if i ever met a genie i wouldnt wish for a million dollars id wish that whenever i bought something i’d always have the right amount of money to pay for it in my pocket
you are one of the great thinkers of our time
I demand you 👑 to #love me! ❤️ #Lavinia #Shakespeare
Okay most context free Shakespeare quotes I ignore but this is some toxic shit. The dude who says this, Demetrius, goes on to rape and mutilate Lavinia because he and his brother Chiron feel this amount of entitlement to Lavinia’s body. This isn’t some antiquated thing from Shakespeare’s time, this is rape culture. This is dudebros chanting “No means yes, yes means anal” This is men thinking that ‘No’ means ‘Convince me.’ This is removing consent by dismissing it as unimportant. This is unacceptable.
