      Imagine being so socially inept to think that in every case of raising a child that isn't your own you become a le ebin reddit cuckold meme.

        Dostoevsky really was a beta male, though. I'm reading his biography right now and he let his family walk all over him. Even his brother's mistress bossed him around.

          Wasn’t this more because he considered himself scum (a grave sinner, fallen man, etc.) and thus felt he had no right to impose his will on others?

            Sounds like beta male bs to me.

          I dunno, maybe he is, but what have you accomplished compared to him? I’m not saying we should all run to cut our balls off and post about it on Reddit with pronouns in our bio and a LGBT flag and all that, but you seem a little bit too obsessed with chauvinistic memes on the Internet, no?

          There has to be a sane, healthy middle way between being a fricking nu-male Redditor and being an average /misc/ meathead.

        You seem to be projecting. If you want to raise another man's child who isn't related to you in any manner, that is fine. But stop getting mad at others for not wanting to do the same.

          Did someone not have a daddy growing up? Sound bitter some kids get to have a chance at a normal family. Or would you prefer Mommy to decide she likes the ladies and brings a big butch gal into the home?

    If you are alluding to Dostoevsky’s worst novels, then, indeed, I dislike intensely The Brothers Karamazov and the ghastly crime and Punishment rigamarole. No, I do not object to soul-searching and self-revelation, but in those books the soul, and the sins, and the sentimentality, and the journalese, hardly warrant the tedious and muddled search. Dostoyevsky’s lack of taste, his monotonous dealings with persons suffering with pre-Freudian complexes, the way he has of wallowing in the tragic misadventures of human dignity – all this is difficult to admire. I do not like this trick his characters have of ”sinning their way to Jesus” or, as a Russian author, Ivan Bunin, put it more bluntly, ”spilling Jesus all over the place." Crime and Punishment’s plot did not seem as incredibly banal in 1866 when the book was written as it does now when noble prostitutes are apt to be received a little cynically by experienced readers. Dostoyevsky never really got over the influence which the European mystery novel and the sentimental novel made upon him. The sentimental influence implied that kind of conflict he liked—placing virtuous people in pathetic situations and then extracting from these situations the last ounce of pathos. Non-Russian readers do not realize two things: that not all Russians love Dostoevsky as much as Americans do, and that most of those Russians who do, venerate him as a mystic and not as an artist. He was a prophet, a claptrap journalist and a slapdash comedian. I admit that some of his scenes, some of his tremendous farcical rows are extraordinarily amusing. But his sensitive murderers and soulful prostitutes are not to be endured for one moment—by this reader anyway. Dostoyevsky seems to have been chosen by the destiny of Russian letters to become Russia’s greatest playwright, but he took the wrong turning and wrote novels.

      What a woman.
      I wonder if the creditor inspired that c**t German landlady in C&P by any chance.

        This was after C&P, Dostoevsky always hated Germans. His wife did too.

      Man, she was too good for Dosto, but if it wasn't for her, he wouldn't have been able to get it together long enough to write everything from C&P to TBK. Top tier IQfy waifu tbh

    I thought it was common knowledge by now that the best literature is written by miserable people who you'd never want to be in your life.
