My Daguerreotype Boyfriend

Where early photography meets extreme hotness

Do submit your hot photographs

The recent discovery of an unpublished D.H. Lawrence letter proves that he’s got your back, ladies. Writing in response to a misogynistic 1924 article titled “The Ugliness of Women,” Lawrence lay down the law: 


The hideousness {the author] sees is the reflection of himself, and of the automatic meat-lust with which he approaches another individual…Even the most “beautiful” woman is still a human creature. If {the author] approached her as such, as a being instead of as a piece of lurid meat, he would have no horrors afterwards. 


Thank you D.H. Lawrence, meat-lust warrior. (h/t Jezebel)

    A complex man, elitist, anti-socialist, but also someone who never succumbed to popular opinion.
