mredwardrochester:

i love jane eyre more than anything in this entire god forsaken world she’s the best but idk sometimes she blows stuff out of proportion like there was this one time she got mad at me because I used Blanche Ingram to make her jealous and apparently that’s “rude” and “a terrible awful shitty thing to do to another human being,” and then she, like, freaked the fuck out when my wife snuck into her room the night before our wedding and ripped her veil, and she straight up snuck out in the middle of the damn night after she found out I had a wife???? like come on i wish she would just chillax sometimes lmao

Meanwhile in Florida, the alligators have developed sign making skills.

Clearly those gators made that sign themselves.

The Surprisingly Feminist Fitness Magazine You’ve Never Heard Of

Much of the Physical Culture fare is typical of the health publication genre, but one thing not so common for a magazine launched long before women could vote was its undertones of health feminism. In a 2011 paper published in Media History Monographs titled “The Feminism of Bernarr Macfadden: Physical Culture Magazine and the Empowerment of Women,” author Kathleen L. Endres explores how Macfadden and his editorial team, which included family planning pioneer Margaret Sanger and reform author Upton Sinclair, infused the magazine with physical health-oriented feminist messages. Although Macfadden offered tips on wrinkle removal, preventing gray hairs, keep husbands sexually satisfied and so forth, Physical Culture also railed against corsets and restrictive female clothing, which Macfadden blamed on society’s rampant, anti-woman “prudery.”

Aw!

Game of Thrones is often celebrated, somewhat dubiously, for offering “complex” female characters — who then are killed, objectified, sexually abused, or otherwise stripped, at least in the televised adaptation, of the power and agency that rendered them compelling. Westeros is a man’s world; the women do their best to scheme within that patriarchal domination, but even a trio of dragons doesn’t make them pass the Bechdel Test.

But you know what Outlander has? A woman at its center. That woman, Claire (Caitroina Balfe), is neither hapless nor incompetent.

"Outlander" Is the Feminist Answer to "Game of Thrones"
