Some Exhibits in YA coverage

Exhibits A-D of sexism in MSM coverage of young adult books in the last couple of weeks.

  1. Exhibit A is breathtakingly sexist (and deeply problematic in terms of race and disability) in the way it talks about the protagonist and YA in general. The others all feature exclusively white men--three in People (B), two in Entertainment Weekly (C), three in the Wall Street Journal (D). And then some guy ranted in the Telegraph about how those read-women/POC reading challenges persecute white men, because won't anyone think of the white men?
  2. So, why are people so touchy about sexism and diversity?
