“America isn’t ready for a two-woman ticket.”What. The. Fuck.That may be YOUR reality but it is not ours.

According to PoliticalParity.org, “Most studies of the performance of women candidates demonstrate that women fare the same as, if not better than, their male counterparts in similar types of races.
  In 2000, Electronic Arts published The Sims, starting a franchise that would become one of the best-selling video game series of all time and occupy hours (who am I kidding, it’s days) of my future time. In the original simulation game and its three sequels, players can create virtual people, called Sims, and customize their appearances, their personalities, and their aspirations. Gamers lead their Sims through a virtual world and control their everyday lives, from decisions as large as what career paths they choose, to those as small as what they will eat for breakfast.
The ever fabulous feminist comedian Samantha Bee unleashed her frustration last night about the lack of action to address mass shootings in the United States. She refused to follow what she called “the standard operating procedure after a massacre” of delivering a sweet and well-meaning message of love.

It was, and is, as far from the ivy and brick aesthetic as an artwork can veer. And it too has something to teach us about American politics.
