- We really really need to stop titling novels “The [X]‘s Daughter”. Not only are they hard to tell apart, and way overdone, but must we continue to define girls and women this way?
- Alternate titles:
“The woman in relationship only to herself”
“The woman defined as her own person rather than as her relationship to another”
- Also, why does everything have “: A Novel” in the title? For real, you think we can’t tell it’s a novel? Stop with cutesy titles and just call things the names of novels! I know it’s really hard to think of good new names, but start now.
Could we maybe have pop songs retire the phrase, “You’re a good girl”? I get that they’re into the whole madonna – whore thing, but can’t we retire it?
- Note: it is ok to use the phrase, “You’re a good girl” if the song is about an actual canine. But you can’t then put sexual euphemisms or overt sexual stuff in there because dogs can’t consent.
- We are happy to see women’s heads back on covers.
- Misogyny, I hate you.
