Julia in "1984" (TW for mention of sexual violence)

Post by marxonwheels »

here's yet another reason to not read orwell (as if you needed one. i imagine most folks here don't, but regardless.)

again, CW for mention/discussion of sexual violence below and in the linked tweet:

sooooo apparently the character of Julia is based on a girl Orwell literally tried to r*pe when he was 15. and he references it *within the framework of the novel.* https://twitter.com/orikron/status/1543 ... j1Rb4TdMdA i mean.... i don't even know. my god. he's somehow even worse than you think he is.
he/him. Read Losurdo.
