This "article" is terrible.
Worth it just for the "Royals (Royals)" joke alone.
Nathan Stewart-Jarrett's hotness does not get mentioned nearly enough.

@yeah-elle This makes me the happiest person. Think about how great that story is going to be to tell to your grandkids. Or your grandnieces and nephews or just small children who love romance, whatever.

Jia, that alt text.
@queenofbithynia whoaaaaa. I feel the exact same way that you do, but I am open to people feeling differently, that's all, and I'm going to say that I can absolutely hate this product and campaign while also reserving the right to NOT rage against anyone who personally likes this idea for any reason
@WorldofSass I've read the larger part of hooks's article, and I haven't gotten the sense of it being a "bitch slap" at all. In fact, hooks explicitly addresses the rage and envy aimed Sandberg's way after her publishing success, and talked about it being a real shame-- in the sense that Sandberg may have been targeted simply because of her success.
My sense of what I've read so far of hooks' critique is that she thinks Sandberg is promoting a vision of feminism that overlooks and excludes women of color and women who are poor. And she's frustrated by the fact that Sandberg is promoting playing within the white male patriarchy ruleset to get ahead, instead of finding ways to break that down.
Maybe hooks is naive on that last point. Maybe she would have been publishing bestsellers for the last twenty years if she'd "acted nice." She's managed to be pretty damn influential, regardless.

Even if you're having a bad week, don't worry, girl. It will be alright. Idris is here.
