This. This is sexism's eternal motto, the one we can't stop hearing, the one we can't escape: "[Women] are not capable interpreters of their own experience."

Coffee. Kitten or animal snuggling. Reading the book and sports pages before turning to the news.

In a clusterfuck of swinish misogyny, this behind-her-back savaging of a young woman's reputation by a horde of sniggering privileged shitsquibs is uniquely rancid. Not only vicious and dishonorable, it's so damn small. Way to go, . Raising leaders for our time.

Now we want "5 Over 50." Or, raise the bar, "6 Over 60!"

If the most gangster character in your show, movie, or book isn’t an old woman then I don’t believe your story. No one is more gangster than an old woman who no longer gives a fuck.

All I’m sayin....”Sexual intercourse is defined as “vaginal intercourse or any insertion, however slight, of a hand, finger or object into the vagina, vulva, or labia, excluding such insertion for medical treatment or examination.”

Thank you, love. It’s fine. Better to start at 38 than to never start at all. My life is good. I just hate to see someone like you, who is SO TALENTED, getting overwhelmed by meaningless meansurements. ✍️😘

Thanks. I have a lot of different privileges. But sometimes, I long to have grown up in a home where my writing was encouraged.

Agreed. They’re talented. But I think promoting “achievement by age” only works when everyone has an equal starting point. I didn’t even start writing until I was 38. It took me until then to think it was “okay” to want to do. Class background had a big impact on me.

We have to start thinking what to build on the ruins of America. Women must be the architects of the new place, coz men will have brought down the old one.

I’m 55. Those lists are for folks who never had to work, etc. Whose life path was clearly laid out. If it makes you feel better, think about the whole class issues not even discussed with the Under-35 lists.

“The longing for rest and peace must itself be thrust aside; it coincides with the acceptance of iniquity. Those who weep for the happy periods they encounter in history acknowledge what they want; not the alleviation but the silencing of misery.” Albert Camus, THE REBEL.
