Why are they fearless? They're stupid, and I'm fairly certain several of them are hung over. I've always been convinced all legislation is a Monday or Friday effort. For the younger readers, you'll learn that Friday workers have getting drunk later that day on their minds. Monday workers are just hungover or still fairly drunk. These aren't ideal conditions. Anyway, several members of our more deliberative chamber of the Congress (the Senate) are unaware that the debt ceiling has nothing whatever to do with authorizing the taking on of more debt. It is a Constitutional gambit where our adult politicians tell the Secretary of the Treasury that he may cut checks to pay the tab on things we've already bought. Failing to raise the debt ceiling simply means we default on our loans.
The government doesn't get to declare bankruptcy such as I'm aware.
Anyway, I'd have been wrong. Dead wrong. Well, undead wrong I suppose is more apt. Novelists and movie producers are the death knell. Apparently, our fiction writers aren't taking sufficient stock of how to write good fiction according to a certain harebrained feminista of skepchick notoriety. Yes, if you're a fiction writer, do me a favor and make all of your characters plastic and unrealistic by ensuring that you see no continuum of personalities in the universe.
All women characters you miracle into being have to be just so, else you've severely damaged women everywhere. It's not as though on a planet of some 7,000,000,000 people there might exist one or two women who are, you know, emotionally under-developed as teenagers. It's not as though some might lack confidence or a good sense of self worth.
And maybe I’m spoiled by the Hermione Grangers and Eowyns of the past few years. But I’ve come to expect more from female characters. It really bothers me that this movie depicts a girl who falls in love within days and then proceeds to spend the rest of the movie supressing [sic] everything about herself for this boy. And the worst part is that this is considered as a ‘happy ending’ for her.
No. This will simply not do. All women at all times are strong, and your writing should reflect that. Stop fucking up my society by having characters who have different shades of flaws and weaknesses. Please. Do not make characters dynamic; allow not for growth, since one can, of course, run into running. That crawl, walk, run shit is only for other people - not the women in any of your books. Please, please, please stop writing characters that develop and mature. I know it's fiction you're writing, but I can only suspend disbelief for so long.
Oh, and Congress, get off your ass and stop piddling around with inconsequential issues like unfucking our economy. We have imaginary people running rampant inside book covers. They're ruining everything.
Turns out I didn't have to write any of this. A strong feminist answered this profoundly stupid literary critic several years before her stupidity was even dreamed up. Fuck, I really am starting to think Miss Cleo was onto something more than fraud.
Here's the rebuttal circa 2007. Oddly, four years to the day tomorrow . . . fucking prescience right there.
