We cover a fair amount of pro-lady news on this here site, but we love the idea of a site dedicated to nothing but good news for the fairer sex — which is exactly why we’re excited about our boss Dan Abrams‘ new website: Man Down News.
The site comes part and parcel to his soon-to-be-published book, Man Down: Proof Beyond A Reasonable Doubt That Women Are Better Cops, Drivers, Gamblers, Spies, World Leaders, Beer Tasters, Hedge Fund Managers And Just About Everything Else, the title of which hopefully gives you a pretty clear indication of what it’s about. Apparently, women also make better publicists, because we heard about the new site via Glamour’s website, where the man who sits in an office three desk rows away from us gave Rosemary Brennan some insight on the new book, the impetus for the site, and why, exactly, men are so bad at relationships. [Read that here.]
Anyway! Instead of working, we spent the afternoon perusing MDN, as we now like to call it, where we learned a few things that we think jive nicely with Styleite’s more typical offerings. For example, after examining consumer reactions to unique products, like a car without visible wheels or a soft drink packaged in a strange way, researchers determined that “women are better than men at figuring out an extremely unusual product, as long as the product is promoted among competing products.” Considering the type of things some women wear in the name of fashion, this doesn’t surprise us one bit.
And while this has absolutely nothing to do with fashion, we can’t help but celebrate the fact that a 10-year-old girl one one of this country’s most prestigious chicken raising competitions. Wait, nevermind. It has everything to do with fashion: her winning chicken, Pluck, is apparently named for the “heavy groomed needed to keep him in competitive shape.”
Fashion (and ladies), FTW!
