just reading a good piece on instagram there

I don't despise men, but no one can deny that their opinions on women have attributed to the insecurity as a whole. In my mind, I think some men believe that women don't (and shouldn't) have a hair out of place on our pretty little wig-weaves. Then, when they see what women actually look like, they freak out.
THOUGHT PROVOKING.

While Viceland also has a younger audience than many networks, its average age is still 42, which has had the effect of both expanding and aging Vice’s demographic. This was more than a small problem for a company whose entire selling proposition was its ability to reach a young audience. Over the years, Vice has proclaimed itself the voice of Generations X, then Y, and now Z, the youngest of whom don’t identify with the punk tenor of the company’s origins. Vice’s audience still skews male, and a loyal chunk still lingers from the company’s more macho days. (A Vice staffer told me it was relatively easy to get access to law enforcement: “Nobody loves Vice more than cops.”)

I had only read the abstract of that yesterday but just read the full thing now and found myself nodding furiously in agreement (apart from using comma-delineated csv files, what kind of lunatic would use that instead of tab-delineated?).
ME.

It just reads like a middle aged man constantly tripping over himself for fear of being called out of touch and trying to second guess every possible critic of his opinion. Which all of his articles read as but this one is particularly over the top.

There's nothing wrong with it, in fact i'd say it is worth a read.
