Kate White Classifies the 20-Something Woman
Courtesy of Cosmo’s leading lady Kate White and some unknown marketing company that have polled 1,001 women on the meaning of their lives, we now have classifications about what type of 20-something we are!
Because thank God, I was wondering where I fit in to the world.
Are you a “Go for it Girl” that knows what she wants and won’t settle for less? Are you a “Restless Explorer”, someone who is just “indecisive” aka reformed slacker?
Are you a “Pleasure Seeker” that thinks girls just want to have fun? Or are you a “Housewife Hopeful” that just wants to pop out well-mannered babies?
Oh, the choices! The decisions! I just can’t decide!
I guess I would be a self-proclaimed “Go for it Girl” although right now my face could grease a cookie sheet and these sweatpants I’ve been wearing for three days (I took them off for a date—natch) have egg yolk on them from my splooging egg sandwich this morning.
But I sorted my boyfriend’s laundry and started the dishwasher so doesn’t that mean I go for it? And later I’m planning on getting laid so doesn’t that mean I REALLY go for IT?
Uh, I think so.
And as Ann Curry so wonderfully pointed out, it’s the superwoman syndrome of our predecessors, that first class of feminist “Go for it Girls” that have turned 31% of us into little Anne Hathaway spawns from The Devil Wears Prada.
But remember what she did in the end? She tossed her sidekick into the fountain and told
Anna Wintour Miranda Priestly to f*ck herself.
And then she wrote a tell-all “fiction book” turned movie and made millions.
I guess that sort of going for it isn’t that bad. As long as you aren’t a housewife hopeful, a Paris Hilton pleasure seeker or a slacker restless explorer.
So go for it, 20-something!
Just don’t fit into the other lame—I mean undesirable—sixty nine percent.
