When I first read some of Emily Gould’s article, titled Exposed but more accurately dubbed EVERYONE PAY ATTENTION TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, I was heavily leaning towards not writing about it. Why waste more energy on this when having it talked about is just going to validate the editorial decision to print it? But then I found out that, via Attackerman, a member of the article’s supporting cast has his own piece today on his relationship with the main character.
So in addition to NYT Magazine publishing what amounts to a high schooler’s LiveJournal post but with better grammar, we’ve got another article about Joshua David Stein doesn’t like all the details of his love life floating around on the Internet.
Of course, if he were serious about that, then he might have reconsidered writing a magazine article about his love life.
Either way, the whole thing’s become doubly irritating.
