The Mask Slips

Hugo Schwyzer links to Kathryn Jean Lopez calling someone a "good girl role model" for sacrificing her life to have a kid. That's what little girls should aspire to I guess, being a mother and then being dead.

Hugo is, as always, immensely delicate and respectful of K-Lo's values: my own tendency would be to invite her to jump straight to step two, as her career as a pundit seems to have interfered with her reproductive duties. But really, going through life with that kind of self-loathing—she is a woman who literally believes women should want to die—has got to be punishment enough.
