I am still laughing at the /r/relationships post about the guy who initially wanted an open relationship so he could fuck other women since his girlfriend isn’t hot because she’s “bigger”, but she had much more luck and was even with some muscular hottie who is her type while he had no luck and then he wanted to stop being open
it’s so funny and I’m so glad everyone piled onto him for it
Pagan Pietà. This is breathtaking, and I’d love a print of it.

Monstrous Bodies: Feminine Power in Young Adult Horror Fiction, by June Pulliam, McFarland, 2014. Info: mcfarlandbooks.com.
"Recent works of young adult fantastic fiction such as Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga have been excoriated for glamorizing feminine subordination. However, young adult horror fiction with female protagonists who have paranormal abilities suggests to female readers the possibility of resisting restrictive gender roles that are presented to them as natural and therefore immutable. In this type of fiction, the “monstrous Other” is a double with a difference, a metaphor of the adolescent girl in Western culture who is pressured to embody a doll-like feminine ideal which is untenable because it deprives her of agency. Monstrous Bodies examines three types of female monstrous Others in young adult fiction—the haunted girl, the female werewolf and the witch—and considers what each has to tell us about resistance to feminine subordination in a supposedly post-feminist world, where girls continue to be pressured to silence their voices and stifle their desires in conformity with contemporary ideas about what it means to be a good woman. June Pulliam teaches courses on horror fiction and adolescent literature at Louisiana State University and edits Dead Reckonings: A Review Magazine for the Horror Field and is the author of Encyclopedia of the Zombie. She lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana."
