This was linked to by John Podhoretz as "The most embarrasing article ever about anyone." I had another thought however. I never, in fifteen years of living single thought for one moment-"would a women approve of this place?" In fact, women often rented out space in some of my houses/apartments but I'm pretty sure the view was not a selling point. I think the near complete abscence of furniture was the selling point as they had plenty of room. Looking back I can recall many friends, some female, saying under no circumstances can you bring a woman here. Invariably I simply moved in with a guy friend until he got married or otherwise comitted and then stayed in suto until the lease was up. If I found the place on my own their was but one consideration-price and proximity to the Hill.
This is yet more evidence of the disfunction of the modern male. I will say this the book and movie "A Room With a View" might have hinted at this but to spend 10 million dollars on real estate for this reason shows an insecurity so great as to be pathological.
