I'm a guest at Reel Girl, where Margot Magowan quizzes me about The She-Hulk Diaries and gender issues in the media.
I don’t care one way or the other about the term chick lit. It was used as a way to market humor written by women. It was twisted into an insult, which isn’t uncommon for anything that is female-dominated. I like funny women so I’m absolutely going to pick up funny books written by women.Yes, I have opinions! Drop by and comment.Margot does the same thing that I do: obsessively count female representation in the media. When you count, you notice how disproportionate it is. Yes, I have issues from being the only girl in the family. I told one of my best friends, who's the oldest in a family of girls, that I always wanted an older sister. She said, "No, you don't. They just boss you around and tell you you're wrong all the time."
I think galleys will be out for She-Hulk this coming week. Woo-hoo! I hope to get a few to share in contests.
