The Obsession With Penis Size Is Heartbreaking And Inescapable

An excerpt from God’s Doodle: The Life and Times of the Penis by Tom Hickman, available now from Soft Skull Press that was published on Slate taught me a number of things. One of those things is that I’m definitely buying that book. Another, that human penises, in relation to the human body, are big compared to other animal penises.

By the way, no, the advertisers aren’t cool with it). So, that article of Maura Kelly’s you ran about fat people entitled “Should Fatties Get A Room” because Maura Kelly hated seeing fat people… exist, basically… that was there for a really good reason, right?

Like, see, it’s this paragraph that has me confused. More »
