Susan Walsh In The Atlantic
October 13, 2011 By 21 Comments
My friend Susan Walsh at Hooking Up Smart gets to make some waves in the mainstream with a serious mention in The Atlantic in the piece All The Single Ladies by Kate Bolick.
It’s a well written article, but I’m completely distracted by Kate’s picture. Is there a garment that screams “don’t touch me” more than black lace? Smile? Was the whole black widow look intentional?
While the article is mostly about her inability to find a husband due to the changes in the sexual marketplace, I don’t think she even once mentions what a man looks for in a wife. Or what she looks for in a husband.
Maybe her real complaint is that Pretty Woman was just a movie…
There are thousands of men that might have wanted to marry her if given the chance. She just wasn’t interested in them. The sexual marketplace is as much an internal thing as an external one…
…and it shows in facial expressions.
