Origins: A Dude Walks Into His Doctor’s Office…
One day A Dude Abikes was sitting in a doctor’s office (ear, nose and throat Doc Slaughter, as I recall). We’re talking bikes, since he rides a bit. Apologetically, he leans in, with a whisper, and says, “This is gonna sound a little wrong, but it’s a good thing.

He grinned conspiratorially, and said, “Think about the acronym.” He waited a second for me to figure it out. I must have grinned back a little, because he relaxed when I realized what it spelled and wasn’t going to nail him for being a MCP (Male Chauvinist Pig). (Remember that phrase?) I don’t remember what I said exactly, but it was something along the lines of “Yeah, well, you’re right, that sounds kinda sexist, but it is just an acronym, and you’re a doctor, so it’s ok. And I sure am putting in alot of T.I.T.S.!” (By the way, while the acronym is in jest, my pro-feminist credentials are legit: reared by a single feminist mother who attended bra-burning protests, a member of S.M.A.S.H. (Seattle Men Against Sexual Harassment), ally to breast cancer survivors, and actual and genuine respect for women in general — particularly bad-ass ones on bikes!).
