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.
Today I obtained:
1. A complete, fully illustrated Anderson’s tales from 1934.
2. A beautiful antique teacup from 1920 for A DOLLAR
3. Some lovely items that will make a lovely gift for someone (who will read this and have to deal with not knowing)
4. Watermelon rock candy, which is really the coolest part.

”I need a bear for my cosplay. You need a what? A bear. 5 years, an exotic pet license, and 15,000 dollars later we get this. Dedication…”
that’s a fucking bear
we should talk more about how ‘macaroni’ in 18th century england was used to mean ‘fashionable’ because a bunch of rich young dudes went to italy and really liked the stuff there
language is weird
humans are weird
WELL THAT’S ONE FUCKING LIFELONG MYSTERY SOLVED
Your first time is NOT supposed to hurt
You are NOT supposed to bleed
If you bleed, that is NOT your hymen being ‘popped’, it is a tear due to lack of sexual arousal and natural lubrication.
This is all a MYTH perpetrated by men so they don’t have to make sure you are comfortable and sufficiently aroused enough before you have sex with them. It is an excuse to disregard and hurt you.
I just really want women to know this.
I absolutely cannot wait for autumn.
