So what's the solution? Marketing, of course! The louder, more obnoxious, pervasive and aggravating the better. Thank their horrible ads for these two posts.
As the guy who tells other guys to stop being so damn idiotic, I'm sick and tired of all these articles stereotyping men as misogynistic animals.
Look, I'm actively fighting this problem (and it is a problem, nobody is saying otherwise), with you. So why are you so quick to group me with the monkeys in our society?
Seriously. I'm sick of these articles saying I'm a bad person, and I hate women, and I'm a pig, an animal, and a rapist who should be ashamed of my physical urges.
Please focus on the individual bad apples, instead of grouping them as "men".
As someone who discovered Spritz when it started making headlines, and tried out a similar RSVP app with the novel I'm currently reading, I can tell you that my comprehension didn't suffer. I tend to adjust the speed while I read, ranging from 500-700 wpm, and I can still clearly recall and describe the plot and detailed events of the book over the sections that I read using the app.
I do agree that it's not an ideal way to read, as the flow of text tends to be robotic and lacks some of the conveyance of emotion. In this regard, it's probably better for reading non-fiction or purely informational texts. I can't say it hurt my comprehension, though.
You can't take damsel here now.
