tallulahgs: (Dying a virgin)
The Internet seems confused today. First of all Windows said it couldn't access the Net because it couldn't read my IP address, then the connection shut off for no reason and is now back. Whatever.

Okay, first of all I have something to say that will make one person on my Flist very happy - last night I saw the first five episodes of Ghost In The Shell: Standalone Complex! In general I really enjoyed it; the plots were clever and intriguing, the characters interesting and cool, and the cityscapes and drawings were really beautiful and atmospheric. The only thing I didn't like was the increased fanservice - Motoko so had no reason to wear as her uniform a high-cut bathing suit and thigh-high boots/stockings. She seemed more feminine and human in this in general, which at times was quite nice (I really liked her hair) but other times annoying.
But overall excellent. I was sorry I had to leave early.

And now the rambling.

The following one is literally just to straighten out things in my own head, which I find easier to do on Livejournal.

Musings on the merits of taking a placement year )

This ramble is because there's been quite a lot of discussion about feminism on my Flist and in a book I'm reading, so I've been thinking about it a lot.
Not particularly coherent comments on the sexes )
