


I LOVED the comment that getting peed on, directly in the face, was "somehow unpleasant"? BAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Like, it's sterile, so why would that be unpleasant in some way? Clearly it's only because you hate BOYS!


So, you are boy-hating, pee-obsessed, probably abusive, don't understand the concept of 'lists' and can't potty-train your children.

Damn! Them's some funny comments!! Lighten the f up folks! It's a humor piece (look it up like I did misandry).


Unless you write something sappy/cheesy/glowing (referred to henceforth as "sacheeglow") about your children and motherhood, people jump all over you about the joys of raising the next generation. I figure these people are either A) drunk B) don't own any children. Or both. Whatevs.

You're great. MWAH!


I hate HuffPo comments so much that I couldn't even read them here. You are a brave and patient woman for sorting through enough of them to write this post.


Something tells me that misandry guy probably couldn't spot mysogyny in real life. Stupid. If there's one thing you're NOT, it's man-hating, although he could be an exception? I loved that article. A similar one could be written about having daughters.

jill (mrschaos)

"I'll word wrap your FACE!" is my new comeback for everything, all the time now.


I totally scrolled down to reiterate "I'll word wrap your FACE!" in utter glee but see I'm not the only one who loves it.

See? People get you! And your misandry!


Yeesh!! Yet another reason (not that I needed it) to avoid the comments on HuffPo articles.


It's this level of crazy that makes me daydream AT LEAST once a day about going to live alone. Very alone, deeeeep in the mountains. Maybe with some chickens. Because I think chickens might be less crazy and make better company.


The point, it has been missed. In response to comment #1 (in the post, not the comments here)-perhaps what should be required is a license to read and/or reply to articles found online. I just stopped reading comments except on blogs I know and love because, like someone said above, it makes me doubt humanity. Makes me happy to see all of the comments here. Sane people for Amalah!


Yeah, I am definitely pissed (no pun intended) that you implied getting pee in your face is "somehow unpleasant".


Ohhh, people. They are all so crazy.

I love how getting peed on is "somehow" not pleasant for the mother, according to Misandry Commenter. I can't imagine how this could possibly be unpleasant, but apparently SOMEHOW for you it is. You crazy man hater.


Uh, I don't get the Sandusky comment AT ALL. WTF? Was it entry for boners? The others were amusing in that "internet people and their wack opinions" sort of way, but that one was a little disturbing?


Should have said "was it THE entry for boners." "entry for boners" by itself just sounds...weird.

Korinthia Klein

Wowzers. The misandry rant is extra amounts of insane.

And you do totally win the internet!


I'm a lurker that reads all of your stuff. I just wanted you to know that I sent your original list from your blog to my pregnant-with-twin-boys friend. I thought it was wonderful and deserved to be read by all!

Emily Savage

I loved this post when I first read it on your site--anybody who has or ever had, a little boy would! It appears some of the readers of the Huffington Post take their humor, and themselves, much too seriously. They need to lighten up!!


Dude. We love you here. Stay here. It's safe and we won't criticize you for being a bad mother because you joke about pee. Poo is also funny. ;-)


"I'll word wrap your FACE!"

Thanks for the biggest laugh of the day!


"I'll word wrap your FACE!"

Thanks for the biggest laugh of the day!


Loved that original post, and as the mom of a little boy, TOTALLY got it. And my kid has peed into his own mouth. Twice. I may or may not have called the doctor.

But seriously, this has been a crazy week of vitriolic interwebs nutjobs that I have had to deal with at work. How do you not let it get to you? Because I leave work feeling so stabby, I can't hardly function. Maybe I just need thicker skin. How do you do it?


These people are the crazy ones!!!! I have 2 boys and agreed with every one of your points. Why would anyone waste their time "proofreading" a funny list of non-serious items and then actually comment in a public forum? These are poeple who obviously think they are better than other people. What ever happened to just letting other people have their own opinion about something without crapping all over it. Keep on keeping on, lady. You make me smile. :)

Emily B

Whatever. Kudos to you for letting it roll off your back. I loved that post, as a mom of an almost 1 year old boy (fingernails? talons is more like it), and sister to two younger brothers (oh, the funk, I remember it well). Yeesh, people just can't take a funny, lighthearted (and totally TRUE!) post at face value.

charlotte McConnell

Wow! I just want you to know that every time i open my greader feed i look for your blog and read it first. You are my favorite! Thanks for sharing with us and never let the peanut gallery get you down.


Oh alright I suppose we can share you once and awhile.....


I don't know what part of all this I love the most--but I think it's a tie between your masterful titles for two of these wildly left field comments: "I ate your gender and it was delicious," and "The lost art of the properly numbered list." I start laughing again every time I think about them. And I see now that with the correct attitude (which you clearly have), writing for the Huffington Post might be rewarding specifically *because* one would be pretty much guaranteed to garner such space alien comments.

Pansy Lane

Omg omg omg the misandry comment. And the peeing in the face and how "the negative here is that somehow this is unpleasant." LOL I CANNOT. I CANNOT.


