Where men can be divas

Rashmi writes about the Calacanis-Winer “breakup” and asks Has anyone else noticed this trend - men being more open on their blogs?.

I don’t think men are being more open. I think these people have a clear case of diva-ism.

The blogosphere has given the so-called A-list bloggers an opportunity to behave as capricious prima donnas, and they are using it to the full. This is nothing new for men. Men have behaved like this in other spheres, such as the arts, for a long time.

But maybe it is not only the blogosphere what fosters this behavior. Perhaps it is also Silicon Valley, with its culture of technological gurus and “alpha-geeks”.
