“Giving up alcohol opened my eyes to the infuriating truth about why women drink” by Kristi Coulter for Quartz
That’s the summer I realize that everyone around me is tanked…A woman with a single malt scotch is bold and discerning and might fire you from her life if you fuck with her. A woman with a PBR is a Cool Girl who will not be shamed for belching. A woman drinking MommyJuice wine is saying she’s more than the unpaid labor she gave birth to. The things women drink are signifiers for free time and self-care and conversation — you know, luxuries we can’t afford. How did you not see this before? I ask myself. You were too hammered, I answer back. That summer I see, though. I see that booze is the oil in our motors, the thing that keeps us purring when we should be making other kinds of noise.

Not everybody dreams in colour—12 per cent of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white. Most studies from 1915 through to the 1950s maintained that the majority of dreams were in black and white, but results started to change in the 1960s. Today only 4.4 per cent of the dreams of under-25 year-olds are in black and white. Recent research suggests the changing results may be linked to the switch from black-and-white film and TV to colour media.
