Hey, literature folks. Have y'all noticed that people are using kennings again? I mean, sea pancake, danger noodle, sea roomba. 

How’s that different from describing the sea as the whale-road or gannet’s bath? 

THIS IS SO FUCKING AWESOME. I love kennings.

- Kylo Bean on twitter

​What’s really cool is that these kennings accomplish nearly the exact opposite of classical kennings. Sea Pancake and Danger Noodle and Sea Roomba function as familiarizers or diminutives—they make the actual thing seem friendlier and more local.

Classic kennings like Whale-Road and Gannet’s Bath function as a way to make the mundane and normal more epic and dramatic and cool…


It’s crazy how the same device, with thousands of years of separation, are used for nearly opposite purposes!

Part of me wants to burst into a speculative lecture on the secondary orality of internet culture, and part of me wants to point out that kennings were never really gone (eye candy? couch potato? sleeping policeman?) and now I’m torn between the two

Fun fact: anxiety/panic attack symptoms and female heart attack symptoms? Really fucking similar from description! It’s delightful! Thinking you may be having a heart attack doesn’t make panic worse at all!

“why can’t female heroes kick arse in heels” because it’s not practical and will literally snap your damn ankle you can scream weaponised femininity all you want but first off, you need to admit that they’re not an almighty symbol of empowerment, and secondly that if you do a job with a lot of physical activity in heels you’re risking your own safety. all these women fighting in heels on tv are going to end up seriously injuring themselves. 

weaponised femininity is a concept made up in an attempt to get us to embrace the industries created to hold us back/profit from our insecurities so that we can continue to fit into the male expectation of what a woman should be and not question why we are forced to spend thousands on our appearance every year

just a small anecdote. I had a friend who worked in theater; she was the stage manager and an actress came to her in tears one day because the director absolutely refused to let her do a choreographed fight scene in less than 3 inch heels because “they’re platforms so you’ll be okay.” My friend, who is a woman’s size 10, brought her own heels in the next day and DEMANDED the director put them on and try the choreography before the actress did it. He finally agreed to change it, without putting the heels on.

so like I know you might think of “all those women on tv fighting in heels” as fictional woman who WOULD hurt themselves in real life, but its fiction so its okay…except those women are portrayed by real actresses who are actually fighting in actual heels, being directed by dudes who have never worn a pair of heels in their lives, alongside men who aren’t expected to constantly wear things that make their stunts 2x more dangerous than they have to be. Just a thought.

Men take “let’s see feminine women being badass” to mean “let’s see women impractically focused on their appearance in combat situations.“

That’s why I loved Black Panther even more Nakia took off her heels and used them as weapons and was running and driving around barefoot in that one scene

A number of stuntwomen have spoken out about getting injured on sets because the character is wearing heels and skimpy clothing that provide no protection or padding. It literally harms rl women.

https://amp.theguardian.com/film/2016/jun/29/why-stuntwomen-are-in-more-danger-than-men

The only way I wanna see a women fight with heels is if she takes them off and fights with them a la Mulan/Nakia style.

sorry i can’t hear the noise of male entitlement over the sound of Evangeline Lilly and every other woman sighing in frustration

They photoshopped the heels onto wonder woman. Not even Gal Gadot could fight in them, but it was so important to The Look™ that they frame by frame added them. Gal wore flats to the red carpet in protest.

My high school had a dress code that required skirts and pantyhose/tights for girls. Our male gym teacher insisted ten minutes was more than enough time to change after gym class. We asked him if he’d ever tried to put on pantyhose over sweaty/damp legs. He tried it. Took 45 minutes. Two things changed: all-male school board changed the dress code for girls to include dress pants, and our gym change time increased to 20 minutes. Men literally have no frame of reference for their privilege and misogyny and need to be schooled.

“Weaponized femininity” with the current definition is so stupid. I’d like to see reasonable weaponized femininity. Hair clips that can double as throwing knives, clutches that can be transformed into shields, wearing dresses both for the look and for the added range of motion. None of this “Fighting in 5 inch heels” or “Stupidly tight spandex that you can’t move in but still Looks Good.”

Anybody out there advocating for “weaponized femininity” needs to be advicating for practicality and safety as well

I’ve seen people ask the original question and it’s such a bad question. Like, why don’t female Olympians compete in heels? Why don’t women with very physical jobs wear stilettos to work? Oh, because it’s dangerous and makes everything harder? Ohhhhh.

No matter how good of a fighter you are, you’re not going to make fighting harder for yourself on purpose if it’s potentially life-or-death. You’re gonna fucking wear sensible shoes.
