@'riel YES! I was going to say I need that punching guy in my life, except instead of "do the dishes" he should say "write your thesis!" >:(
<3 this and the last piece about women writers. Yep. Also a fan.
@Judith Slutler Woah perfectly said! I want to memorise this paragraph.
@Judith Slutler oh my god WEAR A HELMET. I live in Vietnam and I'm telling you, *no one* wears a helmet to ride a bicycle. I do! I do everyday! You want to know why? It's a horrible, true story. My friend, who went to the same school as me, was living in Vietnam also and she was drunk and not wearing a helmet and involved in an accident and is *now mentally handicapped for life*.
I seriously wish I was making this up.
Wear a helmet wear a helmet wear a helmet oh my goddds.
@ohmy My current helmet says "CHASE AGONISTIC" on it and has a little brim for the sun. I don't think the brilliant humour of this helmet was intentional, as I live in Vietnam and quite often random long words are printed on things. So great.
@Rhode Island Red Thanks for sharing that, and I think it has EVERYTHING to do with feminism. I'm sick of 'academic feminists' who think knowing theory is what feminism is. It isn't knowledge, it's a practice.
Woah we had the same high school experience (Out of Africa + the English Patient). Also, I recently re-re-watched Out of Africa and I would also like to note: MERYL's WARDROBE. Like, even look at the buttons. Look at anything. It's all PERFECT.
