Born in the Wrong Century by Perytiion Born in the Wrong Century by Perytiion
I moved the stamp here for everyone's enjoyment! I just didn't like the idea of it sitting unsupervised on another account.

I'm surprised at its popularity! Good gracious. I'm glad I'm not the only one. :D

Again, please :+fav: or comment if you use it just so that I'm aware! Thanks a lot everyone.

Hey thanks so much!
And there is much to love about the Victorian era it's very true. Like any time period it had its problems but all of the fashion and architecture was just gorgeous!

Oh yes, this century indeed sucks.

It really sucks that we are able to dress like we want to.
It really sucks that women are able to vote.
It really sucks we are able to marry whoever we want.
It really sucks that we can take proper care of our hygiene.
It really sucks that women can go to work so they don't necessarily need a man.
It really sucks that we have so much medicines and vaccanines that we don't necessarily die at the age of 40.
It really sucks that countries help each other out in case of disaster.
It really sucks that we treat black people like they were humans just like us.
It really sucks that we can no longer sent homosexuals to jail or kill them or put them through shock therapy to turn them into a proper man/woman.
It really sucks that we have better birth control nowadays.
It really sucks that we don't have much war anymore.
It really sucks how much science has developed.
It really sucks that we have a freedom of religion.
It really sucks we have airplanes, modern ships and motorcycles/cars so our journeys to other places won't take like 3 years.
It really sucks we have Google/Wikipedia etc. where we can find information very quickly.
It really sucks we have Internet where there is Youtube/Tumb1r/Facebook/Deviantart etc. where we can come and tell how much everything sucks.

Yes. Why we can't have nice clothes. Oh actually we can.

Oh hi there! You've got quite an intelligent argument here, nice job. :D There is certainly a lot going for the current age isn't there?
I'd actually say there are couple of points up there that are only mostly true, namely that racism is still fairly rampant even if it isn't at the forefront of our culture in the way that it was, and that war is still definitely pretty common in our world. In fact, I'd be kind of hard put to come up with a country that isn't involved in some kind of war at the moment. The way that some people treat homosexuals and transsexuals continues to be pretty horrific, especially given that there are some organizations founded on the desire to make gay people straight again in whatever way they can, be it violence or psychological therapy.
Anyway, my intention was not to offend anyone with this stamp as it seems I may have in your case. It was only to appeal to those people who often feel as if they would have fit in better in a different time period, whatever its various problems and issues were at the time. It's amazing sometimes to realize how hard it is to live in such an advanced age.
For example, we don't really have much time anymore to reflect and to meditate on life somewhere between working ridiculously long hours and then trying to manage all of the various other responsibilities of our lives. At least in American society, we have suffered an enormous loss of culture and spend a great deal of our lives going around buying things. For many people spirituality has sort of fallen into the background instead of being treated as something important in our lives. We have new and different problems to tackle connected to our technological capabilities and environmental concerns. Every age has its issues and its benefits, and no time period is perfect, but there historical cultures that for some people are easier to relate to than our time.
I liked your comment, it brought up some important points!

Yes but atleast they cannot FORCE them to be cured, or kill them, in civilized countries. You cannot possibly compare the situation with racism and homophobia to the past. It has changed A LOT. Of course it can ALWAYS be better. There's always douchebags and religious nuts out there. Same thing with war; you cannot compare these days wars to the past either.

I wouldn't say the stamp offends me, I just cannot understand how can anyone, especially a woman, want to go back to the past when thing are so much better now.

I like some of the fashion of the past, I admit, but the thought that I would be arrested because of wearing pants is...so offensive. I like the fact that I can dress how I want to.

As to your first point, many of the anti-homosexual programs I'm talking about have actually succeeded in convincing people that they shouldn't lead their sexual lifestyle anymore. Really sad state of affairs. Depending on the time period, homosexuality was actually embraced and was in fact the normal state of life (take for example the situation in ancient Greece). I suppose I can't compare warfare today to its counterpart in the past only because wars are conducted very differently due to advances in technology and different interest groups being involved for different reasons.
I can totally understand your feelings about being forced into one mode of fashion depending on where and when you live. Not having pants for an option might suck. Of course for most women in some of these times pants wouldn't have been terribly useful to their current lifestyle, and might actually have felt like an embarrassing thing to wear. We can almost dress like we want to, but there are definitely spoken and unspoken rules about what we should and shouldn't wear. Much as I would sometimes feel pretty great about wandering around wearing nothing at all, I'd probably be arrested for it.

