On Our Bella, Ourselves

@S. Elizabeth Thank you. I find Blackwood's article to be just as troubling as Noah Berlatsky's in the Atlantic. Both Blackwood and Berlatsky seem desperate to reduce the possibilities for female characters to two (false) choices between "masculine" and "feminine". They compound their error by pretending that there are definitive masculine and feminine characteristics with absolutely no crossover between. Not only is that lazy thinking and lazy analysis, but it's just irritating.
