Pop of color… pop pop pop! What did they say before that? I can’t even remember! 🙂 Reply mary olson says April 24, 2012 at 9:48 pm I absolutely could not agree more! Reply Laura says April 9, 2012 at 7:11 pm It is! A girlfriend and I decided that it was okay as long as women had a complimentary room. We like the term “lady lair.” 🙂 Reply Stacey says April 9, 2012 at 7:31 pm I vote for the colors of your pie chart! By coincidence, I am retro-re-decorating my living room with these same colors. I suppose it is my “lady lair,” but my family keeps barging in. Oh well. Reply pam kueber says April 9, 2012 at 8:01 pm haha, as I was saving the image, i called it “man cave pie” Reply Trouble says April 10, 2012 at 3:39 pm I’m sick of the term. Just wanted to make that clear. It sounds like a phrase invented by TV home improvement metrosexuals trying to compartmentalize everything. YUCK! Reply Randerson says April 11, 2012 at 5:52 pm Makes us sound like troglodytes… consign that term to the dustbin of history please!

I actually had one of my classes list all the related words they could think of. There were words like moobs, murse, bromance, mantiques. Lots and lots of them! I am hoping to write a paper on their recent upsurge in usage. I have my theories, some of which have to do with changing gender roles. However, I won’t hop on my anthropological soapbox and bore you all! 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
