In literature as in life, the rules are all too often different for girls. There are many instances where an unlikable man is billed as an anti-hero, earning a special term to explain those ways in which he deviates from the norm, the traditionally likable. Beginning with Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, the list is long. An unlikable man is inscrutably interesting, dark, or tormented but ultimately compelling even when he might behave in distasteful ways.

When women are unlikable, it becomes a point of obsession in critical conversations by professional and amateur critics alike. Why are these women daring to flaunt convention? Why aren’t they making themselves likable (and therefore acceptable) to polite society? In a Publisher’s Weekly interview with Claire Messud about her recent novel, which features a rather “unlikable” protagonist named Nora who is bitter, bereft, and downright angry about what her life has become, the interviewer said, “I wouldn’t want to be friends with Nora, would you? Her outlook is almost unbearably grim.” And there we have it. A reader was here to make friends with the characters in a book and she didn’t like what she found.

Messud, for her part, had a sharp response for her interviewer. “For heaven’s sake, what kind of question is that? Would you want to be friends with Humbert Humbert? Would you want to be friends with Mickey Sabbath? Saleem Sinai? Hamlet? Krapp? Oedipus? Oscar Wao? Antigone? Raskolnikov? Any of the characters in The Corrections? Any of the characters in Infinite Jest? Any of the characters in anything Pynchon has ever written? Or Martin Amis? Or Orhan Pamuk? Or Alice Munro, for that matter? If you’re reading to find friends, you’re in deep trouble. We read to find life, in all its possibilities. The relevant question isn’t ‘Is this a potential friend for me?’ but ‘Is this character alive?’”

guzhenn said: Yeah, I felt the same. I actually did well in middle school too but colleges don’t really care about that and it’s like ???? Why did I even try before high school? I know people who were the laziest shits before HS bc they knew they could fuck around

yeah, i dunno, I ask myself that sometimes. The only answer i have is that i tried to satisfy my parents, probably. there isn’t anything wrong with trying, and i don’t think the amount of effort i have in me is finite, but it sure feels that way sometimes.

rambling about the past and future, feel free to move along 

i was thinking about whether or not it’d be more efficient to not count your freshman year of high school when applying to college. while tons of freshman get the warning to do their best that year because it actually counts, i know plenty of people who either didn’t take that advice or couldn’t take that advice because it just took longer for them to get a steady footing in high school. Then I started wondering if i wanted freshman year to not count to excuse my own laziness, but thinking back, i actually did pretty good my first two years of high school, and it wasn’t really until my junior year that i started stumbling. i totally take full responsibility for doing shitty last year. i was burned out as hell by october iirc, but im sure that was my own fault since i didn’t take any longterm steps to right myself, and by the time i realized i didn’t particularly care anymore. so i guess i really just wish i could phase out a year of my choosing when applying to colleges, but i suppose it’s not for “efficiency,” just to get rid of regret. It’s weird i’m putting in effort this year, since it doesn’t really hold the same amount of weight. i guess that’s just because i more or less don’t want to make the same mistake.
