Clearly, I am no woman.
Seriously, this is the single dumbest thing I have ever read on the NYT, and I include their fashion coverage in this assessment.
I just had a ragestroke. When I’m not on my iPod, I will be writing this misogynistic jerkoff an email that will singe his eyebrows off. His bosses will be getting one too.
How dare he?
OMG! I just had to run upstairs and wake my husband up with me yelling, “TALK ME DOWN FROM MY FEMINIST RAAAAAAAGE!”
My favorite part? (and I do say that loosely)
The true perversion, though, is the sense you get that all of this illicitness has been tossed in as a little something for the ladies, out of a justifiable fear, perhaps, that no woman alive would watch otherwise. While I do not doubt that there are women in the world who read books like Mr. Martin’s, I can honestly say that I have never met a single woman who has stood up in indignation at her book club and refused to read the latest from Lorrie Moore unless everyone agreed to “The Hobbit” first. “Game of Thrones” is boy fiction patronizingly turned out to reach the population’s other half.
I HAVE TALKED HALF THE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE INTO READING MR. MARTIN’S FICTION, STUPID EFF FACE! MALE, FEMALE, AND NON BINARY FOLKS. THEY ALL LOVE IT. I ALSO HEREBY DECLARE THAT I AM NOT READING A SINGLE LORRIE MOORE BOOK UNTIL I’VE GONE TO A GOOD HOBBIT BOOK DISCUSSION.
