Me, ranting on Sunday afternoon:
“I really don’t get it when people are so keen on Sex And The City, I really don’t.
I mean, it’s totally phony and unrealistic, and seems to suggest that if you go out and buy some stuff, your life will be perfect, which has to be unhealthy.
And the worst thing about it is that people seem to take it seriously – a worrying number of women I know quote from things in it as if they’re real situations and as if you can learn from it, despite the fact that half the things they say sound cool or seem to make some kind of sense at first, but when you actually think about them, they’re meaningless, and total breakdowns in logical thinking and… oh my god. I’ve just realised.
Sex And The City is Top Gear for women, isn’t it?”
