More news than is fit to print

The writer of this Washington Post column explains that she’s a single mother of two, who goes on as many as six dates in a single week (with six different men), but now that Trump won the election she can no longer date anyone.

I’ve lost the desire to attempt the courtship phase. The future is uncertain. I am not the optimistic person I was on the morning of Nov. 8, wearing a T-shirt with “Nasty Woman” written inside a red heart.

Is anyone shocked that the father(s) of her children left?

Is this the most worthless excuse for “news” ever to appear in the Washington Post?

  2. Are you surprised that her twitter profile picture is this:

    Literally the best photo ever taken of her.

    • She looks like an Irish lass. Often they are pretty, but this one is plain, not very feminine, and aging badly.

      I just recently stopped reading the WaPo; it’s gone full-on retard with anti-Trump partisanship.

    • shes just supremely ‘bully faced’, like she would make an aggressive masculine looking man if she was a guy.

  3. It’s not that she’s ugly, although she’s not exactly Charlize Theron*. She has the classic symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).

    BPD is a serious problem in the left, I’m convinced. On the right, there is a sharp split between authoritarians and juvenile libertarians. But the left is full of manlets and 53 year old women like Sarah Silverman who lose their shit over everything. And this pathetic woman.

    *Charlize Theron is pretty crazy, too.

  4. It’s an expression of privilege.

    If, say, The Daily Caller ran clickbaity male versions of articles like this – e.g., a millennial complaining about the friendzone; or a married-and-bored Gen Xer regretting that there’s no longer tacit acceptance of a “mid-life crisis,” they would have to be anonymous and therefore less viral, because the blacklist only goes one way.

  5. I would guess she is attempting to rationalize her failed romantic life. She strikes me as the classic past-her-prime feminist type who has a hard time grasping that when she was in her 20s, men humored her nonsense in order to get into her pants.

    She does deserve credit though for grabbing some attention.

  6. Anyone who dates up to six different people every week has something wrong with them. That goes double for a single mother with two kids,. There is so much wrong with that. Not the least of which is neglecting her kids. I doubt anyone calls her “white trash” but they should. If a woman from a blue collar background and no degree were to do that people would call her white trash and they’d be right. But somehow liberals are exempt from that label. That woman is absolutely trash.

      Right, and if a black woman were to do that, people would call her a ‘hoe.

  7. Ever since Jeff Bezos bought the Post, it’s gone anti Trump crazy. I mean, the paper was always liberal, but Bezos must have some sort of personal animus against Trump. This isn’t newspaper worthy, this is just throwing everything against the wall in impotent rage.

    • Bezos’s business is the ultimate globalist whore. As goes globalism, so goes 2/3 of Amazon’s market cap. Since most of his employees work for the promise of the stock being worth more he won’t be able to dupe them into slaving away for the company without paying them more hard money, further eroding Amazon’s bottom line.

  8. Men don’t like you because you’re a vapid cow. I feel sorry for your kids. Growing up under a bad example like you will surely result in perma adolescence.

  9. An inadvertently funny article, and all too familiar to some of us, even if it also shows the descent of Jeff Bezos’ Blog into feminine clickbait.

    In August, I went on six dates in one week. I had decided that I was ready to look for a partner. Enough of this dating unavailable men a half-decade younger than me. They’d never seriously consider a relationship with me, my two children and our needy dog.

    I’ve been on my own with my kids for most of the past decade. I have no idea what a supportive partner would even look like in my house. I imagined it as some sort of potluck: We’d both bring the things we have to offer and place them on the table. My ability to multitask and keep everyone’s schedules on track would sit next to his ability to fix cars, cook or read books in silly voices.

    What a wonderful catch. I would estimate from the above that she’s about 40, so from the outset it seems like a lot of upside for the male participant. He gets to fix stuff around her house while she sets up his schedule, for one thing.

    The one dating candidate she eventually snags turns out to have a kid of his own, and after her car breaks down and she starts crying while walking home with her kid — no taxi passenger she — our heroine realizes it can never work and breaks it off with the guy, no doubt puzzled, to instead live for her friends. Curtain.

    My favorite:

    “Just think: You’ll always remember the day you got a tooth pulled with the day we elected our first female president.”

    • I can’t agree more about the unintentionally funny part. I literally laughed out loud three times while reading it.

  10. I have an ongoing pet peeve about how the media that glorifies single mothers.

    This woman chose sexual partner(s) who refuse to take responsibility for their children. She didn’t use contraception. Her irresponsibility means taxpayers have to pay for her bills and her children do not have a father.

    She admits to dating men who are 5 years younger than her. She prioritizes sexier young men over older and more serious men. Perhaps widower or also a divorced man would make a better date. No doubt the younger “unavailable men” were just looking for an easy lay.

    She goes on 6 dates in one week. Who is taking care of the children? Don’t they deserve a stable environment where see their mother every evening?

    She is politicizing her children’s lives when they should be carefree. Children are apolitical. The only reason they get sad or traumatized be election results is if adults tell them they should like that.

    Overall a repellent women who thinks Trump is the source of her unhappiness when of course she is unhappy because she has made bad life choices.

  11. Here’s some ugly reality for WaPo types. This morning in SF I had a plumber come out to snake our kitchen drain. Chinese guy. As he finished he just spontaneously began telling me how his wife works next to an Apple store and how a bunch of black kids came in and swiped all the display items. He goes, “with those people, they just are what they are, there’s no explaining it.” Then he laughed and said in Chinatown a black kid tried that at a butcher shop, got caught, and was dealt with. “You don’t want to do that in Chinatown.”

    • “Around here, your neighbours would turn you in to the police, denounce you to the press and testify at your trial if you did something like that. They’d also have a bake sale for the poor young man.” Whitey is so great sometimes.

  12. This is sad. I don’t want to start sounding like a libtard, but in this case, it really is society’s fault that this woman didn’t have the right beliefs taught to her and settle down.

    It’s sad because it means there is a guy out there somewhere who was supposed to marry her and be happy with the companionship; in some alternate universe, where the 50’s never died.

    Her selfishness is a manifestation of the one personality trait being nurtured at the expense of others.

    Deep down we are all capable of unspeakable acts. Murder, rape, theft, these are all things our distant, but not so distant as to be forgotten, ancestors did just to survive. In the era where privation is not a real threat (for now) we believe ourselves to be more civilized, but in areas like love and companionship, where scarcity still exist, humans are still brainless beasts.

    Heartiste will have a field day microanalyzing this woman’s hamster, but it’s all a waste. Two souls that never met lie on the ash heap of history with the billions of others that met miserable worthless ends. At least she was smart enough to have some kids, while still fertile age. The father’s stock, questionable though it may be.

      I don’t think you sound like a libtard. It sounds like you have a great romantic streak and compassion that’s all too absent from these discussions sometimes.

  13. But two weeks later, the election happened. Once it was clear that Donald Trump would be president instead of Hillary Clinton, I felt sick to my stomach. I wanted to gather my children in bed with me and cling to them like we would if thunder and lightning were raging outside, with winds high enough that they power might go out. The world felt that precarious to me.

    A very pathetic comment from a woman who lives in a conservative state like Montana, which Trump won 56% to 36 over Hillary.

    She’s also written for the NYT.

    And this article has absolutely nothing specific about Trump, it’s pretty clear that she had to throw in a perfunctory “I’m soooo scared!!” screech since she’s obviously their equivalent of an affirmative action writer for flyover white America.
