One was getting fucked in the ass by a topless misogynistic geek . Another was a free thinking hippie who drank too much and got pregnant. One was dating a nerdy douche who’s touch she couldn’t stand and finally there was the girl who got stuck with the asshole who basically ignored her on their date. Thank you HBO’S “Girls” for giving me this delightful peak into the minds of today’s young women. If this is the voice of a new generation – that generation needs to do something other than date – because it’s annoying, dull and setting the rest of us back a trillion years. I remember when I had to stop watching “Sex & The City” because it turned into a show about a bunch of women only talking about men and each episode started to resemble “Wild Kingdom” with these women stalking their prey each week and now it seems we’ve passed that concept down to the next generation. “Girls” has no hope. I don’t like watching hopeless people. It’s not inspiring to me. I also don’t want to watch a show where men are the only topic except for one small trip to one girls internship. Everyone is so up in arms that the show is only about rich white girls but I’m up in arms that’s it’s a show about women and their hideous relationships with men. At least in it’s heyday on Sex & The City – the girls ruled. They chose who they dated and they fucked over anyone who tried to fuck them over. They also had jobs. I am painfully aware that the number one subject amongst most women old and young is “men.” How to get one, keep one, find one, land one, feed one, date one, dress one etc. I’m not that woman. I think if you count up all the blogs I’ve written about men you’ll find two. There are so many other subjects in the world to tackle for women… especially young women… that I find it difficult to watch a full half hour of a show about their exploits with men. I hope the girls on “Girls” grow because I am truly proud that I live in a world where a very young girl can write, direct and star in her own television show for a major cable network. This is great example for other young girls with voices and dreams.
Maybe my biggest mistake in my life is that it’s been ruled by work but my work is very creative and it’s a massive part of who I am. It’s not that I haven’t had experiences in dating – I’ve had ones that would curl your hair and possibly melt your brains but they’re not worth putting on television. They’re worth putting in a drawer and shutting. Even on my favorite disgusting reality show “Bad Girls” when the ladies act like assholes – they’re not fighting over a man – they’re fighting over important things like shoes and drinks and closet space. I only started having girl friends in my life when I turned forty because it seems that’s when most of these girls finally settled down with one guy and became so sick of him that they stopped talking about him. I wish girls would find something more to talk about than boys. I would have more girls in my life if they did. I’m not saying men aren’t important I’m just saying it’s 2012 girls – get a life.
