Loved this line from Joan on last night’s Mad Men, when Peggy was worried that her boyfriend’s insistence on meeting for an out-of-the-ordinary dinner on a weeknight meant he was planning to break up with her:

“Men don’t take the time to end things. They ignore you, until you insist on a declaration of hate.”

Oh, Joanie! You’re so right.

Sometimes I feel uncomfortable about wholeheartedly agreeing with jokey generalizations about men, given that I know I’d probably find corollary jokes about women to be reductive and sexist.

But, come on guys: admit that this one is so, so, true.
