I heart acquaintances

In praise of acquaintances, my column in Monday’s New York Post.

“Four friends who will be there for you if you need them at 3 a.m. is a solid number, and there’s nothing wrong with the other 146 friends playing a different role for you. The truth is the 3 a.m. crises are, hopefully, few and far between, and if you have four people you can turn to during those times, you’re already in a great place friend-wise.

But for the rest of your life it’s fine to have friends and acquaintances who tell you how cute you look in your profile pictures, play Words with Friends or leave comments when you crowdsource restaurants in a new city.”

Me and Kim K.

My column in today’s New York Post is on the nonstop guilt women feel when they fail to have it “all.” We feel guilt that we don’t work enough, we don’t spend enough time with our kids, we’re neglectful of our spouse, we don’t look good enough–these are just some recent lamentations I’ve heard from various women. And yes I compared myself to Kim Kardashian.

Leo the hypocrite

Why do so many Americans question the existence of climate change? Maybe it’s because those who seem to “believe” the loudest don’t really act like it, my piece today in the NY Post.

Free Steven Avery

My column in today’s Post is on our new reality: no one is changing their mind about anything, ever. And yes, I think Steven Avery is innocent.

Stop ruining sex

The feminism of my youth told girls we were badasses and we should own our sexual encounters. This new all-victim-all-the-time feminism is terrible, and destroying sex, my column in today’s NY Post.
