I’m kind of obsessive sometimes. See Turtles All the Way Down for an extreme version of my brain. Anyway, sometimes I read something that bugs me and I just can’t. Stop. Thinking. About it. It’s not like I’m getting mad or holding a grudge or anything, it’s just like this annoying pestering itch that I won’t go away no matter how much I scratch.
A few months ago I read a tweet that said something like “If I see a blogger that only reviews books about cis people I just can’t take them seriously.” At first I thought, Okay, fine, you’re entitled to your opinion I guess. But then, like I do, I kept thinking about it. And the more I thought about it the more annoyed I become.
Because if you were just to glance at someone’s blog you might think they don’t read any books with LGBTQ rep. But maybe they do! They might not be as widely recognized as, say, Simon vs. the Homo Sapians Agenda, but they’re there.
