Royal Wedding Rant
Yesterday afternoon a friend asked me if coverage of the royal wedding was on.
I said I didn’t know, didn’t care, and launched into a monologue about how the monarchy is an irrelevant, archaic institution, how it’s ridiculous that citizens of nations who’ve fought for freedom and equality and the right to suffrage are fawning over royals who’ve done nothing to earn their people’s fealty besides possess certain DNA, how massive media coverage of the royal wedding is detracting from more important global issues, such as the fight for democracy in the Middle East, and how William and Kate are so royally boring. If they were going to get this much attention anyway they could at least try to be more interesting people. What use are a prince and princess who are, as the media likes to portray them, just normal people? No dragon-slaying or battles with evil sorcerers? What kind of stupid fairytale is that?!
My friend just looked at me like I was crazy and said, “I just want to see her dress.”
I need to lighten up.
