I’m old. I grew up in the ‘70s along side the ‘social justice’ Feminism of Steinem and Friedan. Today, I barely recognize what passes for Feminism these days. To me the ‘Lean In’ Feminism of Sandberg smacks of business Republican elitism and entitlement viewed through a female lens. On another website a porn star

The Buzzfeed article reinforces 2 things for me:

1. Giving someone money, power or responsibility simply because they’re “Internet famous” is foolish and you only have yourself to blame when things don’t turn out well.

Lauren Duca’s behavior at NYU is shameful but so is NYU’s hiring of Lauren Duca to teach a journalism class. Teaching is hard. Teaching a 3-hour college class is extremely hard.

One of the things I have come to appreciate about LA over NYC is that LA is very upfront and honest about the fact that almost everyone out here is selfish and out for themselves. In NYC it feels like people lie to themselves and the world.

Ya, you really have no right to call anyone’s work “basic” or “vague” after you crank out the word salad: “establish the imperative of interconnected motivations in the ideology of feminism and practice of journalism.”

There’s no law of the universe that says that you can’t be a feminist AND a shitty professor, boss, colleague, neighbor, whatever. Feminism is only a social philosophy, not a social skill. I’ve met some feminists who are just straight down garbage in their dealings with people.

The difference is: Scaachi actually did grill Duca. All you did was rewrite Scaachi’s work.

All you did was take the Buzzfeed piece and rewrite it, using all of the best quotes the Buzzfeed writer got. How is that different from a 14-year-old kid rewriting a Wiki article for a homework assignment?

Yeah, it was fun to watch, but it wasn’t some kind of revelatory documentary piece. It was a behind-the-scenes look at a concert with allllllll the filters on.

Plus, she did not choose to be born into a presidential family, why should she be paying for her dad’s bullshit? I don’t get it. Let the kid live her life and do dumb college shit.

I’m pretty sure every U of M student, especially if they grew up in Michigan, made that decision already, whether it represent reality or not. I’ve never encountered a more self-reinforcing mentality in my life. And I’ve mixed it up with actual cult members.

The cut away shots to the audience are trash 99% of the time except when they cut to Queen Latifah during Lizzo because she had this look of sheer pride and joy that filled me with happiness
