The Wisdom of Downton

We must have a care for feminine sensibilities. They are finer and more fragile than our own.”

-Lord Grantham

Since we’re doing quote analysis… This line is actually a bit ironic in the context of the episode, but I tend to agree with it on face value. Reflexively, it seems a bit anti-feminist. Discuss?

Also if you aren’t watching Downton Abbey,  START. IT IS AMAZING.

    ^Can this please be a tag?

    Also, I think we should from now on write this blog entirely in references to Victorian comedies of manners.

    More seriously–meh. I see too much variety in the emotional makeup and needs of individual men and women to find quotes like this particularly useful in real life.
