It's time to revisit this thing called Modern Love. Let's just call it a Best Of, after last month's winner:

I hope the author takes that fat New York Times paycheck and goes straight to a bonafide fem therapist.

Is it too much to ask for one column that doesn't completely reinforce the patriarchy? Who is in charge of this operation? Is it edited by Beyonce's crazy Put-A-Ring-On-It roboto-hand?

The overarching theme seems to be "Let's exploit the CRAZ-E ladies!"

EVa's forthcoming ML column: How Rolling Around With A Garbage Eating Robot On Parole Taught Me The True Meaning Of Love.

Other examples:

This author gets raped by a man and yet hates all women. Calls girl on girl fighting "tribal instinct." Wants to teach daughters to distrust women too. Great.

This author displays a remarkable understanding of feminism.

Dating someone on parole for rape. Hmmmm.

Oh, and then crying on a urine soaked floor,engaged in the kind of "female" hysterics everyone loves!

I heart you for this post. That column is truly from crazyville. The date rape one in particularly annoyed me.
