    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : Not at all, just explaining why I mentioned gay people in that thread. I dont' know how you feel about us, I haven't seen anything to give me the impression you have an issue with me because of that part of me. So thanks for asking before making that assumption. Sorry if my post was unclear, I'm now juggling flames. That would be sweet if I could do that literally, while on a unicycle.

    Okay, good.  I'm glad I asked before flying off the handle.  I disagreed with your approach in that particular instance (and I am definitely not on board with the Harry Potter hate!  :p), but I don't have an issue with you as a person, much less as a gay person.

    Over the years, I've found that my heterosexuality is inversely proportional to the amount of Malibu I've consumed, so I'm not sure I'd have a leg to stand on anyway.

    Posted by AllAboutTheBenjamin[/QUOTE]

    I wonder how popular her opinion re: animals is. It seems very 19th century - dogs not allowed in the bed because animals are dirty and gross. Animals are animals, and totally not at all like children/not part of the family. I've certainly never heard anyone around here say that. And if they did, it was someone who didn't actually own any pets and just said they had no desire to have pets. It's very sad when someone like that owns an animal.

    Who was it who had in-laws who wanted to adopt a cat from a shelter and throw it in the barn? It's like that to me. Growing up I had a friend who lived on a working farm and some of the animals were just... farm animals, including the barn cats. Which took me a long time to understand, because our pets were family.

    I mean... I'ma  vegetarian and I know some CRAZY people who think that there's no difference between people and animals and compare killing cows to the Holocaust, which, frankly, I find really offensive. Yes, there's a difference, and if I had to pick one, I'd choose a human life over an animal life. But there's a world of difference between that and classifying animals in the same area as basically decorations. Not to mention, she was using her yet-unconceived children to justify why she hated the dog and wanted it to die.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    I don't really view them the same no. I don't know if it's because they were written in a different time, or if I give the anti-feminist plots a pass because of the writing. You've stumped me. My lit background says defend Austen, my women's studies background says tear her apart. Confusion.

    I would actually argue that books like Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre are much less anti-feminist than Twilight. At least the heroines of those books are intelligent and witty women who work within the gender paradigms of their time to develop relationships with their eventual husbands that are based on mutual respect.

    Yes! I love you!

    Jane Austen was also pretty adamant about depicting reality. She only writes about her own class and about female characters, for the most part, and their motivations. She was early proponent of "write what you know." I can't blame her for living in British society 200 years ago. Not her fault!

    Agreed.  I think I meant more that since at the time women were basically second class citizens, I would assume that feminists would have an issue with the books that portrayed that.

    On a side note, I'd like to see marriages replaced by civil unions for everyone, across the board.  Leave marriage purely ceremonial and let religions set whatever rules they want for defining it -- even discriminatory ones, since religious institutions are private organizations and have that right.  But at the same time, let the state recognize civil unions for same- and opposite- sex couples alike.  Divorce (no pun intended) the legal and moral issues and be done with it. 

    The way things stand, civil union != marriage and separate != equal.

    I hope this doesn't happen. This just makes a religion ghetto rather than a gay ghetto. I want to be married, not unioned, and I couldn't be under that scenario because I'm an atheist.

    Wouldn't it be nice to live together in the kind of world where we belong?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Air your Grievances! : I think anyone who feels that way would be taking a grossly uncomplicated view of things. Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters worked with what they had, and got their points across in the best ways that they could. I can't think of a specific passage in Austen, but Jane Eyre has a whole part that starts out "Women feel as men do" and goes on and on about how it's ridiculous that women are expected to sit around and do embroidery and wait for things to happen. A corresponding example in my field is an American painter, Lilly Martin Spencer. There are lots of people who dismiss her because all she painted were these cutesy pictures of children, but I'd argue that she was working with what she knew, and that her career was pretty remarkable.

    Agreed.  I wasnt trying to compare the 2.  I love Austen and would never put SM in the same category.  But I am a fan of both authors.  For different reasons.
