On men who dress like clowns and the women they martyr.

One of the most irritating things about watching Lizardbreath smugly defame the evil, scary and wrong French Person by witlessly parroting third-hand gossip and rock-solid innuendo is watching her simper about how wrong it was to traumatize poor Anthony by making him dress like an adult and eat like a human being. As I've said before when this subject comes up, moral goodness in a woman seems to be directly proportional to their sheer impotence in changing a man's habits. The ideal is, of course, Elly having to nail herself to her damned cross because John wants to parade around in public in retina-searing colour combinations so he can witlessly blacken her name and disgrace her and she can feel all martyred and unappreciated.

The problem is that if anything, Lynn seemed to be understating it. While the Rod of the present day cuts a fine figure of a man, back when she first met, he tended to behave as if not dressing like he's a member of a hardy band of meltdown survivors was his defense against being emasculated and feminized. This tells me something I should have known all along: even drama queens have problems. Granted, Lynn tends to hide what they are with her inability to be specific as to dates owing to have forgotten when things happened to her but it's clear that some of the stuff she's nagging her family about is a legitimate grievance.
