Okay so I know your class is an ethics class, and we are to write an ethics essay, but. You gave me an economic study of an economic phenomenon to evaluate.
I have not written about economics for a semester. I miss working in my major so much.
So you’re gonna get a giant pile of economics with your ethics, because you were the one who assigned an econ study. Not my fault.
Writing this feels so good.

"Allow me to describe all of the stupid, outdated things that are also in the Bible that one would have to follow in order for the ‘the Bible says gays are wrong’ argument to make sense: *lists exclusively things that Jews all over the world still do* And we all know that no one follows those barbaric, backwards rules, so haha checkmate Christians!"
This: stop it. There are much more intelligent ways to argue the history of homosexuality within Christianity and the differences between Christianity and Judaism.

let you waste your wonderful words

(Yes, my room has the E-cow-nomics poster next to the Litograph of The Tempest.)
You know, you’d expect the Shakespeare fandom to be highly intellectual and sophisticated, but in reality, it’s about 50 of us laughing in the corner, making bad puns and sex jokes. I think dear William would have approved.
literally thats all anyone would need to tell me to get me to hate john green
"did you know in one of his books the two main characters make out in the anne frank house"
thats literally making out with someone at a holocaust memorial…
Nope, every visitor in the Anne Frank house applauds them after they kiss. It is glorified as hell.

↳ Artemisia Gentileschi (1593–1656)
A baroque painter and follower of Caravaggio, Gentileschi is widely held to be the most important and accomplished woman artist before the modern period and one of the great artists of the Italian Baroque.
While the few woman painters of the time were largely restricted to domestic scenes and still lifes, Artemisia began, from a young age, to paint large-scale paintings of historical and religious subjects. Her most appreciated works nowadays display Caravaggesque use of chiaroscuro and high drama.
Some of her most famous paintings reflect her interest in depicting mythic-heroic women. These works have been described as proto-feministic in their depictions of their female subjects and in their subversion of the representations of these women typically found in male contemporaries’ works.
Originally tutored by her father, Orazio Gentileschi, Artemisia was raped as a young woman by a friend of her father’s, who had taken over her tutelage. During a high-profile trial in which Artemisia testified against her rapist, she was subjected to humiliation and torture in order to ‘prove’ her claims. Critics have often tied these events in her own life into Gentileschi’s work as an artist, seeing her images of female vengeance, violence and strength as a cathartic and therapeutic representation of Artemisia’s anger and trauma.
