Not all aging has to be this disappointing disappearance of what made a man special. I’m not saying that a subscription is going to keep good men good (although it can’t help) but I am suggesting that we hold our public figures to higher standards of “good.”
As a society, it might be better if we start admiring mens’ WORK instead of the men who make the work. We can love Rosemary’s Baby without respecting Roman. We can worship Annie Hall without admiring Woody. We can listen to Run DMC without associating it with the current iterations of the men who made it.
And in the meantime, we can hold THESE men fucking accountable, right?
