I'm not exactly fond of his opinions about objective reality, either -
if you choose to read the site that way. Actually, I find it hard to
tell whether this guy is really for or against the truth. And I find it
similarly hard to tell whether this guy is making fun of the women for
obeying the stereotype or the men for believing it. Who knows, maybe
that's the effect he's trying for.

In any case, I'm not responsible for the coherence of the rest of the
guy's website. See funny thing, post. Morality can and must interfere
with many things, but never ever ever our sense of humor.
