    Wow, I really enjoyed “Pride and Predators,” a look at sexual predators through the lens of Pride and Prejudice. It gives me a nice grip on that topic and has an abrupt twist ending (which I can’t say is a surprise).

    The beauty standards are bullshit video really resonated with me. I remember in high school girls would talk incessantly about their bodies’ imperfections, how fat they were, and what they would and would not eat. It was so incredibly inane but also damaging, and I refused to participate. And indeed, this refusal led to a lot fewer conversations for me! Why do we do this? Don’t we have anything better to think about than whether our asses are just the right size?

    • Debbie M Says:

      I know, right? All the sizes are good! I do like conversations about where to find clothing that fits various sizes and shapes, though.

    I love the (many) articles I’ve read that see “Pride and Prejudice” through modern eyes. Relatedly, my daughter wrote a paper in college that did the same for “Jane Eyre.” Because Mr. Rochester addressed Jane as “My child” she decided he was a pedophile rather than an older man condescending to his own child’s youthful governess. Maybe she was right?

      I never understood why #2 was so into Mr. Rochester. (I’ve always been more of a Mr. Darcy person myself… or really Mr. Bingley, but a Bingley more able to stand up to Darcy… enh, actually, give me a modern cinnamon bun hero!)
