I generally consider myself to be a peaceable person, but a few things make steam come out my ears. At the top of the list: bigotry, sexism, and misogyny.
If you want to peer into my brain for a few minutes - stop by the Book Faery's blog to check out my guest post on sexual double standards in fiction, plus you have the chance to win a Nightshade ARC!
And don't forget to submit your designs for the Wolfsbane cover contest.
I love that picture. I'm a total Buffy fangirl. *runs to read guest post*ReplyDelete
Wow, what a great post over at Book Faery! I agree with everything you said, though you said it much more succinctly and clearly that I would have done. As a former health educator (sexual health and then rape/violence prevention, to be exact) and now as a high school English teacher-in-training, I hope to be able to discuss these issues with my students in the future. I just hope I can do so without getting kicked out of the school system. :)ReplyDelete
Keep up the good work! Now I'm even more excited to read NIGHTSHADE.
That was an excellent guest post. Sometimes women are their own enemies by perpetuating and playing into these double standards. I've always appreciated that Buffy was created by a man. Yay, Joss!ReplyDelete
I will check it out. BTW Love Buffy. :)ReplyDelete
