pride and prejudice wasn't written as a resistance to the patriarchy djdjfhdhsj what

i mean i’ve been staring at this message for a solid minute now pondering how to reply, trying to figure out how ro reply, but honestly it boils down to one question: have you read it?

because literally the prevalent theme of pride & prejudice as well as other works of Austen—perhaps most visibly, sense & sensibility—is the ironic social commentary on the degraded role of women, as subjected and dependent on the way of whether they would marry well as they used to be?

like, honestly, what did you think it was about? sure it has a romance in it, but it’s probably one of the the most politically designed and carried out romantical arcs in literature, as it relies not so much on mutual affection, but rather darcy aknowledging his fault of diminishing elizabeth as an intelligent human being. at first, we see him as quite obviously set upon taking her for granted and applying stereotypes; startled with her outspoken attitude and clueless as to why she would reject him. because it IS surprising, that’s the point, given the context of Austen’s novel, the commonly praised choice would be to accept not only darcy, but mr collins without another thought. what do you think is the reason mrs bennet was so distraught all the time? there was no way of securing the future of her daughters other than marriage, we hear it being repeated over and over again—they cannot inherit their father’s fortune.

and—good grief. that’s the romantic ‘main plot’ concerning darcy and elizabeth alone, because the whole point is that he changes his beliefs and acknowledges elizabeth as an equal in the end. darcy isn’t exceptional for being surly and broody, he’s exceptional because he listens and learns.

but all the rest? the whole arc of charlotte, and her unhappy and dull marriage to mr collins, and the stark contrast with elizabeth. charlotte is not WRONG, she does the only thing she knows for certain will allow her to live in a respectful way without becoming ‘a burden to her parents’. the arc of lydia, basing off her portrayal against wickham? even with all his debt, infamy and faults, wickham’s opinion is at no point more blemished than lydia’s. that’s the point, that’s reiteraring the original notion of the disparity between men and women in regency England. the radiating, stinging paternalistic attitude of mr collins towards elizabeth when he marries charlotte and TELLS her that she would probably get no better chance. his absolute belief—corresponding with darcy’s, and contrasted with the latter’s rehabilitation later on—that elizabeth has no choice but accept him.

and elizabeth herself—for all the composition and impeccable manners, she IS a controversial figure in the novel. take the scene when she’s bashed by lady catherine de bourgh, the ongoing commentary on her being too forward with her opinions, the continuous bashing coming from her mother—the lingering threat that lizzy’s ‘stubbornness’ will cause her much trouble and, above all, prevent her from securing both her and the other sisters from absolute poverty when their father dies.

and, just … of course it’s written subtly, it’s conveyed in elizabeth’s wit, in austen’s slightly ironic narrative. the problem with the situation of women is not EXPLICITLY named and stated. it’s not modern times where we’re accustomed to forward addressing of feminist issues. no: it’s shown. it is not only the consistent theme in her works, it’s the prevalent theme of them. i mean, come on, there’s tonnes and tonnes of books that were NOT written with a purpose of targeting partiarchy. fuck, there are much MORE of such books than there is of the latter kind. But to choose Pride & Prejudice specifically, a novel which became one of the most famous books in the world, renowned for e x a c t l y t h i s … i cannot comprehend. please, at least consider this: do you really think the purpose of austen writing p&p was writing a romance? really? why would it become so much of a literature landmark, then?

i don’t mean to be nasty and honestly, go and have your opinion, you’re perfectly entitled to it, but it does make me sad that a novel that is a witty, outsanding and one of a kind social commentary on the plight of women in a specific time period written by a woman IN the time period is turned into something as common as a novel with a romantic plot. that’s all.