I still disagree about the part on homosexuality and race issues. We have come a long way. Do you live in America because those kind of programs are very rare in here where I live. Not to mention that interracial marriage is legal in many places and same sex marriage is legal in a few places (and more to come).
I mostly meant the times after Christianity was born, because usually people seem to want to live on those eras. Homosexuality in ancient Greece wasn't always so "yay it's totally accepted!" of course nobody got killed for it (though I don't know how was the case with lesbians), but they appreciated older male/younger male (I don't mean pedophilia) and higher status/lower status couples but if partners were equals it wasn't always the case. Alexander the Great was in love with his best friend Hephaistion, and not everyone like it especially when he, despite being king, called Hephaistion his equal. Of course there are eras where homosexuality was accepted and even preferred. (What is funny is how male homosexuality seemed to be more accepted than lesbianism, but nowadays lesbians are OK but gay gyus EEEK!)

One thing I also don't like how in many eras after christianity was born, sex was so demonized. Look, I'm not even personally into sex, and I could perfectly live without it, but treating sex and sexuality the way they did back then (I'm talking about Europe) wasn't healthy at all. People are always so "oh victorian people were so innocent back then" . No. We're talking about people who covered their table legs to avoid thinking of sex. People who sometimes married a stranger just so they could fuck someone.

I quess I see where you're coming from. If I were a man the idea would feel more comfortable, I just don't like the idea that I couldn't example divorce if my husband treated me horribly, or that I necessarily need a man to survive. Or that I couldn't vote. I also don't like the idea that I would have to look black people treted badly or them being slaves etc.

Of course there have been people who have been happy and shit...geez I don't know anymore what to think. T____________________T I'm too much of a pessimist I quess...or a realist. :shrug:

I do indeed live in America, and at least in this country we have definitely come a long way on race issues. Having an African American president for the first time is certainly a huge step in the right direction! I can't speak for every country on earth, but we have definitely made some strides. However I can't help but think that if even one program exists that would desire to wipe out homosexuality, it's one too many.
I do find it interesting that lesbianism is so much more acceptable today than homosexual men. It's somehow been painted as some sort of innocent and curious phase that won't last long. It's really pretty silly.
I definitely see your points and I'm actually glad that you brought them up. Having a dependency on men and living your life by their rules would be a very different experience, often a terrible one. But who knows? Maybe knowing what we know now and being able to carry it to a different historical period would create change in the right direction a lot sooner! Having some progressive advocates in the past would be an interesting thing to imagine. :lol:
I don't think you are pessimistic I think you are just able to realize the benefits of living in the world we are in! Which is of course an excellent way to live. Setting out each day with gratitude is much better than wandering along with unrealized wishes. :)

Okay you seem to be somewhat rational person and I apologize if I seemed a bit harsh. It's just I'm really tired of these teenage girls who want to live on some particular period because it's so 'romantic' (not everyone had life like Jane Austen's girls, remember that!) or because they had some pretty clothes. I understand though, that some people lived very remarkable and good lives. But seriously many of those girls couldn't live without their Nutella or computers or iPods(Pads?).

The best thing now is the human rights and the fact that sex isn't demonized; like back then "Don't have sex or you die/go to hell!" and then everyone had it in secret and everything was pretty fucked up. But it's not like I like this 'sex sells' culture either....uhh...

Actually it would be interesting to try different kind of living...to see what it is like...and not just wonder. To see for yourself.

Oh my late comment response I'm sorry!
I think it might be arguable whether there is more regulation now than there was in the 12th century. I mean, it also depends a great deal on what social status you would have and where you lived and what gender you are. Generally, especially if you think of England at that time, there was really quite a lot of regulation, about what you could wear, how you could behave, and who you could associate with, as well as how much you could learn and participate in certain activities. But it's also true that life could have been very rewarding then as well. It is hard to say not having lived it. I particularly like the fashion of the wealthy from that time, and some of the architecture. It's hard not to like castles. :)
