Swapping fishing for blogging?

Catherine Bennett argues in comment is free that blogging, being essentially a male preserve, has replaced activities such as fishing where men traditionally come together and behave like macho-dickheads. For example, the reason why someone might want to show their solidarity with the Danes by posting a picture of Helena Christensen wearing a pair of socks (?) is because we are operating with this kind of logic:
"How can you defend the freedom to offend people, if you don't go round offending them yourself?"
Hadn't thought about it like this before but it's a good point. So fuck off.
