I need feminism because….

What the actual fuck, Medieval Times.

Wenching is a very important job.

If you value women almost exclusively as sex objects/domestic servants and place women with theoretical unparalleled political and socio-economic power on the same level as young errand boys, yeah, real fucking “important.”

This chunk of novelty glass clearly presents women’s value to male society as decreasing based on how much power their title has. Gross, gross, gross.

I don’t think they’re putting queens on the same socio-economic power level as errand boys. I think it’s one of those novelty glasses that are supposed to say “this is how much this person would drink.” Kinda like this:

The joke being that a single drink for Ernest Hemingway is 10 times as much as a single drink for Henry David Thoreau.

I believe those glasses are suggesting that the only women who can keep up with a king’s drinking is a wench. And the queen is at the bottom because they aren’t expected to get drunk publicly. It indicates that the ability to get drunk and act bawdy is a trait to be applauded for men while reviled for women. So…yuck.

Yo, it’s not literally saying “queens are on the same socio-economic level as page boys.” It’s saying it between the lines: regardless of “levels of drunk/drinking” contexts, it is literally depicted as a hierarchy. It is deliberately choosing “medieval times” cliches that cast women in historically infantilized positions –– what, were there no Ladies? Just maidens? Our idea of gender roles in history is so flattened by modern chronological snobbery that we can only imagine women to be whores, virgins, and passive observers/servants unless they’re fucking royalty. In times before the two-sex model even existed. Lmao, that’s just so absurd to me. The whole construction of male and female on these things goes beyond who can drink and how they’re regarded for it –– it’s broader than that. Far broader.

There’s a ton of shit to unpack over these stupid glasses, and that doesn’t even touch on the industry that produces the glasses nor the way Medieval Times runs its narrative.

Whoa, I was completely agreeing with you! I wasn’t trying to DEFEND the damn things.

Jean Tinguely on ‘Art’

"In 1960, the Swiss artist Jean Tinguely made the first of his self-destructive machine sculptures, Homage à New York, which battered itself to pieces in the Sculpture Garden of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.”

So here’s an interesting factoid: the cinematographer for Girls Town (1959) was the same guy who shot Psycho (1960).

My question is…what the hell happened?

I think all adults who play nintendo ds should definitely carry them around at all times your ds will make you friends

I think the Streetpass Puzzle Piece mini-game was deliberately designed to torture people with OCD.

Now this is a nice idea for Supergirl’s outfit: a skirt over a leotard. It would definitely make the inevitable up-skirt shots during, *ahem*, “battle scenes,” less creepy. I also like the idea of Kara wearing bicycle shorts under her skirt. But I think the leotard idea works really well, too.
