Sloane Crosley and Emily Gould: So Much In Common!

GIRLSLook at these ladies! Ladies just stone cold writing books, report The Beast and The Times. Like, within a whole month of each other! Two ladies! Let's compare and contrast: Yup! These are definitely both books about being alive and a human being while, incidentally or not, also having a vagina. Also, don't forget, you know who else has a vagina and also lives in a city? That's right: Meghan Daum. N.B.: I am solely complaining about the editorial assignments here, not their authors or the writing of these assignments. I reserve the right to complain about any of that (or not!) at a later date!

Ha. Women writers are kicking ass! Did you here that, black writers?

Don't forget Charlie! There's a rumor she's got a black vagina.

White people write like *this*. Black people write like *this*.

They're just like Truman Capote, what with the vagina-having and authoring and spats with Jacqueline Susann and all.

The real similarity? Puzzlingly bad cover design.

The Cover Says Meh

They certainly share a font problem. But the pensive bear gets a pass, I think.

The pensive bear gets a fucking Pulitzer.

But which one of them is the Samantha?

Ursula K. Le Guin, def.

These pieces don't touch on one important piece of the puzzle: Are their menstrual cycles all in sync?

Does Open Face index here?

This post qualifies as "complaining"? Geez, it's like Dale Peck never even existed.

Yeah but Sloane dated Ferris. Emily was, like, totally the Goth girl who spent prom twirling her hair around one finger and looking at you funny.

Re: Sloane: "She chooses a vacation destination by blindly spinning a globe and going wherever her finger lands (Portugal)…"

Pretty lucky landing! I'm guessing that she aimed her finger high…wouldn't want to accidentally choose Ghana, or the middle of the Atlantic, or something like that.

Also, is that really that remarkable? The writer of the article acts like doing that is like having unprotected sex or something. Geez.
