Hemingway's Brett wasn't a tragic, misguided figure as I feel he intended her to be.

Instead, she became the role model for all modern women.

Are there any other literary figures that were intended to portray negative traits, but instead became paragons of social empowerment and personal freedom?

Emma Bovary. Milton's Satan, though that one is a bit more nuanced.

Borderline and horrifically histrionic. Power-bitch. Then again, most of the men were pretty pathetic alcoholics.

I hardly think anyone sees her as a role model. And I do feel bad for Americans. The feminazi-superbitch meme seems to mostly apply to the yanks.

Rorschach from Alan Moore's Watchmen was supposed to be repugnant. Moore didn't realize how popular Rorschach would be with readers because Moore is a commie fag.

Ladies where I'm from are quite fine. I have a very hard time identifying with the soulless succubus meme sprouted especially by the frogpeople over on r9k.

She does what she wants, no apologies, until she apologizes. Then she brings it up repeatedly, while encouraging others not to talk about it.

She is only human because she is a victim of uncontrollable urges. Brave because she refuses to be controlled.

Repressed by society's opinions on how she should act. Virtuous because she won't subject others to her escapades.

Brett is the modern woman. She makes her own decisions, and when faced with repercussions, sends multiple telegrams requesting rescue from her good friend Jake, whom she tragically loves dearly, whom she spares from the uncontrollable adultery.

Brett isn't some bitch who would marry for love and assuredly abandon her family when a young man gets her pussy wet. She is better than that.

She is a true woman. A strong victim.

what would happen if you discussed something without putting it in terms of "memes"?

4chan would wither and die.

No, but the misogyny thing r9k is rolling with, that's definitely a meme.

Lovely doublethink.

yes

after i finished this book, i looked at his wikipedia page. he wrote the sun also rises when he was a young expat socialite in paris.

he literally wrote a book about how cool him and his friends were going to be in 10 years. i can't think of anything more conceited and delusional than that.

Really? That's what you took away from this book about a bunch of bitter, lonely, broken people?
