Get a load of these pricks!
apart frmt he photographs and the blog and the internet they use and the publishers she uses to publish her books and the roads she uses to ride her stupid fucking bike fuck YOU Sarah A. Chrisman!
Being a smug twee cunt isnt being non-conformist.
not sure if dongs is consciously siding with the SJWs here but comparing this hobby to being trans or otherwise in an actual minority has drawn a lot of ire...
I'm not on anyones side cos no-ones on mine
They know the world is a cruel place for anyone who doesn't fit into the dominant culture.
She lives a victorian lifestyle so won't have access to to the internet?
I thought it was Moker :D
Much of modern technology has become a collection of magic black boxes: Push a button and light happens, push another button and heat happens, and so on.
In the process, they crush their own dreams.
Yeah, I'm talking about your wife (unless she is Canadian).
Gabriel crafted a cast-iron telegram printing press (from original source materials!!!!) and painstaking reproduced a blog-like parchment. Sarah then hand-delivered said parchment after crossing America on her hand-made, bespoke tricycle surviving on nothing but plum jam and the ol' fashioned kindness of strangers.
i'm sure they're alright people really, i mean they aren't blowing people up or anything (at least they weren't in the pictures)
but there's something kind of charming about those photos.
my hot take: they CLEARLY have a corset fetish - it all started over a corset - and this is shot through with sex stuff, but they're not copping up to it.
otherwise it's basically harmless but I think her writing style make her seem much more obnoxious? like it's very easy to get the idea they think doing this makes them better than most people, and she previously compared it to being trans, and etc etc
One person misinterprets something, the next exaggerates it, a third twists it to serve an agenda, and so on. Going back to the original sources is the only way to learn the truth.
knew some folk who were super into doing this with the regency period, mainly as an excuse for roleplay sex stuff, and - yup, turned out they were a bunch of misogo tories almost to a man and woman. so that's probably awful too
at least she doesn't get to vote!
I wonder if she'd rip her hair off with tar if she got nits to retain the autheticity?
and *all* of it is about the underwear, as if people haven't asked about way more stuff and way more interesting stuff than that.
I missed the one about the cleaning products and the one about books, whoops. but the FAQ should be huge, right? and it's almost all underwear chat
quite a few of the questions she seems to get are people who are interested in the fashion aspect of her "research". Which to be honest makes far more sense to me than the neo-luddite lifestyle part.
I believe in you
fine, if you just like dressing up and reading old books, knock yourself out, who am I to judge how you spend your time. But don't pretend like there's some moral learning experience bound up in using sealing wax on a fucking letter, you're not being a better human being just because you're wearing a waistcoat. It's like that Soylent twat who said he'd given up on alternating current (or in other terms, outsourced his shitty consumerist consumption).
their way of life and a more modern consumer lifestyle. It's not to say one is necessarily better than the other, more that if you're deliberately living in a way that is more directly connected to the resources you're consuming it does give you more of an appreciation for them.
but you'd want to say it pretty differently to how she has, I think.
(apparently they're likely doing better than most of us for heat, but much, much worse for light)
just different stuff.
this is totally you projecting dude
you are projecting YOUR corset fetish on THEM
I'll cop to a lot but honest to god, it does nothing for me
if people want to lead a different life thats fine
its when they go online to tell people all about it when it just screams 'look at us'
pretending this is serious research
ok look clearly I think they're massive bellends, can't pretend to be evenhanded any more
who used to dress in Victorian/Georgian style, like all the time, on the bus or going to work. It fascinated me, I always wanted to ask her about it, she looked so different. Fair play to her I say, I didn't get the impression it was some hipster affectation either.
I remember a programme a few years back about people like this who lived 'retro' lifestyles often 40's or 50's and as they were interviewed it was often relieved that they'd had some sort of trauma or bad upbringing that made them want to retreat from the modern world into what they saw as a more simpler/comforting era. Pretty interesting.
she might be a ghost!
how is it any worse than you indie waist-coat wearers who go to whetherspoons and post on an internet forum about how much better your taste in music is?
Modern commentaries on the past can get appallingly like the game "telephone": One person misinterprets something, the next exaggerates it, a third twists it to serve an agenda, and so on.
(not really, obv)
What do they do when they're ill? Take Victorian medicine? Or when going on holiday? A steam boat to Crete?
Seems all a bit fruitless to be but each to their own. I guess the guy gets to wear some pretty ace threads.
