“The fact that it´s difficult to talk to someone who you´re in love with is brilliantly highlighted in the etiquette of Austen´s period, where you actually, physically, weren´t allowed to talk to them alone, except for when you´re dancing. That´s the only time you were alone. So to be able to use those dances in that way was a great way of forming collisions between the characters.”
(Joe Wright, Director)

The goddamn FBI is investigating nudes being leaked but we couldn’t even get them to stomp out crooked cops tear gassing citizens for protesting.
Omg look at petas response
Holy shit what the fuck burn them omg
so when we say fuck PETA you know where we’re coming from
When it comes down to it, considering the fact that they kill most of the animals they’re “saving”, they objectify women in most of their ads, and they don’t give a shit about POCs being harmed for their food, the only population PETA cares about is white American vegan men. That’s funny - sounds like almost everyone else.

Birth was one of the few things that men were not present for throughout most of European history. While there would have been a male doctor present for Elsa and Anna’s birth, the queen would have been surrounded by her ladies in waiting. For poor women, middle class women, and some elite women, the birth of their child would have consisted of only women relatives, friends, and midwives until really the 20th century but you did start seeing men involved with births (and fucking it up cause that is what they do) starting in the 17th century in Europe. You didn’t really see men involved in birth in the US until well into the 19th century with the rise of gynecology and even then, most women didn’t trust male doctors. Male docotors had a higher rate of problems (still births, birth complications, etc) than midwives did. By the 20th century with the rise in hospitals and better health care (kind of), you started seeing women having birth in hospitals but many women today still choose to give birth at home or with midwives.
The rant was brought on because it reminded me of my favorite Renaissance painting Birth of Mary - by Domenico GHIRLANDAIO.
I actually think part of the higher rate of complications with (male) doctors was because they tended to be called in for higher-risk births. In particular, if the baby wasn’t going to be able to get out alive and some kind of horrible, life or death procedure was needed, everyone felt better for a man to be making the decisions. Midwives who “lost the baby” would come under suspicion in the way that a male doctor (usually) would not — and sometimes the baby was going to be lost.
Yes and no. While men did come in for higher-risk births, there were plenty of midwives who knew how to handle them. Midwives for centuries were the ones involved with birth and new how to handle high-risk pregnancies/births. However, also simple things like remembering to wash your hands most male doctors didn’t do until the 19th century. Whereas midwives would.
