We’re sorry we missed this last week because we really could have used a “What’s wrong with straight men?” post to balance out all of the “What’s wrong with white women?” posts.
So what is wrong with straight men now? It turns out they hate astrology — a lot.

All right, we have to know: why do straight men hate astrology so much? Because it’s been so gendered, that’s why:
Sam [Hill] feels similarly that astrology has always been gendered, and that the male response to that – to ignore it – makes sense. “It’s hard to indicate what I mean, but, for example, if a girl in school likes a certain book, the boys can’t like it for fear of being called gay or whatever, so that book becomes a girl’s book,” he said. “The same can be said of horoscopes. I think women are drawn to them out of a sense of curiosity and spirituality that is drummed out of boys at a young age.”
So, it’s a chick thing, and that’s why straight men dismiss it but gays are cool with it.

Because it’s complete and utter bullshit?

We don't hate it. We think it's idiotic. There's a difference.

Straight men used to love astrology – back in the days when witch burning was still a thing.
Now we don't hate it, but just put it into that category of things, like timeshares, Nigerian email scams, pyramid schemes, etc. that are an obvious waste of time and money.

Reasonable men and women, gay and straight, find it silly. End of story.

Indeed. STOP making EVERYTHING about GENDER.

there's just something about having a penis and being attracted to women that makes me resistant to the unscientific idea that the alignments of stars and the month and year I was born dictate how my life will go

Damn straight men and their rationality!

well i can tell you for a fact it ain't just straight men lol
and maybe the reason people hate it so much is because like "witchcraft" its just some bullshit bimbos do to substitute their complete lack of a personality

Why liberals lump people together to declare broad generalizations and feel entitled to judge them. https://t.co/hhwInwFPBd

I take offence at this article. Women are also able to recognize astrology as being crap.

So basically what you're saying here is that astrology is gay? https://t.co/x4PU6xAK8z

Hopefully the planet and the stars can tell me what the point of this article was.

The worst thing about astrology is that it's false. The second-worst thing is that it's all about people, not something interesting like machines or ideas.
But the third-worst thing is articles like this.
