Why Men Cannot Be Witches


If you’ve made it this far, congratulations. You may have found yourself stirred by the title of this article, perhaps curious or maybe even outright offended. Well, let me quickly assure you that the title is meant as a joke. Of course men can be Witches!

What this article is really about is a behavior I’ve noticed a lot: the tendency for people to comment on articles without having actually read them.

Why is this a problem?

  • The reader doesn’t get all the information or context of the article which leaves them confused at best and misinformed at worst.
  • The author receives comments that clearly indicate the individual hasn’t actually read their article which is annoying at best and shitty at worst.

The moral of the story?

If you’re going to comment on an article, please read the whole thing.

So, if you are one of the lucky few who managed to click and read this article, we congratulate you! Although we do apologize for the misleading headline. In the meanwhile, have fun sharing the article and seeing who manages to chair a discussion without ever reading it.
