The Feminist and the Asshole er..."Cowboy"

Oh fer chrissake.

So, here's the deal: if you date an asshole, he's going to be an asshole to you. This is not a difficult concept to grasp.

How is it that ordinary women who date assholes are just idiots, but if you write a book about it it's somehow supposed to be something more like some kind of statement or radical lifestyle choice?

It's not that I don't feel sorry for this idiot. I do. I feel sorry for idiots in general. Idiocy is a terrible thing. But if you choose to go out with an asshole because you think he's hot...well, abuse is a foreseeable consequence of your decision. It's not ok that the dude was an asshole to this woman, and not ok that he assaulted her. But she can't act all surprised about it. She seems to have sought him out and valued him largely because he was an asshole.

Jesus. Idiots get together with other idiots and, I guess, have little idiots.

And thus is the cycle of idiocy perpetuated...
