Ancrene Wiseass

A would-be medievalist holds forth on academia, teaching, gender politics, blogging, pop culture, critters, and whatever else comes her way.

Yes, this really is yet another blog by a disillusioned grad student. I sympathize, but that's just the way it has to be. For hints as to what my bizarre alias means, click here and here and, if needed, here and here. To get a sense of what I'm up to, feel free to check out the sections called "Toward a Wiseass Creed" and "Showings: Some Introductory Wiseassery" in my main blog's left-hand sidebar. Please be aware that spamming, harassing, or otherwise obnoxious comments will be deleted and traced.

WTF? (In an almost literal sense)

Uh, why is it that my students, many of whom seem to think they're sexually au courant, believe that Shakespeare's Venus and Adonis are in the missionary position when she straddles him in an attempt to seduce him?

Do they not read those copies of Position of the Day I see them buying at Urban Outfitters?
