eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (BtVS cheeseman nonsense)
[personal profile] eruthros
This appears in a critique of a BBC period film set in England circa 1900. Ready? Okay!
"I thought it was completely and utterly absurd. It was so out of its time. For example, all the knowledge about sadists -- sexual sadism and, and, psychopathy. Bearing in mind, Freud had only written The Interpretation of Dreams, I think it was published in 1899."
*laughs hysterically* Oh, man, talk about a non sequitor! APPARENTLY, sadism didn't exist until Freud invented psychoanalysis -- you know, it wasn't named, in, like, 1820 after some guy. No! It took Freud to invent the term and tell people all about it!

And, oh man, as if Psychopathia Sexualis hadn't nicely laid all of that out fifteen years prior? And as if folks hadn't bought it to read it as porn?

I love the way people think about Victorian England sometimes, guys.
