Dear Katie Roiphe:

Don't look straight into her eyes

Aren’t you exhausted already? Doesn’t the whole neo-con feminist contrarian business get tedious after a while? For years, you’ve been cherry-picking tenuously relevant examples from our popular culture in order to support pieces like your current Newsweek cover story, in which you assert that, as women become increasingly powerful, they’ve also become—particularly in the sexual realm—fixated by “the stylized theater of female powerlessness.”

Nice turn of phrase there, Katie, You’re obviously a very bright girl. So why not stop being the kid in the back of the class making farting noises for attention?

    Ooh, you’re so right about old Katie. She’s been doing this preposterous schtick since the 80′s for god’s sake.

    Ah, Kim! So glad you are writing for public consumption again. And perhaps I should be thrilled that you aren’t with Lucky anymore if it means that you now have the freedom to write posts like this.
