@LilRedCorvette

I'm with you. Seems a bit literal-minded and humorless around here today. I feel sorry for the new editor; it's almost as if some people are looking for reasons to get pissy.

I wasn't planning to comment because, well: I read, I nodded, I chuckled, I moved on, but so many people seem so offended that I feel compelled to put my thumb on the other side of the scale. I thought the article was equal parts astute and satirical (the "use your hand as a barrier the way you would with the sun" advice being a pretty solid indicator for the latter), even after rereading to see if I had missed something I could get up in arms about (my favorite internet activity).

@dorkmuffin I do. I consider the universal tepid love for Jane Austen and corresponding disdain for the more difficult Brontes to be one of the foremost signs of the death of the mind and the twilight of the heart that so thoroughly characterize this age. The two tastes go together because you can misread Jane Austen as category romance, you can even misread Jane Eyre as category romance if you are really determined on it, but try as you may, you cannot do that to Wuthering Heights. It withstands diminution in a way that many other great novels by great women are unable to do (though no particular fault of their own).

The framing narratives drive me a little crazy but for the most part it is a bunch of lightning bolts right to the eyeballs. It's a good book.

Bro-ga instructor (who kept telling us we "killed" poses) ended class with "I love you all, and there's nothing you can do about it".

Okay just no. The shit this dude is posting on Twitter proves how little he understands anything. He says he is "trying to understand the vitriol." WOMEN AMIRITE?!! SO BITCHY.

Oh were we threatening to rape and murder you? That IS vitriolic, I do apologize on behalf of all the commenters. HINT: "female" authors have to deal with comments that are actually vitriolic CONSTANTLY. What you're seeing here is a measured dialogue. Just because everyone thinks your essay was a piece of shit doesn't mean they're vitriolic.
