Give us a break, Rosemary

There wasn’t a lot to disagree with in Rosemary McLeod’s column in the Dom Post today. It was basically an attack on blokedom, with specific reference to Paul Holmes’ nauseating interview with his mate Veitchy in the Herald on Sunday. But I wonder if it ever occurs to Rosemary to insert the vital qualification “some” in front of that word "men". To suggest all men are into boozy male-bonding, macho rugby talk and the relentless pursuit of status symbols is as unfair and inaccurate as labelling all women ditzy airheads or squawking harpies.
