[Ed. – Major news organization, eh?]
If you thought things couldn’t get crazier this week, I present this NBC News editorial for your consideration. Someone in their newsroom apparently thought it would be a good idea to publish an editorial praising the destruction of marriages as a triumph over the patriarchy because everything is stupid.
Over the past week, an assortment of trending stories — from Jeffrey Epstein to the Dayton and El Paso mass shooters, to Miley Cyrus’s separation and Julianne Hough’s declaration that she’s “not straight” — together have laid bare the strictures of an American patriarchy on the edge of a nervous breakdown. As the status quo, heterosexuality is just not working.
What does the El Paso shooting have to do with the patriarchy? I’m pretty sure that was about a crazy person and white supremacy. But when your currency is victimhood, one can essentially tie everything to supposed inequalities among identity groups and that’s what this author is doing.
