I didn't like this article the first time it was posted

This is not a slam against a repost, as it was originally posted over 2 years ago, but I don't feel like typing up again that I think this article is douchey and patronizing.

Here's a great example of why this guy seems like an asshole to me

    On my walk home from work, I was whistled at twice, honked at twice, and one car almost caused an accident slowing down to stare at me. Sometimes I really hate men.

    Core reasons for posting: Image Crafting, Jealousy Inducing

This article 2 years ago basically soured me on the guy writing waitbutwhy. He seems like an asshole.

On a side note, search is way better in that it's returning things, BUT, everyone let's try a little experiment. Copy/paste the link for the Gen Y article into search and see what comes up.

It's like 15 pages of results, most of which I don't understand why they're showing up. It's...interesting. Also, the original posting of this article didn't show up at all in the first page of results. I found it by searching "waitbutwhy.com". Then it was in the first five or so results.

My reaction exactly. Like the world needs more condescending douchebags who think that complex problems can be summarized into one heavily biased blog post, solving nothing but giving everyone more mud to sling at each other.
