>>271224 Tbh culture doesn't exist in any first world countries anymore die to the commodification of everything unique about them by other peoples and because all new culture is rarely supported by the populis causing it to devolve into 2-5 year trends at max where as culturr is cultivated over a time ten times greater than that and lasts much longer.
>>271224 No Firstly, no one would even call themselves a postmodernist. It's an insult. Secondly, what people describe as postmodernism probably damaged the cause of art, but it did not "destroy" it. How could it, culture is lasting. It had an accomplice in doing that though, which is commercialised culture, Hollywood, shitty novels, the music industry, etc. "Culture" is a niche now.
This is a thread for women who fought for women's rights.
Pic related is Franca Viola. She brought an end to the women-shaming culture in southern Italy by refusing to settle for a repair marriage, as moral dictated for women who lost their virginity before marriage (regardless of whether they lost it willingly or not, since often a victim has nothing to prove she has been raped but her traumatic experience) by taking her rapist to court and forcing him to be condemned and pay for his crime and offense. Her trial changed the public opinion on "repair" marriages completely, exposing how oppressive and abusive they often were to the public and turning rape from a simple crime against morality to a much graver crime against the person.
>After Viola refused to marry her rapist, her family were reportedly menaced and persecuted, to the point of having their vineyard and cottage burned to the ground. These events and the following trial had a wide resonance in the Italian media, and the Parliament itself was directly involved, as it became obvious that part of the existing code clashed with the public opinion. Melodia's lawyers tried to maintain that Viola had consented to a so-called "fuitina" (a runaway to get married secretly) rather than being kidnapped, but the trial found Melodia guilty.
>Despite people predicted she could not have been able to find a suitable husband and would have ended up a spinster, Franca Viola married her childhood sweetheart, Giuseppe Ruisi, in December 1968. Ruisi, an accountant, insisted he would have married the girl he had always loved despite threats and rumours, but had to request a firearm license after obtaining the marriage license, to protect himself and his future wife. Both the Italian President Giuseppe Saragat and Pope Paul VI publicly expressed their appreciation of Franca Viola's courage and their solidarity with the couple. Franca Viola had two sons and three grandchildren and still lives in Alcamo with her husband.

>Let’s just grant the possibility that there is a Creator God, who’s omniscient, who occasionally authors books. And he’s gonna give us a book – the most useful book. He’s a loving God, he’s a compassionate God, and he’s gonna give us a guide to life. He’s got a scribe, the scribe’s gonna write it down. What’s gonna be in that book? I mean just think of how good a book would be if it were authored by an omniscient deity.

Ok all the other things I can say are good things, but cheaper goods aren't necessarily a good thing. It gives incentives to produce cheap ass stuff with no regard for waste disposal, enviroment or work safety.
Boucher was a master painter, and his most revered scenes are those of the quaint countryside, depicting idyllic pastoral scenes and classical themes. His depictions in the pastoral genre excluded the harsh realities of live, and brought the beauty of the countryside into the homes of aristocratic society. The Fountain of Love is such an image. It was first designed as an image for a tapestry in 1748, and was one in a set of six images depicting Noble Pastorales.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Look closely at this roasting ox and you’ll notice small animal heads protruding from its sides. Explanation is in order.
The year is 1530. Coronation ceremonies are being held for the Holy Roman Emperor in Bologna, Italy. A daylong procession in the streets culminates in a feast sponsored by the city senate. Red and white wine flows from the mouths of gilt lions mounted on columns adorned with the Roman imperial double-headed eagle and the emperor’s motto, “plus ultra” (further beyond), referring to his power and the extent of his...

Tell me more about Yamato Nadeshikos, /his/. I'm fascinated by this particular figure of Japanese history. Is it true they were supposed to sacrice themselves protecting the houses during war, if needed?
Yes women were expected to defend the castle along with the men. They were called the Onna-bugeisha.
Samurai women were actually quite powerful in Japan up until the edo period. They could inherit, govern, manage, and fight just like the men. They were generally expected to be supportive of their husbands but they still held power on their own.
That generally changed during the edo period when samurai faded from warriors to bureaucrats.
>>270125 Yes it was considered the proper thing to do. Women of noble status were expected to fight and die for their husbands and clans if necessary.
It was seen as the highest form of dedication.
It became rarer as times changed but it was still seen as late as the Boshin War in the mid 1800's.

Eastern Front no doubt. The Pacific Theater was awful, but the Eastern Front was hell on earth. Imagine having malaria while fighting suicidally aggressive nips in dense shrubbery. Now, imagine fighting in a landscape so cold you'd have to choose between shitting yourself or dying of cold, where every street corner is a potential meatgrinder and people are dying en masse.
