There is a ton of smart stuff to chew on in this article, including this bit, which I’d honestly never thought about before: “I usually see ‘he has a social disorder’ used to excuse men, and ‘she has a mental illness’ used to attack and discredit women.”
Since I’m attempting to actually use this Tumblr, here are some links to my recent writing on the internet:
Being Cinderella, in which I discuss my love for Disney’s Cinderella and the feminist message I take from it.
From MMMBop to the Comic Book Shop, in which I talk about the surprising similarities between Hanson fandom and comics fandom.
7 Reasons: Holly Black’s Curse Workers Trilogy, in which I celebrate some awesome YA books.
A Very Millennial Veronica Mars, in which I (sort of) review the Veronica Mars movie, and talk about its reflection of my generation.
Trying to Sing Along: The Cognitive Dissonance of Adaptation, in which I talk about some of the reasons why people react negatively to adaptations.
