This is not just about women, it's about men as well. Though I could probably be forgiven for stating that it's likely all female-driven, when you look at the ho-hum thinking of this loopy twat out on display for all to see:
What You Learn In Your 40s
She's living in Paris, burbling about how busy your 40's are, and dribbling on about the usual feminist fucktardisms. At the end of the article she provides a summing-up of strange-ass banality:
Finally, a few more tips gleaned from four decades of experience:
- Do not buy those too-small jeans, on the expectation that you will soon lose weight.
- If you are invited to lunch with someone who works in the fashion industry, do not wear your most “fashionable” outfit. Wear black.
- If you like the outfit on the mannequin, buy exactly what’s on the mannequin. Do not try to recreate the same look by yourself.
- It’s O.K. if you don’t like jazz.
- When you’re wondering whether she’s his daughter or his girlfriend, she’s his girlfriend.
- When you’re unsure if it’s a woman or a man, it’s a woman.
This is supposed to be the learning of a mature person in their early-40's, passed on to others for their edification and practical use.
First-look, you could be forgiven for thinking that this miserable excuse for introspective twaddle is a typical female of the modern generation. The sad thing is: she isn't. This is probably someone with an IQ of 115-125, a prime sample of what the academic system puts out with it's "Master's in Bullshit Studies" courses. This is supposed to be the above-average woman of today.
Second look, I realize that this banal horseshit is what is chosen to be put out by the media. Effectively and deliberately dumbing down the human race, so that what is left is speculation about the Kardashiwhores and who next will be dropped from Shitvivor. It's the banalities of what's constantly on our mind/in our face which is the pulse of the human race.
For a species which at one time marvelled and celebrated at going to the Moon, we have deliberately dumbed ourselves down over the last few decades. To the point where we celebrate and are interested in only the banal and shallow.
Which in the end is pathetic and pretty damn sad.
This is why I - and from what I've read, several others - think that we are stagnating and declining. There's nothing really being striven for, and most people out there are generally pathetic pussies of no real worth. They could literally die and nobody would take a blind bit of notice.
We glorify the wrong things, like the Roman Empire did when it switched to Bread and Circuses. Like the Middle East when they started glorifying the entertainers. Entertainers in the old days were nothing more than whores and mountebanks, then they started to become popular in the old empires. They fell. We are falling. The old saying of Nero fiddling while Rome burns.
Oh sure, there will be something left to mark our civilization. Perhaps in a thousand years, the people of the day will wander through the ruins of Manhattan and marvel at the shells of the quaint old buildings. Talk about the antlike determination of those who put them together. Then they'll go back to...wherever the hell it is that they'll go back to.
Banal and shallow. As a species, concerned only with narcissistic mass-entertainment. The frantic scurrying of ants to have this, do this, be this, be seen as being this, without a moment of introspection to actually look at everything and decide for ourselves: "hey - I don't have time for this crap".
Keeping up with the Joneses. It's alive and well in our mentality, if not the driving force behind everything that we think and do. As bland as pap and mush.
