Venus in Furs is such a great read! It was on the reading list a few years ago for a course I took on interpreting literature through a psychoanalytic lens and it was just so awesome.

i was actually talking about the play venus in fur (no s). but i have read the book by sacher-masoch!

i don’t remember being that thrilled by it so i never completed it. I had a really hard time with the dude who becomes the slave. he never actually seemed satisfied at being the slave; it always seemed that his “domme” didn’t do a satisfactory job of it and he was always criticizing her. 

however, since you actually analyzed it more in depth, maybe you can share some thoughts on it? like i said, i didn’t finish it and I also read it when I was young, so I probably missed a lot. 

ok if you are gonna watch 50 shades of grey (for whatever reason), legally or illegally please also watch venus in fur (there’s a copy of the play with hugh dancy floating around tumblr)

because if the former is about romanticizing an abusive relationship and hinges on people’s curiosity about bdsm, the latter is a fairly smart criticism of the power dynamics in bdsm relationships and how men don’t necessarily respect women as their equals in relationships

there’s also a film version directed by roman polanski. don’t watch that version because fuck that guy

Shout out to all of the brown girls whose first time shaving wasn’t a joyful step into womanhood, but an occasion marked by the shame and grief of coming home from school and begging your mom to let you do it because the kids at school wouldn’t stop pointing and laughing

"The most important keyword to me was ‘train’ and the structure of the narrative reflects that. It’s simple: Curtis travels from the very last section of the train to the front. So the different carriages represent different stages in the story – every time you enter a new car, it’s like a new world that the characters are experiencing." 

– Joon-ho Bong on the design of the train cars.

Fat people do not have to be healthy in order to deserve dignity

Fat people do not have to be healthy in order to deserve dignity

Fat people do not have to be healthy in order to deserve dignity

If I see someone say, “It’s ok to be fat as long as you’re healthy,” one more time I’m gonna lose it. I know this is a crazy radical idea, but how about someone’s health has nothing to do with how you should treat them or how much respect they are deserving of?
