Apparently not everyone has heard yet about how feminists aren't all mustachioed lesbians, or how it's usually a bad idea to make a joke about rape. When Vanessa Grigoriadis wrote in New York magazine that sites like Gawker were "emasculating" the New York Post's notorious Page Six, the section's editor, Richard Johnson, had this to say:

"As for us being 'emasculated,' Grigoriadis ignored the fact that half the Page Six staff is female. The male half might take her someplace private and disprove her theory, but we don't like a woman with a mustache."

Perhaps it's no surprise that his last name is a synonym for "dick."
