Sully has a new part of the Dish: Ask Andrew Anything. His latest underlines the beginning of a discussion that needs to happen in a world in which maleness is challenged.
I love the thought and earnestness of these little clips. However, I don’t think Andrew is entirely right in his description, but he […]
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, this chicken is both a hen and a rooster:
The bodies of these hen-rooster hybrids, or gynandromorphs, have a mixture of genetically male and female cells, the research reveals.
Only about 1 in 10,000 chickens are born as gynandromorphs, which have male features—such as a rooster’s comb […]

Second, guys, I am really sorry about your penises. You know, the ones we took away from you with our book clubs and our vampire TV shows.

Ask yourself this question: What is the masculine form of the word “mistress?”
Can you think of an answer? I couldn’t.

Almost half (46%) of respondents to our recently concluded poll answered “Both” while the other half split evenly between “Mostly from society” (24%) and “Mostly from […]
