    This LW is a man…

    Changes the pronoun, doesn’t change the advice. If anything, it makes the comments to the caterer and the screaming at his boss over the phone more serious: greater threat of serious violence.

    Interesting! I don’t know why I had it in my head that he was a woman from the get go. Puts a lot of the conduct in an even less sympathetic light.

    Yes, I was just clarifying, but I do think it makes it worse if anything.

    I always thought it was a man. Interesting…

    I read this letter first and also assumed it was a woman until I read the second. Specifically because of the detail about putting the mom on the phone, actually.

    yeah.I think that for whatever reason I read that bit in the first post about how he regularly tells all the women and men in his life about how they’re making the wrong decision and that was (unfairly) coded as female in my mind. I guess that a lot of the stuff about finding out who “slandered” him maybe for some reason I guess seemed to align more with how I tend to think women see social networks. But knowing that he’s a guy adds a lot more menace to his sense of entitlement over who his friend dates, his threat that he’s “watching” the caterer and the flipping out on his boss when challenged.
