I need badly to get my hair cut and colored over break but I’ve been avoiding going to a salon because well, because I know if I get it colored and its a bit too orange or brassy I’ll be “eh, just chop it off” and I REALLY WANT TO HAVE A BOB
my dream as a little girl was always that my childhood experiences would wake me up screaming in the middle of the night so when I read the Hunger Games it was sooooooooo great to just like, replace her with ME, I could so easily empathize with katniss and her pretty dresses that made people want to sexually assault her
<333 sady doyle just GETS ME and my selfish wish fulfillment
what does she say? im not really familiar with her
like she is not the most EVIL person in the world but she just writes really shitty annoying pop culture analysis about how girls aren’t supposed to be happy or in love or ever feel insecure if they’re pretty? because it’s problematic or something to be a teenage girl who hasn’t sprung from her organic cruelty-free hand knitted womb with no insecurities.
I was reminded Sady Doyle exists and gets paid $$$ to espouse her truly awful views GSHFH UAGS AGUGHH
When you look to the wish-fulfillment narratives for female protagonists, however—Twilight’s Bella Swann, for example, or The Hunger Games’ Katniss—things get more complicated. These heroines are typically required to not want, or to feel unworthy of, all the fabulous rewards they’re constantly getting. Bella Swann is instantly popular at school, two incredibly gorgeous boys are in love with her, and she eventually becomes wealthy, superpowered and immortal to boot. And yet her first-person narration constantly states that she is a lowly, plain-looking klutz who just doesn’t understand why anybody loves her. In order to get all these rewards—in order to deserve them—the female wish-fulfillment figure needs to believe that she is inherently undeserving.
Similarly, every bit of wish-fulfillment Katniss Everdeen experiences is accompanied by affirmations of how little she wants it. She’s too cool to care about pretty dresses—but all of her dresses are so incredibly pretty that everyone gasps and applauds when they see her, and she continually receives compliments on how gorgeous she looks. Celebrity is stupid and corrupt—but Katniss is the biggest celebrity in Panem, so universally beloved that people start a revolution in her honor. Katniss has nothing but contempt for those snotty, wealthy Career Tributes, who kill people to gain social status—but they all die, and she therefore gains wealth and social status.
— i mean i don’t want to link to it or discuss it but this is one of the more disastrously, comprehensively stupid readings of the hunger games that i have ever encountered.
