10 Conversations About “Sex And The City” You Are Officially Banned From Having Ever Again

Sex and the City” first appeared on TV in 1998, but the volume of conversations we’ve had about the show make it seem like it’s been on for decades. Include the movies — like “Sex and the City 2,” which appears in theaters on May 27 — and it feels like centuries.

Or maybe it just seems that way because we’ve had the same tired old conversations for years now. Are you a Carrie, Miranda, Samantha or Charlotte? Is it good for women? Is it bad for women? Someone bludgeon me with a stiletto, please!

After the jump, the 10 conversations about “Sex and the City” you are henceforth officially banned from having. (And yes, this decree is very strict and highly enforceable!)

  1. Is “Sex and the City” bad for women?
  2. Are you a Carrie, Miranda, Samantha or Charlotte? And why do you continue to play this game when you know whoever ends up as Miranda is going to be pissed?
  3. Being single in New York City, your life must be just like “Sex and the City”!
  4. Their clothes look stupid and ugly.
  5. Their lives aren’t realistic because no one has a one-bedroom apartment like that/newspaper columnists couldn’t afford to buy even one pair of Manolo Blahniks/et cetera.
  6. Is “Sex and the City” feminist?
  7. The name necklace/flower pin/tutu trend that Carrie started was HORRIBLE!
  8. They’re soooo materialistic. Oh my God, all they care about are shoes and bags and dresses … ugh!
  9. Carrie should have married Aidan/never should have married Big/was right to leave Aidan/should not have married Big after he left her at the altar/should have stayed in Paris with Aleksander Petrovsky.
  10. They’re all sluts!
