“Well, who are you staying with?”
She hesitated before replying.
“I won’t tell anyone,” he said. “I swear on the Angel.”
She stared. That was quite an oath, for a Shadowhunter. “All right,” she said, before she
could overthink her decision. “I’m staying with Amatis Herondale.”
“Great. I know exactly where she lives.” He offered her his arm. “Shall we?”
She managed a smile. “You’re kind of pushy, you know.”
He shrugged. “I have a fetish for damsels in distress.”
“Don’t be sexist.”
“Not at all. My services are also available to gentlemen in distress. It’s an equal
opportunity fetish,” he said, and, with a flourish, offered his arm again.
This time, she took it.
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Chapter 6: Bad Blood
Wow, isn’t Clary such a feminist? *snort* Is she for real? Seriously, how many times I pointed out how she sluts shame every girl or woman who is romantically interested in a boy. How, she constantly sluts shames Isabelle because how dare she wear sexually provocative clothes and dates multiple boys? I can’t get over how unaware Cassandra Clare and Clary is, or maybe she is and like everything else she is trying desperately to prove that her haters are wrong.
*shrugs* Whatever, it’s all bullshit anyway!
Anyway, I would like to give Clary kudos for one thing though. She’s actually right, Sebastian is being sexist and not only that creepy as hell. He’s basically calling Clary a fetish, and fetishization of a person is a bad thing. Honestly, Clary is stupid because if a man or a boy came up to me saying that he has a fetish for damsels in distress I would have backed away slowly and never gave him my address.
I rather take my chances on the street, to be honest!
Basically, all of this is just really gross and the direct opposite of female empowerment.
