So, last week, this garbage was published at Vox: "I love the Victorian era. So I decided to live in it."
There has been much pushback against the piece, and this is a pretty solid piece of serious criticism: "Vox's Victorians."
And there were lots and lots of parodies of the piece, many of which were hilarious, but this is my absolute favorite of the ones I read: "I love the Flintstones Era. So I decided to live in it."
Use comments for discussion of the original piece (BECAUSE OMFG WHUT WHUT WHUT) and to share other responses, either serious or satiric, that you like.
