It’s time to think critically about why we keep placing the responsibility of preventing sexual assault on its victims instead of holding perpetrators accountable.
Does the roofie-detecting nail polish protect women? Yeah. But it’s a bandaid, not a cure.
We’re funny, okay?
THIS IS EXCELLENT except I have to disagree with one point: Jane Austen wouldn’t be hella annoying on social media - she’d just be trolling all the time.
Hemingway would also have some major MRA backers probably. He wouldn’t be one (he’d just be a regular misogynistic bastard) but his followers would be harassing anyone who called it out.
Faulkner has no use for twitter and his blog posts are interminable.
Robert Frost’s Instagram tho.
And Poe and Lovecraft trying to outdo each other with Two-Sentence Horror Stories.
And Elizabeth Bishop, Emily Dickinson, and Sylvia Plath deliberately trolling MRAs.
And Polidori would tag “@DevilEnglishman” in every. Single. Post, trying to start a twitter war in the hopes of gaining followers.
yeah, but the Brontes…just…totally commenting all over Jane Austen’s tumblr to snipe at her, taking offense at Northanger Abbey, writing passionate defenses of gothic romances and hardcore feminist diatribes.
Keats writing love letters in anonymous asks on Fanny’s tumblr. Forgetting to hit the anon button one time. Keats and Fanny Skyping every second of every day. People trying to tempt Keats and Fanny away from their computers, so they install Skype on their phones and continue.
John Donne posting scathing remarks on ironies and inconsistencies in government.
Yeats photoshopping fairies into all his nature instagrams and claiming them as real. He’d have an incredibly hipster blog except for the times he uses it as a platform to cry over Maud.
George Eliot posting daily 2k tirades and holier-than-thou proper comportment lessons. You really want to hate her but you just respect her too damn much.
"I don’t wear makeup so I don’t have to waste like an hour in front of the mirror every morning hahahaha"
"open books not legs"
"why have tequila shots when you can have tea?"
"As always, late with Starbucks"
"modest is hottest"
"I’m not like those girls”
