Avoiding the Sex and the City deluge

The increasingly awesome Heather Mallick (from the CBC) does a much better job than me on why Sex and the City is a bad thing - and although I'm confident in the objectiveness of my opinion (despite the accusations I don't hate it just because I'm a man), it's nice to hear my opinions validated by a woman (although I suspect accusations will now turn to her being a big fat lesbian or something).

Yes, it's just a television show and yes I'm one to talk when it comes to accusing others of sleepwalking into thoughtless decadence, but the point still stands: it's worrying that Carrie et all are seen as inspiring role models by anyone.

  1. shak, if i'm honest, I dont think heather made her point well, whatever it was. Perhaps its my overly critical eye but i could only read "hey guess what? i'm a highly strung feminist with a massive chip on my shoulder".

    although i havent seen the tv shows, and have no intention of catching up on them, i do intend to watch the film at some point.

    oh and i watched wrestling (WWF) back in the day too..
