The fact that she even agrees that Ana is a good role model is just so disappointing to me. Anyone that thinks Ana is a good role model for any woman anywhere really needs to rethink their priorities. If E.L. James doesn’t already have a daughter, I really hope she doesn’t breed. I would so pity that kid.
She’s got two kids-both boys. I wouldn’t like to be in their place.
Bah, my cat would be a better role model.
No. No. No.
Don’t get me wrong: I don’t like 50SoG. I think that’s obvious by now. But this? This goes beyond that.
Ana is my idol, Strong, thoughtful, glassy, intelligent, determined. She is an Amazing role model for young women
A reader paid
Icy James a very nice (if factually inaccurate) compliment, and does Icy James say Thank you! or You’re so sweet! or Glad you liked it! ? No. She says:
I agree. :)
And nothing else.
That is, without a doubt, the most disgustingly smug comment from a professional author I’ve ever seen. You agree? You agree?? Forget whether it’s true — it would have been narcissistic for Susan Collins to respond this way about Katniss fucking Everdeen, who actually is a fucking role model. I wouldn’t take it from Jane Austen talking about Elizabeth Bennet. (Jane Austen with Twitter would have been epic.) You just — you just don’t do that.No. No. No.
The only thing more full of shit than Fifty Shades of Grey is
Snowqueens Icedragon E. L. James herself.
