That’s what people never understand: They see us hard little pretty things, brightly lacquered and sequin-studded, and they laugh, they mock, they arouse themselves. They miss everything. You see, these glitters and sparkle dusts and magicks? It’s war paint, it’s feather and claws, it’s blood sacrifice.

Why Jacob Clifton's Pretty Little Liars Recaps Were Basically the Best Thing The Internet Had to Offer
  • Cousin Nate:Sadly, Nice Guys—also, often, Crazy People—are so into their own stuff that they don't really see you at all, just the stuff they're projecting onto you. So vague girls like you, and flighty artsy girls like Maya, are the two kinds of person that most often become Dream Girls to us. It doesn't matter if you say no or how hard you Friend-Zone me, because I wasn't listening to you before and I'm certainly not going to listen now, so at the most what you're doing is dicking me around and/or being a bitch. But because I put you on this pedestal, it seems to myself and sometimes even other people that I'm being a feminist, or at least I'm not a misogynist, when the truth is that I am a worse thing, which is a person so consumed by his own self that he honestly thinks women are objects put on this earth to carry his psychological burdens, and has never known a person he didn't demonize or divinize in this way. It's kind of like being Neo in the Matrix, except you're the only real person.
  • Emily:Oh my god, that's terrible! Are you some kind of horrifying space-age monster?
  • Cousin Nate:No, I am most guys.
  • Emily:So you killed Maya because she didn't play along with your weird fantasy that she was in love with you?
  • Cousin Nate:You're not listening. It didn't matter if she was in love with me, because I didn't need a cosigner. I was in love with her. The end.
  • Emily:Are you sure this isn't a deep psychological problem specific to you?
  • Cousin Nate:No. I promise you this is how most guys are. Especially under 25. We are socialized to feel entitled to everything—it makes us feel good when we get things—and you are socialized to constantly give away everything—it makes you feel good to give things—and when you add those things up, it's real easy to see how the Madonna/Whore complex became what it is today.
  • Emily:I hate the things I learn on this show.

nothing can kick me in the teeth quite like those posts that are essentially “here is a woman doing a really cool thing! what a cool thing! isn’t it great that this woman is doing this cool thing in the world?”

and then someone has added a comment to the effect of “AND she is traditionally attractive/feminine doing it!”

nothing quite reinforces that doing cool things is not enough, but that you must also look good doing it, like those posts
