    My biggest problem with Kate Bolick’s piece was not that she has no intention of getting married. It was largely being very dense around the issue of her class privilege. There was one section where she talked about borrowing a house in the Hamptons. I think the friend was another single lady who spent most of her time in London. My immediate thought upon reading this sentence or hearing about it was:

    “Really? How many people have the time for all that?”

    My inner socialist kicks a lot at trend pieces about the 1 percent or close to 1 percent. There is a big difference between being a single woman who can borrow a house in the Hamptons and a single woman struggling via low-wage jobs!Report

      I have to assume that Mr. Ryan is not endorsing the sentiments expressed is all the linked pieces. After all, the second piece on the list is something he himself wrote to criticize the first piece.Report

    Forgive me, but I’m struggling with a question on works left off this list; particularly a href=””>this, and most particularly, the commentary.

    Slut shaming galore.

    If that’s where we’re headed, no thanks.Report
