This is known as "lived experience" among the internet woke, and is not to be criticized.



I've actually read the article previously, of my own free will before this thread was started, thus my comment that I don't get the connection between the author's "men need to be more open with their emotions, but not to women" and "photographers are afraid of feelings, so don't know how to talk about art". While fascination with gear vs. actually using it is an interesting topic, I still don't see the connection to the article. I don't think boring your wife to death with your emotional baggage is the reason photographers like to discuss gear more than art.
