so having a problem with a fluff piece is kind of stupid but i find myself having a problem with this fluff piece. specifically, this section:
CRIME: Burly men drinking girly drinks
Gender equality should not pertain to drinking. If the beverage is pink, your underwear should be too.
am i the only person thinking that if i have to witness someone -- anyone -- drinking some monstrous girly concoction like a cosmo or an "appletini" or a "chocotini," or whatever, i'd rather it be a big, burly dude being ridiculous and goofy? you know, as opposed to the aggressively generic paris hilton/julia allison types normally spotted drinking these abominations upon liquor? would it be "better" for him to drink some awful fratty thing like rb&v or miller lite?
not only that, but there are quite a few good, classic cocktails that could be mistaken for a "girly drink" due to being served in a martini glass or being garnished with something.
i don't know why this is getting my goat so much, but seriously, if a construction worker wants to drink a fucking appletini, i am all for it. more yuengling for me.
UPDATE: it's getting my goat because i'm an alcoholic, probably? i mean probably not but for all intents and purposes...don't look at me like that!
