Author spotlight on vagina

11 people have found my blog by searching "I want to quit life." I feel you.

I'm boycotting HTMLGiant. Not that anyone will notice or miss my readership, but there it is. There are often interesting posts about independent publishing and literary giants, it's true, but I can't take any more of this misogynist circle jerk. Every woman on there gets reduced to her vagina.

Where are the grown-ups? Do I have to join some hippie dippie feminist coffee klatch in order to be respected as a woman who writes? Is it really so hard to curate a literary blog that can include women without reducing them to sex objects? SHOW US YOUR BODY, HEATHER CHRISTLE:

Currently trying to find a way to solve the problem of HTMLgiant. No solution yet.

I actually found your sight by typing: I am a mythical vagina.
