I hate when people say “I love your tumblr but can you post less of-” like no bitch this aint build-a-blog
I can’t read books without noticing the diversity (or lack thereof) of the characters.
I can’t accept lazy excuses for that lack of diversity.
I can’t read a book without thinking “Where are all the LGBTQ people?”
I can’t excuse characters based on stereotypes and shallow research.
I can’t pick up a book by a straight white male without thinking, “Haven’t I read a lot of books by straight white males recently?”
I can’t make myself spend money at Amazon
I can’t read a book without mentally putting it through the Bechdel test
Internet, I used to be blissfully ignorant, just reading my lily-white books written by lily-white people, mass ordering books from Amazon. And I blame you that I’m not anymore.
