Game of Thrones and Invisible Cootie Vectors

Holy shit, Scott Lynch is my new hero.

 

"Now, it’s undeniably true that male writers (including yours truly) are generally and commercially allowed to write about “girl stuff” without being penalized for doing so. In part this is the same old shit it’s always been… I’ve said before that men who write mostly about men win prizes for revealing the human condition, while women who write about both men and women are filed away as writing “womens’ issues.” Likewise, in fantasy, the imprimatur of a dude somehow makes stuff like romance, relationship drama, introspection, and adorable animal companions magically not girly after all.

 

In a sense, we male fantasists are allowed to be like money launderers for girl cooties."
