Uh, so it looks like Dilbert creator Scott Adams is a bit of a misogynist. Last week, he published a lengthy blog post about “men’s rights,” bemoaning the special treatment women supposedly receive:

“The reality is that women are treated differently by society for exactly the same reason that children and the mentally handicapped are treated differently. It’s just easier this way for everyone. You don’t argue with a four-year old about why he shouldn’t eat candy for dinner. You don’t punch a mentally handicapped guy even if he punches you first. And you don’t argue when a women tells you she’s only making 80 cents to your dollar. It’s the path of least resistance. You save your energy for more important battles.”

He took down the original diatribe when the inevitable backlash reached a fever pitch, but then posted it again along with a halfhearted apology: “To the best of my knowledge, no one who understood the original post and its context was offended by it. But to the women who were offended by their own or someone else’s interpretation of what I wrote, I apologize.”

Somewhere, Dogbert is slowly shaking his head and letting out a heavy sigh.
