The case for fewer fucks and kicking kindness to the kerb.
Today, I read a couple of articles in quick succession about giving fewer fucks, and kicking kindness to the kerb. Neither article advocates for either of these to be a no-exceptions rule, but both make a strong case for them as worthy attributes.
The articles pressed all the right buttons in my brain, and if I wasn’t dedicated to the cause of fewer fucks and kicking kindness to the kerb before, I am now. No more wanton kindness and fucks (in a manner of speaking) – they will be meted out circumspectly. It won’t be too difficult, I have to say, as the ship with most of my fucks on board has long since sailed, anyway. For that, I extend my gratitude to trans activists, who had no mercy in demonstrating just how easy it is to shaft us when we’re ‘kind’.
Enjoy these reads –
Milli Hill advises younger women to “be more menopause”, because that’s where the holy grail of zero fucks lies.
Julie Burchill says in summary “sod kindness - it’s kryptonite for women”.
