Poor Dennis – The World’s Saddest Male Quilter
August 5, 2015
In the May issue of Quilters Newsletter, there was a letter to the editor from Dennis. Dennis objected to Mary Fons using “her” as the default pronoun for quilters.
Everyone shed a tear for Dennis. Hear the tune of the world’s smallest violin.
Poor Dennis has had to deal with the world not catering to “him” as a default. So so sad.
Because of course it was women who callously shut out men from quilting. Certainly not men who shame other men for not being manly enough. Or denigrate anything traditionally feminine as merely a domestic craft, unworthy of artistic merit.
Clearly a despicable case of reverse sexism.
Thank you Dennis for fighting this insidious maltreatment.
(Standard #NotAllMen caveat: the male quilters I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with have been lovely, progressive people who wouldn’t make such asinine complaints.)
