Please reblog this if you are a patron of bookstores. Local, franchised, whatever. If you still like the feel of a hardcopy in your hands, please reblog.

Oh Stephen Fry, you majestic man. 

With out even being aware of my existance, Stephen Fry understands me better than anyone. I don’t fangirl over him nearly as much as he deserves.

The problem that needs to be fixed is not kick all the girls out of YA, it’s teach boys that stories featuring female protagonists or written by female authors also apply to them. Boys fall in love. Boys want to be important. Boys have hopes and fears and dreams and ambitions. What boys also have is a sexist society in which they are belittled for “liking girl stuff.” Male is neutral, female is specific.

I heard someone mention that Sarah Rees Brennan’s THE DEMON’S LEXICON would be great for boys, but they’d never read it with that cover. Friends, then the problem is NOT with the book. It’s with the society that’s raising that boy. It’s with the community who inculcated that boy with the idea that he can’t read a book with an attractive guy on the cover.

Here’s how we solve the OMG SO MANY GIRLS IN YA problem: quit treating women like secondary appendages. Quit treating women’s art like it’s a niche, novelty creation only for girls. Quit teaching boys to fear the feminine, quit insisting that it’s a hardship for men to have to relate to anything that doesn’t specifically cater to them.

Because if I can watch Raiders of the Lost Ark and want to grow up to be an archaeologist, there’s no reason at all that a boy shouldn’t be able to read THE DEMON’S LEXICON with its cover on. My friends, sexism doesn’t just hurt women, and our young men’s abysmal rate of attraction to literacy is the proof of it.

If you want to fix the male literary crisis, here’s your solution:

Become a feminist.

superwholocked-in-albion:

Most underrated Disney character ever: the book shop owner from Beauty and the Beast.

Back in like the colonial French time period (if I’m wrong, someone please correct me) this peasant French girl wouldn’t have been expected to read. She would have been expected to do what everyone in the town canonically thought she should do in the movie: marry Gaston, settle down, have his children and keep his home. Even the bimbettes, the girls who are Belle’s age and swoon over Gaston, can’t even DREAM of having any other lifestyle and think of her dreaming and reading as weird.

But along comes the book shop owner and he caters to Belle’s dreams and love of reading in the half a minute he’s on screen just as much as Maurice. He understands that books and adventure are important to her and doesn’t try to repress that or call her odd like all the other townspeople do.

I bet he taught Belle how to read and really fostered her love of books and challenged her intellectually her whole life, in a society where that was deemed a crazy thing to do, since she wasn’t expected to amount to anything more than a trophy wife. You can even see the look of pure joy on his face as she talks about her favorite books.

Best Disney role model ever.
