    My theory of competent dicks goes like this: Incompetent dicks do not keep their jobs. A few of them seem to hang around in the public eye, but that might be because they are actually competent at something, in secret.

    With the competent dick, the thought process is, “He’s (historically dicks are male, but we’re growing more equal) an asshole, but at least he’s our asshole.”

    Whereas competent non-dicks do not get any attention, because we are too focused on 1) dicks, and 2) incompetence.

    To my mind, there’s no changing this. It’s who we are.Report
