#knowyouraudience????? Like Sarah J Trash did when she and people like you promote hideous books to impressionable teenagers. You're all a joke.
[I try not to feed the trolls but this was a gift.]
Clearly, you’ve never been to my blog. Where I consistently and constructively criticize these books. In case no one ever explained it to you, it’s constructive criticism that gets heard and makes real changes. Not anonymous just-because-I-can hate.
“Like Sarah J Trash did when she and people like you promote hideous books to impressionable teenagers.”
Sorry, but have you ever been on the internet? Or turned on a TV? Or seen a movie? Or gone to Disney World/Land? Or seen a Disney princess movie? Or the cover of a magazine? Or watched a commercial? Or talked through the toy or clothing section of a Target or Walmart? Or sat in a high school classroom? Y/A books are the LEAST of your worries for “impressionable teenagers” of the world. (I could go for days in this topic on this.)
ALSO. DON’T BELITTLE TEENAGERS! Nothing is more annoying than old people, or “older” people, who think that teenagers (or people who are younger than them) are lesser, or somehow not capable of thinking for themselves. Being a teenager is ALL ABOUT learning to think for yourself. Teenagers are not idiots. Sure, at that age, hormones can get the best of you, and peer pressure is a dick—but teenagers are smart, and feeling, and brilliant, and artistic, and thinking about the world and life and what it all means and how we mediate it. And we have teenagers to thank for changing how we think about gender and sexuality. Sure adults helped, but it was these “impressionable teenagers” you’re so worried about who refused to back down and shut up when no one was listening to the problems they (very uniquely) could see.
“You’re all a joke.”
No seriously. You’re the joke because you left this comment anonymously. And your didn’t even #KnowYourAudience. And then you belittled teenagers as if we shouldn’t allow them to be exposed to differing ideas, and decide for themselves, to agree or disagree or fall somewhere in between, or to form their own opinions.
