I think Lolita is beautifully written and Nabokov is a genius, but the way I see the Lolita-Humbert relationship idolized on tumblr makes me feel a little bit sick. You like older dudes? Cool, me too- but don’t act like it’s a romance, it isn’t. A grown man repeatedly rapes a teenage girl and emotionally manipulates her. Don’t be fooled by the beautiful prose, it’s not a love story.
