Actual Fan Mail Received in Today's Mail

Mr. Perry:

Based on your most recent column in the Flint Journal, regarding lower wages for women versus those paid to males, I believe we can now add MISOGYNY to the long list of character flaws for Mark Perry. It is ironic that your column was published shortly after a column by Ellen Goodman appeared in Flint Journal, concerning the same issue.

It appears that Goodman, a Pulitzer Prize winner, and an eloquent writer, was able to address this issue without resorting to the shrill rhetoric indigenous to your writing. Like most business majors, your writing skills are barely adequate, reflecting a "knee-jerk" conservatism, and, even worse, a mediocre intellect.

Nice article.

Someone either needs to look up misogyny in the dictionary, or learn logic 101, or both.

I submitted the article to reddit. I'll probably get creamed because of it, but perhaps not.

M. Wilson,

Do you have a specific complaint with the article that you would care to discuss? People often write articles from an opposing point-of-view. That's how it works in a scholarly exchange of ideas.

What is "shrill rhetoric”? You complaint does not have any substance to evaluate. An attack on the writer of an article does not substitute for thoughtful insight.

I’m sorry, but I’ll be blunt here, your accusations could result in some people questioning your intellect. Let’s see your data to refute Professor Perry’s: If you have any.
