Re: Orwell: A Critical Revaluation due... ?

I am becoming progressively more infuriated with this book. Last 2 chapters I have read concerned lesbianism (which went exactly as I predicted in my previous post. What a dumpster fire of a chapter. "The lesbian is characterized simply by her refusal of the male and her preference for feminine...

Re: Gothic Horror Tropes!

Hi Alex, I don’t know off the top of my head if there exists an English translation of her letters; however, I have several contacts I will tap and see if any of them are able to direct me to what we are looking for. I read her letters in a university library a decade ago. No shame in being a monogl...

Think white as in “white goods” rather than “white skin” (although white skin is also a significant factor in all of this). It pisses y...

Re: Euthanasia: When and If

When we put people in jail, society gets the satisfaction of enacting a punishment or retaliating against a criminal. Western society loves to punish and control. So yes it costs us (dearly and in various ways) to imprison people, but there is a dark satisfaction received from doing so. That's why w...

Re: Orwell: A Critical Revaluation due... ?

Absolutely with you re: hating the hell out of Sartre. I don't like the man, don't like his politics, don't like his prose, don't like that he was a narcissist predator. Sartre is a great example of what the youths call "main character syndrome". His conception of "bad faith" and...

Re: Gothic Horror Tropes!

You could potentially get away with having a female character with a strong sense of morality..if she was wealthy/aristocratic. I was immediately reminded of this woman as I was reading your post. Belle overwhelmed European society at the time with her originality and caustic power, frightened all h...
