I have to say I love men being men. Men when they aren’t being hushed by their wives, or trying to get laid, so that they have to act all nice and, er, civilized. I like men discussing war. This isn’t to say that I like discussions of war. Being a woman, I mostly find them boring. My eyes glaze over and I start to wonder if I spotted the laundry this week. (My husband watches the History channel when I am asleep as a kindness to me.) But I do have a finely-developed appreciation for men discussing men-like subjects with other men. There isn’t any sugar-coating of the language, no circumlocution, no euphemism.

That is why I love the War Nerd.
