Creepy as hell, but excellent attention to detail and use of Excel’s Data Validation feature.
From the start, the Times story smacked of a junky romantic comedy script (think “Bride Wars”), the kind that bumps along on a string of giddily repugnant stereotypes about femininity (and masculinity) and that reverberates only with a dim echo of anything you know to be true about men, women and humanity.
Even the Times story’s headline — “It’s the Economy, Girlfriend!
” — looked like it belonged on the chick lit aisle at Barnes & Noble, and the DABA site’s language of welcome — “if your monthly Bergdorf’s allowance has been halved and bottle service has all but disappeared from your life” — sounded like a pitch for a 2003 television series.
How much of the DABA project was in earnest and how much was satirical or just plain made up remains cloudy, even after the Times’ note (and the NPR and Newsweek stories about the group).
