and art imitates life

I'm reading Mansfield Park (less than 90 pages left of 300) and i actually had to stop reading because Mr. Crawford's constant pressuring Fanny bothered me so much. I have serious issues with men not taking No for an answer. No, i haven't been raped or anything, but as my recent summers have established, i attract shady older men a lot, and the summer before college was my big introduction to people who don't understand concepts like personal space and boundaries. So i'm seriously identifying with Fanny's discomfort and really want Mr. Crawford to drop off the planet. (Plus, Fanny and Edmund forever of course, but that's beside the point.)
