Ada, 25, France.
Currently reading Le Blé en herbe (Ripening Seed) by Colette.
my question really is what possessed this guy to write this book. I guess he thinks he’ll make tons of money?! or what?
You know, I think about it a lot. I don’t know anything about him and I’ve never met him, but I wonder who he is. (I don’t want to ask him because I’m sure in his head he’d be like “this female has read my words and now that she knows I’m an alpha male she wants to offer herself to me.”) I used to think he was very young and frustrated (the Nice Guy/brony/”friendzone” type). As I read more and more of his work, though, I think he’s older and really invested in sharing his vision of the world.
He doesn’t know how to build a sentence, or a paragraph, or a chapter, so he obviously doesn’t read a lot. And so, I think he has no idea that everything he writes has been written before by more articulate people. I think he’s writing this because he sincerely believes that this his “findings” must be unveiled to the public. It’s his ignorance of everything that’s ever been written (coupled with his obvious misogyny) that allows him to think there are enough “desperate” women to buy his self-published book and make him rich. I want to punch him in the face but I also feel sorry for him.
I don’t know about other English-speaking cultures, but in Britain thick means dim, slow, a bit stupid. So I quite like the fact that the video for Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines features his surname as a hashtag in giant red letters. It’s like he’s misspelling an insult to himself. Flashing up #THICKE on the screen, he might as well include #STUPIDE #MORONE #IDIOTE #BRAINLESSE WANKERE
