Unfulfilled Ask

I cringed when I read the teaser 'Why Women Are So Bad at Writing About Sex' on the cover. The line implies that this article will finally explain the answer to this consistent and pervasive mystery. The judgement is as sweeping and compartmentalising as it is untrue, and it smacks of the very oversimplification the article so precisely works against. Claire Dederer's engagement with the complex­ity of writing about desire deserves a better teaser, and your readers deserve a better assessment of their willingness to open a magazine that publishes, rather than hides, such complexity.
