I Like Likable Characters

Slate Magazine: I Like Likable Characters

You know, I'm a card-carrying feminist, yet I vehemently disagree with Weiner here. I don't feel like women are under any obligation to pretend like they like particular genres of women's writing solely because they are women. Weiner acts like criticizing ANY woman's work is an affront to the sisterhood or something.

For every literary writer I hear saying that they don't like chick lit, or romance novels, or what -have-you, I hear just as many readers of such decrying literary fiction as "pretentious" or "depressing."

We like what we like.
