Giles gets knocked down
last night i accidentally made this piece of garbage and i can’t stop laughing
This is, literally, the greatest video ever made in the history of the world.
Based on this (x). Conclusion: they’re still fuckers.
Or maybe daddy works all week to provide us money for food and clothes
Because daddy’s labour is arbitrarily placed at a higher value and the work he does all week is no more important or legitimate than domestic labour. The capital value of the same relative labour is dependent on the gender of the person its performed by, and the capital values of different, specific kinds of labour, are dependent on the gender of the person who usually performs them in a society. The work easily available to women is priced cheap or free, and the work women have to struggle harder to get is still worth less capital than that same work when performed by men.
In short, daddy gets to choose what he gets to work on, and the job he gets to choose can easily generate more than enough money to feed and shelter more than one person. In this scenario, women still have to do work, but are often forced to depend on others to support them, let alone able to consider supporting others with their labour.
In some cases, men might actually prefer their wives to do even less in terms of domestic labour, because it will be a symbol of conspicuous leisure, which is the mark of status. Women doing no work at all only happens if daddy has so much money and power that he wants to show it to people by how he can support a family with even less work on their part.
A society directing women to be dependent on men, who like their women that way, is definitively a patriarchy, and the division of labour between men and women continues to reinforce gender inequality even today.
Hopefully you can see more of the repercussions of EXACTLY WHAT WAS IMPLIED IN THE ORIGINAL POST now.
oh, please, please, please read this commentary because this person was kind enough to give y’all a free lesson on gender roles WRT domestic work/work in a capitalist society since we, in America, live in a masculine society in terms of work and values.

she needed a push, like you, to see that surviving isn’t living.
This is how my mother wanted to be remembered. My memory of her is… a little bit different. I’m sure everyone remembers their own version of her. Versions I wouldn’t even recognize. It’s all that’s really left of someone when they’re gone. But that’s the tricky thing. Nobody’s memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place and another. And it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. It’s just like my mother used to say:
The carousel never stops turning.

I’m kind of shocked by how many people say season 5 was their favorite…
like idk but season 5 had some really amazing and epic episodes and the writing was still great bUT they slaughtered Emily’s character (and Richard’s kinda slipped too) and they made Luke look really dumb and Rory was…
Season 5 is fourth on my list (2, 3, 4, 5, 1, 7, 6) mainly because like you say it has a lot of really strong episodes. I love Wedding Bell Blues, Say Something, the first few episodes are great also. I think the problems with season 5 lie in the direction the show takes. Basically towards the end of the season, Rory because so out of character and unlikeable. I completely think that it’s possible for her to get lost but as this downturn started way back in season 4 with her crushing on a married Dean, by season 5 you kinda want to tell her to grow up and stop being so selfish. The thing with Rory is that she literally gets everything handed to her. Yes she works hard for her grades but her Grandparents have paid for Chilton and Yale. I know there are conditions and Rory doesn’t act spoiled in seasons 1-4 but by season 5, she IS acting entitiled. And that’s mirrored in her relationship with Logan. And then her complete and utter downfall when Mitchum makes a stupid comment about not having what it takes. Anyway, basically my point is the reason why season 5 is great is because of the individual episode storylines but the reason why it sucks is because it solidifies Rory’s downfall and makes her completely unlikeable.
It’s also what Amy then did with season 6 with Luke and Lorelai’s characters. Basically Amy gets bored and then decides to write her characters into oblivion :)
