Stephen Colbert Does Rookie Mag’s “Ask A Grown Man”

Stephen Doles Out Some Dad Advice

Okay, I love Stephen Colbert, but I’m not totally down with some of his answers for Rookie Mag’s “Ask A Grown Man” series. While answering a question from a 19-year-old whose father won’t let her sleep at her boyfriend’s house because he’s squicky about sex, Colbert suggests that maybe her dad just knows what’s better for her. (Err, why does this young woman think she needs her dad’s permission to do any of this?) And while answering a question about boys and men making misogynistic jokes, Colbert says “No, I don’t think they know that it’s harmful,” instead suggesting that the jokers just want attention. Some of these answers may be true, but I would have hoped for more empowering responses for Rookie Mag’s teen audience. The “Ask A Grown Man” series can be pretty insightful into how individual men think about certain issues, but this one has parts that come off as kinda man-splain-y. [Rookie Mag]

Ask A Grown Man!

This morning, I opened Facebook to see that, like usual, I only had one notification and it was from my mom.  No complaints!  My mom is actually a lot cooler than me and her posts are generally worth a look.  This one was no exception. It was Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich of Atoms for Peace, appearing on Rookie Mag’s“Ask A Grown Man” video series. The teens’ questions are delightfully honest and the answers’ relevance reaches well beyond its target audience.  This video is a lovely antidote for anyone in a dating malaise. [Rookie Mag]

Whoa. I almost don’t recognize Serious Jimmy Fallon. But Serious Jimmy Fallon is here, dishing out relationship advice for Rookie Mag’s Ask A Grown Man series. He cracks a few jokes, but mostly Jimmy takes his role as advice-giver like a concerned older brother. And somehow I find that totally endearing. [Rookie Mag]

Care For A Balloon Animal?

Rookie Mag’s fabulous Ask A Grown Man video series gives us a peek into the male mind from the likes of Jon Hamm and Judd Apatow. NPR host Ira Glass is the latest grown man to dish out advice (he also happens to be the husband of Anaheed Alani, an editor for Rookie) … but not after first teaching us all how to make balloon animals! A balloon Snoopy, in fact. He also answers questions about whether guys think women with short hair are “feminine looking” and how to tell a man in a sexy way that you’ve never given him a blowjob. “I think I can speak for all men when I say there is no unsexy way to tell a man you want to give him a blowjob,” Ira explains. “Literally any words you choose are going to be the right words. Those are are incredibly welcome words of any man or boy of any age. You could write it in crayon in another language and then translate it word by word. You could write it in Braille and run his fingers across it. You could put the words in the reverse. You could say it Yoda-style, like, ‘Blowjob, want to have?”  Yoda-style! Whoa. Let’s not get carried away, girls. It’s just a blowie. [Rookie Mag]
