“We can’t afford to live lives we have to fool our own central nervous systems into tolerating.” is a brilliant line but I question the gist of the article. “There’s no easy way to be a woman, because, as you may have noticed, there’s no acceptable way to be a woman. And if there’s no acceptable way to be the thing you are, then maybe you drink a little.” I have 3 glasses of wine a year and I’d be embarrassed to be a woman who felt she had to drink to fit in. That part makes us sound like desperate wine-focused lulu-heads, which I for one, am not. Did I miss something?
