Glad you liked it! And yeah, awkward boner! Made more awkward by the fact that there's an erection on the cover of that book... (it's not very clear/evident but that was definitely my original intent haha)

Oh, lord. I love merlin's expression in this. And the book against his crotch! I thought it was a textbook at first, but then I'm all "Wait a minute..."

:XD: What's your favorite feminist literature? I love anything by Tamora Pierce or Anne McCaffrey, although the latter has a few unfortunate implications.

:iconbarbitone:
barbitone Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012
I absolutely LOVE Tamora Pierce, never read much Anne McCaffrey. Another good feminist series is, though... A Song of Ice and Fire, first book being Game of Thrones. If you haven't read it, it's got an absolutely wonderful set of female characters, all of which are pretty complex, strong, and not stereotypical.
For shows, Firefly is pretty freaking amazing, for the same reasons :)
Any show recommendations?

fujoshianimechick Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Game of Thrones? I'd love to read/watch that one day. And Firefly is also on my list. I have a recommendation for a book: The Mists of Avalon, which was really good, with one major hiccup.
What I liked about it: Showed that Christianity is not necessarily anti-feminist, and the Old Religion isn't necessarily feminist. Both sides of the struggle act like assholes. And then, at the end, Morgan realizes that Christianity and the Old Religion can coexist, and that neither one is necessarily more true than the other. Guinevere's a pretty strong character (in that we know that love/lust isn't all that motivates her and why).
MAJOR COCK-UP ON THE PART OF DIANNA WYNNE JONES: Date-rape of Lancelot being treated as necessary and COMPLETELY OKAY just because it's a woman who does it. Let me explain the situation. Lancelot and Guinevere are being completely and totally obvious with their trysts. Arthur doesn't really mind, he, Guinevere and Lancelot have a threesome to begin with (no, it's Arthur/Gwen/Lancelot, Arthur's not gay, but that would add an extra twist on everything :XD:), but his court is starting to gossip. If the gossip becomes widespread, Arthur could lose credibility as king. So Morgan tries to get Lancelot away from Guinevere and hitched with her friend Elaine, who really wants to get in Lancelot's pants/marry him. If Elaine sleeps with Lancelot, her dad will engineer a shotgun wedding. So Morgan cooks up a really strong aphrodisiac and tells Elaine to feed it to Lancelot, and wear Guinevere's perfume so Lancelot thinks he's sleeping with Guinevere (Elaine is Gwen's cousin, and they have kind of a family resemblance). So Elaine rapes Lancelot when she's disguised as Guinevere, and Morgan has Elaine's dad walk in on them the morning after. :sarcasticclap: Yes, very feminist right there. :facepalm:

Show recommendations: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (really great show, don't turn your nose up at it), Arthur the Aardvark, Daria. I've also heard Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Xena: Warrior Princess are good, although I've never actually seen them. Feministfrequency seems to think they're good, and I trust her opinion.

Sounds like I should go check those out!

And yeah, I've watched the Avatar series (loved both!!!) and once upon a time I watched quite a bit of Xena, too :) The only thing that pisses me off about that is that it's basically a buddy-comedy with ladies... but whereas in a similar situation where the buddies are men (*cough*MERLIN*cough*) everyone's all "noooo they're straight... totally" but when its the ladies for some reason its totally ok to play that aspect up, and have them taking naked baths together and giving each other naked backrubs -_- (and that was just one episode haha)

Here's another one that you probably didn't notice, and, really it's pretty damn obscured by Merlin's hands, but... there's a picture of an erect penis on that book cover in a strategic place ;)
