Every day is man day: Matt Labash is a man. Sorry, men, but the writing’s on the wall, right above the urinal: The world no longer needs you. From Double X, here's a dandy’s guide to girl-watching: Checking out girls in shorts, tastefully. A look at why young single men are more xenophobic and more young women travel abroad. Skipping spouse to spouse isn’t just a man’s game. There’s no such thing as misogyny — at least not in our media, even after an awful shooting in Pittsburgh.
