Actual Headline

Tuesday, May 10, 2011


"Homance." That is the actual headline given to Jessica Grose's review of Bridesmaids at Slate, in which she coins the deplorable term. For realz.

This article exists in Slate's "Double X" section, which is ostensibly for women (but, naturally, only the cis ones).

There is a lot about "homance" which I find contemptible, not least of which is the obligation to pretend that "ho" is culturally equivalent to "bro."

Yeah, so not.
