P.C. Cast is appallingly sexist

May 2, 2013

I’ve discussed my problem with P.C. Cast before, and I’m not going to go over it again, but my fifteen-year-old is reading another one of her books (not the series I read) and is reading problematic lines aloud. Without me asking her to. Without me choosing what’s problematic.

So far: calling baking an inherently feminine thing, and mentioning needing to diet/lose weight in or around the same paragraph as dismissing women who want to be thin.

Stay classy, Cast. Or, rather, LEARN YOU SOME GODDAMN FEMINISM. You get the right to define your own femininity, but you don’t get to perpetuate stereotypes without being called out for it.

Kiddo also says that the main character’s bff is such a gay stereotype it’s off-putting. Can we just get over the idea that gays are all one specific way?
