Like a lot of people in the last week I've been on a crash course. I've binged on Vine. I've read every outraged blog. I've even watched two troubled media types debate on Newsnight - yes, Newsnight - the enigma, the phenomenon, the [INSERT OFFENSIVE WORD OF CHOICE] that is...

Introducing HuffPost UK Men

(17) Comments | Posted November 2, 2014 | 7:00 PM

It's almost impossible to be a man. I doubt I can prove that sweeping (and deliberately inflammatory) statement with science or fancy statistics, but take it from me, it is. And I'm not alone thinking that.

The first time I listened to Led Zeppelin I was sat in a car park in my mother's car. I remember the moment like it was yesterday. It wasn't the epiphany I'd told it would be. It was, well, disappointing.

(0) Comments | Posted June 26, 2014 | 4:36 AM

È la stagione della caccia agli uomini giovani - in particolare quelli che fanno il loro mestiere di calciatori in Brasile (con scarpini bicolori e tutto il resto).

Why Do We Hate Young Men So Much?

(7) Comments | Posted June 24, 2014 | 6:05 AM

It's open season on young men - particularly those plying a trade as international footballers (mismatched boots and all) in Brazil.

(2) Comments | Posted December 11, 2013 | 6:27 AM
