When did Dan start selling ad space in his column?

Dan's often had kind of a blind spot with women. This post reeks of overcompensation. Like others, I really don't see sexism here--and I say this as someone with a PhD that focused on gender issues.

As someone in an open relationship, I couldn't disagree with Dan and most of the commenters more. Most people seem to be fixating on the fact that it isn't reasonable to expect a partner to not kiss a date. Maybe so, maybe not, but either way, it's irrelevant. What is relevant is that boyfriend made a promise to LW that he broke. Twice. If the promise was unrealistic, BF ideally should have recognized that before making it--and certainly should have realized it after breaking the promise the first time. LW has every reason to be upset. I would be, too.

In response to some of the commenters above: the writer is indeed male. Mathew Irwin. You can learn more about him and his thoughts on going viral here. http://chronicle.com/article/A-Medievali…

This took place in East Lansing, Michigan, home of Michigan State University. For confirmation of location and a truly appalling take on Dreger's live-tweeeting (OMG! There was swearing! My ears! My ears!), see: http://www.lansingstatejournal.com/story…

Is that why he wanted to stop everyone else from having a shot at entering lady Manhattan?

@4: In theory, I agree that they should follow the same logic. Yet I found myself voting for "email" and "e-book." I think it's a function of familiarity, but I wonder if substitutability is also relevant? Email and mail are fundamentally different in a way that e-books and books are not. By this logic "e-book" is a type of book, but email and mail are different enough to warrant different words.

@ What is a "lesbian," and how is it different from a lesbian?

Wow, stampedes, the posts are really not helping your case at all. They make you sound controlling and kind of unhinged. When I read DailyCallerLW's posts, I thought, "ok, maybe he just flipped out for a couple days. Not the best response, but I could understand being emotional under those circumstances." But vitriolic posting in a public forum with identifying details is a shit move, and the fact that you're doing this two months after the fact demonstrates that your harassment then was not simply poor impulse control in response to a stressful event. In short, it sounds like your ex is well rid of you.
