    True Story:

    I’ve been told by plenty of girls that they love guys who meekly debase themselves in public.

    Ok, I am a “lady” and I will speak up. Uh, NO. I cannot say that I am excited by spineless jellyfish. Of course, anyone stupid enough to get arrested by joking that he had a bomb would not do it for me either. I kind of like the people who go through it muttering about the waste of security theater and how the terrorists win when we let this happen. But then, I have been anti-authoritarian as long as I can remember.

      You are a criminal-defense lawyer, married to a criminal-defense lawyer. One might assume that you are an outlier.

    My heart flutters and my knees get weak — you’re free to contemplate other physiological reactions, although I won’t discuss them here — for a guy who will go on a road trip with me and a car full of offspring, traversing approximately 2000 road miles (each way), because I want to visit people but refuse to put myself (or the aforementioned offspring) through TSA’s Security Theater/get groped by blue-shirted thugs. That shows strength and fortitude and it’s undeniably sexy.

    Unquestioning compliance with demeaning and pointless routines, obedient submission to authority? Contemplating that behavior makes me feel disdain and brings on physiological reactions like: looking away, crossing my arms, face wrinkling up like I’m smelling something rotten, and I turn away while saying “ewwww.”

    I’m with Katherine. And frankly, I don’t think I am that much of an outlier on this issue.
