Stuff has a story from AAP about the general suckiness of V Day:
The rosey day has an evil side too, according to those who say it's nothing but an excuse to sell cheesy cards, naff gifts and cheap chocolate.
The anti-Valentine's brigade says it is a day of obligation rather than celebration, and one that puts pressure on fledgling relationships while making the pain of the lovelorn even more acute.
The article goes on to give four reasons (just four?!) to back up their argument, opining V Day's role in our materialist society, how hard it is on the restaurant trade, the stress it puts on relationships, and the evilness of non-fair trade chocolate.
