Reading the Classics: Hester Prynne is a Puritan Super Babe | Bitch Media

Dimmesdale, eaten away by Chillingsworth’s bullying and his own remorse, is very ill, and Hester offers him a way out: flee crappy Puritan New England with her. What a great idea—why didn’t they think of it earlier? Dimmesdale protests on account of his hard-won tortured-minister look (you know he has an emo haircut), but almost immediately comes around because a) Hester is a babe, b) sex, c) Puritans suck.

The rest of the essay includes a discussion of how great Hester Prynne’s hair is.
