"I grew up thinking that Miss Piggy and Kermit were the model of a romantic relationship. Piggy, despite her glamor and her confidence and karate kicks, always had the lower status, because whenever she’d express interest in marrying Kermit, he’d gulp and run away to tend to his show or his friends, or to go play his banjo in the swamp. Her amorous intentions were terrifying to him. And I do think our culture is seeing a generation of guys who are not quite able to meet the expectations of women who grew up with feminism and post-feminism, and who still want to be dated and courted and fallen in love with and all the other passive-voiced ways of describing quite active, traditional mating rituals that don’t exist anymore."
