Mexican dating norms
For a whole raft of middle-aged female celebrities, there’s only one fashionable accessory you need to dangle on your arm — and that’s a toyboy.
From Madonna to Susan Sarandon, Kylie Minogue to Wendi Deng, Kate Moss to Mariah Carey, it seems more and more women of a certain age are falling for the charms of men years — and in some cases, decades — their junior.
These viking women are the enigma wrapped in a conundrum because the men still haven’t figured them out.
If dating Swedish men was confusing enough, then dating Swedish women must be more so.
Through it all, Trump has spent his time not trying to show that he will be a unifying president, not condemning this wave of violence, but instead holding his own rolling series of triumphalist rallies designed to shore up his personality cult.
But let’s be real, what ethnic group of men can we not say that about?
Though a billionaire, Trump has fashioned himself as a far-right populist, a leader who speaks to the sensibilities of the mob with no time or patience for nuance.
He has enthusiastically endorsed “the torture” against terrorism suspects; collective punishment and executions; religious tests of entry for would-be immigrants; registries of Muslims; the jailing of his political opponents; clampdowns on free speech and on the functioning of investigative media outlets; stop-and-frisk policing strategies against minorities; wholesale deportation policies; and many other noxious ideas.
At the federal level, the mediating, moderating institutions are withering away, leaving an abyss in the centre of US politics that Trump threatens to fill with a toxic appeal to race and religion baiting.
Day after day, one reads reports of hate crimes and a surge in incivility – of Muslim women attacked in the streets, of swastikas painted on buildings, of Latino kids in schools being taunted about the wall that Trump has promised to build on the Mexican border. “Alt-right” groups – some of which share members with neo-Nazi organisations – have held triumphalist events in Washington, DC.
