Bronte Girls Gone Wild!



Take that, you sexist publishing conventions!

Thanks to the Huffington Post for alerting me to real Boomerang, Book-Throwing Action!

I watched three times, but couldn't find an order number... Darn it. ;)

I want a set! And I want to turn into a Brontesaurus and storm the ramparts of the publishing industry. Just as soon as I get home from my day job.

ROFLMAO!

These are so much better than CHarlie's Angels!
I say we all quit tweezing and waxing and grow ourselves some of those clever disguises.

But wait a minute. I'm thinking JK Rowling, Stephanie Meyer, and a host of other talented and commercially-blockbusting women have made that (mostly) unnecessary.

Or at least I'm hoping that's the case!

Gary says I'm a huge nerd for thinking that's funny. I booked him like a Bronte.
At least we have our own little playground here where we can laugh without the cool kids giving us swirlies and stealing our lunch money.

If they try, we can make 'em tiny-penised child molesters in our stories. Then feed 'em to Nate Kenyon's mutant zombie rats.

Oh, and as one of only two women in my entering fiction cohort, I can so relate to the "no girls allowed" in the "literary clubhouse." Things have changed now, somewhat, but I can remember a time in the early to mid nineties when almost ALL of the "quality lit" my profs wanted me read was written by men. It went against everything that was happening in the literature classes themselves, where there if you didn't talk about race, class, or gender, you couldn't even enter the conversation. And yet, there they were, the creative writing academic establishment, still pimping primarily men.
