If you’ve spent two seconds on social media, you’ll have seen this hurled at women by guys who have nothing left in the tank. “You’re gonna die alone, with cats,” they gleefully exclaim, thinking it’s a fate worse than death. It’s their “mic drop” moment, the ultimate insult, the modern-day equivalent of “a pox on your house.”
