I'm Meredith and I was spending too much time on the internet so I decided to go crawling back to my one truu luv, books. I'm a senior, and when I graduate, I want to major in History of Literature or Art History/Art Conservation and eventually get my PhD.
Male Writer:Ah, anniversary jokes are so funny. Because chicks always hate it when you don't remember anniversaries! A plus gold very original
Male Writer:Mother in laws amirite?
Male Writer:My male character who is an author insert of myself pines after a woman I used to pine after in high school. Then they have sex. This is good literature.
Male Writer:Ugh female books are so romance filled
Male Writer:And girl fanfics, so mary suey
Male Writer:Now listen about this original middle aged man who is an expert in everything, suffers from ennui, looks like me, acts like me, and gets all the girls i want.
Male Writer:She was sexy in an alluring, boring way, filled with purple prose and riddled with objectification
Male Writer:If i make a female character parrot my misogynistic views, they cease to be misogynistic! Are you saying you don't respect my fake female characters opinions, feminists?
Male Writer:a good action girl is one who looks hot at all times
Male Writer:If the female main character got in an asskicking line, my work is Feminist with a capital F and no one can criticize me
Specifically White Male Writer:Heroic tropes are so overdone. I'm going to create a boring white guy with stubble to be a completely original antihero no one has ever seen before TM.
Same Guy:It's original because he is a jerk who gets away with bad behavior, just like I wish i could.
Another Specifically White Male Writer:It's in my universe to only have white men do things in my book. I mean, don't you care about historical accuracy
Same Guy:I mean, it's a generic fantasy verse with no real life time period equivalent and i haven't done any research, but i'm SURE that it's historically accurate. To that dark mideval dragon fighting europe period
Same Guy:Where in Europe? Who cares!
Male Writer:There is no better way to introduce a female character to a male character than by him saving her.
Male Writer:Characters hating each other is good sexual tension!
Male Writer:One female character and five male characters is a good team balance
Male Writer:If my female character chooses to act in a sexist tropey way, it's not sexist. In fact, because she CHOSE to do it, it is Feminist.
Male Writer:I am original
