The Man Date Uproar

This absurd NYT article by the absurd Jennifer 8. Lee asks the absurd question, Can two straight men go out for dinner together as friends without being sexually suspect?

It's making a big buzz on metafilter -- 165 comments so far (one of the briefest of them by me) and going strong. Many of the comments are witty and on-target, although the thread tends to get bogged down in spots, in questions of shaving and in the insecurities of individual commenters.
