So Bill Cosby is a free man. On June 30, 2021, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court vacated Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction and barred the Commonwealth from ever prosecuting him again for that crime. And the world is not happy. I am not happy, either, but probably for different reasons than the rest of you. I … More Bill Cosby’s Release: Why It Doesn’t Sit Right With Me.
‘Tis the season. It seems that every year brings the same debate and that debate never seems to go away: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Well, as a service to the world, I have decided to put that question to rest once and for all. For me, today, this debate arose after I shared … More Die Hard: Why It Is Most Definitely Not a Christmas Movie
As many Americans are aware, Donald Trump has gone to great lengths to cast doubt upon our recent Presidential election by claiming widespread fraud and that it was a “rigged” election. After losing nearly all of the lawsuits he and his supporters have brought due to their inability to present any credible evidence of actual … More Why The Texas Lawsuit Is a Moot Point

It was a response that was involuntary and uncontrollable and, as it happens, it was a response that made my childhood pretty … More Shedding Tears: Why All Masculinity is Toxic (Femininity, too)

How you doin’?
I’ve always gotten along better with women than with men. Most of my friends are women and all of my closest friends are. I have never found it terribly difficult to be friends with someone I am not sexually attracted to or romantically interested in (yes, folks, those are two different things), nor have I … More Just Friends?

If you look back through my years of writing The Metro Perspective, you will see that I used to have a tradition of writing almost the exact same piece of drivel every single January 1st. I would talk about the arbitrariness of January 1st as some significant milestone; some special day upon which you could … More Happy January 4th!!! It’s still a new year…
This is going to seem like a really odd thing for a relationship columnist to admit, but dating really sucks. I know, I’m supposed to be the guy who talks about how wonderful love is and how great relationships can be, but I’ve never been one to BS my readers.
