I expect [nature] also explains the visceral pleasure that most women get
from gossip, which most men really don't seem to enjoy nearly so much--the
perhaps sad truth is that I feel closer to my female friends when we have gotten

I've always thought that Linda Hirshman had a tenuous grasp on reality, but
not this tenuous. ...
Girls will be girls, I guess. Drezner asks for suggestions as to how

That is not in any way "perhaps sad." It's completely and utterly sad and not a little bit despicable to boot. But I guess when you're insecure and incapable of self-reflection, it's best to spend your time picking apart the faults of others and ignoring your own.
I see from FMM that they are getting into it in the comments. I am not sure if Hirschman is being fair when she accuses McArdle of being sexist. Women are simply less useful to Megan than men. It's a matter of mathematics.
Oh, I'm going to have to go pop some popcorn for that one!
False alarm. Apparently, Megan's side of the "cat fight" was an imposter.
