Turns out, women are just super bad at objectifying dudes. Even when they try to put into words the perfect male “personal assistant” profile–such as in this Craigslist ad found by ScalleyWag & Vagabond–they only start by listing physical traits (“Yeah send me a pic or five, dick pics are ok but one should be of your face :)))”) before quickly move on to emotional girlie stuff.

Ladies, we know how hard it is to get work out there these days. All the secretary pools are overstocked, and now that the war is over, the men have taken back all the canning jobs at the factories. Sometimes it’s enough to make you want to start an all female baseball team, which a gruff Tom Hanks could manage and tell you when it is and is not an appropriate time to cry.

Gross guys on Craigslist are nothing new…it’s basically why Craigslist was invented by Jimmy Wales. (Well that, and to halt SOPA. And to clarify, yes we know that Mr. Wales founded Wikipedia, not Craigslist, but our sense of humor might not be translating as well after a 24-hour Golden Globes binge.) But today’s listings have led us to a guy who could Mike the Investment Banker look sane. Or maybe it is Mike the Investment Banker?? Read More
