Same search, swapping the gender, page one of Google results.
This is one reason why I won’t shut up about it.
getting sick of female YA authors crying about every little bit of criticism they get. “oh boo hoo I’m a girl and I’m getting criticized so it must be sexist”
like hey yeah maybe you’re just bad at writing? maybe you need to break out of your circle jerk of well-to-do…
Be a good girl. Be a cool girl. Be a tough girl.
WHAT IS HAPPENING TO YOU IS NOT ACTUALLY HAPPENING TO YOU.
Every threat you’ve gotten is deserved.
Every good thing that came your way wasn’t earned.
You’ve written a book and that gives people the right to insult the way you look, the way you talk, the things you like, the people you hang out with.
You are lucky lucky lucky so just stfu and be grateful.
This kind of casual, callous crap makes me furious. And SRB’s original post had zero to do with criticism of her actual writing. (Also, her response here is much more sensible than mine and full of good links.)
HE’S WEARING KHAKI PANTS. Deb Sokolow’s notebook drawings from her Art Assignment stakeout. 3 of 3.
Deb’s documentation of her stakeout is brilliant and fascinating.
I think the Retribution release pushback is taking a toll on us…some predictions for book three are getting scary.
Inspiring as always, Mr. Green!
This is why I love @realjohngreen
Thank you. Finally someone says it, and hopefully people will actually listen.
literature meme ♦ genres - gothic romanticism [1/3]
I’d thought about this. Fantasized about it. Many, many times. Granted, most of those times were before I’d been institutionalized and experimented upon, before I needed help getting undressed and bathing. I looked at myself in the mirror, wondering who would be staring back. (x)
But when everyone tells you you’re crazy and no one believes you when you swear you aren’t, a small part of you will always wonder if they’re right.
Make War, Not Love!
Yes the playlist is perfect for listening to while gazing at the Ruin and Rising cover, I’ve been doing it for three hours! (But with retail therapy breaks in Anthropologie’s sale section online I must admit haha)
The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
These covers look so gorgeous together! Love seeing the complete trilogy all together!
I love how the covers have gotten increasingly red!
Grisha Trilogy Meme: GenyaBecause I am a doll, and a servant. Because I am a pretty thing and a soldier all the same.
"Luminous Genya, with her alabaster skin and graceful hands. Resilient Genya, who had endured countless indignities and insults, but who had always held her lovely chin high. Foolish Genya, who had tried to be my friend, who had dared to show me mercy."
The Genya edits always get me right in the feels. Tumblr justice.
