    “Because the very fact of being a women is a slur, to some.”
    Thinking they are unattractive in any way.
    Thinking that even if they look different they can’t be beautiful because if they were found beautiful by someone who has a more open mind to beauty then it’s an insult.
    I’m so… So confused…
    Maybe if it was coming from people who weren’t beautiful… But that’s bad, so I shouldn’t say that and they can pretend not to be atractive because not everyone wants to be beautiful, I guess?
    My god… My only point is that I’m so glad my generation of twenty something year olds and younger totally skipped this weird self centered and needlessly complicated version of acceptance, self image, body dimorphism, kindness, respect, ect. And are way more mentally evolved by total chance, to the point where we dont loose any sleep over thinking about this kind of thing and just do it. At least the vast majority of people my age I’ve interacted with.
    Plus we hydrate proparly.
    The crystal stuff is a joke right?

    Kate Berlant is brilliant. I first learned of her about 3 weeks before her “The Characters” thing on Netflix and she NAILED it in her episode. Showcasing the very narrow and underserved space of the self absorbed intellectual postgrad non-self-aware miserable asshole mindset. I knew so many men and women in this demographic because I was hopelessly attracted to it after college. The crystals thing killed me. Perfect. I can’t wait to check this POOG podcast out.

    A hint of truth of which we all relate makes the pain in the humor funny. Unfortunately, they were desperately flashing a neon sign their truth seeking to be deceived. Was that funny or just desperate? Seth isn’t often uncomfortable on his own show. That said, the world can benefit from a little more desperation.
