“Women are more likely to be attracted to personality and men are more likely to be attracted to physical appearance.”

Woah maybe that’s because we teach women to see men as people and we teach men to see women as objects.

1925

Really tempted to try and translate this. Here, let’s do the beginning:

Paul Marguerite [sic, his name was actually Victor Margueritte], the author of the controversial novel La Garçonne, certainly never thought that he would one day influence fashion. Because he portrays a new type of “woman” in his novel, it’s only right that the fashion that was created for this new species also carry the name of the novel: La Garçonne - the bachelor girl.

I HAVE TO READ THAT. More about the book. It’s apparently also been made into a movie more than once. Though some obsessive googling reveals that the book is almost impossible to find in English. My French isn’t good enough to read the original (which doesn’t actually look much easier to find). I could read a German translation?

Here, have another highlight of this excellent thing:

"Long hair, short understanding," it was always called before. Have the women, since they had their hair cut, also got the masculine understanding?

Now wondering if anyone’s done a study of the ties between women’s rights and hair.

Also, allow me to direct your attention to this Wikipedia page: List of books portraying sexual relations between women.

I see the force is strong with fascinating early-20th-century queer ladies on Tumblr today. I am pleased, very pleased.

This is wonderful! And I’ve been kind of eyeing La Garçonne for a while, too. (I named the lesbian BDSM club where Irene ends up working at the end of “Chez les bêtes" after it.) My French is probably strong enough to read it in the original, and I’m extremely tempted to order a copy of this edition, but man, my to-be-read bookcase is overflowing as it is. Still…. *sits on hands so as not to hit the “purchase” button*

I wish, wish, wish the 1930s film version was still on YouTube. It was… voluptuously gay. There was a lesbian opium den, there was Edith Piaf flirting with ladies, there was a half-naked Suzy Solidor draped in a blanket on the floor with another half-naked lady. And it didn’t even have English subtitles, so I probably missed out on a lot of a fun dialog.

You can learn a bit more about the woman who is credited with popularizing the whole La Garçonne fashion trend here.

If men’s kindnesses toward women were really only kindnesses, a man would be pleased if another man or woman offered these kindnesses to him. He would be pleased if another man or woman lit his cigarette or pulled out his chair for him. He would be pleased to derive his income, prestige, power and even his identity from his partner. He would take pride in another man’s or woman’s offer to walk him to his car at night. But in fact, “one of the very nasty things that can happen to a man is his being treated or seen as a woman, or womanlike.
(Frye 1983, p. 136).”

Yeah!  This reality hit me a few months ago when a teenage boy at work said to another teenage boy, “ladies first!” in order to insult him.  Chivalry is not about respect or kindness.

Draco Malfoy wears his trademark black, high-collared robes here on his holiday to the French coast, where he holds a parasol for his third cousin Celeste Pointilleux, also in black robes. We suspect that given his complexion, Malfoy would quite like the parasol for himself, but he’s acting the gentlemen for his relatives, who have large investments in the potions industry.
