Man's Man Speaks Out on "Supergirls"


Norman Delicatecharacter is a dude's dude. Unlike his twin brother Geoffrey, he's touched a girl before. He doesn't need no book to explain to him where babies come from. Or positions to try if you want to make one. Or pretend to. Or how to exchange greetings with another dude.

And he surely has zero interest in self-help books meant for self-absorbed "Supergirls." But that doesn't keep his involuntarily-committed twin Geoffrey from ordering up such an entree for this week's Purple Prose. Enjoy Norm reading a chapter from Liz Funk's Supergirls Speak Out: Inside the Secret Crisis of Overachieving Girls. Geoffrey surely is.
