Dealing with ambiguity

Ann Althouse has an interesting post up today on ambiguity.

The source of it is an article in GQ called "How to talk to the women in your life right now." "Right now" meaning after the Kavanaugh hearing. The sentence that caught Althouse's attention is: "If your friend says she wants to cut off every dick in a five mile radius, let her!"

Ambiguity aside, the intended message is that if your woman friend expresses her rage this way, you shouldn't argue with her. Apparently, women are helpless creatures who can't deal with argument.

I don't know about that but I'll tell you what I would do if a woman friend of mine said something like that. I'd stop being friends with her.
