Alert: Jackie Mackey Paisley Passey Spotting

The internet's most famous high-quality woman is now married, but wants you to know she doesn't lack for male suitors (presumably of high-ish quality, but not actually high quality, alas):

I've noticed that a hugely disproportionate number of my blog "friends" are single heterosexual males (SHMs). Perhaps this is just an innocent correlation due to a combination of my primarily "male" interests and the additional free time that singles have available to spend socializing online. But I suspect that in many cases it's because their interest is more than friendly. This was flattering when I was single, but now that I'm married I'd prefer that my friends not fantasize about having sex with me.

I realize that sexual attraction is not every SHM's motivation for befriending me (so no need to leave ego-deflating comments about how much you don't want to have sex with me, thanks :) ) but it's the motivation of enough SHMs that it makes me suspicious of all of them. Especially since I am apparently not very good at reading people in this area I've been surprised by how many of my SHM "friends" suddenly stopped speaking to me after I got married. (Many of these former "friends" also used to pretend that their interest was only "friendly" when I was single, so I've stopped believing SHMs about their true motivations for friendships with women.)

Meh. I feel guilty linking this, because what she says isn't really all that far-fetched: Guys are horny bastards and the moment a woman identifies herself as such on the internet, suddenly she's going to have a lot of male "friends."

Still, I link it, dirty feeling or not. Because -- maybe this is just my bias against her -- I can't help but hear the triumphant notes of Beethoven's Ode to Fabulousness singing just beneath her words.

Thanks to Dan Collins.
