Kinda OT but Jenny Trout herself deserves her own thread, or at least, being included in the whole YA shenanigans. She was the one who completely sperged a couple of years ago about killing Trump and her supporters. She writes "feminist romance novels".
Yeah, I was kinda picking up on that when she was writing about some drama with some other writers and talking about some woman who was a Trump fan spewing white supremacist bullshit and these other women (who were CLEARLY the bad guys) were defending her. I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt and assume it WAS one of the crazy conservatives who are genuinely racist, but, nah.
Sorry to dump more about the YA reviewer, buuuuut considering the website we are on I can’t keep the mi.lk all to myself.

'U so mad I read what I love and not what i should be reading'. Bitch, you are doing the EXACT SAME THING. This bitch does need a thread. Someone please find as much info as you can. This thread keeps circling back to her enough that she probably should get her own.

Why did this Paige chick even go to college to get a B.A. in English if she hates what's they make you read so much? And why do her "reviews" sounds like a teenager wrote them and not a graduate with a degree in English? Don't they have standards in how you're supposed to review books in those classes. Did she just forget everything she learned?

Paige is not like those dumb heterosexual cis cunts. She is an asexual aromantic genderfluid person :roll:

She should just call it the LGBBQ club because that's what the movement has devolved into at this point.
The fact that she unironically describes herself as 'demi-gal' just killed every ounce of credibility she could ever dream of having. Like, that goes beyond SJWism and well into Tumblr territory. And the general consensus among anyone who is even remotely sane is that Tumblr is the worst thing to ever happen to LGBT people.
And why do her "reviews" sounds like a teenager wrote them and not a graduate with a degree in English?
Everything she writes has that air to it. The only separating her from a 13-year-old who spends too much time on Tumblr is that she's got a decent grasp on grammar.

Even the Fifty Shades series, which is possibly the worst series to ever sell over 100 million copies, has a really valuable lesson in it: the signs of an abusive relationship. I was reading an in-depth review recently and the reviewer wrote her opinion on EL James in the review of Freed's epilogue, and she had a good point. I never read the whole series (I tried and kept getting irrationally angry that it managed to get published despite sounding like a horny 13 year old wrote it) and while I'd heard it showed very well an abusive relationship (albeit unintentionally), I hadn't seen how bad it was until I read that woman's reviews.
God, everything about 50 Shades is fucked the more you look into it. You know, the most common criticism you hear about the Twilight series is that it's about an abusive relationship, and 50 Shades was first created as Twilight fanfiction but with BDSM. It's almost like E.L. James was so on the nose but she wasn't writing a parody or social commentary or criticism of the source material. She legitimately got off on it, and somehow managed to make enough connections to get her shit published.

I'm a firm believer you should be allowed to publish whatever you damn well please, but 50 Shades had no reason to be a best-seller even if it was just because of bad publicity drawing in curious readers. It also had no reason to get movies made of it, not even a blaxploitation parody of it. E.L. James had no reason to get her shitty fanfiction published other than perhaps because Cassandra Clare did just that, and there should be rules against that. Fuck sensitivity readers, they should hire researchers to go combing through the Internet just to make sure the original work is legit original and not a shoddily-rewritten fanfiction from ten years ago.

Also fuck WattPad for thinking their special snowflake safespace community is creative and talented enough to get movie deals made of their books.

This is where we are now. This is how creatively bankrupt the entertainment and literary industries are.

These people are committed to never having any fun, so you might as well keep that streak going while working towards your degree. And English college courses don't necessarily prepare someone to write reviews since I would view that as a separate skill set than writing a critical essay. I think it has more to do with her wanting to be an edgy bitch.

It's a combination of edginess and activism. She really believes she's opening doors to women and minorities in the book industry.

That's kind of sad, because she's the type who, if she had any clout, would probably be doing the opposite. She's sitting and claiming (without showing any of the mountain of evidence she claims to have) that an Asian woman is a racist and stalks people. Anyone who asks for evidence is blocked. She is making book reviewers look so bad and she's also making the entire movement look bad because of how she's handling it.

Looks like the Maoists are doubling down on labelling Zhao a Racist, because writing about slavery makes you Anti-Black... somehow, even though to this day Asian women are the most LIKELY to be kidnapped and sold off into human trafficking rings.

...These people are going to kill traditional publishing houses with their gatekeeping antics unless the execs who own them wise up and start ignoring them like they did to religous nuts in the 2000s.

GoFundMe must be rock hard right now.

I think by the time Traditional Publishing houses realize that selling sanitized fiction kills their sales, they’ll throw these histrionics under the bus.

Get woke, go broke.
