Jon, I realize my last comment was full of sass, which sorrynotsorry. But in the spirit of helping understand why one might rejoice over the topics Natalie chooses to write about:
They deeply resonate, they make me laugh and feel less alone. (And belonging is right up there with poverty, injustice, and eduction reform amirite? Don’t answer that.)
Also because she’s a grown woman who gets to choose what’s important to her. And when she does it, she does it beautifully.
Maybe question your discomfort with her chosen topics before you get out your Bossy Pen (found in the Bic aisle).
Cynicism moves us to challenge the status quo. And the status quo indeed sucks.
