And Just Like That, Political Correctness Killed Sex and the City – The Quint

Posted: January 9, 2022 at 4:43 pm

Weve all been Carrie at a point, with our money put where I can control it, hanged in my closet, a pile of shoes and a broken heart; dating the city when there was no one else to date, or being underpaid but writing stuff we loved.

Please, if you can, give us back the Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte of yesterday, matured from the joints of life but still with a sparkle. Those witty, politically incorrect but human friends. Give us back mistakes, failures, jokes, gossips (maybe not Cosmpolitans, I hate it). Give us back the boldness of (almost) youth theirs and ours. I would not want those three grown-up boring (and not that well dressed) ladies as friends to save my life, at the moment. And frankly, once the dutiful and cathartic tears for the way they (and we) were are dried, I can not help but ask myself: whats the ultimate meaning of such an operation?
