You guys, thanks to Microsoft’s sexist new ad, I’ve decided to give up my interest in Social News Daily to commit my time to better pinning to my Pinterest boards and finding a guy to marry so I can plan a sweet wedding!
According to my long-time business partner James, Microsoft’s sexist spot is a bit misleading. He says that I can use the Mac I already have to engage in these (far more suited to my vagina) activities than the work of building growing web properties I’ve been frittering said resources away pursuing. All the time we’ve spent using our respective equipment to create and build SND and other sites, and all along I could have been improving my meatloaf skills and debating shoe colors for the big day. Sigh.
Thank God I can consult his masculine expertise here, but I’m kind of pissed no one told me before that all these fantastic tools could be used toward far loftier goals … mainly upgrading my relationship status to married on Facebook, and planning what to wear next season.
Allegedly, I can also save and share crafts and recipes, and I’ve been wasting all this time writing for like five whole years. Who knows how married and well-dressed I’d be in the kitchen right now without males to help us utilize the most cutting edge features technology offers?
Perhaps not surprisingly, women in tech and social media are displeased that Microsoft has innovated a touch screen tablet capable of handling all our wedding-related needs, whining about how they do other important, non-husband-finding activities with their techy gadgets.

I for one find it sad that these poor women and beta men aren’t taking full advantage of the wedding planning advances available in 2014, where women’s wedding-related opportunities are rife and shareable … it’s as if a great giant glass ceiling just shattered, and we can wedding the hell out of everything!
