It's Amanda Hess for Slate.  Start every article of her's assuming she's wrong.  Then count points in the article about how wrong she is.  If she happens to stumble on a correct idea, count points for every reference she makes to people who thought things through more than she did.

Seriously, she's troll bait.

Just.... no.

Great idea! I heartily endorse it. Get rid of the ties while you're at it too.

I'm all for this.  Also, I think I can see Al Gore's wiener tip.

Ok, she wouldn't do you, this happens sometimes dude. Move along.

Depends on the guy.

And, for the record, Dollar Bill Clinton has some pretty nice gams.

Does a certain number of points equal a drink? I would hate to do all that math for nothing.

Short shorts for men are in now. Just sayin

Sounds like a fun drinking game actually.

I don't know why, but I just never liked shorts. Even when it's 40* C, I wear jeans and a t-shirt.

Came for this.

/wait... what?
 
2014-05-16 10:45:30 PM  
oh, god, I just read the article:

"girls are made to pass fingertip hemline tests to gain access to middle-school classrooms."

Gee, an institution created to prepare children for work enforces the incredibly draconian rule of not wearing shorts that let their buttcheeks hang out. Surely this is the greatest assault on women since the Taliban were stoning them in the marketplace.

I'm getting mixed up who actually is writing this story:

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB1000142405270230483130457954631 2 161483266

The WSJ has almost the same article and this Slate article even pulls the joke about scientists freaking out.

Weird.
 
2014-05-16 10:47:52 PM  
So I should fight sexism by looking like a farking tool.  Yeah, pass.
 
2014-05-16 10:49:05 PM  
Pork swords. Hamburger phone. That is all.
 
2014-05-16 10:49:30 PM  
great. thanks Man Faye.
 
2014-05-16 10:50:25 PM  
Women dress sexy to attract sexy men. It has nothing to do with me, or any other guy on fark.

One point equals a half drink

Like in Parts, The Clonus Horror? All you had there was smoking crotches.

Amanda Hess is a Slate staff writer. Email her at am­anda*h­ess[nospam-﹫-backwards]et­als*co­m, or follow her on...

No.

Amanda Hess is an idiot. Or drunk. Probably both.

Just make sure you unpack your male privilege backpack first.

We had the dollar bill test.  They'd hold a dollar bill against the girl's leg and if the skirt was higher than the height of the bill, she had to call home to get a new one.

Which means that there are adults out there who are being paid a salary to closely examine a girl's thigh while holding singles.

Fingertip test would work for me.  I got stubby arms and legs.  I could wear a skirt halfway up my thigh and be in compliance.  Of course, the rest of you would need eye bleach and suddenly gag whenever you saw plucked poultry.

Not gonna happen.  If a man accidentally catches sight of any skin closer than four inches to another man's penis, then the first man will turn gay.  Men don't want to risk turning gay so they've all agreed not to wear short shorts.

If by "nice gams" you mean translucent hams, then we agree.

This seems like a good theory, but there is that whole "shirts vs skins" way of playing casual sports.

And that's why wrestling never, ever was invented.
 
2014-05-16 11:05:32 PM  
No.
 
2014-05-16 11:06:04 PM  
Five inch shorts have been fratty for years, is fashion now following frat trends?  Are fishing shirts and Costa Del Mar sunglasses the next huge trend?

2014-05-16 11:12:43 PM  
If you can't see my hairy coin purse the shorts are too long.

THAT'S what you consider weird about the world today? Your straight laces are tied too tight.
 
2014-05-16 11:16:12 PM  
Well, I can clearly see Al Gore's nuts.
 
2014-05-16 11:19:42 PM  
After seeing Al Gore's ding dong poking through his shorts, I propose we come after subby and whoever wrote that article with bottles and chains, or pitchforks and torches!
