Ask a feminist about dating  TIM CARMODY  ·  AUG 28 2013

Writer and professor Roxane Gay was recently moved to write a dating FAQ [excerpts follow]:

Why are you still single?
I discontinued settling in 2012.

If you're a feminist, why do you need a man?
I don't need to do anything but stay black and die but I enjoy braiding a man's leg hair while we watch Lifetime movies.

You are confusing and contradictory. I don't understand.
I cannot help you with that.

Are you buckwild?
Yes.

What the hell are you looking for?
All I want is everything.

And now you have asked one (or strictly speaking, n ? 1) feminist about dating.