"I can't believe you forced those children to be BOYS"!!!!! Laughing laughing laughing. I was thinking the same thing. You have some nerve, cover those boy parts with boy clothes. And give them boy names...although Ezra? Could totally be maybe be Still a boy name. And I love it...I love it all! Everything Amalah! (I'm on sinus meds & feeling happy.)

Big Gay Sam

Oh, the lovely "you're doing it wrong!" internet crowd. To me that's the sincerest form a flattery.

It's pure jealousy. Their panties are in a bunch because they didn't think of it first. That makes hipsters a little wild around the eyes.

Sue C

I have to admit I blinked a few times at some of the HuffPo comments. And then I was LMFAO. Some people take themselves WAAAAY too seriously...............

erin r

Microsoft word is my BITCH. I
would have been completely offended also


Dont ever stop being crazy.



Wow, I went to school with some people with similar personalities. I always wondered how they managed to miss the point and end up in Antarctica (I apologize to the penguins for making any negative sounding comments toward their lovely continent).
I for one adored your list (and all of your blogs), and I don't even have kids! Keep being brilliant and hilarious!


I have and will always maintain...if everyone in the world drove like me and had my (collective our?) sense of humor, THERE WOULD BE WORLD PEACE. Word wrap your face. Brilliant.


I just read your list to my husband and sister and I could hardly speak, I was laughing so hard. We have two boys. The comments made it that much better. Thanks for sharing. Wuvved it.


The post I wrote that got the MOST COMMENTS EVAR (which was something 500ish, I dunno), complete with in-thread smack-down arguments between readers, ranty crazy tangents by conspiracy theorists, and various wild aspersions cast upon my character, was about gardening.


People are weird.


I love you. You are hilarious, and I have been reading for 6 years. Forget the haters.


So "I'll word wrap your FACE" is the new phrase now? Amy, we're still using the hell out of "Give me some chicken, WHORE" at our house. That one never gets old, and works in any situation. Even my 73 year old mother loves it! As for Mr. Misandry, why do I get the impression that his mother punished him for chronic bed-wetting by giving Mr. Happy a vicious little pinch?


Long time lurker... and what does it take to get me to write a comment? Misandry. Though I am always happy to learn a new vocabulary word, I just can't understand how this word even exists. It's sister misogyny has a long & deeply rooted history... but until there is an actual political & social movement to control what men do with their own bodies, I just don't buy it.

And now I am off to clorox wipe the day's pee splashes off my bathroom floor before heading off to bed. Two boys potty training & I simply must rest up so I can misandrize them some more tomorrow.

p.s. Have loved your blog & word wrapping skills since early days... 2004 for reals! xo


I have a rule to not read the comments on news sites because it never ends well... yet I can't seem to do it consistently.. and then I get all pissy because somebody said something wholly offensive and stupid.


Lack of humor is why we can't have world peace. Boys are funny to raise because they are so different from girls, even if you try to raise them gender-neutral, they can still point where they pee, which leads to hilarity always.
(And girls rock at the run-on sentence.)


I get the feeling like the first commenter doesn't have children. If she does she is way to tightly wrapped around the axle...good grief. "OH MY GOD, PEOPLE DON"T TAKE RAISING CHILDREN SERIOUSLY...SOMEONE IS ACTUALLY MAKING A JOKE ABOUT RAISING CHILDREN, AM SELF DESTRUCTING"

I read your list and thought...this is soooo true.


"Misandry" = the new "Inconceivable." As in, I do not think it means what you think it means.



I thought your list was funny, especially as I have a 3 month old boy myself and am marvelling in how different he is to his sister.

You're right: his fingernails need cutting every time I blink, his eyelashes are gorgeous, AND no matter how much I told myself that people who get peed on during nappy changes were just not doing it right, guess what happened? Yep. I got peed on. Right in the face.

And no, sterile or not, it was NOT pleasant. Funny, absolutely, but pleasant? Um, no. I can't wait until he does it to himself, I will laugh and laugh!

Oh, and when misandry has been codified into social institutions and government as misogyny has maybe I will take it seriously. Laughing at your son's peeing habits is NOWHERE near the same as misogyny.


What is it about the internet that brings out people's inner douche? CRAZY.

Squishy's Mom

I liked your list, but I have two girls, so it is hard to do more than imagine....I have never been peed on so I guess I am glad. But good for you, really! Thanks for being awesome.


Wait. It's MISANDRY to not find getting peed on in the face pleasant? Well crap. Guess my boy is screwed. NEITHER his dad nor I have a proper appreciation for facial pee.


I love your blog & your humor. I love that you share many intimate things about your boys but also the funny things about them. I was happy to see your work on HuffPost because my first thought was so many more people will be able to enjoy your work like I do.


I don't know what misandry means, so I just replaced it with the word magic. And damn, with the way that guy feels about magic, I bet he would really hate Harry Potter.


I saw part of this on Facebook. It was funny then but now that I know who wrote it and who it's about it's even funnier to me.


What the heck is misandry?
