In case you (hopefully!) missed it, this piece about Dating & Hookup came out in The New York Post. In it, opinion writer Naomi Riley grossly misstates our views and takes all our statements out of context. So much for the journalistic ethics of truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity and fairness.
Normally, we would see an opinion piece as simply part of the debate around a controversial new idea like Dating & Hookup. Heated discourse goes with the territory of re-defining the modern love landscape. However, as we are sure you can tell, Ms. Riley crosses the line by deliberately misrepresenting us and our ideas and linking us to events in which we play no part.
We responded on Twitter. See screenshot below. And that’s all the time and attention we will be giving to this piece.
