I was really pissed off by this retarded NYT article on the so-called “girl crush.” Here’s the most offending paragraph:
“The brain system for romantic love is associated with intense energy, focused energy, obsessive things – a host of characteristics that you can feel not just toward a mating sweetheart,” Dr. Fisher said, adding that “there’s every reason to think that girls can fall in love with other girls without feeling sexual towards them, without the intention to marry them.”
What? Is he fucking serious? Does he have a bird alarm and a car that’s made out of rocks?
I know a lot of people may not agree with me on this, but… are you a woman? Do you have a crush on another woman? Would you never admit, to yourself or to anyone else, that you want to have sex with her? Does that have to do with the fact that you live in a society that equates sex with love and love with marriage, and where marriage is only possible to a man?
Just a thought.
