Today's tabloid is a piece written by Ruth Whippman. It's in the New York Times so you can ignore it. And yes, it's about feminism and empowerment, blah blah blah. Specifically, that men need to change, abandon excellent, lower standards so women can play too, the same tiring slop you've been hearing for a decade. The article has no value (and it's behind a paywall so why bother?), but who is the person using a national platform (albeit a tabloid) to push a political agenda and raise your blood pressure?
Well Ruth Whippman is an author, journalist and film maker
But the truth about Ruth is the truth I'm trying to point out about nearly all writers "Behind the Post" - they're nobodies. They unaccomplished nobodies. Like everybody else who write these insult pieces, there's no real jobs, no real degrees, no real work. And since none of these people have ever had a toe in the real world, why would you listen to them? And not only listen, but get upset or angry about the foolishness they write?
The truth is you, me, and most other people have real jobs, real professions and real lives we get to enjoy. And just because the NYT's is so desperate for clicks/traffic/money they posted (yet another) feminist troll piece, doesn't mean you have to let it lessen your day, let alone raise your blood pressure. These "Behind the Post" articles are going to be continued to be written until we're dead because about half the population have no purpose or agency aside from their politics and need an outlet to vainly prove to themselves they have value. But it doesn't mean you have to listen to this generation of liberal arts majors and sanctimonious "holier-than-thou" know-it-all 20 somethings.
Life is just too damn short. So enjoy the decline instead.
