A hilarious review about the horrible Pride and Prejudice ‘sequel’ called Mr Darcy Takes a Wife. It turns Elizabeth into a simpering
fool, Darcy into a murderer, and has far too much sex.
Thought you might be interested.
The article is from last year, so apologies in advance if you already know it. Didn’t know whether to post it here or to What Privilege.
From Sylvia Sybil:
This Christian woman is spending one year living her life as the Bible instructs women to do, in order to illustrate how female-unfriendly the Bible is.
Orson Scott Card published a retelling of Hamlet in which the dead
king was a pedophile who turned everyone gay by raping them. I’m
linking you to my own blog because I’ve already collected half a dozen
links on the subject in that post.
But holy shit. US Justice System.
A Riverside boy allegedly murdered his white supremacist father to stop him physically abusing the boy and his stepmother. This will be an interesting case to follow, since this country largely sides with abusive parents when kids defend themselves or others with lethal force (which is often the only practical defense a smaller, weaker person can bring to bear). Hardly anyone wants to publicly ally with a white supremacist, but just watch – they’ll find a way to frame this as an exceptional case in which the child shouldn’t have the book thrown at him. They won’t recognize that this man’s despicable views are completely irrelevant to whether an abused child has the right to defend himself.
