The people who whine about appropriation are just upset that no one wants to steal their shit, nor will anyone ever be inspired by it.

Nostalgia compels me to hope that an Animorphs movie will be good, but given that Artemis Fowl was an incoherent garbage fire of a movie, my pessimism is kicking into overdrive.Someone but the full collection of Animorph books online for free.
Also there’s a movie coming. Sorry if I’m super late on this.
July’s Most Anticipated Young Adult BooksDouglas Adams said:“Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.”
Absofuckinglutely not, except for the girls in the reading group I used to go to. Seeing a boy with a book is so rare that when I do, it's a sci-fi novel published before the 2000s. The only exception are the chinese exchange students reading Cultivation novels during lunchtime.Do any "young adults" actually read YA at all? My impression is that's it's now written entirely by and for adults-in-name-only.
Not much. Most either read adult books or keep reading kids' stuff. If they've lost interest in kids' stories and either find adult books too challenging or have parents that don't allow them to read them, a lot of people just stop reading around this age. It's not just the political soapboxing causing this problem, it's that altogether what gets marketed to this age group is so narrow in variety. Most YA I see talked about on BookTube fall into at least one of these;Do any "young adults" actually read YA at all? My impression is that's it's now written entirely by and for adults-in-name-only.
TBH, if I'm on goodreads and I see this one reviewer give something a bad or lukewarm review, I'll reconsider dismissing it because what they consider peak importance and 'Everyone must read' is garbage like The Hate U Give. Same with a lot of booktubers, as they call themselves. Girls who sit on the floor with fairy lights on their bookshelves, all which are filled with YA and multiple slipcovers of Harry Potter, and talk about how a comic about gay teens is SO CUTE and WHOLESOME and OMIGOD GUYS IT'S SOOOO GOOD.But, then again, after looking at GoodReads reviews and seeing what will get these folks to DNF and 1 star a book, I think they'd be unable to handle an adult book that discusses the realities of racism or homophobia, since the most mild of bad-things happening to a minority protagonist in YA (like being called a name) makes them lose their shit.
Oh, good ol' LL McKinney. This dummy's stuff floats by my feed on a semiregular basis. For the edification of the thread, here's her magnum opus. It's YA identity politics bingo!
Rothfuss is literally underwriting the operation of a feminist bookstore at least in part so you won't think this. They took his money but don't want his input, or that's how I read the "silent partner" bit.The Name of the Wind is a BAD book because it's a MALE POWER FANTASY and written by a man and UNREALISTIC.
I guess she’s assuming that these white authors spend all their time on Twitter so they’ll be available to immediately correct such occurrences.
She's a great cow, isn't she? Endless milk as she's on Twitter 24/7, always raging about one thing or another. I wonder if she has a job or her "job" is Twitter sperging.
1. How often does this happen that you consider it this huge problem?
That comic book she's doing looks like ... hmmm .... something.
