>The ever vigilant D. sent me an email earlier today about a new blog that she found. It’s called Is Anyone at Cosmo Getting Laid?. The idea behind the blog is genius: Who the fuck writes the inane and stupid advice columns and articles about sex at Cosmo, and what the fuck is wrong with them? It is something that I have long wondered myself.
Yet... Is Anyone at Cosmo Getting Laid? is a perfect example of things that turned me humanist misanthrope. When I started reading it, I was excited to find something that I was sure would be cool and hilarious. By the time I finished reading it, I was flabbergasted at how I could have anything in common with such a misogynist fuckface, who to be fair, is still hilarious at times.
That is what being a humanist misanthrope is all about: having high hopes for people and then being disappointed as said hopes are smashed on the rocks, pulverized, and made into finite dust. Sigh. On the other hand, The 50 Most Loathsome People in America, 2005 is exactly the type of hilarious commentary that I seek. So all hope is not lost - read it and weep (with tears of laughter and also real tears for the state of the world).
