Just how PoMo is the celibate one? Here’s a sample from her post on the topic:
Because of my internet blogging activities I ‘meet’ other people online. We have no real life interaction, just email and blogging comments. Then, one reader of my blog-about-dates invites me on a real date with one of his real friends. So I go out and meet in real life this stranger that I first met in cyberspace. (My simulacra world has now spilled into my real world). We have a real nice time. Then I go home to blog about the date, so I can create a simulacrum of this real event. However, I know that the people who experienced that same real event will read the simulacrum of it. This knowledge affects the way I report the event online.
Yikes. JL’s observations make me happy that I dated and married entirely outside of the blogosphere — I just don’t know if headache-inducing PoMo discussion about the nature of real experience is conducive to a healthy dating life.
