also the idea that ya lit needed saving is inherently sexist because the ya genre is one of the few bastions of female power fantasies in the publishing industry
it’s rooted in the idea that prior to john green, the genre was shallow and silly, and that the prominence of romance as an aspect of the genre is demeaning because romance is a silly shallow girl thing, when in actuality the ya genre is one of the most revolutionary of all the publishing genres because it allows girls freedom to explore themselves. it’s rooted in the idea that all ya lit is twilight and that makes it inherently bad
there’s a reason most prominent ya authors are women and it has a lot to do with the fact that the mainstream literary genre is still a boys’ club, leaving us to carve out a place for ourselves where we can tell our own stories, but since everything related to teenage girls is reviled ya gets shat on
the ya genre has plenty of problems, but you know what john green isn’t doing? fixing those. because the problems in the ya genre are homophobic, transphobic, and racist in nature, and john green still writes about straight white cis people
it’s funny because i don’t see anyone judging the entirety of children’s literature by christopher paolini’s shitstorm of a star wars rip-off
no one writes off the entire sci-fi genre because of orson scott card
or maybe we should start judging all mystery/intrigue novels by dan brown?????????????

No but seriously, GTAV is really good. Like, it’s great. So much to do. Like, holy cow. I understand why it’s would be GotY for some. But in the end, it’s another GTA game—but bigger, badder, and bolder in some ways. The Last of Us may be another apocalypse game, but in reality it’s narrative driven game. And boy did it break ground for it’s genre. I felt like it broke through a narrative barrier video games have been tap dancing on these past few years. The Last of Us finally shattered that glass ceiling with a massive blow.
