I’m kind of sorry that I’m so late reading this. A truly superb post by an excellent writer. With ASD.

Pellicer’s … main [idea] seems to be that if you convince a woman that there are a bunch of other women after you, it’ll get her interested despite herself.

Another thing that happens with a lot of fish is that they spontaneously change sex if they find themselves in single-sex groups, so, you know, if you’re a guy living and working in an all-male environment you might want to start buying menstruation products just in case.
