sometimes I just stare at one of your posts in absolute silence and think to myself "**** is wrong with this man?" mid-life crisis is a sexist slur designed in order to devalue male-existential crises and reduce them to carnal and material desires. it's a word for belittling a serious psychological phenomenon that can also appear independent of age and sex. "oh, silly guys is unhappy with his marriage, he just needs to buy a motorcycle and chat up some woman at a bar". it's another way of shifting blame to an individual and away from systemic issues. truth is, what we call midlife crisis is just one of many existential crises we go through, we just happened to find a really snappy label for it. this is my new pet conspiracy theory. hope you like it.
