I enjoyed this immensely.

Given that this piece was in response to an earlier one about sexism, please consider replacing the phrase “rule of thumb” with “rule.” The origin of the rule of thumb, as you may not know, is as the legal standard size of stick a man was allowed to use to beat his wife. The use of the phrase seems misplaced if you are trying to avoid sexism.

Thank you.