When I'm on my period
  • Me: I'm dying.
  • Me: *Googles "How and where can I donate or get rid off my ovaries and uterus.*
  • Me: Why the fuck do women have to pay for pads, tampons, period panties, diva cups and painkillers? We can't help it! There's money for wars but there isn't any money for pads.
  • Me: Mom take me to the hospital, i need morphine.
  • Me: I'm the chosen one. I bleed but I don't​ perish. Kneel at my feet you petty peasants.
  • Me: Chocolate has no calories during a woman's menstrual cycle.
  • Me: *Lays down on the bed in the fetal position with one of the cats and deals with it.*

  • Dally: Is 'whore' a sexuality? Cause that's what I identify as.
  • Steve: it's a car, dumbass.
  • Sodapop: Auto is the gayest class I have.
  • Two-bit: I wonder if thunder scares itself.
  • Darry: if you don't see me 6th period it's because I'm tried of your crap.
  • Tim: Its called dodge ball you pussies
  • Curly: if I had a dollar for every meme I've tagged someone in...
  • Angela: my salt levels have officially reached the ocean.
  • Cherry: it's smells like balls and sad ass in here.
  • Marcia: I've officially gotten a two for one deal out of every vending machine here.

  • Randy: I need help with *looks down at paper* everything.

anonymous asked:

Cris, I'm confused. So does that quote from Liam indicate that Simon has no matching rights or first right of refusal?

No, it means he didn’t take the last right of refusal. My guess is that Liam let Syco know about the Capitol deal and Syco didn’t respond with a counter offer within the 30/60/90 day period (whatever the contract stipulated), so they lost their shot with Liam.

Maybe it was intentional, maybe it was an oversight, I don’t know, but it was foolish either way.

anonymous asked:

I feel bad that dealing with annoying customers has sometimes taken my mood down to the point where I wasn't even very friendly with the good customers. I had a period when everything bothered me so much that I just had a bad attitude, and I feel bad for the customers who didn't deserve that. I've been working hard to improve and I think I've done a lot better lately. But now I'm training for the department with the neediest & meanest customers in the store and I hope I don't lose that progress.

oh, for fuck sake..!

acrid, stop complaining about your stupid heat! in the grand scheme of things, others have it a lot worse than you do. ever heard of a goddamn period? you may have to deal with uncontrollable cum for a while, but that’s only a temporary deal! girls like me have to deal with painstaking cramps and uncontrollable blood, once a month, for almost our whole lives. so, bitch, shut up and deal with it.

and don’t even think about lashing out at me. i’ll watch my back for the rest of my life, if i have to, but you don’t scare me one bit, acrid!

People seem to forget that Lili really doesn't like parties plus maybe she was invited, but didn't feel good (I guess she's dealing with depression again right now) and since Cole is such a close friend of Debby, I'm sure she didn't want Cole to miss the party

Exactly! I’m 100% she was invited, but as you said - not a party girl and she’s obviously feeling anxious right now. It’s not a big deal for LiliCole that she didn’t go - or that he did attend the party. Debby is his best friend and I’m sure he’s been checking in with Lili. Sometimes you prefer to be alone, I’m in need to be with myself and only myself in periods to clear my head and get back on track. X

I'm 14, and my parents won't let me do any physical transitions, not even blockers or getting a proper binder (they let me get the underworks binding bra but that isnt a true binder). The problem is, it's making me super dysphoric, especially since most boys my age are starting to get lower voices, while I'm left over here sounding like a twelve year old. What can I say to them to help them understand how I feel? They don't seem to get it and keep telling me (pt1)

I’m “too young to make any physical changes.”. The problem is, camp is coming in a few months and I don’t want to have to deal with a period, partially because I’ll feel horribly dysphoric, and partially because I will feel more separated from the other boys. Do you have any ideas of how I might express this issue to them? (pt2)             

Kai says:

You can tell them that a binder isn’t going to change your body in any way, so maybe that will help convince them about that. Regarding blockers: you can go to your doctor / an endocrinologist and they can tell you that it’s basically like a pause button on your current puberty. If you go off blockers, your current puberty will simply resume as it left off, so there are zero permanent changes to your body. If you can find research or articles about how binders / blockers improved trans kids’ mental health with no physical changes, that might help. Try searching online, on YouTube, and I think there might be a National Geographic article about it.

