Labels

I saw this video on my Facebook feed earlier today. I have not seen a video this profound in a long time.

Underneath our skin, we are all human. We have the same bones, the same blood, the same flesh. We start wars over labels. We kill and murder and destroy over labels.

It’s time to see each other as human beings and not labels.

Jane Austen Is NOT A Victorian

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will be hitting theaters next weekend. A number of reviews, I predict will refer to Austen or Pride and Prejudice as Victorian.

I’d like to set the record straight.

Jane Austen lived in the Regency era, which took place from 1795 to 1837. Jane Austen died in 1817. The Victoria era lasted during the reign of Queen Victoria, from 1837 to 1901.

Please, I beg of you. If you are writing a review, do your research. Do not refer to Jane Austen as a Victorian.
