The Fake Fempire

So psyched to read in the Sunday Style section that Diablo Cody has not one, not two, but three girlfriends, who all sit at home writing together, getting their menstrual cycles in sync, and calling themselves The Fempire. Honest to blaaaawg.

Now, I'm as much for an anti-Apatow antidote as the next girl, but it's a little bit obvious that the linchpin of these ladies' coverage comes from Diablo. Would the Times ever run a profile piece on the man who co-wrote Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist? Or, god forbid, What Happens in Vegas (like one of Diablo's Fempires?) It's a condescending "Good for you ladies!" item that only got written up because one of the four women is a legitimate household name.

Any article is going to have a catalyst. It's like you just pointed out that the sky is blue.

I definitely had some issues with the article, but I didn't find it particularly condescending.