Fuck it, I don't care anymore - I'm taking a stool with me to work. It's my period and I get horrible ass cramps, and I ain't standing no more. Wish me luck!

Wish I could of had more time to sit down last night. T_T But the guys I caretake for last night had a stick up their ass and were very tough to deal with so I was constantly running around for 8 hours. When I got home I curled up into a fetal position until the Aleve kicked in. If I had vodka I seriously would have had a glass or two. Seriously need to get a hysterectomy. I don’t think the amount of cramps I get is even normal. -Abby

anonymous asked:

Sort of a TMI question Is it normal to feel horny during your period? I've noticed a pattern that while I'm normally sex repulsed, I'm much more interested in 18+ things during my period. I dont really know how to feel about it and I cant really ask any of my friends if they experience the same since I'm the only sex repulsed person in our group

Yeah, absolutely. It’s a common symptom, a lot of people experience it including other sex repulsed folk. It’s perfectly fine to be horny and sex repulsed at the same time. A bit annoying for you to have to deal with, but very little about menstruation isn’t also annoying.

anonymous asked:

You are being dramatic? LMAO then let's be dramatic together. I'm also still dealing with eating disorder. It got so bad I didn't have my period for a long ass time and it's still very irregular. And guess how I was? Exactly how Yoongi speaks about eating. I was sending signals the same ways he does. And it really saddens. You remember how he said he could get full just seeing Hoseok eating? I can get full seeing my friend eating a lot, even though I know it's not true deep down. (1/2)

I just wish people could’ve gotten my signals earlier. My mum is the only one who noticed. I don’t think my friends know I had that and that I still do. And Yoongi is the one saying “You shouldn’t lose weight, you’re perfect like that.” If I could meet him, I’d tell him the same. As many times as I could. If that’s being dramatic for some of you guys, I am not sorry at. all. It’s clearly not a healthy choice. (2/2)

Oh, and because of that, I have a very low stamina. I lack iron in my blood and vitamin D. I really hope you guys can see that it’s a real problem. (3/2 i guess lol)

yes that’s what stressed me out so much, how familiar what he was saying sounded.. hugs you i hope you’re better now, love

anonymous asked:

Have you ever thought of doing a Mirror Mirror preform Spock? (If you did I missed it but I just watched that episode and went omg yes so...hello!)

 soooo… since mirror verse essentially happened because humans attacked post-reform vulcans, i would have to think that if we were dealing with pre-reform vulcans the mirror verse would be VASTLY different. Even post reform vulcans were not to be fucked with - so if, as pre-surak, they were inclined to be more bellicose and aggressive, it seems like the natural result of this first contact would be humans and vulcans in a prolonged period of hostility and/or outright warfare. Maybe Spock was then a result of a union attempting to ‘make peace’ between the two peoples - much like historic royal marriages on earth.

  • *i'm opening my backpack*
  • Guy 1: *whispering but I hear him loud and clear* look how many she has.
  • Guy 2: Ew. That's so gross
  • *catching on what they are saying they were talking about my pads and tampons*
  • Me: excuse me but i can hear you, you know? Don't you have sisters or mothers who deal with their periods? Calm down.
  • Guy 1: it's still gross.
  • Me: listen here, someday a girl will ask you if you can buy her feminine products and if you are not up to it to buy them she will leave your weak ass in a second. So stop commenting on how "gross" it is and deal with it.
  • *they both went dead silent and I turned back to the front*
I'm done

Next time I’m on my period and someone asks me what my fucking deal is I’m going to flat out tell them that my uterus is shedding its lining or that I dropped an egg or “congrats I’m not pregnant even though if I was it wouldn’t be yours bc Id never sleep with a dill hole who can’t even tell if a girl is on her period you dumb fuck.” And then they’ll say that’s gross. And I’ll say “well walking around with a pool of vagina blood between my legs for five days is way more preferable than sleeping with you. I am an independent ass bitch. I’m out.”
