I'm feeling frisky today, so I thought I would continue my mockery of Laura Sessions Stepp. Stepp wrote that brilliant piece today on wingmen. Please scroll down a bit to see my long and hilarious take on her shoddy journalism.
Toby, a superior blogger and partner in crime, took the time to run Stepp through a Lexis-Nexis search. Here are her topics of choice:
MIDDLE SCHOOL ORAL SEX
July 8, 1999, A01, 2368 words:
"Parents Are Alarmed by an Unsettling New Fad in Middle Schools: OralSex"
January 18, 2001, C4, 1882 words
"Just Freakin' the Night Away"
ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION (To be fair, I actually enjoyed this article.)
May 7, 2006, D01, 2383 words
"Cupid's Broken Arrow; Performance Anxiety and Substance Abuse Figure Into the Increase in Reports of Impotence on Campus"
HIGH SCHOOL ORAL SEX
September 16, 2005, A07, 785 words
"Oral Sex Prevalent Among Teens;Majority of Those 15-19 Engage in Practice, U.S. Study Finds"
So, it turns out Laura Sessions Stepp is the worst kind of journalist: The Alarmist. Also, she is really interested in oral sex.
UPDATE: A reader informs me that I missed:
"Fast and Loose; It's the 'Player' Who Gets The Girl (Or Girls), and a Rep That's Good and Bad."
